2nds Promotion Hopes Alive and Kicking

2nd XI
Birmingham League Division Two (South)
Sutton Coldfield 167 all out
Aston Manor 168-5

Another fine performance at Church Road saw Manor keep alive their hopes of promotion.

Manor’s bowling was impressive and accurate throughout, and the bowlers were supported by an energetic performance in the field which saw all ten wickets falling to catches! Steven Knowles (4-47) and Craig Reynolds (3-46) were the pick of the bowlers with Sahal Malvernkar (2-20) and Shaun Carroll (1-37) grabbing the other wickets. Tom Wright (54) showed great application with the bat for Sutton.

However, the wicket was not the usual batting paradise expected at Manor, and in the face of some testing bowling the hosts found themselves in a little trouble at 41-4. This season though the 2nd XI have tremendous depth in their batting and skipper Trent Turner (45no) led the revival with a typical organised and patient innings. Shozab Haider (40) gave his Captain quality support before some dynamic hitting from James Whittock (30no) saw Manor through to an ultimately comfortable and crucial victory.
