23rd June 2019: Ghausia 2 won by 61 runs, by Rhett Bridgens

Summary:

Ghausia 2, 223-8 in 40 overs (Gadoo 5-46, Venkatraman 2-24)

Hengelo 1, 162-10 in 36.1 overs (Bridgens 42, Duraisingam 34)

A very short match report purely for the fact that this game of 'cricket' should've been wiped off the face of the earth as it was anything but that. A game played in a disgraceful manner and a completely unacceptable moral standard.

Credit to the H1 boys for as always playing with honesty and integrity, especially in this case where a two-hour drive to play in 37 degree heat could’ve resulted in some losing their patience! Sometimes the two points just aren’t even worth it.

Nevertheless a quick special mention to Vikas Gadoo for an excellent 5fer, Vinny Venkatraman for a solid spell, and Prit Duraisingam for another good contribution of 34 in tough conditions! (Editor: And a special mention to player-coach Bridgens for grittily sticking around and scoring an excellent 42 under unimaginable conditions and disgraceful atmosphere in the middle)
