Bons too strong for Academy CC as they lift the Oxy Cup (sponsored by Hyphen Orbits)

Bon Accord have lifted the Oxy Cup (sponsored by Hyphen Orbits) in a one sided final against Academy CC played at Mannofield.

Bons won the toss and had no hesitation to bat first. Bons made a great start with openers Andy Win & Nawaz Mirza putting on a 50 partnership. Nawaz retiring on 30. This was followed with some late hitting from M. Fyffe also retiring on 31, the Bons posted a daunting total of 162 for 8 of 20 overs. Pick of the bowlers for Academy CC were S. Valentine (2 for 24) and Ali (2 for 20).

In reply, Academy CC made a steady start with Prakash the main aggressor, but, he was helpless at the non strikers end, as he watched N. Mirza in his 2nd over produce a magical spell of bowling to take a hat trick (all bowled) and demolish Academy's top order in the space of 3 balls! Academy did limp over the 100 runs mark, finishing on 112 all out. Prakash the only mainstay with a very sensible 31 retired. For the Bons bowlers N. Mirza (3 for 26), J. Bhalani (2 for 13) and M. Fyffe (2 for 32)

The Oxy Cup was presented to Shiraz Hussain, the Bon Accord captain. MOTM was N. Mirza for his 30 retired with the bat and 3 for 26 with the ball. A special thank you to Tariq Butt for umpiring the final and taking the photo's at the presentation ceremony. Photos will be posted on the site shortly.

And special mention to Graeme Johnston for allowing us to play the Oxy Cup Final at Mannofield.
