After having 2 practise games it was time for the real stuff, the beginning of the competition.
The team was strengthen due the arrival of our overseas Letlo Sesele. After reaching in Nijmegen after 1,5 hour drive, having a cup of coffee, we started the warming up. After winning the toss the skipper decided to have a bowl, reason; we didn't know the wicket and wanted them set a target.
Mohsin en Khatib opened the bowling and the hard work was paying off. The first two batsmen went ran out due to some good fielding. After having them 19/2 we were on top. Their overseas was dropped on 0 at point and making 47. We came back strongly, they were 90/2 and collapsed for 149 all out. Our openers shahrukh and Zakir couldn't make the most of it and went out cheaply. It was a bit of sesele show making 61 of 30 balls, blasting 4 huge sixes! After being in the driving seat 110/5 we had a bad session and were quickly 118/9.
Saqib and Amir did bring us in the game and went needing 6, saqib tried to finish it with a six, but unfortunately it went for 4.
Needing just 2 runs the win, aamir took a single of the first bowl, the very next bowl saqib got bowled by a good Yorker.
Result of the match a TIE!!
Coming Thursday another game and new changes to get 2 points.
