4ths Win in Style

Moseley 4ths 192 for 9 off 45 overs.

Aston Manor 4ths 197 for 1 off 24.1 overs.

A WIN to the manor.

Put into bat on a good looking strip Moseley looked pleased.

1st ball dropped at square leg…… M Davis went on to 97…

Taseel (1/17 off 6) and L Rake (0/46 off 10) stuck to the task well with little success, although many edges flew through slips. At drinks Moseley at 96 for 1 looked set for good score.

The more sedate pace of the Knowles pairing took over, holding down the scoring rate as Geoff with a 2nd over double wicket maiden lead the way. As Moseley tried to accelerate wickets came, Steve 3/ 48 off 14 and the wily old Wing Commander yet another 5 /54 off 12.

Moseleys total of 192 for 9 looked achievable but weve been here before….

Alex Rose opened with Usman Rana, Ussie falling at the end of the 4th over. Jagit Sandhu joined the 16 year old and the fireworks began.

Some quite bludgeoning shots ensued, some exquisite touches, some classy cricket shots and an alarming run rate that left Moseley reeling.

A maiden 100 for Alex 102 n.o. off just 71 balls CONGRATULATIONS … simply brilliant.(14x 4s; 3x 6s)

Jagit 81 n.o. off 66 balls …simply majestic.( 9x 4s; 4x 6s)

A 171 run unbroken partnership off 121 balls with an almighty 6 off Jag to take victory.
