Northern Lights played two T20 matches vs FinnAsia, a division 1 team, at Pansio cricket ground. FinnAsia suffered a shocking defeat in a low scoring thriller of a first game, and Northern Lights announced its arrival in the cricket circuit with a bang. However, FinnAsia came strongly in the second match to prove why they deserve to be in the first division. The first series between the partners was drawn at 1-1, and the trip concluded was a delicious BBQ lunch.
Match # 1: Northern Lights won by 2 wickets
Match # 2: FinnAsia won by nine wickets
