IE won the toss and elected to ball first. Batting first, the Sonseca cricket club managed to post a very good score on board, with their innings culminating at 231 for 9 in 40 overs. It was a complete team effort with top 3 batsman scoring more than 30 runs and later Javeed scoring a quick 46 runs this helped the team to put a huge total on board. Mridul of IE did a very good job with ball as he took the first 5-wicket haul of Madrid League’15.
Following the target, IE started well in initial two overs but after that fall of two quick wickets changed the entire scenario. Later, middle order wasn’t able to cope up with pressure of huge target and the entire team collapsed in 32nd over making only 175 runs on board.
IE lost its first match of the Madrid League and will be looking forward to win its next match against Madrid United on 31st May and continue to be on the top of league table.
