Poor Performance Against Redditch 3rds

11/06/11

Aston Manor 4ths 171 for 9 off 45 overs
Redditch 3rds 175 for 5 off 40 overs
Lost by 5 wickets

Having a strong batting line-up, the skipper chose to set a target for Redditch to chase. Debut opener Reece Fletcher (21) started ok, unfortunately forcing shots on a pitch holding up the ball saw the demise of the majority of the Manor batsmen. Only Tony Heaney (24) and a cameo 54 from Amritpal (the beast) Singh saw any contribution to the score. Thankfully Geoff Knowles and Kieran Carroll stayed together to use the last 8 overs.

Other than Liam Rake (3/33 off 11), and a wicket each from Reece Murray and Geoff Knowles, Manor struggled to break through or stem the runs. Dropped catches were expensive as again the opposition cruised past the Manors total with 5 overs and 5 wickets to spare.

Not our best performance.
