Levante Lightning T20 v Valencia Stars on Sun 26 Mar 2017 at 18.30 - Match Two
Levante Cricket Club Lost Levante chasing mammoth 225 for 6 lost by 80 runs.
Most our bowlers were dispatched all over the park as Valencia Stars raised par to 255/6 with some clean striking.
Game one hatrick hero Tivey went for 32 runs in one over: 5 maximums and a wide (mercifully counting for just 2 and not having to be re-bowled according to the somewhat controversial rule).
Captain Barry shrewdly turned to himself and claimed 4 scalps amongst the carnage...
Tim set the right tone early in the mammoth ask, and Graham scored a handy 75, but with the field holding more catches than they did in game 1 Levante fell short ending on 175/7
