Played at Victoria Park
Report by Suhail Shahid
Result: A true park cricket team where three
players pulled out on the match day due to geninue reasons which had
a big impact on the final result. The game itself was an exciting
high scoring game of cricket played in excellent spirit. Old
Fallopians scored 159 for 0 wickets in 14 overs. Sky scored 160 runs
in 13 overs at loss of 2 wickets and won.
Old Fallopians won the toss and elected to bat.
Batting : Farhad and Bilal opened - Farhad was in excellent
form hitting two sixes and nine fours on his way to 60 retired.
Suhail came in and hit three towering sixes and four fours on his
way to quick fire 43 not out. Bilal batting well throughout 14 overs
for his 40 not out. We missed at least 25 runs got due to foot
injury that Bilal faced in the last game going for tough catch. 159
off 14 overs was an excellent effort.
Jack Wright started well and got his reward with a wicket due to an
excellent catch Sheraz took running to his left on long on boundary.
Sarwar was not in good form from other end and the lack of two
fielders did not help as we leaked early runs. Then we dropped two
vital catches - one by the keeper and other at long off. Thw
opposition only hit one six and batted sensibly. Our bowling was
hampered by a lack of fielders as we batted with seven players and
with two injuries we only had five fit players. The opposition took
advantage and batted sensibly hitting into the gaps.
