Tendring Easily Beat Cavs

The Saturday XI hosted Tendring today, and the Cavs batted first after Dellar lost the toss for the first time this year.

The Cavaliers openers started well, surviving a scare in the fifth over as F Murtaza was dropped on 10 at point, with the score on 17/0. The openers maintained a run rate of around 5-per-over for the first 15 overs of the contest until Murtaza (39) was given out LBW to make the score 73/1. That first wicket prompted a couple of quick wickets as D Dellar (20) and G Duminy (1) were both out; the score reaching 76/3 after 19.1 overs. The Cavaliers then reached 89/3 before losing S Khan (10) and N Hussain (1) to make it 94/5. The score passed 100 before B Aslam (6) was caught, but quick wickets again saw the Cavaliers slip up, going from 112/6 to 112/8 as P Kannan (10) and N Davidson (9) were both dismissed. S Riaz and D Young then added 31 runs for the ninth wicket (the second-highest partnership of the innings) before Young (3) was caught with the score on 143 with eight balls remaining. It was then left to Riaz (25*) and A Khaliq (4) to see the Cavaliers up to their final score of 154 all out from 45 overs.

The econd innings saw the Cavaliers make an early breakthrough by N Davidson (6-0-33-1), with S Riaz (6-1-11-0) bowling well at the other end. The Tendring second wicket pairing then saw off spells from A Khaliq (4-0-20-0), N Hussain (7-0-28-0) and S Khan (3-0-20-0) as they amassed a partnership of 115 before B Aslam (3.2-0-25-1) bowled the other Tendring opener, J Jenno (88). With G Duminy (2-0-11-0) and P Kannan (1-0-6-0) also going wicketless, the match was over after 32.2 overs in the second inning as Tendring scored 158/2, winning by 8 wickets.
