Wilnecote victorious

25.05.2013 Aston Manor 4ths vs Wilnecote 2nds

Aston Manor 4ths 165 all out
Wilnecote 2nds 166 for 7
Aston Manor lost by 3 wickets

Batting first Manor failed to establish any firm partnerships versus a determined Wilnecote attack. Poor shot selection and defensive awareness saw wickets falling at regular intervals. By the 21st over Manor had slumped to 54 for 7. A rout was avoided with Dave Woakes (70) conducting the tail to a more realistic target of 165.

Giving Wilnecote 56 overs to chase down victory Aston Manor took to the task with determination. Although all bowlers kept reasonably tight with wickets coming throughout the Wilnecote innings it was again D Woakes 3 for 15 who made the major inroads. One wicket a piece for F Sohib, Ozair, Jaleel and A Turner was not enough as the Wilnecote skipper L Edwards steered the home team to victory in the 50th over.
