Caledonian Conquerors v Sky

Tuesday 27 July 2010, Victoria Park
Caledonian Conquerors won by 9 runs

Caledonian Conquerors won the toss and chose to bat first

Caledonian Conquerors: 164 for 4 in 15 overs
Fazal Mohammed 52 Not Out
Shahid Ali 20
Nadeem Mohammed 30
Mujahid Khan 19
Javed 4-0-29-2

Sky: 155 for 4 in 15 overs
Shakeel Durrani 51 Not Out
Imran Khan 51 Not Out
Saj Rehman 4-0-28-3

Cally's overcame Sky in the run in to the finale to a long and competitive season. Both teams had mutual respect for each other and the match was played in a friendly and competitive manner.

The Mohammed Brothers gave Cally's a dream start with Fazal retiring on 52 and Nadeem continuing his impressive form with a quickfire 30. A below par fielding performance from Sky saw 3 catches dropped and some sloppy overthrows allowed Cally's off the Hook on several occasions.

Only Javed made some crucial breakthrough's restricting Cally's to a competitive 164 in 15 overs. With several Cally's players not in suitable attire (full whites at all times please gents!) Cally's skipper was left with no choice but to open the attack with spin, a bold move which paid instant dividends as the skipper himself Saj Rehman removed 2 wickets in the second over.

Only Shakeel and Imran took the fight to Cally's, with both of them retiring with fiftys but this meant Callys had two new batsmen at the crease for the climax to the chase, this was the change in momentum Callys required as Nadeem and Debutant Omar Ali saw Callys' over the line.
