Back to Winning Ways Against Moseley Ashfield

18/06/11

Aston Manor 4s 212 for 6 in 45 overs
Moseley Ashfield 178 for 4 in 45 overs
Winning draw to the Manor

Put into bat the openers Turner and Fletcher (34) made steady progress against decent bowling on a pitch of extreme variation in both bounce and seam. By the time the openers fell, the wicket had calmed somewhat allowing some solid middle order batting to steadily increase the run rate, accumulating a decent total passing the 200 mark. Brijesh (35), Bilhal (38no) and Yo Parvez (24no) being the main contributors.

Again, Liam Rake (1/31 off 10) and Geoff Knowles (0/20 off 6) kept things tight as Moseley fell behind the rate. The introduction of Usman Rana (3/26 off 12) took out the middle order intent on ‘staying. From the other end the rest strived to take wickers to no avail. Once more a couple of catches went down to prevent us setting at the tail for the out right win.

On the whole a much more 4th-like performance.
