Openers batsmen Montgomery & Cotton put on a useful start in this 40 over game.

P L: 124-10. Cotton 29. A Palmer 7.5-0-18-3
P : 128-5. J Baglivi 48* L Faisal 36 Sudhir 9-0-41-3

Each scored 29 as Captain Nigel Wilkinson cleverly manoeuvred his bowlers so the batters were never comfortable enough to accelerate.The extra pace of Lucius Faisal as the 6th bowler made an impression as 102-3 fell away for only another 22 runs.Adrian Palmer also stood out in his bowling.

The reply faltered at 16-2 but opener John Baglivi anchored the innings unbeaten only 2 short of a half-century. Lucius smashed 36 off 26 balls including 2 huge 6s. Only a stunning catch by Beale in the covers undid him. Sudhir was the pick of the bowlers but its was still a canter & Lucius deserved his man of the match.
