The TMS team were victorious at the annual TMS v. Adams Society (the St John’s maths society) cricket match, played on 24 June 2005, winning by a comfortable 149 runs to 107 after 20 overs each.
A match report is available here. Sadly there are no photographs of this year’s match owing to the President’s inability to turn up with a functioning camera.
