Shafqat shines

GREYS GREEN’S M Shafqat hit an undefeated knock of 63 to help his side secure a narrow victory against visitors LONGWICK on Sunday.

Longwick’s innings was held together by Morton, with helpful contributions from Byrne and Fuller, but they were aided by the hosts’ own poor fielding and catching. At tea Longwick had accumulated 161-9 on a wicket which still showed the effects of the previous day’s storms.

Butler and Knight got Greys off to a flying start but, as in the field, Greys were undone by their own mistakes and Longwick sensed an unlikely win when Greys slipped from 90-1 to 113-5 with good bowling from Bayliss, backing up the bowling of Strange but Shafqat, having already taken 4-63, played watchfully to guide Greys home off the penultimate ball to finish on 63 not out.
