Numerous inter-league friendlies took place over the Easter weekend but Madrid United went one step further and travelled to the Cartama Oval in Malaga for a match up with a local Andalucia XI.
The match was an high scoring affair with the Andalucia eventually emerging victorious by 45 runs. The hosts batting first and scored a testing 245 runs in their 40 over allocation.
In reply, the team from the capital city who will be also taking part in the Madrid Charity Tournament at La Manga later this month, managed a creditable 210 all out.
The Cartama Oval is a fantastic venue to play cricket. It now has a grass wicket and wonderful panoramic surroundings. It is in close proximity to Malaga airport and the excellent Malaga climate allows the sport to be played all year round.
