WINNING the toss Sully CC skipper Morgan gambled and elected to bat first on a damp wicket as the forecast was for light drizzle throughout the evening.

Habib and Jubayel (15) opened the innings and got off to a brisk start before the later was well caught.

Roshid joined Habib and they took an instant liking to the bowling hitting a 2nd wicket partnership of 105 before after hitting his 50, Roshid was LBW.

A couple of wickets fell leaving the Spartans on 135 for 4, Morgan not out 10 joined Habib who continued to plunder the bowling eventually being bowled for a superb 75 and a 5th wicket partnership of 50 leaving the Spartans on 185 at the close.

In response the wickets were shared evenly at the beginning of the opposition innings with Sunny and Nan taking two a piece.

Newbie Shubh and Sathish taking one each leaving the score on 26 for 6 after 10 overs, but then entered Ali Bukhari who in the space of 7 overs hit 72 and the scored rocketed to 116, before being well caught by Jubayel off the bowling of Roshid.
