Sporting Alfas Cricket Club Won Run feast between SACC & MCC

Match report An absolute run feast took place at the Woodbridge Oval today in the league contest between Sporting Alfas and Madrid CC.

Alfas captain Christian Munoz won the toss and elected to bat. He then sat back, relaxed and watched as the opening partnership of Phil Pennick and Gary Crompton put on 156 for the first wicket.

Pennick was the first to go with 50 to his name, and then as often is the way, Crompton soon followed after just completing a fine century. His innings included sixteen fours and three sixes and was made in quick time to give Alfas a great platform for a huge score.

Another excellent partnership of 147 followed as Adam Algar and Christian Munoz piled on the pressure as the Madrid bowling attack toiled in the hot sun. Algar went on 41 but Munoz went on to complete the second century of his sides innings, finishing on 111. His first fifty just took 22 balls and 400 looked a distinct possibility when the Alfas captain departed.

Some tight bowling from Madrid that produced wickets in the last handful of overs restricting the innings to a "mere" 389 for 8.

After tea, Madrid started forcefully and at the first drinks break at 15 overs had the identical score of 99 as Alfas did at the same stage in their innings. This was due to some belligerent batting from Adam Langhans and Varun Jain. Langhams finally was dismissed on 68 but Jain stayed for the majority of the innings to become the third centurion of this amazing match. With support from Tetlow (28) and Wilson who hit 22 off nine balls the visitors continued to have an outside chance of a major upset.

Another whirlwind innings by the Madrid skipper Ted Miller, who blitzed 25 off eight balls gave the visitors full batting points but their valiant effort finally ended on 321, sixty eight runs shy of the Alfas total. A special mention should also go to Pul Taylor, the evergreen left arm spinner, who bowled nine very tight overs for just 27 runs, whilst all the other bowlers around him from both sides went for double or treble his economy rate.
