Island Community v Bengal Tigers

Wednesday 27 May 2009, Victoria Park

Island Community won by 6 wickets

Island Community lost the toss and were put into field

Bengal Tigers: 85 for 6 in 14 overs
Andy Cox 30
Tim George 17
Kirk Fleming 3-0-15-4

Island Community: 86 for 1 in 9.3 overs
Tanjeem Chowdhury 50* retired
Joe Tousent 18
Tim George 0.3-0-6-1

Bengal Tigers won toss and chose to bat. An opening stand of 37 off the first 6 overs was a solid start when Miran bowled John Davie for 7, then Andy Cox and Tim George put on another 32 before top scorer Cox fell caught behind by young Joe Tousent off Dammika Silva for 30.

That was the 11th over and the run rate barely crept over 6 runs per over in a game reduced to 14 overs per side. In a remarkable last over, Kirk Fleming took 4 wickets with his first two and last two balls, finishing with 4 for 15.

But the Tigers total was never enough for a strong Island batting line up. Tanjeem Chowdhury and wicketkeeper Joe Tousent were quickly ahead of the required rate.

Just after Tanjeem retired on 50 not out (off just 24 balls), Joe the wicketkeeper was ironically stumped for 18 but Island were left requiring just 4 more to win off 28 balls.

Mo Rahman came in and hit the winning boundary off his first delivery because he was desperate to get home to see the Champions League final - he normally plays himself in for 6 overs before hitting any boundaries! - and thus wrapped up a comfortable win for Island.

The game was played in the usual excellent spirit typical of the VPCCL.
