Holy Cross CC v Edinburgh South Cricket Club Mitres on Thu 19 May 2011 at 18.00
Edinburgh South Cricket Club Lost By 21 runs.

Match report An absorbing T20 affair at the Arboretum Oval in North Edinburgh. Played in good light conditions though with an ever increasing wind-chill as the game progressed!

Holy Cross were put into bat (a mutual agreement between to the 2 sides, as opposed to the toss of a coin). Initial tight bowling by Farooq and Shah was quickly replaced by more than a few over & under pitched balls coupled with a few dropped catches, which saw Holy Cross race to a daunting 101 from 10 overs.
Cue Magnus and James to eat into their run rate & also their wickets for column, along with sharp, if defensively set fielding, saw Holy Cross finish on 168/5.

The Mitres opened up their reply with Jim and Shah putting on a solid 51 run partnership before they both were dismissed within quick succession to balls that far belied their batting abilities. Cue some powerful middle-order hitting from Praveen, supported by willing partners in Craig and Andrew Buddery. Andrew Barrie fell cheaply batting at no. 6 which led to James setting out to play a Captain's innings and try and chase down an ever increasing required run-rate, with the score on 97/6. Lusty blows from James and plucky play from Andrew Buddery saw the pair put on a 50 partnership in the space of 5 overs to see us home to a respectable 147/5, still 21 runs short of the set target.

A narrow defeat, but many positives to take, including 2 50-run partnerships. Real finds in Magnus's varied spin bowling & Andrew Buddery's batting (his first innings in 10 years!).
