04.08.2017… Warks v Worcs…

Bears v Rapids

Edgbaston… Friday August 4th…

Rapids won by 5 runs

Ticket: £11 (Season Pass)

Attendance: 15,113

The largest home attendance of the season to witness the derby game with Worcestershire Rapids. Unfortunately, it ended with a 5 run defeat, in a game that the Bears were always chasing…

It was the Rapids Powerplay that did most of the damage. Colin de Grandehomme was hit for thirty runs in the fourth (his solitary over), and 83/1 had been reached by the end of the sixth. From such a position, the Bears did well to limit the Rapids to 190/7, Jeetan Patel taking 2/26 and Dom Sibley 1/20 from their four overs…

In response debutant Sibley made 49, and there were decent knocks from Ellioot and Thomason but the Bears were always just off the pace…
