Another Wet Saturday but lots of cricket ahead

Weather again put paid to cricket on Saturday as 1s game at Cults was rained off, the 4th rained off game against Cults this season. 2s were awarded a walkover by Stonehaven which boosted their league position. There was at least some cricket on the Sunday as the 3rd XI lost by 80 runs to Mannofeild in the development league.

There is a lot of cricket planned this week with the development team in action on Tuesday against Gordonians at Rubislaw before the 7s on Wednesday as FPs take on Knightriders and Inverurie. It is then back to league business for 1s against Gordonians at Countesswells with the 2nds having a free league week. However 2s do have a big game on Sunday as they tackle Methlick in the cup semi final.

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
