 Battery Mania

Fourth XI holds nerve to win last ball thriller!!!

With the new rules in the 3rd division set to provide some obstacles this year, the new scaled down number of over’s, 35, and the introduction of a time limit seemed to work in our favour. This week at least

The season kicked off with a match against Bonteheuwel CC away from home. Captain A. Titus won the toss and elected to bat first.

Himself and C. Sonday, two stalwarts of this team, opened the batting and had to see out a fierce few over’s from the Bonteheuwel opening pair. They came through unscathed and the ball unshined. The skipper would have been disappointed getting out the way he did for 13 runs after doing all the hard work, but Sonday would not make the same mistake. He went on to score a well deserved half century, 53, and along with A. Regal, 27, were the pillars on which the team total of 136 was built.

Our fielding innings saw the return of R. Bisnath and Y. Jaffar. Welcome back gentleman. The wickets column was not kept busy by the openers, but Sonday showed his worth yet again, this time with the ball. Taking 2 for 20 in his allotted 7 overs. Vice Captian F. Said and I. Brink ensured that the game was kept within reach and then it all came down to the final over...

F. Said was tossed the ball and boy did he deliver! Bonteheuwel needed 2 runs from the final ball, but were not even able to get the tie as Said decided that the batsman’s off stump needed disturbing, thus leaving us with a 1 run, final ball victory!!!

Great start to the season... only to get better with the addition of regular players next week.
