Island won the toss, elected to bat and came out swinging. The Wrong'uns normally tight bowling was dispatched to all parts of the ground with certain amount of luck and sometimes considerable skill.
The much needed breakthrough came with the Wrong 'uns first bowling "Jono" making his first team debut,bowling a lively seam and sharp a line started to make inroads into the Island batting order. After a two dropped catches off the first two balls he finally got the dangerman Dammika with his third delivery caught at slip.
Island although losing wickets at regular intervals kept up the constant onslaught of the Wrong'uns bowling right into the final over.

Chasing 176 to win, the Wrong'uns opening pair of Paddy and Ames got off to a good start. Hitting the boundary on numerous occasions all the time being told that they "only had one shot" between them by Island's chirping keeper.
As the game progressed astute tactical judgement by the Island skipper saw his men take up fielding positions on the boundary. The wickets fell as the Wrong'uns battled with the run rate and eventually Island community won the game.
Full credit and good luck to Island for their future games. As for the Wrong'uns they head into the 2nd division optimistic of a winning campaign!!!!
