Congratulations to the Under 30 team for winning the first Over 30 vs Under 30 Series. They are the champions and will look to defend the Cup next season from the Over 30 guys. Their team is young, mostly under 25 and will be practicing hard over the off season to ensure they keep the Cup next season. Man of the Match was Farooq Akhtar for his solid batting at the end along with newcomer Umar Shafqat as their partnership was too much for the Over 30 guys. Under 30 were asked to bowl in cloudy and tough conditions for the batsman and they did well to restrict the Over 30 to only 94 from 21 overs. Rizve Ahmed and Atif Zafar batted well in the innings, but it wasnt enough as Under 30 remained firm under pressure and took the series! Some great bowling in the series overall from Adeel Syed, Abid Zafar, Mazaharul Islam, some great fielding from Farooq Akhtar, Saqib Zafar, Rizve Ahmed, great wicket keeping by Ariful Islam and Sathya Singh. Great knocks in the series as well from Atif Zafar, Rizve Ahmed, Mirza Shah, Abid Zafar, Saqib Zafar, Farooq Akhtar, Mazaharul Islam, Muhammed Adeel, and overall a great CLUB effort, in the end .. Danbury Cricket Club was the winner of course !!
