A top order collapse saw Scintilla CC fall to a shock defeat at Tennyson CC.

Tennyson won the toss and opted to bat first. Ayaz Karim’s bowlers were on red hot form and bowled the hosts out 128/10 from 27.2 overs. Salman top scored with 37.

Ahmad Norharif Hamidon was the chief wicket taker with figures of 5/22 (8.2 overs), followed by Hassan Rony 2/17 (6 overs), Sajal Rahman 1/17 (3 overs), Abul Hasib 1/13  (4 overs) and Iftekhar 1/16 (5 overs).

To great disappointment Scintilla could not build on the momentum gained and were all bowled out 109/10 in 25.5 overs with Norharif scoring 29 and Zahed Mamun 19.

For the hosts Habib took 5/31 and Moyes 3/36 to ensure a Tennyson win by 20 runs.

Scintilla captain Ayaz Karim said: “We are all very disappointed with the way things panned out today. Our batting was not up to scratch and we allowed our opponents to exploit our weaknesses. Full credit to Tennyson for their spirit and fightback.”
