Back to 2009 fixtures  

Cup 1st round:
Caledonian Conquerors v Ditch 

Tuesday 23 June 2009, Victoria Park
Caledonian Conquerors won by 41 runs

Caledonian Conquerors won the toss and chose to bat first

Caledonian Conquerors: 158 for 2 in 13 overs
Sajid Rehman 51 Not Out
Mohammed Fazal 47
D Brown 4 overs 25 runs 1 wicket
S Viaes 4 overs 38 runs 1 wicket

Ditch: 117 for 1 in 10.5 overs
S Viaes 50 Not out
Mohammed Siddiqui 3 overs 26 runs for 4 wickets
Waqar Ali 22 runs for 1 wicket

Ditch provided a stern test for a complacent Caledonians Outfit. The scorecard probably does not tell the full tale of a run fest on Pitch 2.

Due to the late start the game was reduced to 13 overs a side. Ditch forfeited the toss and Cally's elected to bat. Cally's Skipper Saj Rehman and in-form batsman Mo Fazal opened the batting at blistering pace taking a rate of almost 15 an over before Fazal was caught plum in front by the deceptive pace of D Brown in the 6th over.

The score was 73 before the 1st wicket fell. Saj Rehman retired after scoring his half century leaving the last four overs for the Cally's Middle order to exploit. Cally's set the guest side a competitive 159 to win off 13 overs. Ditch chased well and had the Cally's fielders regularly collecting the ball from the trees lining the boundary of pitch 2.

At 90 runs off 7 over the game was evenly poised. Needing 68 to win off 6 overs Ditch had Cally's pondering an embarrasing 1st round exit.

In came Mohammed Siddiqui into the attack after changing ends and the wind assisting his floaters he clean bowled 3 Ditch players and with 1 LBW he took his best figures of the season to date. 4 for 26 in 3 overs. A devastating spell that concluded the game in Cally's favour.
