Cavs Fail at the Garrison

The Sunday XI travelled to the Garrison ground today to face The Real Oddies.

With skipper C Finch winning the toss, the Cavaliers fielded first and made two early breakthroughs through R Rasheed (9-0-38-2) as the Oddies were reduced to 20/2. A third wicket partnership of 41 helped them recover, but V Gedi (9-0-40-1) claimed the next wicket to fall. A further 41 runs were added to the total before H Ahamed claimed his maiden Cavaliers wicket, and once the Oddies reached 124/4 the Cavs spinners, H Ahamed (9-0-25-3) and C Finch (5-0-23-1) made three quick breakthroughs, making the score 126/7. The Cavaliers then claimed one more wicket as opening bowler S Riaz (8-1-34-1) returned. The Oddies ended their innings on 162/8 from their 40 overs.

The Cavaliers openers added 14 runs at the beginning of their reply before A Rasheed (9) was the first batsman out. The Cavs reached 24/1 but three quick wickets, those of R Akhlaq (13), S Gupta (0) and I Ikram (5), saw the score slip to 29/4. Wickets then fell at regular intervals (the next four partnerships all added 13 or 14 each) as R Rasheed (7), H Ahamed (13), D Young (5) and V Gedi (20) were all dismissed. With C Finch (0) the last man to go, the Cavaliers were all out for 84 after 31.5 overs, with S Riaz not out on 5, losing by 78 runs.
