A nice win for the Bengal Tigers -- and in an enjoyably chaotic fashion.
After winning the toss, the Tigers chose to bat and despite starting with
only 5 players were sure that there would be no repeat of last week's
collapse of 30 all out.
However, after only 3 balls, the Tigers were 2 wickets down for zero runs on
the board and were in trouble.
But there would be no repeat, and Cook and Pollitt streadied the ship and
got the score to a defendable total.
Chinatown started well with both openers scoring at will. The Tigers were
struggling with only 7 players and injuries to the throwing arms of the
entire off-side field (RB - learn to throw left handed perhaps?).
However, the bowling eventually came good and wickets started to fall. In an
exciting end to the game, Chinatown required about 20 odd off the last 4
overs with wickets in hand.
Top bowling at the death by Guarav and Nic brought about an unexpected
victory - and Chinatown wondering how they managed to lose the game.
Special mention to our returning wicketkeeper, Cook, who took 3 catches, a
run-out, and gave away no byes.
