Motown-MCA 40-overs Season Ends with Defeat to Lions

On Saturday at the Hartland Ground Motown-MCA were knocked out of the MichCA 40-overs competition by a strong Lions team, led by captain Shahid Malik, whose 50 helped his team to what was a solid total of 151 in a match reduced to 33 overs because of rain, and on an outfield that was very slow indeed.  Kishan Patel took 2/16, Murali 3/40, Mani 2/29, and Hari 2/26.  In reply, openers Shyam Mayasandra and Gordon Makin were cautious, struggling to move the score along as the pitch dried and added skiddy bounce to the problems, and after Shyam Mayasandra was out for 27, no one else could take on the bowling, although Anurag Yerabati fought a valiant rearguard action.  Wickets tumbled, and Motown-MCA were bowled out short of the target.

More to follow.
