Cannock Win In Low Scoring Match

Despite a spirited effort in the field, Aston Manor 1st XI suffered a 4 wicket defeat in a low scoring Sunday Lichfield Division One match away at Cannock.

On a poor batting surface only skipper Andrew Forman (33) and the very watchful Adam Rana (31) were able to make any significant contributions against a very good bowling attack as the Squirrels were dismissed for only 125.

However, the hosts found batting equally difficult against some fine bowling, especially by the ‘spin twins’ of Manahor Shmebi and Nabeel Asghar. At 90-6 Manor missed the opportunity to dismiss Cannock’s captain and they were made to pay as he steered the hosts to victory with two overs to spare.

Wickets were shared amongst Manors bowlers, and despite another narrow defeat a great deal of positives can be taken from the development of some of the young players in the squad as far as the opportunities that they are being given an the experience gained in several tight finishes.
