Sky v Crossrail

Thursday 25 April 2013, Victoria Park
Sky won by 69 runs

Sky won the toss and chose to bat first

Sky: 148 for 6 in 16 overs
Rizwan Siddiqui 61 not out
Haris Ali Soomro 36
Richard 3-0-3-29

Crossrail: 79 for 7 in 15.3 overs
A Bywater 42
Arish 3.3-0-16-2 R Siddiqui 4-0-21-2 Imran 4-0-20-1 Waqar Ali 4-0-21-1

The warmest day of 2013 thus far saw the first league match of the VPCCL season between the veterans of Sky and newcomers Crossrail.

Having won the toss, Aleem of Sky decided to have a bat and with Haris Ali put on a steady opening partnership of 35 off 5 overs.

Once the partnership was broken the run rate increased with Rizwan and Haris at the crease and despite a late flurry of wickets, a par (for Pitch 3)score of 148-6 off 16 was achieved.

Crossrail started well, with A Bywater in particular batting confidently, however Sky kept things tight and with an ever climbing run rate just proved a little too strong for the league debutants eventually securing a 69 run victory in the 16th over.

As the Crossrail bbq smoke gently wafted across the field, both teams congratulated each other after a good match played in excellent spirit.
