DAC Beachcroft continued their renaissance in the Warwickshire Taverners Trophy with another victory over fellow lawyers DWF.
Jon Hill and Andy Thomson got the innings off to a solid start which allowed the cultured Mike Morris to come in and continue the run scoring, with most of his shots through the covers.
Hill blotted his copy book by backing away from one delivery with what appeared to be a fly in his eye and then proceeded to leave his helmet at square leg – as if he was settling in for a test match length innings – before he retired three balls later.
He then forgot his helmet. In his defence the Britannic ground was baking on day one of the official “heatwave”.
KPMG ended the semi-final hopes of Deloitte with a comprehensive victory by eight wickets.
Deloitte were limited to 90 for 7, with Shiv Sivanesan taking two for seven which included a double wicket maiden.
KMPG had one eye on net run rate and chased the target down in just half their allotted overs.
They will now hope that three wins from four games will be enough to secure the best runners-up spot from Groups A and B.
Shakespeares reluctantly had to concede the fixture against Deloitte, a combination of work commitments and injuries leaving them with just six players, while Wragge and Co and DWF agreed to a draw in fear of a deluge of rain.
Week 12: DAC Beachcroft 188-2 (Hill 36 ret, Thomson 35 ret, Morris 35 ret) beat DWF (Kilsby 35 ret) 132-7 by 56 runs; KPMG 91-2 (Weaver 35no) beat Deloitte 90-7 (Khan 35no) by 8 wkts; Deloitte beat Shakepeares by walkover; Wragge and Co drew with DWF.
