The opposition made the not inconsiderable trip arriving well before the home team, who had a much shorter trip. Subsequently, Captain Andrew lost the toss and the opposition chose to bat against our 9 men. However, the skipper set a field and the bowlers by and large bowled to it, so when the missing two players arrived Valenciennes were 48-1 off twelve overs. Then wickets fell at a steady rate with the visitors finishing on 200 all out off 40 overs.
Surely a target with our batting lineup we could easily chase down?  Well, the captain's advice to build slowly meant we were 45-1 off 5 overs, then the wheels fell off; the pick of the batsmen being Trevin, Jyoty and Sachin. SAC finished with a disappointing 167 all out with 6 overs left.
