On a warm and sunny afternoon, KGCC Captain Jack Patel won the toss and elected to bat first on what looked like a good wicket.

Despite some accurate bowling from Gahanna and Mahmoud, Knotty openers Nick Scott and Armpit Shafi put on an impressive 8- for the first wicket before Scott fell LBW.

After that Siddiq and Tang quickly ran through the middle order, and it was left to Shafi, who moved on to an excellent 100, to hold the innings together.

A late flurry from Desai and Jack Patel rescued the innings from 154-7, to finish on 223 for, which seemed like at least a par score for the 47 overs.

For Denham, Saddiq, with 3-52 and Tang, 2-26, were the main wicket takers.

In reply Denham made a steady start, but Luke Patton made an early breakthrough, trapping Butt LBW. It proved to be a false dawn for Knotty however, as Simpson and Rai set about the KG bowling, scoring 66 and 53 respectively. Along with a forceful 49 from Tang, they saw Denham reach their target of 224 for the loss of just 3 wickets and with 7 overs to spare.
