Commanding Start for the 2nds

AMCC 2nd XI 149 for 3 (22 overs) WIN v Oswestry 146 all out (46 overs)

Winning the toss on a green track was an important start, but it was the support of Manors young bowling attack that made the biggest impression. 16 year old Kieran Carroll (1 for 25) and new 18 year old signing Muhammed Jaffar (1 for 27) probably deserved more luck, but were then superbly supported by an excellent tight attack with Ricky Bassi (2 for 22), Scott Bryson (2 for 22) taking crucial wickets. Ably supported by the evergreen veterans of Steve Knowles (2 for 26) and Abdul Rahim (2 for 9) benefiting from excellent fielding and catching.

The start of Manors batting reply was then hit by an excellent initial spell by Oswestrys fast bowler Patrick Marshall – before finishing with 3 for 53. Skipper for the day Shozab Haider proving has quality though with an outstanding 83 not out – well supported in a 132 partnership by Scott Bryson. Shozis knock from only 69 balls being authoritative and taking the sting from Oswestrys attack with shots all round the ground, including 12 fours and 2 sixes.

A superb start to the season with a number of more established players missing through 1sts demands, injuries or football – showing great team spirit and real ability in all aspects of their game.
