Sporting Alfas Cricket Club Sporting Alfas mid week v Merchant Taylors School on Wed 26 Mar 2008 at 12.30
Sporting Alfas Cricket Club Won by nine wickets

Match report Wednesday, March 26th

MTS CC U15s 133-10 (37.4 overs)
SACC MW 134-1 (26.2 overs)

Winning the toss and electing to bat, the tourists struggled initially against the accuracy of 1st XI skipper Laundon, who accounted for Hatcher, caught behind for 0. McInnes also pouched fellow opener Patel for 2 off Hersh before Marriner accounted for Maini for 7 to leave the visitors' top order in some disarray. Soujani (39) calmly set about restoring the damage in partnership first with Sodha (25) then Allen (33) before falling victim to the dangerous Simon Hersh, who added three more wickets to his season's tally to end with 3 for 12 off 4. Other successful bowlers included Mudasser, Hall and Bellis though young Harry Marshall was unlucky to have two catches dropped at midwicket off consecutive balls.

Laundon wasted no time in setting about the visitors' bowling, retiring in the 17th over having hit a six to reach his fifty with the score on 75. McInnes smashed eight fours to end on 41 not out with Jack Hersh (33) carrying his bat to see the midweek boys through to a second win on the bounce after two early season disappointments. Though none of the eight bowlers used by the visitors ended with a wicket, all bowled well with Soujani the most economical, conceding just 14 runs off his 5.2 overs (economy rate 2.63).
