Cup 1/4 final: Victoria Park Juniors v Sky

Thursday 16 July 2009, Victoria Park

Victoria Park Juniors lost the toss and were put into field

Sky: 196 for 5 in 16 overs
Aleem H 52*
Imran Khan 48*
Rizwan S 29
Jem Carter 4-0-34-2
Soyfur Rahman 4-0-32-1

Victoria Park Juniors: 151 for 3 in 16 overs

The Juniors gave Sky a very good start on pitch three and after just four overs Sky rocketed to a total of 53 without loss. Sky's opener Aleem hit a quick fire 50 and struck ten fours to the boundary.

Sky were looking to score at least 200 especially as they had wickets in hand with the score at 101 after eight overs. The Juniors began to bowl straighter and fuller and were rewarded with a brace of wickets.

Jem Carter took figures of 2 for 34 and was very unlucky not to get more wickets to his name; two drop catches in one over cost the Juniors of putting a halt to Sky's innings early. From 14 overs Victoria Park did very well to peg back Sky's run rate with the score at 161 for 5.

In the last two overs Sky's Imran Khan accelerated and scored 35 runs to push Sky's grand total to 196.

The Juniors needed just over twelve runs an over for victory. Despite losing an early wicket the Juniors got off to a good start .

Mehdi scored a rapid 50 and Jamshaid Mirza was scoring freely before he was dismissed for 25. Sky's opening bowler Hassan bowled tightly claiming two wickets for 24.

After eleven overs the Juniors scored 110 runs, still short of the required rate; normally this would have been a very good competitive start especially on pitch three. In the end the rate was beyond the reach of the Juniors as they reached 151 in their 16 overs.

Sky were very well deserved winners and the best of luck to them in their quest for silverware.
