INTELLECTUALS SECURE SECOND SPOT WITH WIN AGAINST A DEPLETED BUT SPIRITED LA MANGA KINGS TEAM
Intellectuals 250 for 7 declared (24pts) beat La Manga Kings 123 all out (5pts) by 127 runs
Intellectuals: Tim Richards 68 and 7-0-25-3; Waseem Waris 64 and 9-3-15-1
La Manga Kings: Charlie R 5-0-32-2; Stephan R 6.4-0-34-2; and Thomas Vine 63 runs…
Intellectuals Man of the Match: Tim Richards.
Another leading performance with bat and ball. Mention should also be made of Faisal Fareed’s quick-fire 28 runs, Alex Cormack’s commendable 21 for 2 off 7 overs, and the skipper’s decision to use eight bowlers, with both Vincent O’Reilly and Thom Clark claiming a wicket each in their short spells.
Special credit also to the LM Kings’ Rumistrzewicz family who fielded four of the LM Kings’ nine players (mother, father and two sons), together contributing to a spirited team performance by taking four wickets and making 20 runs and causing all sorts of problems for the Intellectuals with the ball and frustrating them the bat.
