Match Report

Under cloudy skies the Conference captain won the toss and invited the MCC to take first knock. A wicket in the first over set the tone and at 109 for five the gamble appeared to have been successful. At this point MCC captain Will House (ex Sussex) joined the Worcestershire wicket keeper Scott and they proceeded to add a magnificent 178 in 19 overs with all bowlers suffering, House scoring 108 and Scott 74 not out, the MCC finishing with 305 for 6, Dan Broughton the pick of the bowlers with 3 for 46.

Facing this daunting run chase the Conference openers, set off positively scoring 88 off 14 overs before James Middleton(31) was caught followed shortly by Andy Mellor (57) who was adjudged LBW. But Istiaq continued the run chase supported by Hassan (17) skipper Laeq Chishti , 42 off 35 balls and Tom Wright, 44 off 50 balls.  Seven were needed off the last over which Istiaq almost achieved before being magnificently caught by Scott for 86 off 79 balls but victory was achieved  with one ball to spare. A  wonderful  game won by the Conference by 3 wickets.
