CRICKET: On a damp and overcast morning at the Alan Cooke Ground (ACG) last Sunday (Oct 10), Laguna Cricket Club (LCC) took on Patong Cricket Club (PCC) in the first game of the day and were hoping to put an end to PCC’s unbeaten run in the Outrigger T20 tournament.

Patong won the toss and Captain S Raju opted to bat first with Raju keen to post another large total for Laguna to chase.

A van Blerk and Raju opened the innings for PCC and both batsman looked to attack the LCC bowlers at every available opportunity.

Van Blerk (9) opened with a quick single before launching P Borkar for a huge six. Raju (1) attempted to follow Van Blerks lead but was well caught after miss-timing a good delivery. A few balls later, Van Blerk followed him with a carbon copy dismissal.

S Hamilton (1) then to the crease, but the usually reliable batsman was quickly sent back to the clubhouse by Borkar. D Thomas (14) was next batsman and he played the supporting role to partner H Jordaan (77) who was in devastating form. The 50 run partnership came in the 7th over and Jordaan’s 50 came just before the drinks break.

After the break, Thomas decided to go on the attack but was caught on the long on boundary. H McDonald (17) continued the attacking mindset but was brilliantly caught in the outfield. Jordaan was eventually caught on the boundary for 77 off just 50 deliveries. D Watson (9) and P Morton (13) took the Patong innings to a close, setting Laguna 167 to win.

BIS

Laguna, needing nearly 7 runs an over, started positively with openers P Jha (63) and A Khan (44) getting off to a blistering start. Assisted by some wayward bowling by Patong, they dispatched anything loose to the boundary.

Their 50 run partnership came in just the 5th over and the hundred run partnership in the 8th over, off just 68 deliveries. With the score at 102 in the 9th over, Khan was eventually dismissed just six runs shy of his 50. Two balls later, M Kohler (2) followed Khan being clean bowled. Even with two quick wickets, the drinks break couldn’t come fast enough for PCC.

But after drinks Jha continued to go about his ruthless batting, but R Sadarangani (5) couldn’t stay with him, Jordaan clipping the top of his stumps with a full toss. Jordaan had got another breakthrough and at this point the rain, which had held off all morning, started to fall and the players left the field for the shelter of the clubhouse. The rain delay meant that the number of overs and total for Laguna to chase was modified resulting in Laguna needing just 11 runs from three overs.

Opener Jha and S Khan (7) went about reaching the total as quickly as possible, but once again the rain started to pour down and the Laguna innings was called off after the 15th over with the score on 141.

Laguna won the match by means of superior run rate and deservedly so, and also brought PCC’S unbeaten run to an end.
