Dundee HSFP beat Falkland by 5 wkts
June the 15th was an unseasonably cold overcast Saturday in Dundee but the ground although damp was thankfully playable. Falkland Captain Ryan Hepburn won the toss and decided to bat first. The wicket proved to be one of variable bounce and the Falkland batsmen struggled with the unpredictability. Cameron Nellies worked commendably hard and reached 35 from 52 deliveries before being stumped off the bowling of Tom McFarlane. Even Harsha Cooray could only make 2 runs before being bowled by Z.Rasheed. Lyle Robertson did well making 20 runs from 20 deliveries. Falkland were all out for 122 from just 30.3 overs.
Dundee High School didn't find the going any easier. Ryan Hepburn took 4 wickets during his allotted 9 overs for just 18 runs. Just to underline how difficult batting conditions were, Dundee's Ned Wright scored just 7 runs from 43 deliveries. However thanks to 32 from Upamal and 43 not out from Z.Rasheed, Dundee reached their target of 123 in 34.5 overs and won the match by 5 wickets.
