St. Ninian’s triumph in Western Cup

St. Ninian’s 144 for 5 (20.0 overs) F Jawad 65, H Mahmood 2-16
Titwood 96/7 (20.0 Overs) D Forsyth 31, R Patterson 2-7, T Fleet 2-29

Prestwick extracted a degree of revenge over Clydesdale for their loss in the Rowan Cup last week when the respective second XIs fought out a rather one-sided final at Titwood. Batting first St. Ninian’s amassed a fine 144 for the loss of five wickets from their twenty overs. Fazal Jawad was the pick of the batters with an accomplished 65, supported by Ross Patterson and Bartsch with 24 and 24 not out respectively. Hamid Mahmood with 2 for 16 from his four overs being the pick of the bowlers.

In reply Titwood were always behind the 8-ball in their chase and despite a valiant 31 from David Forsyth, the tidy bowling of St. Ninian’s left them well adrift on 96 for 7 at the completion. Ross Patterson was the pick of the bowlers with 2 for 7 from his three overs.
