After day 11 of the “Fancode European Cricket Series” was a complete wash out, the ground staff worked hard through the night and early hours of the morning to ensure that play continued as scheduled on day 12.
Their hard work rewarded us with the most awesome of days, a record breaking day that will go down in history as one of the most amazing days in European Cricket.
Bengalí s Omar Ali, Gracica’s Kuldeep Lal, Men in Blue,’s Shankar Kaligatla and Catalunya Tigers Mustansar Iqbal all scored 50’s on this amazing day where 1059 runs were scored.
But the day belonged to the Tigers, Yasir Ali and Gracia’ s Gurwinder Bajwa as once more during the Fancode ECS, two men scored centuries in one day. First up, Match 59, Gurwinder scored his 2nd ton of the series, after scoring 101 not out in match 25, this time against Fateh CC he wasn’t just content with 100, he went on to go past 150, finishing unbeaten on 156 of just 45 balls including 17 massive 6’s. In doing so, he set a new European Cricket record for the highest ever individual score in ECS or ECL history. It was amazing!!!
Yasir Ali then showed his class smashing 116 of 33 balls, and while doing so set another new record, one that X1 Stars bowler will not want to be remembered for, Ali Ahmed’s 1 over being hit for 39, Yasir breaking the previous recored and doing in style hitting 4 with a cheeky scoop shot!!
Catalunya’s Razaqat Ali made sure it wasn’t just 2 batsman going into the Hall of Fame today, he took 5 for 7 of his 2 overs against the X1 Stars earning him that right.
What a day, European Cricket streamed live around the world making players dreams come true.
