Alfas 2nd´s v LMTCC Torrevieja C.C on Sat 24 Jun 2017 at 1.00
LMTCC Lost run feast of 550 with 8 players

Match report A run feast of 540 runs in todays game which almost all 80 overs were bowled in the end.

Torre travelled to Alfas with 8 players knowing it was going to be a hard day on the field, and a hard day it was when after losing the toss, Torre were asked to field.

A.Mcdowell started off brilliantly using the swing and pushed a maiden, put then the run feast buffet was open for buisness when the batsmen started getting bat on ball and found that hitting the gaps between the 6 fielders were easier than they thought and hit 21 of the 2nd over, and with that the run rate flew at 10 an over with no real chances of slowing them down of getting them out. By the 15th over alfas were 148/0. In desperate need of a miracle, G.Shelton was asked to turn his arm over, chances then became noticed as the ball was skied on various occasions only to see it dropped or land in the gaps. Eventually the breakthrough when Youngster J.Perman walked down the wicket only to see the bails whipped off by T.Knowles who had taken the gloves during the drinks break. a fine century in the blazing heat. couple overs later Shelton struck again bowling down leg and Mudusar pushing it into the one handed dive by T.Knowles. 245/2. A few bowling changes here and there saw some occacional wickets when P.Harvey go Ian to sky one to C.Wood at mid-on, followed by C.Wood getting the other centurion Abdul to top edge one high for T.Knowles to take another catch, then K.Wood cashing in a wicket bowling Alan thro the gates. C.Wood picked up another quick 2 wickets but were unable to take anymore before the 40 overs were up. Alfas finished 343/7 by the end.....

looking at a monstrous score the Torre batsmen looked to try gain something from the game and flew at 12 an over (with alot of help from the bowlers unable to find the rader), but in the 3rd over, K.Perman found some aim and bowled a straight ball which cleaned the top of off stump and saw in form K.Wood take a long walk back to the hut. the next over, other opener T.Knowles departed after knicking one thro to the keeper. 33/2 in 3 overs. After 2 quick wickets the 3rd wicket partnership between P.Harvey and D.Reid was repeated from the week before as they batted thro the overs ticking over the score board. the run rate slowed down quickly but the 2 batsmen werent in no pressure as the new target was to bat the batting points. D.Reid finally departed to Alfas delight when he went for a big shot and picked abdul, an innings that lasted 22 overs and bring Torre from 33/2 to 120/3. C.Guichard came in to assist P.Harvey who then decided to push the runs quicker as the new 2 batsmen passed the 3rd batting point of 150 followed by C.Guichard to give catching practice to M.Perman. G.Shelton entered and let P.Harvey carry on pushing as the new target was the mighty 200, Alfas saw the intentions and had a completly different target to defend. Torre needed 18 of 3 overs for the 4th batting point. After batting in the heat for 30+ overs P.Harvey was out slashing the ball back to the bowler. A.Mcdowell was sent to the crease aware of what was needed and after some sledging from skipper M.Perman smashed him down the ground for a mighty 4. by the last over 7 was needed for the batting point, 2 wicket were needed for max. bowling points for alfas.
4, . , . , WD, WD, Angus Stumped ! C.Wood in, .
last ball of the innings, 1 run needed, 1 wicket needed....... C.Wood the 13 yr old slapped the ball thro the covers for a single !!!! But after running the first the adrenaline went thro G.Shelton as he called for a second run only to have the ball hit the stumps before he could ground his bat.

both teams celebrating at the end of the day with alfas taking the full 20 points and 8 man Torre rewarded with 7 points for their energy throughout the day.

Torre have a friendly vs Interllectuals at home on saturday 1st July which is always a cracker of a game, and with Torre in batting form, should be a delightful run packed game
