TIGERS COM­MIT CAR­DI­NAL SIN

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT - SOUTH EAST SUN­DAY CRICKET LEAGUE DIV FOUR La­hore Tigers......................................... 181 all out Slough Baylis 2nds ........................................ 182-5 Slough won by five wick­ets

LA­HORE Tigers now have to rely on re­sults else­where to have any chance of lift­ing the South East Sun­day Cricket League Divi­sion Four ti­tle.

The Che­sham side, mak­ing their de­but sea­son in the league, were knocked off the top of the ta­ble after los­ing to their clos­est ri­vals, Slough Baylis 2nds.

In a game billed as a po­ten­tial ti­tle de­cider, Tigers com­mit­ted the car­di­nal sin and did not man­age to bat through their full al­lo­ca­tion of overs.

They were bowled out for 181 in 30 overs, with 10 overs still to go, with a knock of 41 by Nabeel Ahmed their high­est score.

Tan­vir Butt then took 3-28 from his seven overs, but it proved to be in vain as Slough passed their tar­gets with five wick­ets still in hand.

Tigers are still math­e­mat­i­cally in the race but now need an­other team to beat Slough while not los­ing an­other game them­selves.
