A Horror weekend for the Tigers as we lose 6 out of 7, but a brilliant win from our 7th Grade as they defend 108.

Fourth Grade needed to defend 167 vs Jandakot, but the loss of 2 bowlers to injury reduced them to 9 players and Jandakot feasted on the runs scoring 294. Vijay Kumar took 3/70, Asim Qureshi 3/82 and Haroon Ahmed 2/18. Will need a big comeback game next week top make finals.

Sixth Grade tried to defend 113 vs Leeming and they did a great job at the start having Leeming struggling at 4/45 with Guri Singh taking 3 wickets, but Leeming dug in and passed our score 5 down. The flood gates then opened up as they reached 6/244.

Seventh Grade were defending 108 vs Phoenix, but they reached 31 before the 1st wicket fell to Canakapalli which got our bowlers fired up as we took the next 9 wickets for just 47 runs. Dwarakanath taking 3/19, Balvinder Kumar 3/15, Manoj Kiradi 2/1 and a wicket each to Reddy and Ravi. We then batted for 13 overs, making 6/82. A great comeback win boys!!

Anto Baby taking 2/24 and Alex Samuel 2/23. The chase started well adding 47 for the first wicket but we lost a bunch of wickets to reach 6/102 when we made another comeback at 8/143.

ODG were away to Jandakot, won the toss and Bowled first. Jandakot had a field day with the bat as they poured on the runs to reach 2/225 with only Vihanga Silva and MA Zainudeen taking a wicket. The chase was going to be tough but we gave it a good shove as we reached 8/175. Sandeepa Vedage ending on 43no with 38 runs from 18 balls to Lakmal Madushanka with 3 sixes and 4 fours.
