Winning Draw Against Redditch

Aston Manor 216 for 6 in 45 overs
Redditch 186 for 8 in 45 overs
Winning draw to Aston Manor

The two teams looked fairly evenly matched, both consisting of 3 adults and the balance being u15s and u13s. Manor were put into bat opening well with Sugar (41) and Alex Rose (38), a partnership of 74 in good time. Drinks bought about a wicket and a tight spell from Redditch over the next 15 overs saw 3 more wickets fall for only 42 runs. The ship was steadied with the skipper (42) as Redditch were rocked by u13 Amar Javid 52 no in 30 balls to take to the Manor to a more respectable 216.

The Redditch youngsters took the task well but were always kept below the rate by some exceedingly excellent fielding. Usman Rana took 4 for 51 later in the day, Yash Patel (1-27), Suger (1-23), Wily Wing Commander (2-31) and once again unlucky Reece Murray (0-40) closed off the Redditch run chase but couldnt winkle out the last two batsmen.

On the whole a successful day with some excellent aptitude and attitude from the youngsters of both sides. One of those days to be proud, the way cricket should be played.
