Caledonian Conquerors v Dynamite Ducks

Monday 18 July 2011, Victoria Park
Caledonian Conquerors won by 15 runs

Caledonian Conquerors won the toss and chose to bat first

Caledonian Conquerors: 186 for 1 in 16 overs
M. Fazal 51 not out
M. Nadeem. 50 not out
K Malik. 50 not out

Dynamite Ducks: 171 for 3 in 16 overs
Hasnain Hussain. 52 not out
Nadeem 4 0 42 1 Fazal. 4 0 34 1 Khurrum 1 0 7 0 Janzeb. 4 0 38 1

On a wet and windy Monday evening records tumbled as the rain came down. Cally's broke all previous records against Dynamite Ducks by scoring their highest total of the season by reaching 186 inside their allotted 16 overs.

Unlike any other games before Cally's top order all fired with Nadeem, Malik and Fazal all retiring unbeaten with 50's under their belts.

With 186 for the loss of 1 wicket, Cally's had put in a near perfect batting display against the normally potent Ducks attack. Having already conceded a 180-plus lead earlier in the season (against Safe Skills) in the 1st round of the cup, Callys decided to start cautiously and protect their boundaries.

With all men on the boundary ropes it was only a matter of time before some catches stuck, Ducks made a gallant effort in chasing down a huge total and reached 171 for the loss of 3 batsmen.

Hasnain took the attack to Callys but unfortunately he had to retire after scoring his 50. 22 was needed off the last over but it was too much to ask of even the Dynamite Ducks.

Cally's had blown the title race wide open with 3 games to go. With Sky ELcc Ducks and Cally's all in the hunt all permatations are still possible. Cally's are still hoping for that elusive 1st title - could 2011 be our year ?
