Watford Badshahs Cricket Club v HWDC Junoon 1st XI on Sun 04 Aug 2019 at 13:00
Watford Badshahs Cricket Club Won by 5 wickets

Match report Junoon won the toss and decided to bat.

Junoon's skipper Waseem quickly said the word 'Bat' after winning the toss. He was still living in the shadows of the firstgame we had with them. Badshahs' skipper just before the toss took place, reassured him with raw conviction that Junoon will walk off the field as the 2nd best today.

"Although youhave forfeited the toss, i will still give you the opportunity to win something today, as you have already lost this game".

Ehtesham and Ashiq opened the bowling. Ashiq catching the batsman plum infront of the stumps on his back leg but was denied by the umpire, who later admitted that hesitation got the better of him. This did not prevent Ehtesham coming and bowling with great control. Forcing a snick, which was collected by Ashiq at 2nd slip. Junoon's captain made his way back to the dugout. Shortly after Ehtesham struck again, this time Abbas taking the catch in the first slip. Junoon were under the Kosh, and under it hard. Ehtesham and Ashiq operated as planned, bowling very tight and this time the fielding was electric. The oppositon were too afraid to throw the bat outside the off.

Sannan and Sardar wefre brought into the attack, to add further pressure to the Junoon batsmen. The visitors were ontheir backfoot. They quickly began to play in a shell, a feeling the Badshahs have experienced. As the ball reached its age of 15 overs, Jeff was introduced to the attack replacing Sannan. Whilst Sardar remained operative at the other end.

Jeff missed out on atleast 5 games, and we needed a comeback from him. He started with a bang, removing Arslan with a full toss. And then we knew Junoon was going to crumble to a mere score of 100 runs or so. Jeff accompanied with Abbas in the slips and Ashiq at silly mid on, removed 3 more batsmen. Whilst Sardar did not give the Visitors any respite either.

Jeff finished the innings of Junoon with outstanding figures of 4 for 4.

Junoon were left to defend a total of 107.

Badshahs sent in their response with Jayraj and Kaushal opening the innings, who built a great partnership of 48 runs, until Jayraj went across the line and was held at slip. Kaushal followed immediately doing just that. Jeff was sent in to finish the game. Him and Sannan were beginning to look threatening until Sannan was give LBW 2.5 metres down the track. Sardar did not really get going and played on to his own stumps.

Jeff picked up from where jayraj left, but could not see the game to the end. Abbas and Azad were then tasked to counter attack and a bring swift end to the proceedings.

Badshahs smashed Junoon CC by 5 wickets, and 10 men.

Jeff was easily the M.O.M
