After much anticipation Torrevieja hosted valencia stars in the first league game of the season where the weather was hot and the cricket was fresh. Having won the toss Torre Skipper Chris decided to bat first whish seemed a good choice as the home team put a very nice 197/9 after their alloted overs with opener Liegh Blann (65) and cairan Guicahrd (37*) the pick of the batsmen.
with a very big score on the board for this pitch Torre went out to field with their heads held high, Tension was straight away applied when a 6 was hit in the first over. Runs came quite quickly in the first 15 overs with Valencia stars opener scoring 42 before being caught on the boundary by youngster Ben Appleby. At drinks Valencia looked the stronger side at 110/3 but torre came out looking for the wicket after drinks and they got them. taking 5 wickets in the following 8 overs. by the 30 over mark it was a very close game with torre needing 2 wickets and valencia needing 25 runs. With Torres main bowlers being bowled out Chris looked to the tallented youth pace bowlers but unfortunately the pressure was to much for them,
Valencia won the game in a high tensión atmosphere and with 2 overs to spare.
Next week Torre host Madrid II in what should be another great game !!!
