La Manga Classic Tournament (DAY 1)

March 23, 2024

Result from Day 1 of the La Manga Classic T20 tournament.

Sunny Skies and positive vibes as the LMTCC team arrived for their first game of their campaign vs Royal Engineers. After the Toss, LMTCC set to the field first.

An innings of ups and downs with the powerplay going 30/2 but the Royal Engineers batting deep and getting to 145/7.

A. Alger - 20/3 off 4

H. James - 23/0 off 4

D. Mcclements - 17/0 off 2

G. Singh - 35/1 off 4

R. Maini - 33/1 off 4

M. Wilson-Pestel - 17/1 off 2

2 catches from T. Knowles, A run out from C.Hunt and a catch from D.Everett. A decent total and a good chase for LMTCC to start the weekend. It was not to be however as batting woes continued with 3 wickets falling in the powerplay for 16 runs. A good reply in the middle brought the game back but LMTCC continued to lose wickets at crucial times and ended on 111/7 after the 20 overs.
