Empuriabrava played hosts to Olot Tigers in a Group C League encounter last Sunday and it was the hosts who cruised to a six wicket victory.
Batting first, the Tigers were soon in trouble losing their opener Wasim for just two at the start of their innings. Some steady batting from Pankaj (39) Sunny (28) and Sachin (26) got the Olot side back on track but a middle order slump reduce a potential good score into an average one.
The Tigers were finally all out for 148 in the 22nd over.Asam, with three for 17 was the pick of the Empuriabrava bowling attack, bagging three wickets for a very economical 17 runs.
Empuriabrava then cruised to victory despite the early blip of having Aqab bowled for a duck by Pankaj early on. A fourth wicket partnership between Tariq (35) and Ali with 44 not out ensured there were no more hiccoughs and Empuriabrava finally won the match with six wickets in hand and ten overs to spare.
Empuriabrava 149 for 4 beat Olot Tigers 148 all out by six wickets.
