Manor Start the Season Off in Style

Aston Manor 1st XI got their Birmingham League campaign off to the perfect start with a comprehensive victory against newly promoted Eastnor at Church Road.

After early morning rain which reduced the match to 45 overs per side, Manor won the toss and elected to field first on a quick and bouncy track.

The visitors batsmen had no answer to the fiery pace of Julius Benjamin (1-24) and the superb swing and seam movement of Arfan Khan (5-31) as they collapsed to 52-7 before a limited recovery saw them finally dismissed for only 93. Young Warwickshire bowler Brinda Phagura (2-17) and South African Kyle Schreuder (1-18) were the other wicket takers in what was an outstanding performance in the field. Manor’s catching and ground fielding was of the highest order and has hopefully set a standard that will be maintained throughout the season ahead.

In reply Nabeel Asghar (25) and Jamie Johnson (21) got the hosts off to a solid start against a good opening attack before Schreuder (30no) ensured Manor coasted to a comfortable 6 wicket victory reaching 94-4 with 14 overs still remaining.
