Tawheed v Challengers

Wednesday 8 May 2013, Victoria Park
Tawheed won by 130 runs

Tawheed won the toss and chose to bat first

Tawheed: 196 for 2 in 16 overs
Fazal Mohammed 52 Not out
Nadeem Mohammed 50 Not out
Yasir Khan 30
Yawar 4 0 48 1

Challengers: 66 for 7 in 9 overs
Abbas 25 Not out
Yasir Khan 2 0 7 3 Ali Mohammed 4 0 22 3 Saj Rehman 3 0 12 0

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.
