OLI Westbury hit a century as Himley defeated league leaders Leamington.

Hosts Himley put Leamington into bat at Stourbridge Road but had to be patient before making the first breakthrough.

Openers Harrison Smith (56) and Jonathan Wigley (27) put on 65 for the first wicket as the visitors started strongly.

However, James Lunn and Stuart Wedge struck to remove the top four.

William Mashinge (39) and Oliver Currill (39) offered middle order resistance before Aqab Ahmed (3-66) got in on the act to take key late wickets.

Leamington ended their innings on 204-9 after 55 overs.

In reply, Westbury's unbeaten 106 helped Himley on their way to back-to-back victories.

He and skipper Greg Wright (36) put on 96 for the first wicket to set up the success.

Nabeel Asghar took the scalp of Wright, Lunn (3) and Nipun Karunanayake (15) and Daniel Durman (22) fell to the bowling of Mashinge.

Chris Boroughs was two not out as Himley reached their target in the 48th over.

Himley captain Wright said: "It was an excellent performance from us, probably the most satisfying of the season so far.

"Oli did a perfect job for us and we batted around him really well. He's been faultless all season.

"It's been stop-start but hopefully now we can build and put some wins together and carry on the same this weekend."

They will now head to fellow mid-table side Barnards Green this Saturday.
