Sunday 2nds Lose Against Lullington

Due to the World Cup Manor sent a scratch side over to play the 1st XI fixture at Lullington.

MANY THANKS TO THOSE WHO MADE THEMSELVES AVAILABLE AND FULFILLED THE FIXTURE.

It was decided to go ahead at 40 overs and have tea and watch the game between innings, this went to plan, except after the 4th goal Geoff said lets get out and finish the game and everyone agreed. The tea was superb and the ground great.

We batted first and finished on 203 all out, but this was about 25 to 30 runs short, on an excellent hard fast track and shortish boundaries, several batsmen got in and then didnt go on.
Scott Bryson a very good 44, Asif 34, Alex Rose 20, Reese Fletcher 19. we did bat through till the last over though.

They were a very young side, and our bowling was not good overall, Adam opened looking very good and bowled quick and accurate, they struggled to get a bat on him, unfortunately he got a bit of an injury and couldnt come back to finish his overs. Asif from the other end was disappointing  8 overs for 42 as was Syed 5 overs for 38 Rimmer didnt have a good game with bat or ball unfortunately. Im afraid it was WC Geoff Knowles who bowled his 8 and took the 3 wickets for 33. Also what didnt help their no.3 who scored 103 no. was dropped three times.

It was a shame because it was a lovely afternoon at a lovely ground, but we lost by 7 wickets.

THANKS AGAIN TO THOSE WHO PLAYED.
