RSUC Cricket Section had entered the League with high hopes of doing well. We were short of our target as we went down fighting to the two seeded teams which had current and past players playing for the Country. We lost both to Mugwala and The Malaysian Navy with a few balls to spare in the last over. We met Gadong Rebels in the Plate Finals on 19/10/19 @ the KGV field. We batted first and piled the runs and at the end of the 20th over we had put up a mammoth score of 196 runs for the lost of two wickets. Opening batsman, Harinder made 104 runs ably supported by Kuven and Fendi.
Gadong Rebels went in to bat after the breather knowing too well that they have a high target to achieve. Their chase went well as some wayward bowling and a drop catch, presented them with the window of opportunity. Luckily Kuven and Thava collected themselvrs back and two quick wickets by both momentarily checked Gadong Rebels progress. But they continued to be defiant and for a while, they look dangerous as their score reached the century mark. It was time to put a check to their progress and Captain Thava brought Mohidin into the fray. His introduction immediately brought the desired results as two quick wickets fell and whatever fight was left finally fizzled out.
RSUC 196 runs for the lost of 2 wickets.
Gadong Rebels 141 runs for the lost of 8 wickets.
RSUC won the Plate Finals by 55 runs.
Kudos to the team who kept their composure and played with true team spirits.
