Levante Cricket Club Levante CC v Triskel Taverners on Sun 21 Apr 2013 at 12:00
Levante Cricket Club Won LCC win by 45 runs

Match report The second day of the double header started the same as the previous day as Levante were invited to bat by the Taverners. Having changed all but two of the team from the previous day, Levante opened with Tivey and Ogilvie. Things didn't go to plan though, as Tivey was plumb lbw for 0 and soon after Eaton joined him, bowled for 0. Fitzgerald the destroyer with some accurate swing bowling. Captain Noon came to the crease with the team 0-2 but he and Ogilvie slowly got LCC back on track. Ogilvie was unlucky though as he got one that kept low and at 25-3 Levante were in big trouble. In came Burchell to join the captain and they set about building a total with patience and confidence. The partnership reached 75 as they brought up the hundred before Burchell was stumped when trying to pick up the pace for 38. Noon then went on the attack and soon after hitting consecutive sixes he brought up his 50 before retiring.

Amazingly, the team again finished with 147 runs on the board.

A quick turnaround after drinks and the Taverners openers made their way to the crease. Hamza took a wicket with his first ball, Tickel took a beauty that spun a mile and Adam got a deserved wicket after a fine opening spell. But the Taverners had reached 50 in the 8th over and were welcoming in John the danger man. However this time he was sent back to the pavilion for a duck after a great catch from Tivey off the bowling of Burchell. Three more ducks followed as Tivey and Noon took wickets to finish off a spirited display from the visitors.

LCC showed great squad depth with two great performances with two almost completely different sides. They go into the league on Saturday on the back of three straight wins and feel confident ahead of their trip to Alfas.

Levante CC wishes to take this opportunity to thank the visiting Taverners for a great weekend of cricket and for two games played in fantastic spirit. We wish them well for the future and hope they come back to Valencia soon.

The weekend was rounded off perfectly with paella and beers before the Taverners made the long journey back to Madrid.
