annihilates Fraser Valley by 10 wickets
Aug 10th, Seattle and Fraser Valley went into this game knowing
that this was the most important showdown of the year as the loser
was virtually assured of slipping into Division 2 next year. Seattle
lost the toss and in typical Brockton Point tradition, Fraser Valley
decided to take strike first. Conditions were a bit muggy and helpful
to the opening swing bowling attack of Gulli and Abid. Seattle produced
one of the best fielding displays of the year by taking spectacular
catches, specially from Fahad, a run out from the deep cover and
very soon Gulli (3 wickets) and Abid ( 2 wickets) both bowling a
tight line had reduced Fraser Valley to 65 for 6. There was a slight
rear guard action in the end and Fraser Valley managed to score
134 all out with Aslam getting another 3 wickets to wrap up the
tail. Seattle went into chase with openers Salim and Ranjan both
in good form and much to Fraser Valley's dismay treated the spectators
to a wonderful display of batting characterized by intelligent running
between wickets and punching the ball thru the gaps all over Brockton
point for boundaries. In the end a chanceless knock by Ranjan (63
n.o) and Salim (53 n.o) brought the game home in 26 overs only with
an unbeaten partnership of 135 runs for the opening wicket....Seattle
won by 10 wickets and finished the game in style at 5:30 PM!!!
A comprehensive victory for Seattle who will take on Abbotsford
in their one and only home game of the year..a victory will ensure
Seattle a place in division 1 for next year.
