Sky v Tower Hamlets

Wednesday 23 May 2012, Victoria Park
Sky won by 3 wickets

Sky lost the toss and were put into field

Tower Hamlets: 111 for 7 in 15.1 overs
Khalid 40
Mitu. 25
Rizwan 3-0-18-3 Nozmul 2-0-14-2 Shakil. 2-0-16-1

Sky: 112 for 4 in 13.4 overs
Sarfraz. 47
Aleem. 20
Ufi. 3-0-14-2

With temperatures near the 30c mark and pitch 3 resembling the savannah of the African plains it was hardly going to be a run fest on the largest ground at Victoria Park.

With TH winning the toss and electing to bat , the defending champions Sky looked anything but as they dropped regulation catches at regular intervals and it took the introduction of the evergreen Shakeel Durrani to finally provide the breakthrough.

Sky then turned to their two most experienced campaigners in Rizwan Siddiqui and Nozmul Hussain who proceeded to wreck the TH middle and lower order and claim 5 wickets between them to restrict the score to 111 off 15.1 overs which included two full drinks breaks for the batting team, surely some sort of record!

Sky began their chase in earnest with Aleem looking particularly dangerous , however after an exhilarating hook shot for six he fell soon after his opening partner Nozmul was dismissed.

It was then left to Sarfraz to steer the innings with 47 runs that included some lusty blows to and over the boundary. Sky eventually chased down the runs with wickets and overs to spare and so begin their division 1 campaign in good form.
