    Gavaskar's XI celebrate first win in 6 games

    A hundred run opening partnershp for Gavaskar's XI was the start of something great as they powered their way to a win against the odds. A first innings total of 262 was a mediocre total for Gav's XI, especially after they were 2/154. Both openers scored 50's but after that only Mohammed (30) colud get past 20. The match seemed to be out of reach at one stage with Flower's XI 3/204. But a great spell of bowling from Sharkey who finished with 5/93 but at one stage had 0/60 resricted them to 277.

    In a complete turn around from their usual second innings colapse saw Gavaskar's XI make 363 and gave them a 348 lead. T.Powell led the batting charge with 92* and he was backed up by Burns(73), Evans(71) and Andrews(59). Some tight bowling from Gav's XI saw them reach their first victory in 6 games. " It was a great win and the batsmen really showed some skill in the second innings" said an ecstatic DarkHunter who experienced his first win as manager.

    Gav's XI ao/262
    K.Andrews - 63
    Z.Marshall - 56

    Flower's XI ao/277
    S.Friend - 85
    T.Sharkey - 5/93
    H.Aston - 3/41

    Gav's XI ao/363
    T.Powell - 92*
    G.Burns - 73
    C.Evans - 71
    K.Andrews - 59
    A.Adams - 4/77
    O.Rai Singh - 3/54

    Flower's XI ao/255
    C.Rogers - 67
    D.Mohammed - 5/53

    MOM - T.Powell

    Border XI manager pleased about his teams upset win over top of the table, Sobers XI.

    Border manager Dave had this to say: "What a fantastic win. We went into the match as the underdogs coming off our recent losses to lower teams in the comp. They boys put in 110% and it payed off."

    "Sobers was sent in to bat. With one of their openers scooping a ball back to Z.Truscott for 0, it set the scene for a awsome bowling performance. The other oponer, Yapp, dug his heals in a bit and scored a respectable 55 untill he tickled one behind. Apart from that there was hardly any fight in the Sobers XI batting lineup. With G.Roll carving through the middle and lower orders picking up 4/22 off 10 overs. This had them all out for 199. What a surprise this was."

    "It was our shot to have a bat. We sent I.Underwood in to open the batting for a change, and it payed off. With Underwood scoring a very respectable 41. Hinds our long time opener scored a quick 24 before finding himself trapped in front. Enter Bassano. He was scoring fluently and his strokeplay was top class. Combined with Cole, these 2 were scoring freely and carving up the Sobers XI attack. Bassano was the first to go on 54. This left Cole at the crease still, who was batting himself into form. The longer he stayed at the crease the better he got. There wasnt a stable batter down the other end, and he found himself losing parrtners frequently, untill our hero with the ball, G.Roll came to the crease. His form from the bowling continued onto his batting, and he combined with Cole. Cole got trapped in front for a fantastic 137. While our number 9 batsman went on to make a unbeaten 75*. All out for 419."

    "There was no resistance from the Sobers XI batting lineup in their second innings, with the bowling hero from the first innings taking the honours once again. Roll picked up 5/29 off 15 overs, a magnificent effort which earned him a well deserved Man of the Match. "

    "News just came through that Ferd, the manager of Sobers XI has been missing now for 24 hours after his teams shock loss against us. There have been reported sightings of him locked in the Sobers XI clubrooms. These are yet to be confirmed i hear."

    "In other news, I have just seen the 2 double centuries by Hemp and Cowe for the Hadlee XI. Amazing Effort that."
