Levante Cricket Club Lost

Match report Sporting Alfas gained the six points, and more, required to retain the ECCL Premier League Championship at Valencia last weekend.

Batting first the team from Albir were made to work hard by a spirited Levante side, still looking for that elusive first win in the top league after being promoted last year.

Opener Pennick went early to a sharp caught and bowled effort from Qasim, but then Shazad and Munoz consolidated the innings before the former was again dismissed off a sharp caught and bowled,in this instance by Nunges.

When Munoz was needlessly run out going for an impossible second run the normally reliable Alfas middle order began to stutter a little and leak wickets at regular intervals. The saving grace was a fine 75 from Adam Algar who made the most of a second life after being dropped when on one. The visitors finally ended on 211 for 9, giving the home side reasonable hope of victory at the half way point.

Levante started well with Eaton and Little seeing off the new ball but then Little was caught at long off by a smart catch by Roper when the score was on 40. Hunt went quickly, bowled through the gate by Keiran Perman and then Eaton and Burchell both lost their wickets before Levante had made three figures.

Faizal continued to apply his trade towards the Levante cause but finally ran out of partners with his personal score on 41. Levante ended 191 all out just 20 runs away from the Alfas score. Alfas celebrated another successful league campaign and confirmation they would be representing the ECCL once again in the National Finals later this year.
