Put into bat in overcast conditions on a greenish wicket Moseley collapsed to 65 for 7 in the 22nd over, with only Aadam Din (27) offering any real resistance.
A fine eighth wicket partnership of 78 between Kishen Patel (44) and Naqaash Tahir (41) took the “Griffs” to 143 before Riley dismissed Tahir but Usman Awan (24) and Patel took the score to 177 before Edwards dismissed both batsmen in successive balls to end the innings.
In reply Shifnal’s innings followed a similar pattern as they slipped to 53 for 6 in the 17th over.
A stand of 80 between Aucott (58) and Murrell took the visitors to 133 in the 34th over, before Steve Sandhu made the crucial breakthrough and the end quickly followed when Aucott was caught behind the wicket off Eburah.
Man of the match was Naqaash Tahir who took 4 for 20 to add to his fine innings of 41 – what a signing!
