WEST BEATEN BY 80 RUNS

By

M.O.M. Zia dominates for Uddingston as West short with bat.

West who were looking to build on their match winning position last week at home to Clydesdale where rain intervened on that occasion however this week ran into a storm in the shape of Sameer Zia. Zia scored 97 and 2/39 to dictate matters at Hamilton Crescent.


West Captain John Blain won the toss and asked Uddingston to Bat. West got off to a flying start having Amir Gul caught in the first over at mid wicket off the bowling of Gavin Smith with only one run on the board. West bowlers battled to settle into a rhythm as Sameer Zia and Gowtham Rai steadied the Uddy ship running well between the wickets and punishing any wayward deliveries with a second wicket partnership of 53 before Roy was caught at square leg for 24 off the bowling of Blain.


Uddingston NZ professional Matt McEwan, joined Zia at the crease and set about the West attack. He hit two fours and three sixes off spinner Richard Cox and a rapid 36 before being run out at the non-strikers end off the boot of David McNulty.


Blain struck first ball to remove Gavin Bradley lbw. Unfortunately West never managed to capitalise on their momentum and a missed stumping chance of Zia off the spin bowling of new recruit Jonathan Newell which would prove to be costly. Uddy lower order supported Zia In his quest for a century however he was finally caught in the final over for 97 of the bowling on Gavin Smith as Uddy closed on 211 for 9.


In reply West innings struggled to find momentum losing both openers inside the first 10 overs to the bowling of young seamer Dennis Eyles leaving West 29/2. Lucas Farndale was bowled by a full delivery then Stuart Murray fell to a delivery that bounced and was sharply caught at slip by Matt McEwen from a deflection off Uddingston Capt and wicket keeper Bryan Clarke.
A 4th wicket partnership between Blain and Newell took the score to over 100 before both batsmen fell to the bowling of Scott McKenzie (2/24). Zia capped an all round display as he took 2-39 from 12 overs as both him and McKenzie tightened Uddingstons grip on the game leaving West reeling at 104-5 in the 30th over on an excellent batting surface. Some late, lusty blows from David McNulty and Gurjit Sandhu were in vain as Amir Gul and Davy Bill with two wickets apiece to leave Uddingston victors by 80 runs.
