An exciting match at the Prem Centre last week, February 15, saw victory go to City Life with one ball to spare. Batting first the Colts team compiled a respectable 238 for the loss of six wickets with Jigme Singye dominating the scene with 108 n.o., supported by fellow Bhutanian Thinly Norbu with a brisk 51. For City Life Martin Papworth bowled steadily to finish with 2/25 and Asif Khashoo 2/47.

In reply City Life staggered a little early in their innings and at one stage had lost seven wickets for only 153 but were steadied with a sparkling 59 n.o. by George Hamilton and a steady 34 from Dominic Williams.
Jigme was again to the fore with three wickets for 38 and Anchu 2 for 20.
The game went right to the wire and, with two balls to spare George Hamilton pushed a single to midwicket to secure a win for City Life.
Next week is also at Prem Centre where the Colts will do battle with the Irish Pub.
