A Progressive Cosmos Encounter

The anticipation of an exciting finish between Cosmos and Progressive disappeared once Cosmos captain Dixeth Palmer took his mark at the crease and blazed his way to an exciting 79 to lead his team to a most convincing victory at Floyd Benett Field last Sunday.

A fighting Progressive 173 for 6 off 40 overs centered around a good opening partnership of 53 between K. George and K. Sylvester, but once Sham Ali removed the aggressive Kester Sylvester for 33, the pressure proved too much for the other batsmen. Cosmos bowled their way into a good position reducing progressive to 143 for 5 in the 37th over and a last over slug yield 16 runs, only D. Bennett showed some resistance for a well played 55. Vinord, David and Dennis were on target picking up a wicket each in their eight overs.

Cosmos began their inning cautiously loosing two quick wickets for 19. Dennis Evans and Dixeth Palmer took the attack to the opposition, which yield a match winning partnership of 133. Palmer stroked eight fours and four sixes for his 79 and Evans remained unbeaten on 68 with Livingston Puckering on 10 when cosmos inning closed on 174 for 3 in the 28th over. Cosmos managers Lloyd Scott and Shadi Khan expressed their admiration, that winning becomes secondary when compared to the high level of sportsmanship displayed by two teams.
