Zagreb Finish Runners-Up in Slovenian League

Zagreb Cricket Club have once again finished runners-up in their second season in the Slovenian 40 Over League. After winning a close semi-final against Bela Krajina, Zagreb met surprise finalists Žabarji in the final in Ljubljana. After losing the toss Zagreb were sent into bat and despite a slow start managed to keep wickets in hand for an assault towards the later end of the innings. Runs for Chris Osborne, Paul Musin and Peter Armaan meant Zagreb scored a respectable 185 at the end of their allotted overs. Žabarji begin their chase on the back foot by losing a couple of early wickets, but a solid partnership by Matthew Charlesworth and Mark Oman kept the hosts well in the game going into the last 10 overs. When just over a run a ball was needed, Žabarji's big-hitting lower order came to the party and when 2 runs was needed off the last ball for victory it was Sohail Babar who stepped up to hit a big six over cow corner to give Žabarji the win.
