Meanwhile, Hanley Castle fell to a five-wicket reverse at Lye.

Only George Barrell (10) and William Thomas (14) could notch up double figures for Hanley who were bustled out for 82.

Raja Nawaz (4-38) and Nadeem Hussain (3-14) were pick of the bowlers for Lye who psoted 84-5 in their reply to claim victory.

Hanley Castle make the journey to Eastnor on Saturday while Malvern take on Rushwick.
