SAC vs. Nantes CC on Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th

In the senior fixture on Saturday afternoon, SAC batted first and made an impressive 330 for 2 off our 35 overs thanks to 84 from Thodi Anderson and 120 not out from the returning Jon Riches. In reply, Nantes CC was bowled out for just 60 with Said Azam Sadad taking 5-13.
Despite the overcast skies and frequent rain, one of the highlights of the SAC Junior Cricket season came this weekend. In the damp conditions, the colts from Nantes proved much too strong for both SAC and LFP Morangis CC, sides on Saturday and Sunday.
