  • Putting it briefly: Fez rebels are JCA Division 2 winners

    Fez Rebels are the 2014-15 Apple Coal JCA Division 2 winners after recording a convincing six-wicket victory over Mavecrics Menarians at Cibubur in the penultimate weekend of league stage action. Electing to bat first, Mavecrics were out for just 72 in 25.4 overs with Corbon Loughnan (3-06) and Kirk Rimmers (3-11) ripping through the hapless Mavecrics defense in overcast conditions at Cibubur. Miraz Mongia was the only batsman to offer some resistance with a defiant 37. In reply, the Rebels raced to the target in just 13.5 overs, finishing on 74 for four. Corbon capped a fine all-round performance with a polished unbeaten 34. Modi captured two wickets for the losers.
