King of the swingers goes ape at Harlaw

_dsc5864_lzn_26548823784_oThe FP’s batting helmets should have been light blue this week  as it was a United Nations of a 3rd XI chosen to play Stonehaven 2nd XI at Harlaw, with seven nations  represented, namely Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and a Malteser. The line up was Ian Johnston, Gary Stuart, Aly Macdonald, Matt Carson, Roland Knudson, Faraj Monnapillai, Vineet Khandari, Vinod Karmilla, Agha Haider, Rafeek Risan and Jerry Moir. _dsc6072_lzn_27123446076_o

Hameed hit a maiden 50 at number 10

Hameed hit a maiden 50 at number 10

and then 123 for 8 as Mapplebeck at 8 and Hameed at 10 added an unbroken 106 for the 9th wicket. It was Hameeds first ever 50 and one of the more brutal that you are likely to see.  Hameed also got in on the act with the ball taking 2 for 37 and importantly dismissing Cults key batsman Fahad for 44.
