EYMET vs AFGHAN TIGERS, Sunday 17th June ....match 2 of 2 x T20
Time constraints led to the game being reduced to a 15-over contest. Adnan whacked 31 and Ahmed hit some monster sixes for 53. Cameos from Owais and Azizul took Eymet to 139 off 15 – 28 more than they had managed in the longer, previous innings!
Roland ‘Sausage’ Marshall was still on fire – in fact, more of a spicy merguez – and he proceeded to destroy the Afghan top order. Only over restrictions prevented him from getting a five-for. He was ably supported by Enayet whose nippy pace and movement did for the middle order. Owais and Tim then twirled in to sweep away the tail, the Afghans being dismissed for a paltry 58 off 11.2 overs.
Eymet’s biggest-ever Afghan crowd then borrowed equipment and played an impromptu match in the middle.
Many thanks to tea ladies Jean, Ursula and Carole, and to our sponsors the Pizzeria, the Café de Paris, Danelander and Aquitaine-Info.
