Island Community lost the toss and were put into field


Junoon: 114 for 7 in 15.2 overs
Dani 26
Dheraj Shamoo 4-0-22-2 Jack Stollery 3.2-0-26-2

Island Community: 116 for 2 in 11.1 overs
Joe Tousent 47
Motiur Rahman 44 NO
Smokey 1.1-0-8-1


After being put into field, the Island bowlers bowled beautifully to keep the Junoon scoring rate low. Led by Jack 'Stollerz', even the old pretender Dheraj Shamoo-pooch got in on the act with a fine spell, though the legality of his trainers must surely be looked into by the ICC...it's just not in the spirit of cricket Dil! And how Tanjeem got a maiden is a mystery to everyone, including himself.

Set a 115 to win, Island sent in a new, youthful looking opening pair. Joe is turning into a handsome little player and his cricket's not bad either. He smashed the ball around the ground with both aggression and class - leading to all Island's players on the touchline claiming some stake in Joe's development.

Personally I think Motiur's (my) decision to let him open was inspired. End of. Young Connor played watchfully, showing that Island's future is bright. Motiur chipped in with a useful 44 not out, playing a beautifully placed inside edge to win the match. Well done to both teams.
