Sky v Tower Cavaliers

Monday 2 July 2007, Victoria Park
Sky won by 151 runs

Sky 153-3 declared (13 overs)
Javed Soomro 50 not out

Tower Cavaliers 2 all out
Javed 1 over, 2 runs, 4 wickets
Mahmood 1.2 overs, 0 runs, 2 wickets

"Javed Soomro, ostensibly Sky's experienced batsman turned in a stellar all round performance to lead Sky to a massive 151 run victory in the 1st Division league match against Tower Cavaliers who were dismissed for the sum total of 2 runs in their innings.

Having won the toss Sky's stand in captain Imran Khan opted to bat and the top order soon set about the Tower Cavaliers attack rattling up a score of 153 by the end of the 13th over with Javed retiring on 50.

Imran then decided to declare the innings, with hindsight, a wise decision given the forecast of heavy rains later that evening (resulting in the other two matches on the neighbouring pitches being abandoned).

Sky's captain later revealed that he felt his team had enough runs in the bank and that his bowlers would do the job, what followed was beyond even his wildest expectations.

Hasan Mahmood opened the bowling and with immaculate discipline ended his over with a maiden and a wicket, Imran then tossed the ball to Javed who not to be outdone by Hasan picked up 4 wickets including a memorable hat-trick. Hasan returned and mopped up the tail and that was that. Tower Cavaliers had been bowled out in 14 balls for 2 runs.

Sky therefore continue their unbeaten run and await sterner tests while Tower Cavaliers have the dubious honour of setting a new record for lowest total in the 15 year history of the Victoria Park Community Cricket League" - Rizwan Siddiqui of Sky
