Manor hammer Walmley

22.06.2013
Aston Manor 4ths vs Walmley 4/6

Walmley 4/6 164 for 8 off 40 overs
Aston Manor 4ths 165 for 1 off 34.3 overs
Aston Manor won by 9 wickets, 20 pts

On a damp pitch Manor won the toss and elected to field in a match reduced to 40 overs. Walmley made slow but steady progress to reach 66–2 off the first 20 at drinks. Walmley skipper Amjid Kayani looked to up the ante scoring 90 before being out to Hamza Akhtar in a sublime spin attack to finish with figures of 5-27. Wickets also for Zafran Habib 1-18, Reece Murray 1-17, and Ronan Sheehan 1-24. Walmley closed on 164, a target we felt within the Manor range.

Manor took a solid but sure approach from 15yr Zafran 29 opening with 14yr Joe Griffiths who scored 53 not out. Amritpal Singh given free licence joined Joe to score another 52 n.o. as the Manor took victory by 9 wickets with 6 overs to spare.

14yr old Hamza bowled only 1 loose delivery in his 9 overs, Joe only 1 false shot in the 33 overs he faced, with Reece 16, Zafran and Ronan both 15 and superb fielders the Aston Manor youth can only push upwards.
