Manor win high scoring affair

Walmley’s innings began with early boundaries, but was soon interrupted by a David Woakes’ wicket. Barry Holbutt’s two overs for 12 runs and Austen Imber’s three overs for 6 runs restricted the hosts after the midway stage. Excellent bowling also from Martin Rose, Nick Farrell, Saj Amir, Shashi Thakor and Geoff Knowles kept Walmley to 191-1 from their 20 overs, including 111 not out from second team player Amjid Kayani.

In response, the Manor kept up with the near 10-an-over run-rate through boundaries and well-placed ones and twos, including Rob Bartlett’s industrious 24. Imber’s 132 not out included 11 sixes and 10 fours, and Farrell’s 11 not out included the final boundary, securing victory at 195-2 with three overs remaining.
