CRICKET: Redditch Entaco 2nds slipped to their first defeat of the season as league leaders Worcester Nomads dominated to secure a 97-run victory last Saturday.

In reply, the Kingfishers lost early wickets and only a brave 98 from Asif Mukhtar and 39 from wicketkeeper Aaron Tozer offered any resistance as they were all out for 185.

Patrick O’Driscoll did the damage taking 7-27.
