First class cricket at Cartama


CRICKET IS slowing making a renaissance on the Costa del Sol, following the recent Telegraph tournament at Malaga’s Cartama Oval.

The Rock XI Gibraltar CC was crowned champion, seeing off competition from Wandsworth Cowboys Cricket Club and the Costa del Sol Crusaders.

The tournament kicked off with a match between Wandsworth CCC and the Crusaders, with the former scoring 106-3. Despite the best efforts of batsmen Paul Gibbs, Antonio Magro, Brian Barret and Nasir Dar, the Crusaders were ultimately victorious, beating Wandsworth by four wickets. Man of the match was Brian Barrett with a total score of 20.

The Crusaders’ winning streak was not to last, however, after they lost by five wickets to Rock XI Gibraltar CC. The Costa del Sol Crusaders scored 116-7, with Lee Rickwood, Andrew Ward, Morgan Peters and Avinash Balaji Pai batting, the last of whom was named man of the match.

The Rock’s win led them to a further victory, this time playing Wandsworth CCC, and beating them by nine wickets. The Wansdworth Cowboy’s Morgan Peters was named man of the match after scoring 5-5. Special praise was reserved for the team’s Antonio Magro, however, who won man of the tournament.
