With a strong batting line ELCCC posted a big total of 179 on the pitch 3.
Boom boom altaf again opened the innings with the first ball boundary and
continued his great form. He scored 36 before getting out on the balling of
experienced John who proved too good for him.
Yasir came in and got run out on the first ball he faced. Syed kept his

Mohit (19) Marcus (3n/o) and Iqbal(5n/o) gave good support to syed.
With a total of 179 to defend on pitch 3 ELCCC's bowlers and fielders knew
to they had to stop the boundries and they did not allow many free
boundries. Opening bowler waheed bowled a super line and got the openers
wicket in his second over.
Marcus was a bit unfortunate with his line and length today but Altaf as a
first change took 4 wickets in 4 overs by giving away only 16 runs. Sean
(33) and Alan (18) were the only ones to show some resistance and Rose and
Crown fell 76 runs short of the total.
A good game enjoyed by both teams. Rose and Crown as always were like
gentlemen and played the game in true cricketing spirit. Good Luck to both
teams for coming games. - Mohit Gupta
East London Community made
the most of a slightly under par fielding performance from the Rose & Crown.
Although the run rate was good in the early overs, wickets fell too
frequently for the Rose & Crown to mount any realistic chase. East London
Community were deserved winners on the day. Good luck for the Final. - Paul
