Mad Morrocas: 117 for 7 in 14.4 overs
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
