SERIE A: Si inizia con una vittoria a Pianoro!
L'esordiente Ahmed Anik con i suoi 44 runs e due wicket guida il Roma Capannelle alla vittoria nella prima gara di Serie in trasferta contro il Pianoro. 157 - 158/7
Anik Ahmed starred with bat and ball as Roma Capannelle made a winning start to their 2018 Serie A campaign away to Pianoro. The all-rounder struck a match-winning 44 as Roma Capannelle chased down a target of 158, having earlier prized two wickets. Pianoro won the toss and opted to bat first on an uneven surface but were put under pressure early with three quick wickets falling to Munasanghe (2-25) and Morettini (1-30). From 16-3, the home side recovered thanks to number four Mollik Anam fine knock of 79. But a 67-run partnership with Manpreet Singh was brought to an end by a calamitous run-out, with Kevin Kekulawala producing a neat piece of fielding to remove Italian international Singh for 23. Mollik continued to frustrate Romaís attack by occupying one end, however his partners struggled to support him and the hosts fell to 120/8, with wickets for Ahmed (2-29), Hanwellage (2-23) and Kirby (1-35). Decent performance in the field with two very good catches by Ahmer Ghulam. A late flurry of runs helped Pianoro up to a respectable total before two wickets fell in the space of two runs to bring the innings to an end on 157. Roma Capannelle made an encouraging start to their chase but lost openers Kirby (13) and Chowdhury (12) and number three Jayarajah in the first ten overs to fall to 41-3. Munasinghe and Ghulam (who played well several overs of spin) followed suit shortly after to leave the visitors in trouble at 79/6 from 30.1 overs. However, number five Kevin Kekulawala (32) steadied the innings and Ahmedís arrival turned the match on its head. The number seven smashed five boundaries and a six in a knock of 44, falling with Roma just 14 runs short of the target. Lalinda Henwellage kept his composure to see Roma over the winning line with an unbeaten 22. Roma play their first home game of the season this Sunday, with the visit of Janjur Brescia to the Roma Capannelle Cricket Ground. (Match Report by Edward White)
