RESULT: SHIFNAL 20PTS BEAT MOSELEY 5PTS BY 46 RUNS

 

REPORT:

Batting first Shifnal made 210 for 7 off their allotted 50 overs thanks in the main to a fourth wicket partnership of 81 between Sookias, who top scored with 57 and Aucott, who made 40.

Dropped catches and injury to Griffs skipper Fred Eburah did not help the visitors cause and they were unable to bring back Phagura 0 for 19 and Rankin 0 for 9, both off seven overs due to time pressures to complete their overs on time!

In reply the Griffs slipped to 7 for 2 in the sixth over before a rain interruption reduced the overs to 44 and a revised DLS target of 204. With only Nandra, who topped scored with 32, Phagura and Thomson showing any real resistance the Griffs were bowled out for a disappointing 156 in the 42nd over.

Next week sees the Griffs at home to Shrewsbury, with the possibility of relegation looming and with only four games remaining, all against the top four teams in the Division. Nurse!
