IBIZA CC vs DOLLAR CC (Edinburgh 1866) Sept 2018 -

Ibiza batted first and struggled throughout in the shorter format against accurate bowling and tight fielding from the visitors. In fact, only Tim Stacey (18), Jim Harvey(16) and Shahid Hannan (23) reached double figures and Ibiza regularly lost wickets too. They finally managed a below par 122/9 off 20 overs. Of the visitors' bowlers, Jason Syme (2/22), George Buchanan-Smith (2/22) and Adam Buchanan-Smith (2/32) stood out, while Tim Dillon, Marcus Tinsley and Simon Breasley also contributed.

Dollar then batted and appeared to be in trouble at 26/3, but all rounder Cameron Glasgow (70 not out) had other ideas and combined well with Marcus Tinsley (22), both also taking advantage of several missed catches from Ibiza. Their 99 run stand allowed the visitors to reach 125/4 and win by 6 wickets in the 19th over.

Ibiza bowler Paddy Slater did well for 2/18, supported by J. Harvey and J. Parmenter, but the dropped catches proved very costly for the hosts.
