The Muslim Youth Organisation/RAF’s Variety Store inaugural Hajjin Zeleena Rafeek Memorial countrywide Inter Jamaat Ten10 knock-out softball cricket tournament continued last Sunday September 18 at the MYO and Belle West Grounds.
Following are the results of matches played:
Queenstown Masjid vs Turkeyen Masjid – MYO Ground
Queenstown Masjid on a bright and sunny day won the toss and decided to set the target for the opposing team. The Queenstown Masjid team found themselves in early trouble as two wickets fell in the first over with only one run on the board.
The repair job was left for the Captain Imran Ally and his deputy Majeed Khan and they handled it to perfection. Majeed Khan made 24 (2×4 2×6) and fell when the score was 66 for 3. In came the explosive Riyad Najab and he made a quick fire 46 (34 5×6); Captain Imran Ally steadied the innings with a well composed 43* (2×4 2×6).
At the end of the Queenstown Innings they made 133 for 4. Amer was the pick of the bowlers for Turkeyen with 2 for 21 runs and supported by Asif with 1 for 16.
When Turkeyen Masjid took to the crease they found themselves in early trouble as tight bowling and good field placement by the Queenstown captain found them two wickets down by over number 2 bowled by Majeed Khan with the score on 13.
Having to go at just over 13 runs per over they were never in the hunt and they finally give up, surrendering to the Queenstown boys at 108 for 5 in their 10 overs. Brian made 34 (4×2 6×3). Majeed Khan was the pick of the bowlers for Queenstown with 3 for 9 runs and supported by Areeb Baksh with 1 for 19.
Belle West vs Wales/Sister’s Village- Belle West Ground
Wales/Sister’s Village batted first and made a mammoth 151 for 6 in their allotted 10 overs. Imran Khan scored 42 (1×4 5×6) and was supported by Haseeb Hassan with 32 (5×6), Fazal Bacchus 25 (2×4 2×6).
The home team (Belle West) in their reply was never up to the task being bowled out for 113. Ameer Khan 27 (2×6), Ibrahim Baksh 21 (3×4 1×6) and Raymond Khan 18 (1×4 2×6) were the main contributors. Bowling for the Wales/Sister’s Village Masjid, Asif Khan with 2 for 15 runs.
Blankenburg vs Corneila Ida- Belle West Ground
Blankenburg batted first and posted 137 for 8 in their allotted 10 overs. Naveed Ali made 47 and Naeem Bovell 34 run. Naeem Khalil with 1 for 9 and Aftab Hussain with 1 for 10 le dteh bowling for Corneila Ida who in their reply were on course at 94 for 3 in 6 overs but with the introduction of Altaf Mohamed in the 7th over, he pulled things back for Blankerburg Masjid by picking up 4 wickets in that over for a mere 3 runs.
That brought the equation down to 97 for 7 in 7 overs having to get 41 from 3 overs with 3 wickets in hand. In the 8th over two more wickets fell which brought the equation to 37 from 2 overs with 1 wicket standing.
The Blankenburg boys were scenting victory but Akram Hussain had other plans. He smashed 4 sixes in the 9th over and brought the target down to 11 from the last over and the Corneila Ida boys won the game with one ball to spare. Imtiaz Hack made 47 (5×6), Vikash Totaram 37 (4×6) and Akram Hussain 25 (4×6).
For Blankenburg Altaf Mohamed was the pick of the bowlers with 4 wickets for 11 runs in his two overs and Naeem Bovell with 2 for 20 runs. MYO got a walkover from Old Mosque while Enmore also gained a walkover from New Mosque.
