Having made history last week by wining their first ever cup game in 5 seasons of trying, Island Community CC doubled their lifetime total of cup victories with a win over London Wanderers in the 2nd round.

Wanderers won the toss and elected to bat, and thanks to a number of dropped catches by Island's fielders, quickly ammassed 160 off their 16 overs, with Rob Morgan retiring on 50* after some big hitting.

A couple of fast yorkers gave Jack Stollery top bowling figures of 4-0-31-2 but none of Island's bowlers were spared Wanderers onslaught. It looked like a good total to defend on pitch 2.

Island's reply saw Kirk Fleming and Tanjeem Chowdhury repeating their good form of the season so far and it was a boundary midway through the 6th over that took Island to 74 without loss and brought up Tanjeem's 5th half century retirement of 2009 (22 balls).

Kirk was joined by Rob Jones but soon followed Tanjeem back to the pavilion (well, shade of a boundary side tree!) as a huge 6 brought his retirement on 54* of 30 balls.

Rob scored 38 not out and Mo Rahman 7* as Island passed Wanderers target without loss and with 3.1 overs spare.
