The Phuket Blasters choose to bat first in the midday match and lived up to their name scoring 5/141 from their 16 overs. Iqbal Malik 46* (18) and Ali Khan 37 (17) plundered the Island Cricket Club (ICC) bowling attack, clearing the rope on seven occasions.

In reply, the ICC batsmen only managed four boundaries in their total of 5/103. Sarvesh Kandolkar was the best with 24* (17). The 38 run win by the Blasters has given them a strong run rate and almost guaranteed the team a spot in the August 7th grand final.

In the 2nd match, TCT sent the Kuckreja Boks in to bat under dark skies. The Boks made the most of the dry pitch striking 1/45 off 5.3 overs before rain forced umpire John King to take the players off the ground.

The rain eased and so to did the Boks run rate. TCT’s Prakash Jha enjoyed the wet conditions finishing with an impressive 2/9 (3 overs). The Boks 6/103 from their full 16 over allotment. Alex Runhaar 29 (28), Paddy Morton 26 (17).

TCT were 3/26 after five overs after Boks Hico McDonald and Runhaar picked up early wickets for the 2nd week in a row. Chris Williamson and Gregory Shaw then put on a 39 run partnership in their first match together.

A few lean overs and with some wickets left, TCT needing 16 runs to win from the last over of the innings. It all came down to the last ball where the C&C Marine 8’s format allows for a boundary to be of double value. Shaw was on strike needing 10 and his dream debut was complete when he sent the last ball over the long on rope to secure the win for TCT.

Two weeks remain in the C&C Marine Phuket cricket 8’s competition with all teams still in with a chance to play in the final.
