Mid Season March Hare Madness

  Posted on: March 23rd, 2009

Over the weekend of 7th & 8th March, 2009, The Golden Oldies, the Hollywood team (minimum age limit 40) were treated to the usual fantastic hospitality by both club and city.

Peru were too strong in the opening day 20/20 match, posting a mammoth score of 217 with Mike Soulsby scoring a century. The following day a mix and match team entered the park with Martin (Gordon) Greenidge’s XI ending up victors, thanks to a Miles Buesst century. It certainly has been a season for lots of runs.

The national Twenty20 season is now underway between four clubs: Lima Cricket and Football Club, Eigenhossen, Kiteflyers and ‘Chak De’. Eidegenossen had won the Cricket Veloz tournament in November but struggled in their first game against Chak De. The Kiteflyers defeated Lima cricket in the other game.

The second week saw the Kiteflyers once again dominate the batting after a slow start and eventually overcome a gritty effort by Eigenhossen to chase 175. Lima Cricket Club only posted 107 against the might of ‘Chak De’ and it looks like next week will be a great final between The Kiteflyers and ‘Chak De’.
