REPORT:

 

The Moseley team included 16-year-old debutant Owais Akram, in place of injured captain Fred Eburah and after a delayed start the Griffs were put in to bat in a game reduced to 49 overs per side .

Yet again the top order failed as Moseley slipped from 28 for 0 to 55 for 7 in the 21st over but a lower order fightback led by wicket-keeper Leckie, Nandra and Awan saw Moseley bat out their overs to reach a modest 123 all out with Barnt Green captain Andrew Sutton taking 4 for 41.

In reply, the hosts were soon struggling at 54 for 6 in the 20th over, with Singh and Nandra picking up three wickets each, including the dangerous Matt Lamb for just three. It was left to Alex Thomson to mop up the tail taking 4 for 21 as the Griffs secured their third win of the season by 20 runs.

Next week sees Moseley at home for only the second time this season against local rivals Knowle and Dorridge.
