Location: Douglas Ground
Report: Luke Marshall, captain Saturday 4ths
Batting first, two youngsters went out to open and set the tone with a mix of attacking shots, good running and solid defence when needed. Umair Choudhry (55) and Amaan Nasar (92 not out) put on 80 for the first wicket and both looked completely comfortable with everything thrown at them. Umair racing to his 50 with ease and Amaan carrying his bat for the innings. A great platform which helped us well on the way to 214-6 after our 40 overs. A quick fire 21 from Mo Salman helping to keep the runs ticking over. Their reply never got going thanks to some very tight bowling from more of our youngsters with Devin Fernando bamboozling his way to 2-23 off 7 and Shailan Srikanthan only allowing 9 runs from his 8 overs and getting a wicket too. Heru Miah picked up 3-18 from his 8 whilst Farhan Choudhry (1-64) and Mo Salman (1-9) also picking up wickets. Great work from everyone as Four Oaks never threatened to chase down our score.
