A 6th league win out of 6 for the Tigers.
After winning the toss the Bengal Tigers chose to bat. A great start to the
bowling saw Mad Marrocas concede only 10 runs off 3 overs. Top bowling in
particular from Sam.
However, the Marrocas bowling then cracked. Whether it was the left hand /
right hand batting combo we'll never know but the Tigers then scored 71 runs
off the next 5 overs to bring up 81 at the half way point.
It was a solid but unspectacular batting display that took the Tigers up to
149 runs, but it was an incredible 48 extras including 42 wides (24 extra
deliveries) that was the star.
A tight opening bowling spell from the 2 Mikes saw only 32 runs conceded off
the first 5 overs. However, the Marrocas were up for the challenge and good
batting from Mungo and Hugo saw the Marrocas needing 40 off the last 2
overs. A six off the first ball gave Marrocas some hope, but ultimately they
were to come up short. It was the extras that did for them.
Special mention to Hugo for the one handed boundary catch, the Tigers
umpires for their honestly in twice calling 1-short, Nic for umpiring,
Warren for braving his injury and coming to the pub, and Abhijit's white
trousers for staying so white (get your knees dirty man).
