Victoria Lounge decided to bat first on pitch three and started very
well, running quickly between the wickets and putting away the bad
balls to the long boundaries.
Lounge's openers, James and Greg, put on a solid century partnership
before Soyfur Rahman came on to bowl.
Soyfur, fired up and frustrated, took a five-wicket haul at a time
when Victoria Lounge looked certain to accelerate further.
Victoria Park Juniors' opening batsmen Khalid Ahmed and Charlie
Challinor put on their second half century partnership of the season.
Khalid played an impressive pull shot towards the boundary which was
caught fantastically by one of Lounge's fielders.
The wicket of Charlie Challinor was unfortunate as Mehdi Abbas played
a straight drive which Lounge's Al, in his follow through, deflected onto
the stumps at the non-striker's end.
Quick fire runs and extravagant shots from Abbas and Panton saw
Victoria Park through to a four wicket victory. An enjoyable game played in
very good spirits.
