Entering the action at the Smith Road Oval with his team in trouble at 5 wickets down for 67 runs, Kevon Bazil blasted his way to a well played 49 runs failing just short of deserving half century.
Best XI struggled on a two paced pitch losing wickets at regular intervals until Bazil and David Ross provided the rescue act.
Best XI recovered to a respectable total of 171 runs. Bowling for Irving XI both Troy Taylor and Matthew Rose picked up 2 wickets.
The pace and spin combination of Kervin Ebanks 3 wickets for 15 runs and Alessandro Morris 3 wickets for 14 runs proved destructive and Irving X1 never got near.
Only Omar Willis 29 runs and Troy Taylor 28 runs were able to make a significant score. Best XI won by 57 runs. Matches continue throughout October on Sundays.
