Geneva CC vs GESLCC and Geneva CC vs GICC, Pickwick T20 Cup, Bout-du-Monde, 10 June 2018
Geneva CC won two crucial matches in an action-packed day which saw some pretty awesome performances from many players. The first match was won by 3 wickets against a competitive GESLCC side, while the second match was more of a walk in the park as Geneva beat their International counterparts by 122 runs!
1) First match: Geneva Cricket Club 128 for 7 in 17.5 overs (Idrees 44, Ali 33, Aditya 3-20, Idrees H. 3-26) beat Geneva Sri Lanka Cricket Club 124 all out in 18.1 overs (Afif 4-27, Zahid 3-18) by 3 wickets
2) Second match: Geneva Cricket Club 268 for 5 in 20 overs (Idrees 140, Ali 39) beat Geneva International Cricket Club 146 for 9 in 20 overs (Bakir 38, Afif 3-23) by 122 runs
The openers played a pivotal role in both victories by scoring altogether 64.5% of all runs compiled by Geneva CC that day. Idrees scored a total of 184 runs, including a whopping 140-run spree (off 52 balls) against GICC! Ali piled up 33 runs off 21 against GESLCC, followed by 39 runs off 26 versus GICC. Afif took 7 wickets in the two matches at an average of 7.1 and Zahid displayed tremendous figures of 4-1-18-3 in the first match.
Three matches are still to be played in order to secure a spot in the semi-finals of the Pickwick T20 Cup and hopefully, Geneva CC will do the work, but there is still a lot of work ahead to ensure that victory can be ours.
