ELCCC today met London Wanderers CC and realised cricket is still a
gentlemens game. We hope all the teams should come to play fair cricket and
let this game shine to the brightest.
ELCCC's captain most sustained an injury during his sunday league game
and had to drop out only to do scoring from the boundary. Syed was the
standing captain and without much luck lost the toss.
LWCC asked ELCCC to field first. LWCC made a slow start but after
sunny got out ralph came in to bat and showed a good straight bat technique
and hit some sixes over long off and several boundries all around the park.
He scored 51 n/o with a partnership of 80 with Chirag (31) before getting
retired. LWCC posted a decent total of 151 but for pitch 1 at vikki park it
often below par.
Marcus bowled excellently and took 2 wkts for 7 runs in his first
spell of 2 overs. ELCCC came to bat with the intentions of finishing the
game quickly and again boom boom altaf hit a 6 of the first ball.
Soon LWCC showed their bowling class with excellent changes and
brought the run rate down. Altaf was dropped couple of times before getting
retired on 52 n/o. Shak attack played well for his 21 but was held in deep
Syed(23 n/o), Yasir(11) and Umar (19) played excellently before waheed
scored a boundary of 3 ball of 15th over to get the winning runs. Both
innings were played with fairness and gentleman like without any umpires
decision challenged by either side. Good luck to both teams for coming
matches. - Mohit Gupta
Good game of cricket, LWCC batted steadily for their total. Hindle
showed good skill, everyone else played supporting roles. East London bowled
very well. East London's chase was well paced, hitting the odd boundary and
batting to the target very well. Both teams bowled more than three overs of
wides (which effectively made this a T20 match). All bowlers needed to be
tighter, both teams. - Rob Morgan
