Loss Against Walsall in the WM Cup

WM Cup
Opposition: Walsall CC
Result: Lost

AMCC 98 for 6 Wkts in 20 Overs
Walsall 99 for 5 Wkts in 19.3 overs

Against a strong team from Walsall this was always going to be a tough match but the lads commitment and effort was excellent. Batting first Mo (24) and then Amar (28) created a solid base but against tight bowling and for the first time this season fielding to match that of the Manor team the total of 98 always looked a little short.

Bowling then started OK but not at the tight level it has previously been and against an excellent opening pair who put on over 60 it was always then going to be difficult. Sahal with an opening burst of 4 – 0 – 13 – 0 was steady but no wicket breakthrough meant patience was required.

Again fielding was excellent with everyone taking their turn. With the tie seeming to be heading easily to Walsall, Usman and Amar then turned things on their heads and created some panic with 2 wickets a piece – Usman 4 – 2 – 12 – 2 and Amar 2.3 – 0- 12 – 2 but at the end the 15 or 20 runs that were short in the batting made the difference.
