In true Victoria Park league fashion both teams refused to allow the torrential rain of one hour earlier stop play, despite the fact that both the other scheduled matches were cancelled.

Skipper Michael lost his first toss of the season as the Tigers unsurprisingly elected to bat first. In contrast to the earlier stormy weather the Ravens headed into the field bathed in bright sunshine and limited the Tigers to 88 from their 12 overs with Dennis the pick of bowlers conceeding only 11 runs from his 3 overs.

As it turned out it was an excellent toss to lose as no sooner as the Tigers innings ended the heavens opened. In increasinly difficult bowling and fielding conditions the Ravens notched up the required runs in a little under 6 overs thanks to some big hitting from Ken who retired on 50 in the fifth over.

And finally a word on our opponents the Tigers. A better team than the scorecard suggests and a good bunch of guys who are an excellent addition to the league.

Both teams braved the inclement weather for a reduced over encounter. Carrot cake was enjoyed by all.
