Shah and Lavelle set up victory over Oman

Shah hits century during friendly at Emirates Old Trafford

A stand of 198 between Owais Shah and George Lavelle set Lancashire Second XI/Academy up for a 65-run win against Oman at Emirates Old Trafford yesterday. 

After coming together at 8-2, the pair batted fluently for 28 overs to put the Red Rose XI into a strong position. 

Young opener Shah smashed 129 runs from just 110 deliveries including 16 fours and three sixes. 

Lavelle supported him with a brisk 86 from 87 with eight fours and a six. 

With the pair eventually dismissed, Tom Bailey (38) and Sam Perry (47*) added some late runs to take the total to 329-8 from 50 overs. 

Tom Hartley then stole the show with the ball taking 6-58 to halt Oman's progress, after they had made a decent start to reach 65 without loss. 

Bailey (1-45), Graham Onions (1-24) and Jack Morley (1-25) all claimed a wicket apiece as the hosts restricted Oman to 264-9 to seal victory in an entertaining clash.
