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
