Adam Finch was the star man as Wolverhampton showed their class in Saturday’s match against Oswestry Cricket Club..

The bowler took six Oswestry wickets as his side picked up a comfortable win with a margin of 180 runs.

Oswestry looked to start quickly after Wolverhampton won the toss and chose to bat first.

And Roman Walker made sure of a quick start by trapping Wolverhampton’s Jack Stanley LBW after the side had reached just 12 runs.

The Wolverhampton pairing of Rahul Kaushal and Amritpal Singh proved tougher to crack for a while, as they took their team’s total runs up to 50 before Kaushal was bowled out by Ben Roberts.

Oswestry were 3-50 soon afterwards as Singh’s was caught out by Matthew Richards.

As things looked to be going well for Oswestry, they were then made to wait almost 150 runs until they took another wicket, as Charlie Home and Will Nield put together a formidable partnership, taking their side to 244 runs before Home was dismissed for 74.

Nield stood strong and defended his wicket until the end of the 40 overs, scoring an impressive 103 from 99 balls.

The hosts posted a target of 251-5, giving the Bordermen a tough task to achieve if they were to claim the win.

And the task was made more difficult when Oswestry’s top orders fell in a short space of time, with Wolverhampton reducing them to 5-29.

Richards, Josh Darley, Josh Coleridge, Alex Roberts and Alex Davidson were all dismissed, leaving Oswestry 223 runs away from victory.

Ben Roberts (12) and Roman Walker (24) were the only players to score double figures for Oswestry, as wickets fell around them quickly throughout the afternoon.

Finch dismissed Ben Roberts to take his third wicket in a row and his fifth of the day, before taking his sixth by taking out Archie James for a duck, topping off a stellar bowling display.

Oswestry were eventually all out for 71 and Wolverhampton claimed a convincing win.
