Sky began their 2009 campaign with a convincing victory over league debutants Old Ranwellians by the not inconsiderable margin of 130 runs.

Having lost the toss Sky were expecting to be in the field especially given the smaller size of Pitch 1, however much to their surprise the Old Ranwellians offered first use of the strip to the opposition.

The old Ranwellian new ball partnership of James and Jimmy (after removing Ayaz in the 2nd over) bowled with a great degree of control and kept the run rate around the 6 per over mark. However the supporting cast was a tad more profligate and once the middle order partnership of Ahmed and Soomro had gauged the pitch the onslaught began to which the Old Ranwellians had no answer. Sky's innings finally concluded on 171 with a well deserved half century for Ahmed and Soomro just falling short of the landmark.

Sky decided to open with Rizwan Siddiqui and Aleem Hussain and with the 1st wicket falling in Siddiqui's second over the floodgates opened as he tore through the Old Ranwellians batting line up picking up 4 wickets, with Hussain and Ansab grabbing a wicket apiece the Ranwellian innings subsided in the 9th over with the score on 41.
