Safe Skills Conquer Caledonians! Last year's league Runners-up Safe Skills were always going to provide the 1st stern test of the 2011 campaign for the Cally's.

A gripping exciting game was enjoyed by both sides, who played a highly charged game & high scoring game on the generous boundaries of Pitch 1. Cally's started brightly and the Mohammed brothers carried on thier good form with Nad unbeaten on 50 and Faz chipping in with 42. 183 at the half way mark looked like a healthy defendable total.

Safe Skills demonstrated why they finished second in last years campaign as they showed thier intent by smashing 18 off the first over. Game ON !! With 57 on the board inside 4 overs, Cally's seemed to have run out steam & ideas, as Safe Skills smashed all the Cally's bowlers out of the park!

Cally's normally reliable fielders were feeling generous by dropping Safe Skills top scorer Assalam no less than 3 times ! Cally's were as poor and as abject in the field as they could be. Misfields,dropped catches, disorganised chaos was the only way to describe Cally's in the field. Safe skills rallied and sniffed a cup run in the making.

Although they only Won by 1 wicket, Sake skills were the better side on the day and deserved the victory. With 1 required for victory off the last over Cally's tried to snatch a tie but a maiden wicket was a big ask for Omar, even if there was a tailender at the other end, as Safe Skills Ummer hit the penultimate delivery for 4 to see the Safe Skills boys home. A great game of cricket .

Good Luck to Safe skills for the rest of the cup campaign and Fielding Practice for Cally's !!
