Match report Downed Catches downs SACC

On another hot and Sunday afternoon , SACC won the toss and opted to bat first against the local side from Alicante.Johnson and Robinson opened the innings for SACC , and both looked in fine form cutting and driving their way to a 50 run stand before a loose pull shot from Johnstone sore him walking back to the changing rooms for 23 , MacInnes came to the crease with plenty of chirp from his old club , and left within 6 balls , shortly followed by Robinson for 33 . Mariner was joined by new member Joe , and both players looked in good touch against the Intellectuals CC , both scoring boundaries around the ground before the introduction of Khaliq who took 2 quick wickets to leave SACC at 126-6 with only 10overs to in a reduced match.New Member Joe carried on punishing any bad bowling and reached his Maiden half Century for the club and in his life , well done Joe!He took the SACC total to 186 for 7 and finished on 51 not out respectively.For the Intellectuals CC Khaliq finished on 2-23 and NAveed 2-31 respectively.
Intellectuals chase started well , with Khalid and Standford both hitting any bad bowling to the boundary before the introduction of Mariner (1-45) got the extra bounce to dismiss Standford on 20.Khalid was joined by Shan where they took their time to compile the runs needed to win , against some tight bowling and the dropping of 7catches they was able to reach a partnership of 90 runs before Shan was bowled , probably the only way wickets were going to fall, as nobody could catch. Senior pro Bellis accounted for 2 quick wickets, to keep the game alive and the Intellectuals required 5 an over for the last 5overs.Khalid 63not out and Laurence McGarry on his 50Th Birthday sore the Intellectuals to a good win in a close match.Johnstone finished with 16-2 and the SACC dropped 14catches which would have been the difference.
