Tamworth vs Aston Unity
Tamworth won the toss and put Unity in. Sam Bogle was the pick of the Unity batsmen with 34 off 32 balls. Danushka (25 off 8) looked like he was going to be dangerous hitting 4 sixes in 5 balls, but he had the misfortune to find himself in the middle of a hattrick from Daniel Gilbert (20 balls 4 for 17). Unity finished on 108 all out off 96 balls.
Tamworth got off to a slightly shaky start with their first wicket falling on the 8th ball. Unfortunately for Unity the match swung firmly in Tamworth’s favour with Joshua Rudge (54 off 23) and Jake Flower (51* off 20) both scoring 50s. Tamworth cruised home to victory by 8 wickets with a full 22 points.
Four Oaks Saints vs Aston Manor
Saints batted first scoring 164-4 off their 100 balls with Stefan van Dyke 72* off 42 balls and Ashley Hipkiss 50 off 42 balls. This didn’t prove to be enough as the Aston Manor batsmen managed to knock it off with 13 balls and 5 wickets to spare. Haider 28 off 20, Najib 69 off 28.
