2s also lose against Pelsall

2nd XI
Birmingham League Division Two North
Aston Manor 171 all out
Pelsall 172-2

This certainly was not Manor’s weekend as the 2nd XI were left to lament on one of their poorest performances for a long time. Although they were seriously disrupted by unavailability, they would have been extremely disappointed to be bowled out for 171 on a good batting track. Mohammad Aquil (47) was the only top order batsman to show the required application, and it needed a splendid partnership between the determined Trent Turner (41no) and skipper Steve Knowles (25) to give the score a sense of respectability. Several Manor batsmen would do well to watch and learn from Turner about the importance of making the bowler get you out rather than gifting your wicket to him.

Despite a wicket apiece for Kieran Carroll and Avon Turner the hosts cruised to an easy victory on a very forgettable day for Aston Manor Cricket Club.
