Challengers were anything but a challenge for an upbeat Tawheed side in
this one sided affair.
Challengers forfieted the toss with a 6.35pm start and opted to play a full
16 over game - much to their regret.
Tawheed decided to bat on the vast and slow outfield of pitch 3. With some
loose and wayward Bowling from the Challengers opening bowlers Sunny and
Shoaib, Tawheed's Ash and Nadeem built up a solid foundation for the big
hitters of the Tawheed middle order.
Tawheed accumulated runs at the rate of 11 an over in the early innings.
Once Yasser and Fazal came to the crease, Challengers were left devoid of
any ideas to stop the onslaught, as Tawheed broke all records with the
highest score ever posted by them on Pitch 3.
Challengers started slowly but with Yasser and Ali on fire, Challengers
could not find the boundary and the run rate climbed and wickets fell at
regular intervals. Tawheed won this game with 7 overs to spare.
Only skipper Abbass put up any resistance but alas was left as the last man
standing as Challengers folded in the 9th over.
One more win for Tawheed is required to guarantee 1st division cricket this
season. We are awaiting a much sterner test from Nightwatchman (a local east
London derby always eagerly anticipated by both sides) in a fortnight.
