Scintilla CC started the new National Cricket League season in traditional style as the newly promoted Barking & Dagenham outfit made light work of Friends CC in the first game of the new season.

Friends CC batted first with Muntasir scoring 43 to help his team reach 210/10 from 37.2 overs.

After tea Ashfaqur Rahaman Nobel plundered 114 not out as Ayaz Karim’s outfit reached 211/7 from 30.2 overs. There were notable contributions from Ashraful Islam, 37, and Aminul Islam Shihan, 23 as Scintilla comfortably ran out winners by 3 wickets.

Pick of the Scintilla bowlers was Junaid Tanin with 3 wickets and he was backed up by man of the match Nobel, Karim, Sajal Rahman, Zisan Abedin, Shaha Riadh and Din Islam who all took a wicket each.

Scintilla skipper Ayaz Karim was pleased with the start: “We have started training early and the boys looked good today. I am confident in the team and with plenty of game time the boys will become sharper and match fit. If the dedication and commitment matches our undoubted talent I see a successful season ahead for us.”
