Ten members of the Old Boys team showed up in Skarpnäck on Saturday evening (24-Aug) for the return fixture against SACS. As SACS also were short a player it was agreed that we would have a 10-a-side 20 over match.  Naturally we lost the toss and prepared to field.

SACS started conservatively and methodically, with the opening partnership of Marcus and Dave setting a good platform until Dave retried. Which was roughly at the same stage Srikanth entered the attack, at which time the wickets started falling fairly regularly.  And between overs 8 and 14  six wickets fell for 27 runs. SACS pulled things back a little and we all out in the 18th over for 90 runs.  Srikanth ended the day with 5 for 9 runs off 4 overs, including a wicket maiden. Narsinh picked up 2,  Kshitij and Karl one each.

The chase from Stockholm started poorly,  with the captain (Karl) showing bad judgement in attempting to sweep the first ball and beign bowled for a duck.  We maintained the required run rate for the first 10 overs, wickets however we falling consistently. That is until the a long partnership between Graham and Marcus steadied the ship, so with 4 overs remaining we only needed 15 runs  and had 3 wickets in hand.  However at this time they tighten the bowling and runs became scare.   So come the last over we needed 9 runs to win. Unfortunately we only managed 6.  Batsmen reaching double figures were Graham (22*), Jeffery (15), Kshitij (12).

We'd liek to thank SCAS for being great hosts.  And Marcus for the supply of refreshments.
