August 27th, Lions U19 vs Sano Braves U19

Sano won the toss and elected to bowl first, so the Lions put Timmy and Taiga to open. The Lions were a reduced strength 9 players for this match. The match went Sano`s way from the first ball with H. Kakinuma clean bowling Timmy. Taiga was also bowled for a duck by H. Kakinuma in the 3rd over adding to the Lions misery. Luke replaced Taiga at number 4 and began a valiant effort, reaching 54 not out, however the other Lions continued to fall around him with the Lions innings coming to an end in the 18th over on a score of 84/8.

With Sano not feeling much pressure from the Lions total, they batted aggressively, and this showed in the Lions economy figures, with only Timmy having an economy lower than 6 and the previous matches star bowler Luke having an economy of 11.1 - what a difference a game can make in cricket. 5 of the Lions bowlers picked up a wicket each, but the game ended in the 11th over with Sano chasing down the required total.

Stats: Highest scoring batsman : Luke (54), best batting strike rate : Luke (95), most wickets : Eric, Kaede, Luke, Timmy & Vijay (1 each), best bowling economy : Timmy (3.4).

Player of the Match: N/A

Team:  Eric Harrison, Kaede Sommer, Luke Sloman, Nitin Chathrapathi Saravanakumar, Nived Namibar, Stefan Keet, Taiga Hague (Wicket Keeper), Timothy Moore (Captain), Vijay An.
