Sporting Alfas Cricket Club Sporting Alfas 1st X1 v Valencia Green CC on Sun 27 Apr 2008 at 13.00
Sporting Alfas Cricket Club Lost by 29 runs

Match report A solid bowling performance by the home side was not enough to see off Valencia Green CC in a match arranged to replace a cancelled league fixture against Javea CC.

The visitors won the toss and opted to bat on a sunny Sunday afternoon, but the decision looked to have backfired when Lupson (6 for 22 from 8 overs) and Ur-Rehman (2 for 19 from 5) tore through the Valencia line up, dismissing them for 125 inside 26 overs. Usman fought a lone hand with a brisk 32, but at the interval no one anticipated anything other than a very comfortable home win.

SACC set off in typically positive fashion, adding 24 for the first wicket before Yaser (6 for 22 from 8 overs) removed Pennick (10) in the third over. Ali (15) then fell in the next over to Asad (2 for 36 from 8), sparking a collapse of monumental proportions, the home side slipping to 66 for 8 in the blink of an eye. Despite skipper Lauden´s undefeated 22, the introduction of Amin (2 for 13 from 4.4 overs) was enough to claim the two wickets required for victory, the visitors running out 29 run winners, bowling just 24.4 overs.

Many thanks are due to the visitors for providing opposition at such short notice, and congratulations to them for winning a game from such a difficult position.
