Another Sunday Win

The Sunday XI played Great Horkesley & Lexden at home yesterday and fielded first.

The Cavaliers got off to a good start with F Munir (9-2-40-1) claiming an early wicket, although fellow opening bowler R Rasheed (9-0-44-0) went wicketless. With V Gedi (9-0-27-0) also unable to make a breakthrough, captain N Jalib turned to F Murtaza (5-0-28-1) who claimed the next wicket to fall, making the score 59/2. The next wicket was claimed by C Finch (2-0-18-1) to make the score 126/3, although A Ali (4-0-27-0) and R Ahklaq (2-0-13-0) were not able to add another wicket as GH&L ended their 40 overs on 203/4, with the fourth wicket coming late in the innings via a run out by V Gedi.

The Cavaliers reply saw wicketkeeper I Ikram (0) fall early, but a second wicket partnership of 40 saw the score reach 56/1 before R Akhlaq (22) was the next to go. With T Janganan (8) being dismissed soon afterwards it was left to a fourth wicket partnership of 110 between opener F Murtaza and F Munir to put the Cavaliers within touching distance of a win at 175/3 before Murtaza (73) was out LBW. An unbeaten fifth wicket partnership between Munir (95*) and N Jalib (2*) then saw the Cavs home, reaching 208/4 in just 23.5 overs for a six wicket win.
