Figures suggest this game was dominated by the ball as our boys kept the run rate very low and bowled Cardiff out for 89 in 36th over. Nic Leahy (3-1) fast becoming known as the finisher has produced another bowling spell of which if it was a computer game you could imagine a cheat code was entered. His figures were backed up by Rhys Fallavollita (3-23).

After starting the run chase very comfortably with Opener Pat Huolohan (31) and first drop Nic Leahy (20) a bit of panic set in and a huge clump of wickets began to tumble as our 4’s scraped over the line finishing 8 for 90 in the 33rd over. Honourable mention to Ryan Mitchison (8*) who entered the batting at 2 down and remained calm and brought the run chase home.
