Back to 2009 fixtures  

Sky v Rose & Crown

Tuesday 26 May 2009, Victoria Park
Sky won by 5 wickets

Sky lost the toss and were put into field

Sky: 142 for 2 in 15.3 overs
Aleem Hussain 50*
Javed Soomro 50*

Rose & Crown: 141 for 3 in 16 overs
Daniel 51*
Patrick Heaphy 45

Sky continued their unbeaten start to the season by defeating Rose & Crown in a fixture played in windy but clear conditions by 5 wickets.

R&C innings was a built around an impressive second wicket partnership between Daniel and Patrick.

However, once Daniel departed the run rate never really kicked on and after 16 overs with the score on 141, Sky felt they had been let off the hook, particularly given the poor quality of their bowling.

With Javed and Aleem opening the innings, Sky got off to a decent start moving along at the required 8 per over.

Once both had retired for well constructed 50s the middle order, despite the best efforts of the R&C bowlers, managed to to reach their target of 142 with 3 balls to spare.
