Phuket’s Outrigger T20 cricket: Round 7

Legacy Phuket Gazette



PHUKET: On a sunny Sunday for round 7 of Phuket’s Outrigger T20 Cricket league, ICC took on the Youth side in the morning session, while the Village faced Patong in the afternoon session.

In the morning match, ICC notched up a solid 162-7 batting first while the Youth could only manage 125-6 in reply. The much anticipated afternoon encounter between the Village and Patong, saw the Village continue on their winning ways chasing down Patong’s 141-7 in the 19th over.

After winning the toss, ICC chose to bat and set a target, but lost big hitting Ali Khan (0) for a golden duck in the 1st over. Fellow opener Shah Ullah (31) top scored for ICC and was well supported by the middle order with Balesh Desai (26), Arif Mushtaq (25), Vikram Sharma (16), Ravi Naik (11) and Deepak Mehra (10) enabling ICC to post a solid total of 162-7 from their 20 overs.

With a target of over 8 runs per over, the chase by the Youth was not going to be an easy one and they needed some of their experienced batsmen to fire with a match-winning innings. Bill Stahmer (23) and Pao (15) got their side off to a solid start with 43 run partnership. Andrew McMillan (14) got a start but fell shortly after the drinks break. Expectations were high when Tristan Sheridan (7) joined Pan (18) in the middle. However, he was clean bowled in the 15th over with the score on 88. Jay (24) gave it all he had scoring at more than a run a ball, but it was not enough. The Youth side reached 125-6 off their 20 overs but once again showed fighting spirit and the growing maturity which augurs well for them going forward.

In the afternoon match, the Village put Patong into bat after winning the toss. Patong openers Mike Khan (9) and Seemant Raju (50) put on a solid opening partnership of 60 runs. Paddy Morton (28) and Dave Thomas (24) also combined well with a 57 run partnership which enabled Patong to post a solid total of 141-7 from their 20 overs.

The Village got off to a bad start when Diwan Mydeen (0) had a rush of blood trying to hit the first ball he faced out of the ground only to edge it through to the keeper, notching up the second golden duck of the day. However, an elegant innings by captain, Paul Stamp (42) in partnership with Simon Wetherell (16) and later Martin Foster (41), pushed the total along to 95-3. Foster and Craig Murphy (22) then joined forces to comfortably guide the Village home with 143-3 in the 19th over.

The league table sees the Village consolidate their lead at the top remaining undefeated while, ICC have now secured second place ahead of Laguna and Patong.

This Sunday 25 August, sees Patong take on ICC in the morning and Laguna versus Youth in the afternoon. Play commences at 10:00 am.
