The match pitched the club’s first team known as “the chairman’s team” against the second team, “Vice-chairman’s t team”.

The vice-chairman’s team ended the match as the better team by playing 128 runs with 8 wickets just as the prolific player, Mr. Rari Konmfi played 33 runs for the vice-chairman’s team.

However, the Vice-chairman’s team played 86 runs but lost the game with 10 wickets with their star player, Ohimai Ehifimefor, playing 15 runs.

Mr. Obidike Uche was the bowler with the highest wickets of the game (five wickets). Meanwhile, a member of the vice-chairman’s team, Mr. Tomchuckwu, was injured when the ball landed on his eyebrows giving him a small gash and a bump and temporarily halting proceedings for some minutes to enable him receive treatment.

When the gruelling match ended five hours later, the chairman of the Cricket Club of Abuja, Mr. Emeka Onyeama, expressed happiness at the honour done him by his colleagues and promised to do everything possible to take the club to another level.
