Caledonian Conquerors v Chats Palace

Monday 18 May 2009, Victoria Park
Caledonian Conquerors won by 120 runs

Chats Palace lost the toss and were put into field

Caledonian Conquerors: 213 for 1 in 16 overs
Trevor Sempert 50 Not Out
Amir Khan 55 Not Out
Mohammed Fazal 51 Not Out
Obaid Rahman 21 Not Out

Chats Palace: 93 for 7 in 13.2 overs

Trevor Sempert (playing his first game of the season for Callys) opened his account with a blistering unbeaten 50 inside the first 8 overs. Along with Amir Khan also scoring an unbeaten 55, they shared an opening stand of 84 before Sempert retired upon his half century. In came another debutant Mohammed Fazal who carried on where Sempert left off, also contributing an unbeaten 51. Chat's Palace fought bravely, but with 4 dropped catches early on, it was apparent it was not going to be their day.

Cally's posted their highest score of the season so far, setting a mammoth total of 213 off 16 overs. The only wicket to fall came from a run-out.

Requiring a meagre rate of over 13 runs per over, Chats started off well, with Peter Hatting looking solid with his attacking rearguard action. He punished the bad balls but defended the good balls and comfortably retired on his half century.

With spin brought into the attack the pace was taken off the ball and chats' had to work the ball around, but with wickets falling all the time, the final total looked very much out off reach. Cally's bowled with discipline with Mohammed Siddiqui impressing with a return of 3 wickets for 17 runs off his 3 overs.

Really a waste of time playing matches like these; community cricketer against top class club cricketers. Played in good spirits though!
