Weekly League roundup by George Watson

Week Six - 4 June 2018 (download report as a PDF here)

A soggy, stormy week!

It was a damp, humid week in the VPCCL, as Points East festival filled the air with rapturous music across the second week of cup matches.

Tuesday saw Old Fallopians 1st XII strike an imposing 159-0 off a reduced 14 overs against last year’s runners-up Sky, with Farhad Waqar (60) and Suhail Shahid (43) top scoring. It wasn’t enough, however, as Sky took the honours with six balls to spare finishing on 162-2, Sarfraz Ahmed (50) and Muhammad Hafeez (32) guiding them to victory.

Mile Tailenders saw off Old Fallopians 2nd XII on pitch 2. OF batted first and were bowled out for 105 in 14.1 overs, Freddie Barrass top scoring with 16. In reply the Tailenders eased to victory in 13.1 overs, John Speakman (34) top scoring.

Riz Siddiqi starred for Stokey Scoundrels on Wednesday, as he finished with the highest score of the season so far (85). After smashing his way to 50, Riz came back in and added 35 extra runs in just two overs with some huge sixes as the Scoundrels smashed 164-4. Sport Interactive finished well short on 109-2 despite a spirited 53 from Tiras Singh.

It was a tight match on pitch 2 as Camels Light left it to the last over to chase down Bansko Bears’ 128-2. Oliver Mekle (42) and Tom Curtis (27) starred for Bansko. However, with Rich Haagen as vocal as ever on the side-lines, opener Brendan Cleaver finished unbeaten on 41 helping the Camels to 129-4.

Jack Boone (41) top scored as Broadway hit 132-4 against Masiha, Iain Berryman being the pick of the bowlers taking 3-28. Despite losing an early wicket, Masiha stormed to their target in 12.1 overs thanks to a brilliant spell of striking from Daniya al Domine (50) and Rahil Shazad (50).

Thursday saw Friends CC ease to victory over Regents. Opting to bat, Friends finished on 171-4, opener Iqbal Miah (50) and Manish Sanga (44) helping Friends to their imposing total, which at one point could have been a lot more if not for a great last over by Mark Partridge. Despite a spirited unbeaten 26 from David Campbell, Regents were skittled for just 47.

Stokey, playing their second game in two days, batted first against in-form Millwall. Riz Siddiqi left off from the previous day striking a second fifty as Stokey finished on 115-4. However it wasn’t enough as fierce batting from Saif Khan (39) and Farhan Ahmed (34) helped Millwall to victory with six overs remaining.

Pitch 1 saw The Rose & Crown defeat Victoria Lounge by 5 wickets. VL finished their innings on 127, Stephe (49) top scoring. However, Rose & Crown never looked in trouble as Patrick Heaphy (36) and Charlie Challinor (29) helped the league champions progress into the quarter finals.
