Versus Water Orton

30 May, League, Home, Water Orton

Opening bowler Martin Rose struck in the first over, but Water Orton began hitting early boundaries on the slow rain affected wicket until held back by Abdul Rahim’s excellent four overs for 11 runs. Shashi Thakor removed the other opener and the visitor’s number 3 was later run out for 52, leaving Ansar Mahmood to complete his four overs for only 13 runs, aided by late economical bowling from David Woakes. The 131-5 total would usually just require steady batting, but dark clouds threatened rain and bad light. Ian Hudson hit a quick 17 but was caught behind in the third over off a lifting ball. Austen Imber’s five sixes and 11 fours in his 86 not out, and Abdul Rahim’s 13 not out took the Manor to 133-2 in 11 overs to secure the season’s first league victory.
