No Way Past Noman for Sudbury

The Saturday XI hosted Sudbury at Mill Road yesterday and batted first.

The Cavaliers started by adding 35 runs for the first wicket, but the dismissal of D Dellar (18) was oon followed by thoe of F Murtaza (23) and M Vinter (1) as the score slipped to 45/3. The Cavs recovered though a fourth wicket partnership of 24 but two quick wickets, those of P Kannan (4) and K Chowdhury (16) meant the Cavaliers were 69/5 in the 20th over. D Smith and I Ikram then combined to add 50 runs together before Ikram (28) was caught, but a further 30 runs were then added for the seventh wicket before Smith (36) was the next man out, the score on 149/7 after 33 overs. N Hussain and S Riaz managed to add a further 30 runs in 6 overs to get the Cavaliers up to 179, but the wicket of Riaz (4) brought N Davidson to the crease, and he and Hussain got the cavaliers up to their final total of 222/8 after 45 overs, with Hussain (51*) bringing up his fifty while Davidson was unbeaten on 19*.

The Cavaliers opened with N Davidson and JJ Elliston, with Davidson claiming two wickets in his opening spell of 7-1-22-2.

With N Hussain (15-4-35-5) claiming a 5-fer in his final over, he and Elliston were replaced by D Smith and K Chowdhury (2-0-15-0), with Smith (2.2-1-3-2) claiming the final two wickets as the Cavaliers bowled Sudbury out for 140 in 41.2 overs to win by 82 runs.
