Sporting Alfas Cricket Club Lost

Match report Friday, 14th March

SACC MW 171 all out (40 overs)
Nomads CC 174-3 (27 overs)

On a warm, sunny day only slightly blighted by the occasional patch of chilly sea mist, Jeff Bellis won the toss for the home side and elected to bat. Hall and Kellington put on 45 for the first wicket until Hall perished for 11 in the 14th over. Kellington and Taylor then put together a partnership of 49 before Taylor went for 11 in the 25th. Kellington himself went next for a well-crafted 69 with the score on 104 for four after 29 overs. Out strode guest batsman Akmal, who smashed his way to a fine 43 to take the total to somewhere approaching respectability before himself falling in the last over to the unorthodox Imran (3 for 23 off six overs). Three other Nomads off-spinners got among the wickets with excellent spells from Mudasser (3 for 34 off 8), Bloomberg (2 for 26 off 8) and Barter (2 for 44 off 7).

Despite a tidy opening spell from Peter Pakiam - with only ten runs accruing from his six overs - the Nomads' opening pair were quick to punish anything loose and soon raced to three figures. When Barter eventually fell - to an excellent diving catch by Howden in the deep off Bellis for 66 - the score stood at 121 - and there were still 19 overs remaining. With Howe chipping in with a lively 35 before falling to Kellington's first ball, and with Latchmen carrying his bat for a fine 59, the visitors reached their modest target with 13 overs to spare, leaving the Alfas bowlers with plenty of food for thought. Congratulations to the Nomads on a deserved seven-wicket triumph, and we look forward to welcoming them back again in the autumn.
