Madrid Stars v Levante Cricket Club Levante CC on Sun 14 May 2017 at 11:00
Levante Cricket Club Lost Levante CC 136/10 (38 overs) lost to Madrid Stars 139/2 (25 overs) by 8 wickets

Match report Beaten by a better team on the day. Yes the umpires said at tea it was swinging heaps given the cloudless day. And perhaps they should have pointed their fingers to the missing clouds while edges were being caught... but outplayed is how a neutral would describe it.

Two of the top 3 batsmen were bowled by their lanky leftie 3/24 who mixed sharp bouncers with swinging yorkers to impressive effect leaving us struggling after winning the toss at 28/3. Burchell 25 with Sandheep 39 helped the recovery but 136 all out in 38 overs was the meagre offering.

Faiz on debut showed great promise and should have had caught behind verdict early on their top scorer, Qasim tambien. Murphy 1/12 and Taylor 1/17 ensured 1 bowling point joined 2 batting points as everyone got an early road trip back from La Manga to Valencia after just 25 overs.

Young Rory should hold his head high after a solid wicket keeping debut and a nice little star next to his name: 0*
