Cup: Dover Castle v Traditional Corsairs

Tuesday 12 July 2005, Victoria Park

Dover Castle won by 57 runs

Dover Castle 177-4
Junaid 50 retired

Traditional Corsairs 120 all out
Sibet 4-0-29-3
Block 3.3-0-20-3

Traditional Corsairs' Nimo Ahmed writes: Dover Castle won the toss and elected to bat on a lovely sunny evening - no surprises there! Junaid immediately put the Traditional Corsairs' bowlers to the sword with an aggressive quickfire 50. 

Dover scored 99 off the first 8 overs and good late hitting from Nadeem and Abbass ensured a total off 177 for 4 off the allotted 16 overs in spite of better bowling in the latter 8 overs from the Corsairs. 

The Corsairs started their reply well scoring 91-3 off the first ten but these 3 wkts (all bowled by Sibet, finishing with 3-29) proved decisive. 

The Corsairs' unstoppable Victoria Park campaign came to an abrupt halt as Nigel Block picked up 3-20 to ensure the Corsairs were all out for 120.

The one low-point of the evenly fought contest was when competitive banter from two aggressive and talented teams degenerated to personal verbal confrontations which Victoria Park cricket can well do without - thankfully these incidents were quickly dealt with by the Corsairs' skipper and Dover Manager. 

All in all, it was a good cricket match between evenly matched sides with Dover proving the better batting side on the day.
