We lost both openers for 0 runs and at one stage we were 10 for 3. Farooq went into bat at number 4, but soon we were 30 for 4 after 4 overs and then 56 for 5. But then there was a great partnership between Farooq Saeed, playing a captain’s role (112 not out) and young Nikhil Makaria (48 not out) who took the total to 190 for 5 in 32 overs with 3 overs to spare.
Farooq Saeed scored 112 with the help of 7 sixes.
The Tartars are a very young side with most of the players under the age of 21. It’s a great mixture of juniors and a few good seniors.
