Saqib Mahmood takes five wickets but North beaten
Lancashire bowler stars, but North defeated
Saqib Mahmood took five wickets and Alex Davies hit 36 opening the batting for the North but it was the South that came out on top in the first fixture in Barbados.
The South posted 348 with Middlesex batsman Nick Gubbins hitting a century and the North were bowled out for 284.
Mahmood had the consolation of claiming career best List A figures of five for 60.
They slightly disguised a spectacular second spell of five for 16, as the South lost their last six wickets for 32 – and all five of Saqib’s victims were clean bowled.
“We started getting a bit of lateral movement, and I thought it was best to bowl straight and full, and take the pitch out of the equation,” Mahmood said.
“But you have to give credit to the way they batted early on. There was one ball I bowled to Gubbo which I thought was pretty much spot on, and he hit it for six.”
