Ismail on fire as
Warriors topple City Life
The first match of the New Year saw lots of excitement and good
cricket when the Warriors enjoyed a comfortable win over City Life at the
Gymkhana last Sunday with six overs to spare.
Batting first, City Life struggled to reach 142 with only Makki, a typical
swashbuckling 29, and Thong, with a controlled innings of defense and
aggression, scoring 57 not out, as the major scorers.
Ishmael, bowling with lively pace, took 3 City Life wickets for 19 with
left-armer Chris Simmons 2 for 17 and Noor, six overs for an economical 10
runs, lending good support.
Despite an early breakthrough, Warriors reached 146 for the loss of only 6
wickets with Ishmael scoring a delightful 67 not out and Shiffy 20.
The “Blumer’s” team at the Olde Bell consisted of the
delightful Antonia and Sophie giving the guys a run for their money.
