Good victory against GICC

Bout-du-Monde, 11 September 2016, 40-over friendly match

Geneva Cricket Club, 257 for 9 in 40 overs (Aamir 63, Khurram 61*, Richard 3-42), beat Geneva International Cricket Club, 234 all out in 37.2 overs (Vipin 62, Tariq 3-38), by 23 runs

One of the last match of the season took place on a bright day in Bout-Du-Monde. Geneva CC faced their fellows from GICC in a tight match, which was ultimately won by tail-ender Aamir and skipper Khurram. While the latter was suffering from a constraining lower back ache, the pair still scored a +100 runs partnership which propelled Geneva CC to victory. GICC had to reach a decent target of 258 runs to win and nearly did so if Vipin at one down was not dismissed with 62 runs in his tally. Tariq finished the match with the best bowling figure of 3 for 38, while Richard from GICC started very strongly by conceding no runs and taking two wickets in his first three overs. Congrats to Geneva CC for their good victory against GICC and kudos to GICC for putting up a hard chase.
