Strug­gle against Kings­ley

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

weather did not look promis­ing. Prest­bury lost the toss and where put into bat. They soon raced to 51-1 off only 5 overs with a rapid 29 from Max Jones.

He was sup­ported by Ak­bar Vohra who also showed some great ap­pli­ca­tion in dif­fi­cult con­di­tions to score 43 and Prest­bury ended on 124 all out. The rain came to show its face at tea but passed by the time Prest­bury were ready to take the field. Ab­hirup Biswa opened the bowl­ing with fan­tas­tic line and length and was un­playable. He con­tin­ued with this line and bowled his full 14 straight through, fin­ish­ing with fig­ures of 14 overs for 9 runs, tak­ing 7 wick­ets. A man of the match per­for­mance.

He was backed up with some ag­gres­sive bowl­ing from cap­tain Kieran Robin­son who some­how only picked up 1 wicket with fig­ures of 9-26-1.

Lis­hanth Kan­thasany took two wick­ets; one a fine di­rect hit run out from ex­tra cover. He then re­moved the fi­nal wicket turn­ing the ball away from the left-han­der straight into Jack Cook­son’s gloves who also had a much im­proved per­for­mance hold­ing on to three catches.

Next up for Prest­bury cc 2XI is As­ton cc at home.

Can they make it three in a row ?
