Top Order Collapse Costs the Game Despite Spann and Forster Rearguard.

Sean Reeves shares his thoughts on another close defeat.

Warrington 187-ao (49.3overs) (Tinsley 4-46) Tattenhall 166-ao (Afzal 51, Forster 27, Spann 25)

Despite a lower order comeback, Tattenhall fell narrowly short in their run chase vs. Warrington.

Tattenhall captain, Glenn Coppack, won the toss and elected to bowl first on a sunny day at the Flacca. This decision was rewarded, as Warrington opener, Ashley Scholes (16), left a straight delivery, to give Tattenhall their first wicket of the day.

Brad McIntosh (36) played some nice shots, as the run rate accelerated towards five runs an over, before being dismissed by Gary Forster (15-4-58-3). Leaving Warrington 63 for 2. Alan Brock continued to bowl a very tight spell (10-3-39-0) and was perhaps unfortunate not to find himself a wicket. Aamir Afzal (15-1-36-2) was subsequently introduced into the attack, showing excellent control, as Warrington slipped to 106 for 5.

Warrington’s number 6, Malcolm Agar (41), helped re-build Warrington’s innings, putting away the bad balls. Dane Tinsley (10-0-46-4) showed significant improvements with the ball from recent weeks and bowled well to collect 4 wickets. An excellent piece of fielding from Dane to dismiss Warrington’s opener was also a highlight.

Wickets fell at regular intervals, as Warrington were bowled out in the 50th over, to finish on 187, despite some missed opportunities in the field.

Tattenhall’s reply began very strongly with Aamir playing some very high-quality strokes, Tattenhall 32-0 after 4 overs. However, wickets soon followed, with Mohammed Umer (7), Dane Tinsley (0) and Sean Reeves (4) all falling in quick succession. Waqar Hassan (13) played a couple nice shots before losing his wicket, while Ben Pearce (0) was adjudged LBW much to his disappointment, leaving Tattenhall 55 for 5.

Glenn Coppack (18) played some excellent shots, before being bowled for the first time in two seasons, Tattenhall now slipped to 67 for 6. Aamir fell for 51, as Tattenhall looked in huge trouble at 98-7. Freddie Cheshire (1) fell soon after, leaving Tattenhall 105-8.

However, a superb partnership between Gary Forster (27) and Ryan Spann (25) gave Tattenhall a glimmer of hope, as a 60 run partnership left Tattenhall 165 for 8. Spann, however, walked after edging a ball to the keeper and finally, Gary Forster was given LBW as Tattenhall fell 22 runs short.

Warrington’s Rob Batey (11-1-38-4) was the pick of the bowlers.

A disappointing defeat, as Tattenhall lost another tight game. Improvements with the bat and in the field are going to be needed if Tattenhall wishes to push up the league table.
