Warriors defeat Caley in U15 fixture

11 Jun

From Ian Brown

Somehow, despite the heavy rain of the prior day, Arbroath CC's Lochlands ground looked in almost perfect condition as the teams arrived.

The Highlanders won the toss and elected to bat and looked well set at 54 for 1 off 18 overs. However, this quickly became 65 for 4 thanks to Ware and Tahir's superb bowling.

The Highlanders scoring rate then slowed, but a stand of 41 for the fifth wicket between Pearson and Davies kept them in the game.

After they lost the fifth wicket they were unable to accelerate towards the end of the innings and finished on 132 for 8 off their 50 overs. In reply the Warriors batted very sensibly rotating the strike well and punishing the bad ball and with the Highlanders only able to take 1 wicket the Warriors cruised to victory in the 37th over with Ahmed unbeaten on 55 and Shah on 42* seeing them home.
