LMTCC Torrevieja C.C v La Manga c.c on Sat 05 May 2018 at 11.00
LMTCC Won great start to ECCL2

Match report The day had arrived, after a long winter with lots of training and lots of friendlies, the first league game was upon us. Torrevieja vs La Manga.

A great start to the season as Skipper K.Wood of Torre won the toss and elected to bowl first, a few clouds in the sky and the La Manga openers made it rain boundaries when 20 were hit in the first 3 overs. The speedy start was ruined when S.Khan got C.Hunt to chop the ball onto his stumps for a quick fire 30 and the first wicket to fall in the league. Wickets fell occasionally but at the expense of alot of runs as by the 15 over mark, the score was 65/4 for la manga. 2 quick wickets after the drinks break made Torre the team on top at 71/6 but a fine partnership with some very sensible batting saw the 7th wicket stand go for 44 runs. An Important partnership that ended when I.Hunt was trapped LBW 1 ball before drinks. 115/7 at the 30 over mark. Both teams looking for the bonus points, La manga pushing for the 150 mark and Torre trying to take the final 3 wickets. Some fielding mistakes and some unaccurate bowling saw the runs come easily and quickly. It was C.Wood who came into the bowling attack and claimed the wicket of D.Warwick who had knoched up a good score of 25. With 3 overs left in the innings, La Manga needed 7 to reach 150 whilst Torre still needed 2 more wickets. Some tight bowling but the fielding still slow saw some sneaky singles taken and the score reaching the 150 mark in the final over with 3 balls left. R.Maini managed to get a Wicket but on the last ball of the innings. S.Khan earned 3 wickets to his name while C.Wood and A.Khan claimed 2 wickets each and R.Maini with P.Singh a wicket each too. La Manga posted a score of 151/9 of their alloted 40 overs.

A decent total on Torrevieja┬┤s ground. The Torre boys went out to bat and took the fight to the la manga bowlers when P.Michael found some early form and hit 39 in an opening partnership of 55 before being bowled out in the 9th over. P.Harvey came in at 3 to assist K.Wood and managed to push the score to 72 until K.Wood was caught on the boundary. R,Maini was in but soon out without adding to the score. T.Knowles was in at 5 with the score at 73/3 of 14 overs. The 2 batsmen stuck their heads down and played sensible whilst punishing the bad balls to the rope. The score reached the 100 mark in the 20th over and looking solid. A partnership of 40 between the boys before T.Knowles tried playing a shot to big and was bowled. 113/4. 38 to win and P.Singh came in to bat. Defending a couple overs to get his eye in then decided to open his arms and smash the ball to all parts of the ground. The Score Accelerated to 147/4 and P.Singh with no sign of slowing down finished the game in style with a nice 6 over mid-on. A fine batting performance with P.Michaels 39, P.Harveys 28* and P.Singhs 33* being the pick of the batsmen. Torre earned 19 points whilst la Manga took 5 from this fixture
