Published on 13 Dec 2019
The Central Stags have beaten the Knights in the opening Dream11 Super Smash match at McLean Park by 120 runs.
The Central Stags got off to a fast start after winning the toss and choosing to bat, with George Worker and Dane Cleaver bringing up a 50 partnership inside five overs, before debutant Matt Fisher bowled George Worker for 42 with the score at 70.
An Ish Sodhi double-strike looked to have halted the momentum a touch with the scores at 103/3 in the 11th, but Tom Bruce and Kieran Noema-Barnett had added 75 in 35 balls when Anton Devcich dismissed the former for 38.
A further 43 runs were added in 23 balls as the Central Stags posted 221/5.
It was always going to be a tough chase and with wickets falling at regular intervals, the chase became even tougher.
Anton Devcich top-scored for the Knights with 35 as they were dismissed for 101, giving the Central Stags victory by 120 runs.
