[Logan Cup] Eagles Crash as Tuskers Claim Title

Mashonaland Eagles proved to be the whipping boys for Matabeleland Tuskers, as Tuskers romped to the Logan Cup title with an innings-and-30-runs victory in Bulawayo this week. The win wasn't without some drama - Tuskers suffered their own batting collapse in their one innings - but the combined efforts of Terrence Duffin (104) and Glenn Querl (combined 6/70 in the match) saw the home side home.

Eagles posted 181 in their first knock, but after Tuskers reached 281 - a 100-run innings lead - they were skittled out for a woeful 70 in the second, with Sikandar Raza (29) and Nathan Waller (11) being the only batsmen to reach double figures. It's not the first such collapse for Eagles this season, either, which must surely set alarm bells ringing for what is traditionally the strongest side on the domestic circuit.

That's to take nothing away from Tuskers, though, who under coach Davy Houghton have now won the Logan Cup for two seasons straight, and did so this season with a game spare. Full scorecard below the cut.
Eagles 181 (91.5 overs; Gupo 41, Querl 3/45) & 70 (38.4 overs; Sikandar Raza 20, Jones 4/14), Tuskers 281 (82 overs; Duffin 104, Mutombodzi 5/88). Matabeleland Tuskers win by an innings and 30 runs.
