MADRID I V VALENCIA STARS
 
24th July 2017

Madrid Cricket Club got their first premier league win at the seventh attempt when beating Valencia Stars last weekend.

Batting first Madrid posted the huge total of 306 for 9 from their overs. Australian Adam Langhans top scored with 71 and he was well supported by his skipper Richard Wilson who made 68 and Joe Healey who hit a half century.

Despite the amount of runs scored there were good bowling contributions from Khuzzam who bagged 4-56 and Arshad who bagged 2-45

Valencia Star put up a brave fight and received maximum batting points but were finally all out for 275. Asad (58) Hasan (50) Mohsin (44) and Khuzzam (39) all made telling scores but a fine bowling spell of spin from Joss Bancroft (3-39) helped to give Madrid their 31 run victory, and more importantly, the first team's first league win of the season.
