Fire in Babylon Contenders chose to bat and Ambrose and Jamie Cox started
well, the towering Ambrose with two enormous straight driven 6's before
being caught in the deep with the score on 31 for 30.
Next over Irfan Mohammed struck twice. His pace was causing all sorts of
problems. Derek was bowled beaten by the pace for 0. Then Jamie went for 6
caught behind on a lifter at fly slip, the score now 37 for 3.
Weekes and Charlie Cox (who had been dropped on ) pushed on before Winston
Williams got him caught behind. Charlie continued picking up runs including
a straight driven 6 off Irfan, but wickets kept falling.
The best being a sensational run out by Williams. All out 91 in 13 overs.
The towering Ambrose started the innings but Andre Samuel was in no mood to
wait around. He hit two huge 6's in the first over as things got lively! 18
off the first over.
Sardar was at the other end but Samuel continued to take the battle to the
Contenders. Both batsmen were peppered with shorter balls (neither minded).
9 went off Derek's first over and 16 including another two 6's from Samuel
in Ambrose's second over.
The chat was starting. After 4 overs Stoke Newington were 56 and strangely
Contenders were telling Samuel that he couldn't bat? Sardar went for 12 with
the score on 73 skying one off his chin. Andre Samuel then retired on 50 not
out and Stokey cruised over the line.
