SACC 2nd XI v SACC Academy

A bright but breezy day saw the SACC 2nd XI begin their season against
a talented SACC Academy side by choosing to bat first.

The youngsters were in no mood to be taken lightly and soon had their
more illustrious opponents in some considerable trouble.

After miserly opening spells by Muñoz and Sunderland had the seconds
reduced to 25-2 after 10 overs, it was the Academy's change bowlers of
Hersh (1-14), Jamie (3-18), Marshall (0-7) and Metcalfe (4-6) that
tore through the experienced 2nd XI line-up to leave them reeling at
72 all out - a quite brilliant effort by the juniors.

In reply, Hersh and Muñoz were able to steer the Academy confidently
to within touching distance of victory before Hersh fell for a
composed 15, leaving talented 'junior' Wasim Ur-Rehman to hit the
winning runs to see the Academy home in what had to rate as the
fledglings' most complete display in their short history.

Special mention must go to C.Muñoz for his excellent 42 not out - a
quite superb effort.

The defeat was so comprehensive, it even gave the teams time for a
quick, ten 8-ball over match which enabled the 2nd XI to save a
smidgen of face with a four-wicket win, but nothing could be taken
away from the Academy side, who rightly took all the plaudits on the
