Tayside Group Forfarshire lost a rain affected match at Grange Loan on Saturday (12th August) in what became a thrilling run chase after a revised target of 182 from 32 overs was set by Duckworth Lewis. Back at Mackays Forthill, Forfarshire 2nd XI overcame Perth Doo’cot by 39 runs.

Choosing to bowl first, Scott sent Simpson’s middle stump flying in the third over before Forfarshire were handed the bonus wicket of Watts (36 from 59 balls) who attempted a quick single to Umair but was sent back by Herdman and left short of his ground. Pillai fell LBW to Umair then Beattie pulled a short ball from Andy to Christian who took a confident catch at deep square leg to leave Carlton 99 for 4 after 25 overs of their allocated 45. Scott troubled Herdman on a number of occasions but never found the edge he deserved, and eventually fell LBW to Umair for 53 from 76 balls. Shah hit 42 from 35 balls and Boyd 37 not out from 40 balls to bring the Carlton innings to life and see Carlton up to 217 for 8.

Forfarshire reached 26 for 1 after 6 overs when rain stopped play and a revised target of 182 from 32 overs was set. Rory (50 from 66 balls) and Callum (44 from 65 balls) added 64 for the third wicket when Callum was runout trying to keep up with the challenging run rate. Greaves (21 from 16 balls) and Rory took 26 from two Herdman overs to keep Forfs in with a chance however 26 were needed from the last two overs and with Gossain conceding just 8 from his over and Evans returning to bowl the last, Forfarshire fell 10 runs short of victory.

At Mackays Forthill, Forfarshire 2nd XI batted first with Will (53) and Howie (52) taking the score past 100 before both fell to McCreanor. Two further wickets for the same bowler and one for Saraal accounted for the middle order and Forfarshire 2nd XI were in danger of folding at 155 for 6. Midge, Glen and Gavin combined to ease the total past 200 but the innings concluded on 205 in the 42 over.

Samir picked up an early wicket when Ali edged behind before Taylor (50) and Ferguson (22) settled in for the run chase. Will held a return catch from Ferguson and followed that by bowling Knoesen to bring the home side back into the game with Perth on 66 for 3 after 14 overs. Blackie and Howie then shared six wickets between them to account for the tail and bring about a 39 run victory.

 3rd XIFreuchie XI Abandoned
 Caley HighlandersWestern Warriors CANCELLED
Forfarshire 3rd XI won an exciting Two Counties Cup match against Glenrothes XI at Gilvenbank Park on Thursday night (25th May).

Batting first, a quick 26 from Midge at the top of the order saw Forfarshire reach 41 for 2 after six overs when he was unfortunate to be bowled off his pads. A further three quick wickets left Forfarshire struggling at 47 for 5 however Clark (27) and Andy (17) recovered the situation with a 50-run partnership that took the final total to 121 for 7.

Glenrothes opener Khan took no time to signal his intentions, launching Kailas for a four and a six in the first over. Andy was given similar aggressive treatment that left Forfarshire reeling as the home 50 came up in the fifth over. Rojo removed the dangerman, bowled for 46 in the eighth over, but still Glenrothes looked in little difficulty at 80 for 1 in the 11th over. A stumping by Midge off Rojo came in the 12th over then a double wicket maiden from Ted changed the mood in the middle and Forfarshire sensed the game was back on.

Blair claimed the big wicket of opener Dodds for 33 and along with a well effected run out by Morgan to Midge, Glenrothes slumped to 101 for 7. Two wickets in two balls by Andy all but wrapped up the game in the 19th over before Blair claimed the last wicket in the 20th over to see Forfarshire win by 17 runs.
