2nds Win Again – This Time vs Moseley Ashfield

Aston Manor continued there recent good form with an excellent all-round display at Moseley Ashfield.

Having won the toss the Manor skipper elected to bowl on a very green track. It proved to be the right decision as the hosts lost their first 3 wickets with only 23 runs on the board, with debutant Ashfaq Ahmed (2-26) and Steve Knowles (1-16) making the most of the helpful conditions.

A great partnership of 117 between Shah (59) and Azam (54) took Moseley Ashfield to 140-3, and it looked like The Squirrels would be chasing a big total. However, some excellent bowling at the death from the ever improving Shaun Carroll (2-28) and Abdul Rahim (2-50) saw the final score at 208-9. The bowling was backed up by some fantastic fielding, in particular from Sajaid Amir who chipped in with 3 catches and a run out.

In response Manor never looked in any danger as Sajaid Amir (48no), Shahid Kureshi (41no), Manni Sehmbi (40) and Abdul Rahim (39) took the attack to the hosts bowlers, getting home with nearly 10 over to spare.

The result lifts The Squirrels up to third in the table, with two very important home games up next against Wombourne (2nd) and Lichfield (1st).
