Hard fought victory against Lichfield

Birmingham League Division Two
2nd XI
Aston Manor 204-9
Lichfield 202 all out
ASTON MANOR WON BY 2 RUNS

On a difficult wicket of variable bounce Abdul Rahim (40), Sharafath Yoosuf (36), Scott Bryson (26) and Adam Nevitt (26) all batted with great application and supported by some fine late hitting from Jack Hobbis (19) and Rikki Bassi (17no) saw the visitors close on a competitive total of 204-9. Rikki Bassi (2-34) got Manor off to a promising start with the ball, but a partnership between Will Davies (71) and Ben Stephens (39) appeared to tip the balance in favour of the hosts. However, Manors fielders supported their bowlers in fine fashion with a couple of run outs, including the crucial wicket of Davies. Shaun Carroll (4-44) then returned to the attack bowling a magnificent spell of in-swinging Yorkers, clean bowling the last three batsmen, to secure an exciting and important two run victory.
