Further Match Report on the game from George Wambeek
Cricket Espana Costa Blanca Cricket League.
Cricket Espana League Division 1, at La Manga Golf Resort in Murcia, took place between Home Team La Manga CC who were Sponsored by Murcia Villas and against Madrid CC with Captain George Wambeek winning the toss again and electing to bat first on a sunny and dry wicket after the nights heavy rain in the surrounding areas.
A steady start by Munib and Parker took the score up to 40 before Munib who is normally the big run getter edging a fine nick to the keeper for 7,and to be joined by Garside who made a steady 40 before he was out to a another fine catch by the keeper standing up to the wicket.
There was a good steady partnership of 91 by the two middle order batsmen Farhat and Talat before Talat out LBW with Farhat a good and steady 69 to bring the Final total 258-9 down with La Manga getting 4 batting points, and the teams went in for tea at the SI Bar before the Madrid Innings Started,
As Madrid CC went into bat looking at a fair total to chase, but they came across the Spanish National opening bowlers running at them from both ends and it was a bit hot to handle as the batting started to crumble steadily and only the captain of Madrid stood around for 17 before he was caught.
Iqbal took 5 wickets and was well supported by T Ali and especially Farhat, who with only 3 balls took the last two wickets and giving La Manga a 203 run victory and gaining 19 points.
