IE v Sonseca Cricket Club
Last Sunday, IE played its first home of Madrid League’15 match against Sonseca Cricket Club.
IE won the toss and elected to ball first. Batting first, the Sonseca cricket club managed to post a very good score on board, with their innings culminating at 231 for 9 in 40 overs.
It was a complete team effort with the top three batsman scoring more than 30 runs and later Javeed scoring a quick 46 runs that helped his team to put a huge total on the board. Mridul of IE did a very good job with ball as he took the first 5-wicket haul of Madrid League’15.
Chasing the large target, IE started well in the initial few overs but after that the fall of two quick wickets changed the entire scenario.
Later, the middle order wasn’t able to cope up with the pressure of huge target and the entire team collapsed in the 32nd over, making only 175 runs in total.
IE lost its first match of the Madrid League and will be looking forward to returning to winning ways in its next match against Madrid United on 31st May.
Highlights from match:
Sonseca won the match by 56 runs.
Sonseca – 231/9; Javeed – 46, Ishaan – 39, Sohail – 36; Mridul – 5/45
