Modi In Action For MCC

While Kenya A are doing battle with Denmark, Hitesh Modi is also getting a tast of our Associate rivals as the MCC take on The Netherlands today. Essentially selected as a batsman, Hitesh did get three overs with the ball, but was on the expensive side conceding 20 runs, and not taking a wicket.
His real chance to strut his stuff should come during the run chase where he comes in at second drop for the tourists. With the Dutch having set MCC 266 to win, he will get ample opportunity to make his mark. Here's hoping he is able to get a good score on the board against a Dutch team that he last frustrated by batting with a broken finger to save the Intercontinental Cup match against them a couple of months ago.
Hitesh Modi has just been bowled by Jonkman for 21 off 39 balls. His score included 2 boundaries. A shame to be out after making a solid start. Still, good to see him playing again - it will no doubt take some time to regain his form completely. Hopefully he will play more matches during the rest of the tour.
