2nds Throw It Away vs Lichfield

Lichfield 188-8

Aston Manor 175-9


Manor threw away a great opportunity to get their season off to a winning start as they lost 8 wickets for only 26 runs when victory had seemed a formality.

Some fine bowling by Ricky Bassi (3-51), Abdul Rahim (2-25), Shozab Haider (1-29) and Steve Knowles (1-34) had restricted the hosts to 188-8 from their 50 overs.

An excellent partnership between Rahim (80) and Haider (61) seemed to have set up a certain victory with Manor on 149-1, but an incomprehensible batting collapse saw them finally hanging on for a draw at 175-9 in a very exciting climax to a fine game of cricket.
