Sunday Side Stays Unbeaten

The Sunday XI welcomed The Real Oddies to Mill Road today.

Fielding first, F Munir (4-2-12-2) took the first two wickets to fall as N Davidson (3-0-29-0) and P Kannan (2-0-27-0) went wicketless. The score reached 89/2 before the introduction of stand-in captain M Nadeem who removed the dangerous C McCoy (60) before claiming a second quick wicket to make the Oddies slump to 89/4. Nadeem claimed the next two wickets to fall as the Oddies reached 100/6. Nadeem (6-2-17-5) finishing with his first five-wicket haul for the Cavaliers while A Khaliq (6-1-16-1) also claimed a wicket, thanks to a second catch behind the stumps by D Smith. With a U Akhter effecting a run out on debut, it was left to S Khan (1.3-0-1-1)  to finish off the innings as The Real Oddies were all out for 110 after 22.3 overs.

The Cavaliers reply started well, with D Smith and S Khan adding 45 for the first wicket before Smith (18) was dismissed. The first wicket prompted a Cavs collapse as U Akhter (0) and P Kannan (0) fell in quick succession. Khan (33) and M Nadeem (19) then saw the score up to 80/3 before both were out with the score on 87/5. With F Munir (11) out with victory within sight, it was left to O ur Rehman (14*) and B Aslam (5*) to see the Cavaliers up to their target; the team ending on 113/6 after 22.4 overs to win by four wickets.
