Having won the toss, the Ducks went into Batt with the Star batsmen " The Rocket Zulki " back fresh from his injury looked dangerous and took the attack to the Callys, scoring at an average of 10 an over smacked the ball to all parts of the park helped on the other end by " amir whirlwind khan ".

The rocket retiring on 50, thrown in was the " Dynamite Sibet ", again igniting the ball with his dynamic batting stokes and taking the openers out with the ball. Once the wirlwind had settled, the " Bomb Ahmed " was set who blew the ball from all angles with bat and bowl.

Lastly and not to mention the " Tactician " what can I say he did get the Golden Duck ??. Ah, nearly forgot we had our first " Diamond Husnain Duck " well done to him for sparkling the team name.

Callys made a good start but after loosing the opening batsmen they never kept upto the run rate with excellent opening bowling from Sibet and Ahmed, the over rate was always exceeding, well batted by Faisal.

Match reduced to 14 overs due to 7pm start. This top of the table clash in the red league was keenly fought with the Ducks taking the plaudits.

Ducks maintained their 100% start to the season inflicting a 32 run defeat on the Caledonian Conquerers.

Having won the toss The Ducks elected to bat. Some lacklustre bowling from Cally's was punished early on with the Ducks opener retiring on his 50. T

revor Semper and Waqar Ali came into the attack to stem the flow of runs. Cally's were set 149 to win off the 14 overs.

The Ducks bowlers performed well and made it difficult for the Cally's big guns to fire. Only M Fazal (51 Not out) had any answers to thier varied and disciplined bowling. In the end Ducks won comfortably.
