Last Ball Defeat For Sunday 1sts

Aston Manor 1st XI suffered a last ball defeat in an exciting Lichfield League Sunday Division One game against Wednesbury at Church Road.

Manors innings was built around some solid and impressive batting from youngsters Nabeel Asghar sponsored by RK-SIPS Design Limited (71) and Adam Rana (54), and combined with a late flurry of boundaries from Asif Iqbal (18no) the Squirrels closed on a respectable, if under par, total of 201-5 from their 40 overs.

Manors young bowlers however made life very difficult for the visiting batsmen with 14 year old Brinda Phagura and 16 year old Shaun Carroll being particularly impressive. Adam Rana completed a fine all round performance with a couple of wickets but Wednesbury reached the last over needing 7 runs to win with 4 wickets in hand. Unfortunately an edge over the slips for 4 put the visitors in pole position and they scrambled home for the winning run off the last ball of the match.
