Having won the toss they elected to bat first. An unusual opening pair of Houldsworth and Ziggy Ali got opened the bowling for Harwood, with Maher and Aspinall both at weddings. A good start by the pair saw Ziggy get the opener lbw bringing in Littleborough’s sub pro Townsend.
The score moved along steadily until Ash got the opener cleaned bowled with his first delivery, but there wasn’t much joy after that for Harwood’s depleted bowling attack, with Littleborough scoring easily and some late big hitting took them to 281.
In response, Harwood got off to a poor start Matt Oddie chipping to point for a duck, and apart from Allan’s 26 and Ziggys 11 not out it was a pretty poor effort by Harwood who were all.out for 75
On to the next one.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
