Toulouse came to Mansle for the first time bringing a good mix of players. The captains when out to the middle to toss and MAnsle won the toss and decided to field first. After a good start and Mansle taking some important wickets Mansle had Toulouse 91 for 5. With our tails up and the fielding tight we came across `Brett for Toulouse and Christoph. The put on a partnership that saw them in a commanding position a few missed fielding chances helped but a good performance from Mansle saw Toulouse all out for 237 Tea was taken.
Mansle started batting but not before a middle order collapse. The captian had taken the options to try different order with the batting and Zeeshan and Andy held firm to produce what would be the finest batting from a 7th wicket stand for some time. They put on 138 runs with Zeeshan scoring 80 Runs amazing display of cricket Andy backed him up with 58.
Mansle came a few runs short of a excellent fight but cricket was the winner again. Mansle all out 211 Toulouse 237 won by 26 runs.
An improving performance by Mansle.
Well done Mansle ! kept up the good work.
