4ths too strong for Bedworth

29.06.2013
Bedworth 3/4 vs Aston Manor 4ths
Bedworth 3/4 63 all out in 31 overs
Aston Manor 4ths 66 for 6 in 28 overs
Aston Manor won by 4 wickets, 20 pts

Heads called at the toss saw Manor take to the field to exploit a wicket that looked demonic. The only Bedworth resilience came from skipper Laurence Green (21) who holed out behind square to Mo Ozair 3-11. Connor Woakes mopped up the tail with 4-10 in less than 5 overs. Other wickets went to Farakh Sohaib 1-20 and Millky Byrne 1-3 in 5. Best wicket of the day a superb run out from the Manor skipper, W Turner swooping in from mid off to deliver a bullet to keeper Griffiths to snatch off the bails. (Really !!!!). 3 attempts to pick up a skewed slash, both batsmen arguing at the non-strickers, a right girly chuck, and a scrambled pick up to smash the stumps all over the place. (They could have run 3).

Back to the serious stuff where Manor had to negotiate 10 overs before tea amassing only 8 runs for the loss of 1 wicket. Resuming on a track still displaying variable bounce, seam, swing and 45 degree of turn, Manor held their nerve guided by Mark Christian (14) and finished off in style by Connor (14 n.o.) with a meaty 6 over deep mid-wicket.

A great victory away at a team who were 2nd in our division.
