CRICKET FRIENDLY GAME -RSUC & JOHOR VETERANS
On 10/10 RSUC was invited by Johor Veterans for a friendly game at the Johor Cricket Academy ground situated at Skudai. Carpooling and a leisure drive early in the morning took us about three hours to reach our destiny. The 25 overs game started at 1040 hrs. RSUC won the toss and elected to bat. Surprisingly their bowlers were short of depth and our batsmen found the going easy. Kuven, Desmond, and captain Thava scored a breezy 30 runs each and had to retire not out. At the end of the 25 overs, RSUC scored 194 runs.
It is obvious Johor Veterans had a depleted side as only one of their players Dr. Faidz, gave us some resistance and had to come back after retiring not out at 30, to finish the inning at 56 not out. Johor's total score was 143.
The pick of our bowler was Ashih whose 3 wickets earned him the Man of the Match.
Our next itinerary will be to RSC on 7/11 when they host us to a friendly. The score so far is 3 nil in their favor and we hope to win this encounter, this time.
