Cosmos Coined A Heated Tie

June 13th, 2008
(Celebrating 26 Anniversary)- Cosmos held their nerves and stamina under the sweltering ninety-eight degrees temperature to salvage a thrilling last ball tie against Lucas last Sunday at Floyd Bennett field and virtually save themselves from what would have been a major set back.

Leikram Latchman

A total lack of application from Cosmos batsmen left their team gasping after they raced to 47 for 1 in only six overs. Suddenly a forced cut to point, a miscued pull to mid-on, a drive to mid-off, a swipe to silly 'somewhere' and the scoreboard reads 53 for 4 off 7 overs. It was left to the inexperience Leikram Latchman and Sham Ali to repair the inning.

Latchman showed undue patience in a crucial fifth wicket partnership of 47 runs with Sham, and then another 36 runs partnership with captain Ricky Kissoon before he was out for 26. With the score on 133 for 7, Ricky and Mohan Kissoon combined for vital eight-wicket partnership of 37 runs before Cosmos innings closed on 179 all out. N. Whittaker took 3 for 28, and D. Waugh 2 for 21.

Lucas's, in reply, showed their intentions very early that they will take the challenge to the cosmos bowlers, and they did as they raced to 55 for 1 in only 7 overs. Ricky and Dominic Gomes managed to curb the flow of runs while picking up two wickets each. Cosmos fought hard to gain control of the match, which kept slipping at regular intervals. However, with the score on 179 for nine, Lucas required a dot ball or one run to win. It took the last ball of the match when Shafiq Jadavji uprooted the mid stump of E. White for Cosmos to breath some relief after a dreadful day in the field.
