Falkland beat Perth Doocot by 6 wkts
Falkland had what in the end was an easy victory at Doocot Park, Perth on Saturday. Ryan Hepburn won the toss and quite rightly opted to insert Perth on what turned out to be a difficult early season pitch on a very cold day. The ball tended to keep low, but the pitch was unpredictable, and all that Falkland really had to do was bowl straight. They did so admirably with Ryan Hepburn, Darren Pearce and Lyle Robertson each taking 3 wickets to dismiss the Perth side for 68 in 36 Overs.
The score was nothing like enough even in poor batting conditions, but Falkland stumbled a little with some of the early batsmen out to injudicious strokes, but Harsha Cooray and Lyle Robertson got together and by sensible batting, mainly in singles, against Saeed the professional of Perth, they saw Falkland over the line in 20 Overs.
Last week's game against Arbroath having been rained off, this was Falkland's first victory of the League season.
