Island won by 5 wickets
Tower Ravens won toss and elected to bat.
Tower Ravens 98 all out, off 13.0 overs
Tanjeem 4 for 14
Island Community 102 for 2, off 13.4 overs
Robert 49 not out
"Tower Ravens looked well set for a big score on 72 for 2 after 8 overs, but
when Ken fell to a great catch over his shoulder by Tanjeem running
backwards in the deep, the momentum changed Island's way.
Another good catch even deeper in the deep by Alamin saw Ian's anchor
resistance ended after scoring just 26 from 13 overs and Ravens were soon
all out for 98, 3 full overs short of their allocation.
Island's openers put on a steady 25 for the first wicket before Ajmal
took a stunning diving catch to dismiss John for 14 but that was the last
one they held. Several dropped chances allowed Tanjeem to maintain his
required run-a-ball rate and some typical big hitting from Robert meant that
when the second wicket fell at 71 at the start of the 12th over, Island only
needed 28 more to win.
When the scores were brought level and Robert on 45 not out and tried
for a winning six to bring up his 50 but his controlled pull shot only
produced a boundary four and he ended up on 49 not out, his highest score
A comfortable win for Island in the end with 14 balls spare" - Steve Hill of
"A terrible batting performance by the Ravens, closing the
