Manor lose against Smethwick

2nd XI
Birmingham League Division Two North
Aston Manor 253-8
Smethwick 254-4

On a perfect batting surface at Church Road, Manor batted with good consistency but only youngster Waqas Younis (75) was able to go on and make a major contribution. Zayn Hussain (43no), Mohammad Aquil (31), Austen Imber (31) and Abdul Rahim (28) also scored useful runs but it was Younis who shone with some excellent stroke play.

To be in contention Manor needed early wickets, but Smethwick’s experienced opener Yogesh Malhorta (116no) gave a perfect example of how to build an innings and go on to make a match winning contribution. Paul Smith, Austen Imber, Craig Reynolds and Abdul Rahim all grabbed a wicket but the visitors cruised to victory with 8 overs still remaining.
