Citylife scrape home in thriller at the Prem
Chiang Mai cricket news
Citylife v UN Irish Pub, Sunday, February 10
In a match of see-sawing fortunes, City Life scrambled home
against the Irish Pub at Prem Centre a week last Sunday to win with two
wickets in hand.
Batting first the Irish Pub put together a modest 125 for 9 with only Mango
putting up any genuine resistance with a hard-hitting 23. Pick of the
bowlers were Nick Hanlon who bowled his steady leg-breaks to collect 3
wickets for 23 from his six overs, and Noor who chipped in with two wickets
for no runs in his only over to round off the innings. Worthy of note was
Niew’s performance with one wicket for 35 from his six, fairly accurate
overs and some fine fielding. He gets better with each match.
A minor highlight was the catch by Graeme at first slip that rebounded from
the hands of George at second to put an end to a troublesome, and
Early wickets saw City Life in trouble with the loss of George, Chris Coombs
and Makki with only 33 on the board. A steady 50 from Graeme supported by
Off with 22 took the score over 100 without further loss and a comfortable
win seemed assured. Then, within the space of 15 runs four wickets fell in
what was a mini collapse. However, Dean managed to hold things together for
the remaining few runs required.
The outstanding bowler for the Irish Pub was clearly Asif, who bowled with
accuracy and deviation to finish with the remarkable figures of 6 for 14.
