Played at Victoria Park, pitch 2
Report by Hassan Khan

This fixture was always going to be really tough, against the side currently at the top of division 2 of the VPCCL.

In glorious heatwave conditions, Victoria Lounge won the toss and elected to bat. Their class showed as three VL batsmen powered to unbeaten 50s. We did fight back to some extent, however, as Kemet bowled a superb four overs including a vital wicket with his first ball, a sharp chance at square leg, well held by yours truly! A second wicket had to wait until the final over as VL posted a monumental 174.

Our target was academic against a penetrative bowling attack, backed up by superb fielding. Nevertheless, Kemet completed a wonderful all round performance by sharing in an excellent opening stand of 50 with Ilyas. They were well supported by an agile Philip, until the latter pulled up with a sore hamstring in the penultimate over. A brave batting response resulted in OF falling 80 runs short. To give context to how strong a side VL are: they beat another Division Two side (Sports Interactive) by almost 200 runs last week.

Congratulations to VL but well done all for a gritty performance.
