MADRID II SHADE SAN FULGENCIO IN SEASON OPENER
 
15th May 2011

MADRID 2 SHADE SAN FULGENCIO

Madrid Cricket Club shaded the season opener against San Fulgencio in a closely fought game at La Manga yesterday.

Madrid won the toss and elected to bat. The loss of Salama for a duck with the score on 1 gave San Fulgencio the perfect start. However, that brought Awan to the crease and he had other ideas about the outcome of the match. He scored 113 not out in a total of 215 for 4, which also included an unbroken stand of 104 with Chandaranani (38 not out) For Fulgencio Baker returned figures of 2 for 38 off 8 overs.

San Fulgencio batted well and fell short of their total by just 11 runs. Lee Blann hit an excellent 83 and Jack Webster hit a fine 50 not out, but the experience of the capital team got them over the finishing line in this closely fought contest.

Madrid took 15 points from the match and San Fulgencio got a token 5 points, which in all honesty could have been more. Madrid play today (Sunday 15th) against newcomers Orihuela at La Manga in a game that would see them go top of the league with a victory.
