On Saturday, the 1st of June, SAC hosted St. Brice for a 40-over game.

After losing the toss & asked to field first. SAC made early inroads by getting their opening bats cheaply. Wickets at regular intervals along with sporadic counter attacks by the batting side saw them through to the Drinks break leaving the game in the balance at 100 for 4. Gurdev, Pushpendra, & Money all picking up wickets.
After Drinks, their No. 6 Bat, who plays for the French U-19 team played a controlled innings of 57 and guided St. Brice to a substantial total of 220. Money was the best Bowler for SAC with 3 wickets.

In the chase, Thodi & Shehzad gave SAC a solid opening partnership of 60 in 8 overs. After the departure of Thodi (27), Shehzad kept the Required Run rate under check as he kept hitting boundaries at will. Wickets kept falling around him when he eventually got out for a well-made (67). A brief middle-order counter-attack by Gurdev & Pushpendra proved futile as the SAC innings ended on 172. SAC losing the game by 50 runs. The highlight of the game was the last wicket partnership of 15 runs between John Hardy & Fin Andersson, with Fin remaining Not out at the end.
