Match Report

With rain threatening  Cambridge found it hard going against a keen attack and had reached only 72 for two at 20 overs when the rain duly arrived. The 50 over match had to be reduced to 40 overs a side before play could recommence. This put Cambridge at a slight disadvantage and they continued to struggle. Keen fielding saw two run outs before Cambridge rallied to finish on 175 for six. Wickets were shared around the Conference bowlers with D  Jeavons  the pick having figures of 1 for 31 off 10 overs.

In response Conference lost an early wicket but Andy Mellor  set about the bowling with a series of outstanding shots scoring 55 off 40 balls and along with Mo  Istiaq (47) put the Conference in control of the game. Attiq Chishti continued the good work with a splendid  64 not out off 59 balls finishing with a spectacular six to win the match by seven wickets.
