The debut game of our Eighths this season was delicately poised at the half way mark on November 22, with our team on 1/79 at the 20 over mark.
The loss of a wicket soon after drinks brought Saif Shafqat to the crease, and the trend of the game changed in a twinkle.
Saif brought up his century in not too many balls of power hitting, and became just the seventh player in our 50-year history to score a century on debut.

The Eighths is our partnership between the Moonee Valley Cricket Club and Victorian Institute of Technology. The players - most of them international students - proudly wear the Moonee Valley emblem alongside their VIT logo on their shirts.
Saif had to retire on 100 not out, in accordance with the rules of the NWMCA one-day grade, but set up a platform for the following batsmen to hit out and take the score to 4/241.
Our opponents RMIT also had a bit of a dip after the drinks break but were all out for 181.
Club President Charlie Walker attended the match, and welcomed the partnership with VIT with a view it would be a long one. VIT - welcome on board.
