Sporting Alfas Cricket Club Sporting Alfas Academy v Merchant Taylors School on Fri 28 Mar 2008 at 12.30
Sporting Alfas Cricket Club Lost by nine wickets

Match report Thursday, March 27th

SACC Academy 126 all out (35.2 overs)
MTS CC U15s 127-1 (26.3 overs)

The visitors once again won the toss and elected to field. Hersh and guest opener Hatcher got off to a slow but steady start, accumulating 76 before Hatcher was run out for 21 almost immediately after the 20-overs drinks break. Muñoz and Hersh set about improving the run rate, quickly adding 24 before the skipper perished in the 25th over - leg before to Hegarty, who went on to also remove Johnson a couple of balls later. Jack Hersh was next to go - for a well-made 55 - to become Hegarty's third victim. The rest of the home side's batsmen came and went without troubling the scorers unduly though Jamie Roper showed more resistance than most to end on 6 not out. The bulk of the damage was done by Hegarty (4 for 18 off 5) though Lewis also chipped in with late wickets to end with 3 for 21 off his 6.2 overs.

After Tuesday's game, the 126 run target never really looked to be too challenging, and although the home side bowled and fielded well, Sodha (50 not out) and Gilsingham (31 not out) batted with great responsibility to see the tourists home with more than thirteen overs to spare for a very well-deserved nine wicket victory. The only successful Alfas bowler was Hersh, who had Shah caught in the gulley by Hatcher for 11.
