Monday 13 July 2009, Victoria Park
Victoria Park Juniors won by 7 wickets

Victoria Park Juniors won the toss and chose to field first

Bengal Tigers: 107 for 7 in 14.2 overs
Cox 41
George 28
Hussein 4-0-18-2

J Laurie 3.2-0-25-2

Victoria Park Juniors: 108 for 0 in 9.3 overs

J Fisher 42 not out

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.
