MCC SA5 put in a wonderful performance to record their third victory of the season.
After a downpour at our home oval, Chairman Zain quickly arranged to move to fixture to Scawlands. Bowling first on a rather sleepy wicket MCC bundled out the host for a meagre 134. Chief destroyers Nasier 4/33 and Juju,turning back the years 4/19.
The chase with a large storm loooming, was awesome. After openers Moosa and Zain departed, Eboo looked good scoring 39 off 42 balls, and Farhad 50 not out off 59.Nasier ended the game with a huge six!
However, yet again we struggled to kill off the game after taking the early advantage.In my opinion, we are under-estimating the oppositions lower order and bowling erratically rather than sticking to what we good at. If we stick to the basics and make the batsman look for the runs, the wickets should take care of themselves. We are improving and this season looks full of promise.
Next fixture: Away to Bedfordview...
