East 8 v Mad Morrocas

Monday 25 July 2011, Victoria Park

East 8 won by 6 wickets

East 8 lost the toss and were put into field

Mad Morrocas: 117 for 7 in 14.4 overs
DOMINIC 28
SUFYAN 4ov-4 for 11 runs

East 8: 120 for 1 in 15 overs
KASH 50 (RETIRED)
FAISAL MOLVI 35
MUNGO, 3 OVERS 0-12



Finally, some decent weather!! Mad maroccas won the toss and decided to bat and got off to a flying start. East 8 didn't seem to have an answer to the regular boundaries ball after ball.

Finally, the first breakthrough came with Sufyan's first ball and Mad marocca's were on a slippery slope losing regular wickets. That said-they still managed to keep a decent run rate going and ended up all out for 117. In went the east-8 openers Kash and Faisal, they took to the bowling attack and scored easily for the first 5 overs.

Mad maroccas then changed the bowling attack and slowed the run rate. The east-8 openers kept their heads and kept the scoreboard ticking over with Kash crashing/smashing his way to his first 50 and Faisal not far behind(35) until he was unfortunatley run out.

In went Zamir and between him and KASH EAST 8 edged closer and closer to the required 118 runs. Kash retired on 50 and before too long Zam hit the killer blow, four runs down to third man.

Well done to both teams for a good spirited game played on a pitch which has so much bounce and is damn hard to play on.

Special mention for KASH who has hit the first ever 50 by an east-8 batsman also a special shout for Sufyan who bowled very well indeed to take home 4 wickets in four wicked overs!! One more game for east-8, results have gone for us this week so lets see where we end up!!! Thank you mad marrocas-and good luck!!
