MARSA WIN FINAL MATCH

With only one more match left to be played in the Malta Cricket Winter League, the Saturday morning rain looked as if it would spoil the day.

But it didn’t take long for the clouds to clear and blue skies made for a fine game of cricket. Melita CC were already victors of the trophy and this match was played for points in the final standings.

Melita won the toss and elected to bat. They didn’t get off to the best of starts falling at 24/4. H Majeed conceded his first ever golden duck at the hands of S Lucas who was on a hat trick on this debut for Marsa.

S. Lucas ended his spell with the best bowling figures for his team taking 3 wickets for 13 runs. Top scorers for Melita CC were G Kampff (23) and B Arora (28).

Marsa CC got off to a better start and managed 54 runs for the loss of 4 wickets and were always well balanced for the small run chase. When on 95 runs Marsa lost two quick wickets but the skipper M Sacco came to the crease and steadied his team with a well played 16 runs.

A Naudi (10) and G Lobban (5) saw the team through for the win. Top scorers for Marsa: N Khosla 27 (ret.) and H Hajela (18)

Umpires: J Grima and G Tavilla

Scorer: Eric Balakrishnan
