Warton hold on for draw despite Buchanan's heroics

Five wickets for the spinner

Westgate picked up a winning draw against league leaders Warton this afternoon at Cross Hill Park.

Warton's captain won the toss and put the hosts into bat in overcast conditions. Two Westgate wickets fell early on with openers Craig Buchanan (3) and Garry Tattersall (6) being dismissed in the sixth and seventh overs respectively. The two new batsmen Dylan Conroy (18) and Andy Hill (66) then put on a partnership of 32 to steady the ship before Conroy was out LBW off the bowling of Graeme Crowther (4-69) in the 17th over. Andreas Arestidou (5) was out cheaply seven overs later, before Alex Briggs (65) came in and put on an excellent partnership of 116 with captain Andy Hill. The ball was despatched to all parts by the batsmen, with Briggs hitting six fours and two sixes in an impressive innings. The partnership was broken by Graeme Crowther in the 43rd over with the score at 169-5, and the hosts added an additional nine runs in the following two overs with Jack Huntington (5*) making a good contribution at the end.

In the second innings, in-form Zak Buchanan (5-22) dismissed the first three batsmen for just 16 runs in the opening twelve overs. Following this, Ryan Nelson (7) and his father Ricky Nelson (9*) put on a partnership of seventeen runs from eight overs until Buchanan got the crucial wicket of Ryan Nelson caught and bowled. Tom Barnfield (24) scored the most runs for Warton as he put on 29 runs with Nelson before being caught and bowled by Andreas Arestidou (2-7) to end the hosts' seventeen-over wicket drought. The wickets of Andy Thomas (7) and Phil Savage (0) came in the 41st and 42nd over, with Savage's wicket being Buchanan's fifth of the game. Buchanan took no further wickets in the game, but his five-wicket haul takes him to 25 wickets for the season. Following Savage's wicket Warton were 80-7, and ever since the eighth over Ricky Nelson remained defiant to help salvage a draw for the league leaders. Nelson and Crowther took the score to 85-7 from 45 overs, and therefore Warton got a draw but didn't take any points as they required 89 runs for a point. Westgate therefore took a useful nine points to boost their league position.
