The league kicked off for Junoon CC with a qualifying fixture against seasoned opponents Wrong Uns.

A nice friendly relaxed atmosphere was evident as both teams knew each other from previous meetings, friendly and competitive. JCC won the toss and elected to bat first.

A slow start in batting was created by good line and length bowling. Soon enough, wickets started to fall, like leaves off a tree in the season of Autumn....

3 wickets in a short spell gave WU the confidence to bowl JCC out for a low score, but JCC batsman Waleed had othe ideas. He made his steady 50*, retired, and Nomaan Shah came in at no.5 to cause some more damage, which he did.

A quick 35 from Nomaan and JCC finally finished on 107, a below par total but definitely a game on.

JCC started their bowling attack with skipper Firoz bowling supreme line and length at one end, and Nomaan bowling with aggression and pace at the other.

Whilst the skipper kept the runs at bay, Nomaan began his destruction of the stumps, by taking 3 wickets in one over. The game changed in favour of JCC all of a sudden, and the skipper made sure he kept his foot on the gas all the way and didn't allow any batsman get away with big shots..

The evening light was reluctant in staying, and eventually the game did end with full overs bowled and JCC winning by 33 runs. Wrong Uns did try to chase the target butt never got going and probably left it a bit too late as the overs dried up.

All in all, a good game and a brilliant start for Junoon CC. Wishing both teams the best of luck for the rest of the season. Gonna be a good one I hope!
