Sky v Rose & Crown  

Wednesday 10 August 2011, Victoria Park
Sky won by 54 runs

Sky won the toss and chose to bat first

Sky: 151 for 7 in 15.5 overs
Rizwan Siddiqui 50
Shakeel Durrani 50
Bob 3.5-0-35-4 (including hat trick)

Rose & Crown: 97 for 7 in 14.5 overs
Shaun 38
Sam 27 n.o.
M Rehan Warsi 4-0-22-2 Kaifi Khan 3-0-10-3

Sky won the toss , elected to bat and lost Aleem Hussain early but a 100 run second wicket partnership between Rizwan (50)and Shakeel (50) laid the foundations for a 175+ score , however once both retired , Rose & Crown in general and wicketkeeper/bowler Bob suddenly found their range, kept the run rate down and began to pick up wickets.

In the final over London Field's Bob bowled Sky's No 8 Shahid which only meant the return of the retired Rizwan and Shakeel, no problem for Bob , who removed both in successive balls and duly completed a memorable hat-trick and restricted Sky to 151.

Rose & Crown's chase began slowly against tight opening spells from Rizwan and Rehan and once Rehan made the breakthrough the rest of the line up could not maintain a competitive run rate despite good knocks by Shaun (38) and Sam (27n.o.)as Rehan and Kaifi (3-0-10-3)ensured the innings subsided in the 15th over for 97.

So, we wait, have Sky won their 6th title, have London Fields completed a maiden championship triumph..are CC and Ducks still in it...as Sir Alex is often quoted as saying...'squeaky bum time' !!
