LCC won the toss and elected to bat first and this brought W Y Bashir to the crease ably assisted by Patong’s Hico Mcdonald, making up the numbers for LCC who were one or two players short of a full team.

Opening the bowling for TCT was Mudi Rehman who was lightning fast with some attacking bowling in these early stages, and it wasn’t long before WY Bashir edged through to the wicket keeper, Prakash, for the first wicket.

Then came another PCC player for LCC, Alex Runhaar, who wanted to settle into some sort of partnership with Mcdonald. While TCT newcomer Morgan Odendaal also settled in with some accurate bowling.

Unfortunately, for the attack bowlers there were a number of dropped chances which should have taken these valuable wickets, but eventually another edge off Rehman’s bowling was taken by the wicket keeper, sending Runhaar back to the Pavilion.

It was then Ali Khan’s turn to take to the crease, but with some good bowling, again by Rehman, Khan was forced to make a loose shot which was caught in cover by Matt Sheldrake.

Next up to bat was Rishi Sandarangani who went cheaply, caught and bowled by Craig Murphy.

Laguna were looking a little shaky with four wickets for 57 runs, but S Kandolkar wanted to change that and was able to maintain valuable partnerships with McDonald, Sameer Khan and Iqbal Malik.

After 20 overs LCC reached a respectable 155 runs leaving TCT needing 156 to win the match.

TCT openers Carl Baxter and David Thomas, although not having had much practice in recent times, seemed to settle in well and looked comfortable. But Dasharn Vaiganker had other ideas and managed to catch both opening batsmen with LBWs.

Rehman knew he needed to get the score moving along and was knocking the ball around the ground, scoring at will. But the next batsman didn’t hang around for long, and when Mudi holed out in the outfield for 24 runs, TCT were starting to look under pressure.

Roshan Jayasuriya, who had also just returned to cricket, was able to keep the runs moving along, but once he lost his wicket TCT were under too much pressure and only managed 101 runs for 9 wickets, handing Laguna the win by 54 runs.

LCC have now made it two wins in a row, while TCT have suffered two losses.
