Sporting Alfas showed they would be a force to be reckoned with in this years league with a comprehensive 10 wicket victory in the season opener.

Valencia won the toss and elected to bat, a decision they were soon regretting when both openers were back in the pavillion with the visitors yet to reach double figures.

Alfas were dominant in all aspects of the game, but especially in their fielding, which was exemplary throughout the match. This was highlighted by Howe who took two sharp slip catches and a third equally difficult catch that was skied high into the air and came down with snow on the ball.

With skipper Laundon bowling his 9 overs consecutively and bagging two wickets in the process the visitors never looked like utilising all their overs. Waseem offered a little resistance batting at six, but with extras being the top score in the Valencia innings the visitors had it all to do at the interval stage.

Alfas put the Valencia bowling attack to the sword immediately and never looked troubled in chasing down 119 runs. Openers Howe and Spencer played with poise and class and dispatched runs to all corners of the ground.

Spencer, had one moment of luck, when he was dropped at first slip, with the game all but over, but the opener gained his composure and along with Howe saw the game through for Alfas to record a resounding result.
