Back to 2006 fixtures  

Traditional Corsairs v Victoria Park Juniors (Cup 2nd round)

Tuesday 4 July 2006, Victoria Park
Traditional Corsairs won by 5 wickets

VP Juniors 41 all out (10.3 overs)

Traditional Corsairs 42-2

Nimo Ahmed of Traditional Corsairs reports:

VP Juniors (weakened by lack of availability of players due to confusion over whether the match was going to go ahead that evening) won the toss and opted to bat first on a lovely evening.

VP Juniors captain, Harris, who has scored a number of 50s in VPCCL this year, suffered from over-exuberance when he decided to charge down the track for the first ball of the innings to sky a cover drive off the dangerous Naz.

Just when he thought the slice had cleared the in-field, Nadeem 'Jonty', Corsairs best fielder, sprinted 20 yards to take an outstanding catch over his shoulder.

VP Juniors never recovered from this blow and finished on 41 all out to some tight Corsair bowling.

Corsairs replied to win the match by 5 wickets with some sensible batting.
