Cup: Sky v Dover Castle

Thursday 28 July 2005, Victoria Park

Sky won by 20 runs

Sky 159 - 6 off 16 overs

DC 139 all out 15.5 overs

Sky's Rizwan Siddiqui writes: Sky started slowly with preservation of wickets being the key objective in the early overs, with that objective met Sky upped the ante and reached 159 with powerful and sustained blows effected by the two Imran's - Khan and Yousaf and our most consistent run-getter this season Sarfraz. 

Imran Yousaf, simply not content with getting the runs, decided to make this 'his' match by removing Dover Castle's powerful top order with a devastating exhibition of pace bowling resulting in 3 wickets (all bowled) from 7 balls in his first 2 overs.

Following this early collapse Dover Castle were always behind the required run rate and despite a brilliant knock by one of their middle order Sky's spin attack shackled the batsman so effectively that in the end they fell well short of the 160 required.
