Zagreb Hosts Successful Tri-Series with Ljubljana and Milan

Zagreb Hosts Successful Tri-Series with Ljubljana and Milan Zagreb Cricket Club hosted a T20 tri-series between Milan CC, Ljubljana CC and Zagreb in early October. The first match saw the hosts play Ljubljana in bright sunshine. After winning the toss and batting, Zagreb managed to out on 165 in their allotted 20 overs. After taking a few early Ljubljana wickets, Zagreb looked like they would put the visitors under some pressure but a big middle-order partnership put paid to any hopes of victory. Ljubljana comfortably ran out the winners, leaving Zagreb with a big task in the next match of the day against Milan. This time Zagreb were fielding first and again early wickets gave them a false sense of hope as Milan's middle order started to pile on the runs. Some superb batting from the Italian side saw them finish their 20 overs with a massive 208 runs on the board. Zagreb started the chase strongly and were well on target bringing up the 100 in the 10th over. Peter Aarman was in fine form for the hosts smashing the ball out of the ground on regular occurance. When he fell just short of his 100 victory started to slip away from Zagreb. With light diminishing Zagreb required 12 off the final over and fell 5 runs short. After a sunny first day the weather Gods turned and rain would play a major part on the second day, washing out the third match between Ljubljana and Milan to leave those two side joint winners of the trophy. The tri-series will become a regular fixture in the calendar for the three teams and we look forward to 2017 in Milan. Thanks also must go to sponsors Tag Heuer.
