Hold On For Draw Against Berkswell

Berkswell 240 for 8 off 45 overs
Aston Manor 198 for 7 off 45 overs

Losing Draw to Aston Manor

Despite an excellent start against the league leaders Aston Manor suffered defeat for the first time this season. A superb tandem opening spell had a strong Berkswell side 20 for 2 at 10 overs. The visitors recovered, steadily building then accelerating their scoring, helped in someway to luck and seven unfortunate catches dropped. In spite of this Manor toiled away, young Reece Murray 8 overs of leg spin took 2 for 43 (should have been 4 or 5). 2 wickets a piece for G-Man and Ussie, 1 piece for Sugar and Jagit.

Manor took to the task of chasing down 240 with some determination. Both openers fell to lifters, but at 10 overs we were still in the hunt. Tony Heaney (34) and Jagit Sandhu (62) lead the way with varied degrees of solidness at the other end, with the run chase steepening it was time to shut up shop. A dedicated 34 no. from Usman Rana guided us to close to secure a couple more points to keep Manor in 2nd position in the league.
