It was the most anticipated game of the season, perhaps not for the competitiveness but for the festive atmosphere which builds when the club’s members and their family get together to watch two of Diasqua Little Sai Wan Sunday League Sides compete for the JKN Cup
There was no shortage of friendly banter, food and warm tea on the fine day of Nov 22nd at Mission Road. However this time there was a difference, this time we saw the most competitive game between DLSWCC’ Champion Sunday Side JKN and the Development Side Knights
JKN batted first after winning the toss and they reached 225 in 41 overs with skipper Moner Ahmed top-scoring with 94 and Ehsan Khan hitting 33. With the ball, Knight’s skipper Niaz Ali picked up 3/45 while Aftad Ahmed claimed 3/32.
In reply, the Knights were quickly reduced to 4/12 with JKN’s opening bowlers Jangzeb Khan and Karandeep Singh making two early strikes each. Niaz Ali hit 66 but he couldn’t find enough support from the lower order batsmen and their innings finished on 178.
The derby match between DLSWCC JKN and DLSWCC Knights finished with JKN winning comfortably and earning a bonus point in the process.
