In damp and overcast conditions at the ACG, Patong won the toss elected to bat first. But it was Laguna who got off to the better start. Openers Wetherell and Hamilton were dismissed cheaply leaving Patong on 10 for 2 after three overs.
This brought Morton (71 off 54 balls) and Jordaan (33 off 30) to the crease. With boundaries difficult to come by on the heavy outfield the pair set about steadying the ship. They managed to rotate the strike well and keep the score ticking without taking many risks. At the 10-over mark Patong were 67 for 2.
This gave Patong a good platform to attack and up the run rate. Morton and Jordaan took the score to 103 before Cooper (2-29-3) broke the 93-run partnership in the 14th over. Jordaan’s wicket preceded a mini collapse as McDonald and Simmons fell in the 15th and 16th overs respectively.
At this stage Morton had found his range. He even earned himself a free brunch at The Slate Phuket (formally Indigo Pearl) by punching a hole in their advertising hoarding with a flat six. He was eventually bowled by the impressive Aneel (3-20-4) with the score on 131. Patong finished on 137 for 9 after the 20 overs. A competitive total given the difficult batting conditions.
Laguna got off to a very similar start to Patong and found themselves two wickets down for 10 after the 3rd over. A flurry of runs then followed courtesy of some loose bowling from Patong until R Sandarangani (13 off 18) was caught sharply by wicket keeper Hamilton off the bowling of Simmons.
The dangerous pair of Jha (47 off 35) and Khan (24 off 24) then rode their luck and started to find the boundary regularly, albeit with the help of some dropped catches. The partnership threatened to derail Patong’s perfect start to the season.
Bowling in tandem, Patong’s Jordaan (2-9-3) and Wetherell (3-5-3) applied the brakes. Some excellent and accurate bowling brought an end to Laguna’s free scoring. Laguna were certainly on top when Jordaan dismissed Jha with the score on 101 in the 13th over. When Wetherell claimed the wicket of Khan in the following over it was Patong who found themselves in the ascendancy.
The regular fall of wickets from this point on ensured a 25-run vistory for Patong Cricket Club who restricted Laguna CC to 118 for 9 after 20 overs.
Henno Jordaan earned the man-of-the-match award for his crucial contributions with bat and ball.

In Sunday’s other game it was Island Cricket Club (ICC) taking on the Thalang Cricket Team TCT). ICC won the toss and elected to bat first.

TCT saw some really nice pace bowling from Mudi coming in from the northern end with lots of edges and missed opportunities, but it wasn’t long into the first over when Mudi trapped Manish in front of the stumps with an LBW. Then some quick thinking from Baxter caught Savesh out of the crease running him out.

Watson opened the other end with some more accurate bowling while Ravi and Balesh tried to move the score along but after six overs ICC were 2 for 34.

Then came a shower which sent everyone back to the clubhouse. After the shower, Roshan was introduced to the attack and a catch was popped up to Nadeem sending Ravi to the shed. Ali Khan came to the crease to face Watson who bowled a cracking first ball removing both the middle and off stumps.

After the big hitting Ali had gone it was left to Balesh and Dashan to try to build on the score with some nice shots but eventually wickets to Roshan and Nadeem saw the ICC finish their innings with 79 runs on the board.

The rain delay meant TCT were reduced to 17 overs to reach the target of 80 to win the match.

Opening batsmen Watson and Nadeem started quite well but an edge through to Khan, who took ag a wonderful catch in 3rd slip, saw Nadeem heading for an early shower.

This brought in hard hitting Jha, and he and Watson had a couple of close calls but eventually settled into some nice shots quickly reaching ICC’s score by the 10th over. Prakesh managed 43 runs of 31 balls and Dave Watson 20 runs off 21 balls.

A comfortable win to the TCT team.
