Victoria Park Juniors v Victoria Lounge

Tuesday 2 June 2009, Victoria Park
Victoria Park Juniors won by 4 wickets

Victoria Lounge won the toss and chose to bat

Victoria Lounge: 130 for 6 in 16 overs
James 57 not out
Greg 31
S Rahman 3-0-11-5

Victoria Park Juniors: 131 for 2 in 15 overs
M Abbas 43 not out
C Challinor 29
Tim 4-0-31-1 

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.
