High Scoring Affair vs Solihull Municipal

A date to remember – the sun shone – the real ale festival was on – and Aston Manor 1st XI were at home to Solihull Municipal. Don’t know where to start really it was an afternoon where records were meant to be broken.

A partnership of 189 between Taimur Imran and Ibbadat Thaman for the second wicket.

Taimur Imran (71 in 76 balls) Zaheer Suliman (21 in 20 balls) and Sahal Malvernkar (37 not out in 28 balls) all supported Ibbadat who finally scored 212 (in 149 balls) – wow what an innings – enjoyed by many supporters on a lovely sunny afternoon. Aston Manor ended up with a score of 378 for 5 off 48 overs.

Unfortunately, the Manor boys couldn’t just find that little bit extra and even though we seem to have found a new bowler in David Yeend – 5 overs 1-23 with Shaun Carroll and Qamar Abbas both taking 2 wickets and Ejaz Nawaz and Sahal Malvernkar taking 1 each. Solihull managed to hang on scoring 220 – 7 in their 52 overs – still the Manor are keeping up their challenge in the Warwickshire Premier League.

Our next fixture is against Bedworth next Saturday 9th June – here’s hoping for the sun.
