Sunday 1sts Cruise To 102 Run Victory

Manors Sunday 1st XI cruised to a comfortable 102 run victory away at Cannock Wood on Sunday.

The squirrels elected to bat first on a wicket that was actually a section of rolled outfield! Despite unpredictable bounce Manor put on a highly respectable score of 242-7 with the main contributions coming Abdul Rahim (53), Ryan van Nierkerk (43), Asif Iqbal (42), Darren Baker (39) and skipper Dom Ashton (18no).

It would have been far too dangerous for Ryan to have bowled on this surface and so he showed his prowess behind the stumps taking three catches and two stumpings as Cannock Wood were dismissed for 140. Relieved of wicket keeping duties, Patrick Knott (3-25) led the way with the ball with the other wickets being shared by Reece Murray (2-12), Rikki Bassi (2-16), Asif Iqbal (2-49) and Usman Rana (1-14).

Perhaps playing on this pitch might make a lot of players realise how lucky they are to have the wicket and facilities at Church Road, although the opposition were splendid company in the nearby well appointed pub!
