Cavs Beat Bergholt's Banks

The Sunday XI played their first home game of the season yesterday, hosting West Bergholt.

Upon winning the toss, captain N Jalib invited Bergholt to bat first. After an early wicket (the score was 1/1), R Rasheed (9-4-21-3) then made two further breakthroughs to reduce the opposition to 45/3 while his fellow opening bowler B Prabhu (6-0-23-0) went wicketless. First change bowler F Munir (6-1-22-2) then took the next wickets to fall as Bergholt went from 60/3 to 60/5. P Kannan then took two wickets to make the score 73/6 before C Finch (1-0-30-0) was unlucky to have to bowl to Bergholt's J Banks. With F Murtaza claiming the wicket of Banks (98), it was left to Kannan (6-2-12-3) and F Murtaza (3.2-0-12-2) to take the last two wickets as West Bergholt were all out for 128 in 31.2 overs.

The Cavaliers reply then started very well as F Murtaza and N Jalib added 86 for the first wicket before Murtaza was caught behind for 54. Jalib (41*) and H Ahamed (20*) then saw the Cavaliers to a winning total adding 43 for the second wicket; the Cavaliers ending on 129/1 after just 15 overs for a nine wicket win!
