Trafford MV pick up good away win
10:19am Monday 26th August 2013 in Sport
TRAFFORD MV won the toss and, on an unpredictable wicket, asked Cheadle Ladybridge to open the batting.
The wicket was damp and green following heavy overnight rain and conditions were to prove decisive in this fixture.
MV's opening bowlers showed some fiery pace and Rashid Parvez with 4 for 25 and from Mo Saquib 5 for 25 to set the standard and Hamza Butt stifled the home side’s run rate with 12 overs of tight accurate off spin bowling whilst conceding only 16 runs - an excellent effort.
MV were pleased to bowl Ladybridge all out for 68 off 40 overs.
MV had a shaky start and lost a wicket after only seven balls for two runs - not a good start.
However Dave Lancaster 30 no, and Jahinger Mushtaq, 28, put together a good partnership and MV managed to win the game in the 16th over by eight wickets.
This was an excellent and much needed win for MV who have been sitting too close to the relegation zone this season.
