Cavs vs Kelvedon, Part 2

The Sunday XI travelled to Kelvedon today to play their re-arranged game from the World Cup final date.

After losing the toss, the Cavaliers were asked to bat first (handy, as we only had 8 players at the start). The opening pair of R Akhlaq and B Munir added 17 runs together before Akhlaq (9) was the first wicket to fall. The Cavs then recovered to 43/1 before two quick wickets, those of U Akhter (14) and Munir (20), saw the score slip to 43/3. A fourth wicket partnership of 29 (the highest of the innings) saw the score reach 72/3, but a pair of quick wickets saw both set batsmen be dismissed as M Nadeem (18) was run out and T Hijazi (10) was caught behind - The Cavaliers 73/5 in the 14th over. Next to go was K Chowdhury (4), who was soon followed by F Murtaza (7), but the Cavaliers soon passed 100, reaching 105/7 before S Riaz (5), N Davidson (0) and D Young (0) were all caught out - A Khaliq (8*) the undefeated batsman as the Cavaliers were 106 all out after 25.3 overs.

The second innings saw B Munir (3-0-26-0) struggle to find a consistent line while N Davidson couldn't make a breakthrough at the other end. The first wicket to fall was courtesy of A Khaliq (7-2-17-1), which allowed Davidson (9-1-32-2) to take a couple of cheap wickets at the other end. Despite some tight bowling by S Riaz (4-1-10-0) and M Nadeem (3.4-0-11-0), the Cavaliers were unable to prevent Kelvedon reaching 107/3 in 26.4 overs, winning by 7 wickets.
