Shafqat oversees run chase for Greys Green

GREYS GREEN ran out winners away to TWYFORD AND RUSCOMBE on Sunday.

GREYS GREEN ran out winners away to TWYFORD AND RUSCOMBE on Sunday.

Although the Twyford openers fell early, a third wicket stand, made at great speed, threatened to take the game completely out of Greys Green’s reach. However, Shafqat bowled Barrable for 29 and soon after Skilleter bowled Weir for 51.

The complexion of the game had changed and thereafter the visitors always had a semblance of control and it was only an unbroken ninth-wicket stand between C Fort and Berry that lifted the hosts’ score to defendable proportions.

Set to chase down 173, Greys may have been in trouble had Shafqat’s simple offering been accepted but the opening pair gradually overcame a good opening spell from Hackett and Khan before starting to prosper. Knight eventually fell for 57 and a second wicket fell immediately, leaving Greys Green at 80-2.

Joined first by Skilleter and then Rooke, Shafqat oversaw a successful chase with an undefeated 67 as Greys reached their target with seven wickets and two overs to spare.
