2nds secure tense victory

2nd XI
Four Oaks Saints 163 all out
Aston Manor 167-8
ASTON MANOR WON BY 2 WICKETS

Manor’s 2nd XI also maintained their 100% start to the season with an exciting and tense victory at Church Road.

Despite some excellent bowling from Steve Knowles (5-48) and Shaun Carroll (4-36) the visitors were able to post a very reasonable total of 163 in difficult batting conditions. Kieran Carroll (1-27) grabbed Manor’s other wicket.

Saints veteran Paul Smith (15-2-17-3) made great use of a helpful track to help reduce Manor to a perilous 60-6 and set up a seemingly likely victory for his side. However, there is a lot of depth in this young Manor team and a wonderful partnership between Rikki Bassi (63) and Yash Patel (39no) turned the game on its head and enabled the hosts to secure a memorable success.
