FPs lose out in high scoring cracker

Arul Senthil made an excellent 68 in FPs attempted chase

FPs and Bon Accord played out an enthralling game with 530 runs scored, as Bon Accord edged out FPs by just 12 runs despite setting an improbable 272 for victory. After Fazal Awan made a brilliant and faultless 109, Bons looked well on course but Arul Senthil hit an excellent 68, Fraser Proud struck 47 and Karan Anand 70 as FPs did their upmost to chase it down. The game was only settled in the 2nd last over when the well set Anand was given out LBW to Awan who also captured 3 other victims. It knocked FPs off top spot with 6 games remaining, meaning they almost certainly have to win every remaining game to have a chance of the title. Continue reading

Strathmore show Bottler to knock out FPs

FPs exited the CS Challenge Cup to Strathmore in Forfar despite a spirited effort against the Strathmore Union side. FPs may well rue not taking full advantage of having the home side in deep trouble at 10 for 3 after an early Mapplebeck burst and then dropping overseas amateur Bottler early in his innings, as he went on to make a very fine 77. With the bat, Karan Anand made 41 and Arul Senthil 38, but FPs struggled to recover from 1 for 2. Continue reading
