Zami’s win on a Sunday

[by Umer] Last week VVV informed us they did not have a field to play us on Saturday, and if it would be possible to play at ACC, we told VVV the 3rd ground is available and we could play. Just a few days before the game, we were told that on Saturday there is a event to be held on the ground we were going to play on and all grounds on Sunday were taken bij the other senior teams for their matches, so we called the game of and play the game another week, but a day later i was informed a ground is available as the match of ACC 5 was called off, so if both teams could get 11 there is a game, and there was! My compliments to VVV for managing to get a team to play us and all round is was a nice good day played with the spirit of the game!

We won the toss and decided to field first, with Girish, Varun, Vinodh and Sid playing for us to give us 11 and give them a game as they were not playing this weekend. With some good bowling and good fielding we bowled VVV out for 127 runs in 29,4 overs with some good bowling from Vinodh 7 overs-1 maiden-24 runs-5 wickets! A fiver on debut for the zami! Great bowling from Vinodh! Girish had a great spell with 6,4-20-3 and Nagesh with 7-17-1 showing his class every week and the best bowler of the zami this season so far! Briljant run out from Sid! and great catches from Michael, Mushaf, Abu and Girish! after a good and long lunch Sid and Mushaf were sent in to open and give us a good start with the task of not losing a wicket in the first 10 overs, and they did this very well, the first wicket fell in the 19th over with 94 runs on the board and with Sid being caught on 41, Varun came in and supported Mushaf who made his first fifty ever! Great innings from Mushaf who has been very patient and supporting other batsman and today he rewarded his patient with 54*! Great innings and hope we see many more!

We reached the total of 128 for 1 in 25,1 overs.

It was a good Sunday , seeing the 3rd and Zomi also win their matches! This weekend we have a Bye, but are invited by Hilversum to play a friendly at Hilversum as we have build a nice relationship with them in the last years.
