The Dels first T20 of the season saw us come against us the Vagabonds again and we had a great chance to make up for last weekend’s loss. Nugget started the game off well winning the toss and we decided to have a bat on another KCC road.
The Vagabonds made an early in road into our batting however Woody and K Dawg/Henry the Octopus set about bringing the crowds back and started hitting boundaries at will. However just when we were looking at a possible total of 200, 2 quick run outs (well done Nugget) put us on the back foot and suddenly we were looking at total of 140. Enter Farooq and with his late hockey styled hitting and with Waq Attack chipping in we posted a very respectable 166.
Unfortunately we never really set the standard in the field, the Vagabonds got off to a good start and were flying until Chris Macnulty made 2 quick break throughs. Unfortunately with a couple of dropped catches and some wayward bowling again the Vagabonds passed our total 4 down with 2.5 over's left.
It was a disappointing finish as I thought with our bowling 166 was going to be enough, however extras and dropped catches proved our undoing again. T20 cricket is quite new to all of us having only played a very limited amount of this type of cricket and the double header provided us with a great opportunity to get our season underway with a victory and to make up for the previous game.
