RBCC1 vs Leige CC (home)

RBCC won by 8 wickets

Match Report

In a must-win home game for the first team of RBCC, after a string of few unfortunate losses, the toss did not go in favour as we were put on to field on a sunny day. The away team started off reasonably well, but 4 quick wickets from Ricky meant that the visitors were reeling at 51 for the loss of 4 wickets. Ricky eventually finished with yet another 5-wicket hall. Every bowler stuck to good channels which made the Liege batsmen not get away with easy runs. Waqas, Badri and Maqsood also chipped in with vital breakthroughs restricting the away team at 136.

There was some really good fielding display and Badri picked up two good catches at crucial moments of the game. The low scoring game meant that the openers had to just hang in there and ensure no quick wickets were lost, and they managed to do a perfect job with that. Maqsood and Shahbaz put on a 65-run opening stand laying a solid platform.

After two quick wickets, Waqas came in and scored a quick fire 50 to ensure a clinical performance from the RBCC lads. Shahbaz eventually was not out at 42.

After two good games over the weekend for the boys, they will be optimistic in their future league games.
