Batting first the Bengal Tigers got off to a cautious start in the first
three overs only scoring five runs.
Rofiqul Kamali bowled very tightly from
his four overs only conceeding 16 runs on the very short boundaries of pitch
one; this set a good benchmark for all of VP's bowlers.
Hussein came on and
maintained the consistant bowling performance from the Victoria Park attack
and took two wickets. Victoria Park's fielding performance was not at its
best until Charlie Challinor ran out Bengal Tigers number three batsmen
Davie with a direct hit at the bowlers end.
The Tigers' opening batsmen, Cox
(41), was on form hitting 5 fours and a six before he was trapped lbw by
Hussein. Joe Laurie and Scott Doody both grabbed two wickets and restricted
Bengal Tigers to 107. This was without a doubt the best bowling performance
from the Juniors this season.
A good start was needed from the Victoria Park opening batsmen and that was
exactly how the innings began. After the first four overs Victoria Park
reached 50 without loss.
Scott Doody finally hit the form he was dreaming of
all season, scoring a determined 53 with 6 fours and a six.
Joe Fisher (42
not out) continued his fantastic form with his third consequetive unbeaten
knock in the VPCCL and Fisher went on to hit the winning runs for Victoria
Park in the tenth over.
