Madrid Cricket Club headed off to the island of Ibiza last weekend for a well deserved end of season friendly and came back from the tour with a victory under their belts.
Ibiza batted first and scored a very respectable 187 for 9 off their 40 overs at the beautiful Polo ground. In reply Madrid kept up with the required run rate and at the half way stage of the visitors innings things were evenly balanced.
At 99 for 4 Madrid continued to force the momentum and surged forward to win the game comfortably. The hosts plugged away but Madrid finally put the game to bed in the 30th over with six wickets to spare.
The game was played in excellent spirit and once again Ibiza proved to be excellent hosts. Both clubs are looking forward to are-match already in the near future.
