a variety of reasons, some good, some less so, six players became
unavailable overnight or during the morning of Sunday. Thanks to
Kensington we constructed a match which sensibly Kensington won. On
another day several of the top order would be expected to make big
innings and thus set Kensington a testing target. In the event some
injudiious shots against the good bowling of Bish Nandi found Nomads
reeling at 66-5.A long period of rebuilding took place as the skipper
etched out an innings and when he was finally out in the 30th over the
returning three batsmen raised the total to a respectable 158.
early wickets by Terblanche and some edgy shots from Pickles and Ghosh
gave Nomads some hope for a serious upset but these two batsmen batted
sensibly, first digging in and then playing their shots. Kensington thus
ran out deserved victors by 8 wickets, their second victory since the
matches began in 2003.
Kensington skipper Rohan Ghosh presented Delarey Terblanche with a
bottle of Black Label as Nomads Man of the Match and Michael Blumberg
presented Rohan Ghosh with a Special Cobra as Kensinton MOM.
beautiful sunny day was rescued but just how so many players could fall
ill or go awhol so late in the day is mind boggling. May it never
