Cork County Crusaders v Harlequins Masters

Friday, 10th June, at Farmers Cross.

Crusaders continued their winning streak winning by 21 runs in a close fought match.

Winning the toss and elected to bat, setting a target of 176 for Harlequins Masters. Andrew O Reilly (14) and Scot Jeffers (75) led the way with Peter Barlow (36) supporting and some big pinch hitting from Sachin Saxena 21 off 6 balls including 2 fours and 2 big straight sixes!

Harlequins Masters came out swinging from the start and matched the run rate but some good bowling from Brian Kelleher (0 for 8 from 2) at the start then Sachin Saxena (2 for 25 from 4) and Sam Zai (2 for 29 from 4) in the final overs.

Special mention must go to the excellent contribution by the Youth Players, Haroon Saffi and Eshan O’Sullivan for some excellent fielding and catches and to Rioghan O’Sullivan for bowling the death over for 2 runs and a wicket when Harlequins were chasing the win. ‪
