Kenilworth skipper Steve Ledger’s decision to send the hosts into bat looked good when they were dismissed for 151 in the 40th over.

Sam Lang was the only Colt to raise the bat in notching 52 at better than a run a ball, while opener Brandon Sauer did his best to arrest a top order slide with 44 from 90 deliveries.

Ledger was playing a lone hand in his side’s reply, sitting at 61 not out as Kenilworth reached 2/96 as of the latest update.

With eight wickets left in the dressing room, Kenilworth needed just 56 more runs to book their place in the big dance.
