Reuters v Caledonian Conquerors

Thursday 1 May 2003, Victoria Park
Reuters won by 4 wickets
Caledonian Conquerors 115-3
Reuters 117-3

Kieran McKey of Reuters writes:

Caledonians won the toss and elected to bat on a windy and overcast evening. 

Caledonians made a brisk start but were soon pegged back by Omkar Joski taking a wicket in his second over. 

Omkar's lateral movement worried the batsmen and he struck again with a wicket in his next over. 

Caledonians number 4, "Wayne", came to the crease and played impressively straight. 

Reuters bowlers began to feel the pressure as Caledonians increased the run rate. 

As the innings came to a close Caledonians attempted to finish with a flourish but were hampered when a good stumping from keeper Mark Addis off Kieran Mckey's flighted delivery sent Wayne back to pavilion before he could make his fifty. 

Caledonians innings ended quietly with a total of 115 for 3.

Andy Wyatt opened Reuters reply and made a solid start. However, Caledonians soon struck with Mark Addis falling victim as he tried to hurry the pace. 

Henry Pelham came to the crease and played patiently in response to some probing bowling from Wayne. 

A change of bowling bought a change of attitude as first Henry and then Andy begun to take advantage of some short-pitched bowling.

The score moved on rapidly until Henry skied the ball to allow the keeper to make a simple catch. 

Soon after Andy holed out to long off and Reuters had two new batsmen at the crease. 

Navin Singh and Omkar Joski took a few balls to play themselves in before Omkar decided to hurry things along with some forceful stroke play. 

In the final over a straight six from Omkar tied the scores and single from the next ball sealed the win for Reuters.
