It was Super Saturday at the Marlboro cricket ground with the 2007 league champions taking on the newly crowned 2008 league winners..and what a match it turned out to be. Newly wed Eboo loss the toss to Safwan who decided to bat first. It was a batting friendly wicket, with universal paints making its debut on our wicket. The openers Aadil and Irfan went cheaply, with Moms following, not playing his usual game.Then entered Moosa, dressed as the little maestro Sachin, who together with Archie played one of the best partnerships of the season. Moosa scoring a good 95, and Archie a patient 63. This set up a competitive total of 199/6. 1st teams reply started with a solid start from Zain and Kadwa, however regular loss of wickets hampered their chase. Finally finishing on 185 all out, a good win for the 2nd team. At the post match interviews, Farhad conceded that his team were off their best, and congratulated the winning team on a truly great performance. However the highlight of the day was the great spirit in which the game was played. MARLBORO CRICKET CLUB has made huge strides in recent times and its all thanks to all those associated with the club. A big thank you from the Executive committee for true committment from all players..ISHAQ
