Traditional Corsairs v Tower Cavaliers (Cup quarter-final)

Wednesday 12 July 2006, Victoria Park
Traditional Corsairs won by 79 runs

Traditional Corsairs 158-6
Tower Cavaliers 79 ao

Nimo Ahmed of Traditional Corsairs reports:

On another lovely sunny Vic Park evening, Corsairs skipper, Nimo Ahmed, kept up his 100% record of losing the toss.

Tower Cavaliers asked the Corsairs to bat. Cavaliers struck early to claim the scalp of Vaseem 'WG Grace' Ahmed before the Corsairs got stuck into the Cavaliers bowling.

Knocks of 50 (retired) from Nimo and Ajaz 'Boycott' Rashid, 30 runs, ensured a big total by the Corsairs. 25 extras helped the final total of 158-6.

Cavaliers lost regular wickets in pursuit of the Corsairs total and never managed any prolonged partnerships to finish 79 all out, with Vaseem topping the Corsairs' bowling on 3-14.

The only remaining question is 'Is Ajaz's knock of 30 from 15 overs an all-time league record for the slowest batting?'
