Match Report 1st X1 v Moorlands (a) - 20 July

24 Jul 2019

Delph plummeted further towards the drop zone after a loss at Moorlands, their fourth straight league defeat. Their decision to bat first hit the buffers quickly amongst heavy swinging conditions as Moorlands kept them under firm control for their entire innings. Captain Alex Peters (21) batted gallantly before misjudging a Darrell Sykes delivery for an LBW. Sykes (5-23) went on to torment his opponents further whilst Andrew Walker (1-19) tied down his end, conceding little. Louis Aspeling (23) dug in and Rehan Afridi (44) added a brisk and breezy contribution before being bowled. Delph weren’t able to kick on in the later overs which ultimately cost them dearly and they settled on 158ao in 50 overs. Shoukat Ali (41) took the game to the visitors hitting them hard in the first ten overs to force a bowling reshuffle. Medium pacer Adam Hayes (3-18) found some purchase on the slow surface as the visitors began to even up the contest but Eddie Walmsley (29no) batted sensibly to frustrate Delph. With nearly 22 overs remaining, Moorlands cantered to a fairly easy victory finally on 159-6.
