On a dull and wet day both teams arrived in great determinations to play
a fine game of cricket. After a delayed start due to rain the captains
agreed to play a reduced 10 overs game.
Regents won the toss and decided to give East 8 batting first. East 8
started a little slow when they lost early wickets of Suf being caught on
the boundary line and Mo being run out without facing a ball.
Kash and Babs played a fantastic innings and picking up the pace of the run
rate. Babs lost his wicket at 21 and Kash remained unbeaten yet again at 36.
Well done Kash.
Regents who played in great spirits kicked off their innings with a flying
start but with wickets falling at regular intervals. At one stage Regents
were on 67 off 6 overs with the victory well within their reach.
East 8 kept their composure and quckly changed bowlers and contained the
batsmans with fine variations. East 8 turned the game around with some fine
bowling and feilding leading to a glorious victory on a gloomy day.
Although it rained throughout the game both teams played in the spirit of
the game. Great stuff. Good luck to both teams in the rest of the league.
