The first Big Clash of the top 4 in the Premier league was Won by Sky,
who were very much up for this game after thier recent shock defeat to
Victoria Pk Juniors.
Cally's late arrival cost them the toss and were made to toil in the field
as a result. Aleem and Shakeel set about the Cally's opening bowlers with
relative ease. With crusing at an average of 10 an over, 162 was reached by
the Sky outfit with only 2 wickets to fall.
Cally's chase began in earnest and Cally's openers seemed to have it all
under control- whilst keeping up with the required 10 an over till the 8th
over. When the wickets started to fall the run rate dropped, and 10 an over
always seemed like a big ask for the Cally's lower order batsmen !
A magical spell of fast and accurate bowling in the second half by Hassan
saw Sky home to victory by a comfortable margin.
