Warwickshire has managed to climb on the top list of the North Group’s points table with Cricket Tips. This turned out after their slender win of 2 runs while playing against the Northamptonshire. Chasing the target of 173 runs on the home side, they were going good well prior to losing their skipper Alex Wakely, who was actually leading their chase voyage, soon during the last ball of the match and they fell short of just 2 runs.
Richard Levi and Adam Rossington gave the rest of the order a perfect launch pad by putting on 58 with his opening show in just 4.3 overs. Levi did the maximum mutilation for the other team hitting 33 runs off just 13 balls faced by him. This included 5 hits to the boundary and 2 flying over it. Further taking charge, Rossington started hitting even harder under his second-wicket partnership with Ben Duckett.
Jeetan Patel managed to put a stop on the Warwickshire with taking off the two partners in the next two successive deliveries. Skipper Wakely soon took over and both Rob Keogh and he scored 52-runs of 18 balls before getting dismissed on the final ball of an awesome 16th over given by Colin de Grandhomme. Wakely was trying his level best to grab the maximum strikes covering his lower order, but few of the tight overs were heating up things.
With 13 left for the final over, the six hit on the first-ball itself gave way to igniting hopes, though they already had lost two wickets under pressure. Bringing a 50 for the captain, everything was going good prior to a run out when just 3 runs were needed of the final ball. The side regularly lost their wickets, however managing to score 172 runs. This was the major drawback and momentum loosing point of the match.
