Action at the coast

There has been plenty of action at the coast recently, mostly centred around Mombasa Jafferys who have hosted a number of junior and community events.

In a warm up to the upcoming Junior Tournament on 31st October, Abbasali Mawji (40*), Kazimali Jaffer (2-0-11-4) and Siddiq Samani (2-0-8-3) combined to give their side a crunching 30 run win in a 10 over match.

In a community match the following day, Arman Warriors edged out Imamia Electrocutors by just 7 runs in a tightly fought 20-20 match.

Arman Warriors batted first scoring 118/8 in their 20 overs with Aliasger Abdalla (26), Mazhar Kassamali (16)and Husayn Virjee (15*) the main contributors. Pick of the bowling for the electrocutors was Mujahid Janmohammed who took 3/11 off his 4 overs while Kumayl Virjee took 2/10.

In reply Mohammed Fazel (35) and Mohammed Merali (28) had the Electrocutors looking good until some quick wickets and tight bowling stifled the run rate leaving them 7 runs short. Pick of the Warriors bowling was Miqdad Walji (2/16) with Husein Allidina, Fazle Kassamali, Shamil Khalfan and Mujtaba Janmohammed picking up a wicket each.
