2nds continue to shine against Eastnor

2nd XI
Birmingham League Division Two (South)
Eastnor 242 all out
Aston Manor 244-2

Manor’s promotion hopes continue to shine as they crushed Eastnor by 8 wickets with a thoroughly professional performance at Church Road.

Despite a fine innings from opener Ian Milton (77) Manor always kept the score rate in check with some good tight bowling from Craig Reynolds (2-32), Jason Furnell (2-38), Shaun Carroll (1-32) and Stephen Knowles (1-34). The hosts were keen and sharp in the field and were rewarded when some fiery bowling from Avon Turner (4-53) saw the visitors dismissed for 242 on an excellent batting track.

Eastnor were in need of early wickets to put the hosts under any pressure but they were thwarted by a splendid opening partnership between Andrew Forman (103no) and Kamran Zaman (77). Both players hit quality shots all around the ground, and following Zaman’s dismissal, firstly Sahal Malvernkar (17), and the impressive Jason Furnell (21no) kept Forman company as he completed a superb century to see Manor through to victory with 10 overs still remaining.
