Scorecard

East Belfast v Ards Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 10 Jun 2006 at
Ards Cricket Club Lost 6 wickets

Match report On the surface this appears to be a shock result against one of the section's perennial strugglers. However, East Belfast deserved their victory on account of their razor-sharp athleticism in the field (they threw down the stumps on at least 6 occasions); the accuracy, variety, and depth of their spin bowling (8 bowlers used); and the sheer technical class of several of their batsmen, many of whom could play at a much higher standard.
On an excellent pitch with a short boundary, 240 would have been a normal par score. Main contributors were Monty with 36, Garry with a fluent and powerful 48 and May with a typical 30. A number of boundaries and sixes were hit but the accuracy of the bowling meant we didn't score off anything like as many deliveries as we should have.
In reply East Belfast sauntered to their target with half the overs remaining. none of the bowlers could exert any control as any minor deviation from an accurate line and length were punished to the full. Dugyala contributed a flawless 47 until over-confidence allowed Bird to have him LBW. When Ards had a sniff of a chance at 125 for 4, Ashed and Majid easily saw off the storm and cantered to 50 partnership which concluded the match.
On this form East Belfast are in an outstanding position to win Section 4 this season.
