Overview

Both the Strikers and the Commanders were in action on Friday in the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Capricorn Commanders suffered a defeat at the hands of Leo Lions in the first match by 26 runs, thanks to an all-round performance from Johan Botha, scoring 42 runs down the order and picking up a wicket as well.

Except the two openers Ashwell Prince, Andrew Symonds and skipper Paul Coolingwood, no batsmen was able to enter double digits. The poor batting lineup needs to improve if they are looking for a victory in the second fixture against the Strikers.
