Back to 2009 fixtures  

Cup 2nd round:
Caledonian Conquerors v Pacific

Tuesday 30 June 2009, Victoria Park

Caledonian Conquerors won by 2 wickets

Caledonian Conquerors lost the toss and were put into field

Caledonian Conquerors: 138 for 5 in 15.1 overs
Mohammed Shakoor 41
Mohammed Fazal 30
L Faisal 4 overs 47 runs for 2 wickets

Pacific: 135 for 6 in 16 overs
D Tempany 70 Not Out
Waqar Ali 4 overs 36 runs for 2 wickets
Rick Davies 4 overs 27 runs for 2 wickets

Having won the toss Pacific decided to bat and opened the innings in disasterous fashion losing Lucias Faisal to a risky run out very cheaply.

Although Darren Tempany played a very attacking innings, he was given little support by his team-mates and actually came back into bat having retired with his half century already.

He bludgeoned a further 20 of off the last 10 deliveries to take the Pacific total to a respectable 135. Rick Davies impressed with the ball for the Cally's restricting the Pacific onslaught in the middle overs.

Cally's started the run chase with Mohammed Faisal taking the Pacific bowlers on. Cally's were averaging 10 runs per over throughout and were well on target.

With wickets falling all the time though, Pacific fought thier way back into the game. It was not until the last over when 2 runs were required, that the game was won by the Conquerers.

Only Mohamed Shakoor showed any resistance and stabilised the innings with his attacking stroke play and introduced us to the VPCCL version of Tillekeratne Dilshan's 'Starfish' (for those not in the know that is the 'scooping the ball over the keepers head' shot!).

Well done Cally's - we are into the quarter finals of the cup.
