Words from Jalpesh Vijay

From the Middlesex County League Weekly Update from Week 17....history maker!

Division Three

Brentham CC are back in Division Two as a 5 wicket success at North London CC earned them the points they needed. Leg spinner Pravin Jadhav (4-14) starred with the ball as North London found themselves 54-9. Their eventual total of 114 was down to a last wicket stand of 60 by Bill Ward (44) and Ted Greally (12).

However the champagne was on…

Maiden 50 for Yr 9 Rory Butler

Skipper Mark Sandler writes:

For the second time this year, we lined up against a brand new cricket team. Plastics only formed this year. This is a really great sign that cricket is alive and thriving.
CECC won the toss, and elected to bat. Even though Ravi couldn’t open with Neil as he injured himself on Saturday, we had the…

Mad Dog 4s vs Uxbridge 4s

After years of hearing complaints of Andrew always putting us into bat first (get well soon, Sir), the plan so far this season has been to give us something to aim for and, now the timed game is here, the option of a winning draw, or simply the joy of watching the oppo let a victory slip away.  So imagine my surprise when I won the toss and took to the field only for a group of grown men (and FB) to start moaning about the heat of the day, muttering Mad Dogs and Englishmen under their…

Sunday XI vs Grimsdyke

Quite a strange end to the season for the Sunday XI.  A regular fixture against Grymsdyke has been a good choice in levelling the playing field in a friendly.  However, what should have been a fairly tight affair turned into a rout, and for the first time in my underwhelming experience as captain, one in our favour.

After losing the toss and being put into bat, we lost 3 cheap wickets and looked like we’d be in for an early tea, but in came Waqas and settled down to bat.  I adopted…

3rds vs. Hampstead 4ths - Promotion is Washed Away

After last week’s loss we knew that a winning draw was the minimum requirement against champions Hampstead.  This would only do if our two other rivals lost, so a win was the ideal scenario.  Of course we had beaten Hampstead already earlier this season in an epic game and this made me think that they would not see our match as a ‘dead rubber’.  They would not want to lose to us again after all.  I was right …


The toss was won and Hampstead were asked to bat.  They showed…

3rds vs. Indian Gymkana 4ths - The Future is Bright

Last Saturday was a watershed moment.  It represented the first time that one of the youngsters from our fledgling Colts system played in a 3rd team League match.  Others have played in the 4th team during this year and last, but this shows the progress that we are making in this area as a club.  Not only that but the Colt in question, 14 year old Rory Butler, impressed both his team mates and opponents with his performance.


This milestone for the club was set against the…

3rds vs. Richmond 5ths - Dark and Stormy

This season has seen us play some excellent and enjoyable games of cricket.  Frankly, last Saturday was not one of them.  The conditions were not conducive to playing cricket - regular showers stopping the match, it was cold, it was gloomy for much of the time and an unrelenting wind buffeted the players all day.  Add to this that Richmond’s second ground is sandwiched between Heathrow Airport and the M4, which made it feel even more desolate and isolated given the conditions.  The smell of…

3rds vs. Finchley 4ths - The Art of Remaining Focused

Last Saturday’s excellent victory at Osterley put us right on their coat tails in the second promotion spot.  Therefore it was important that we did not slip up against lowly Finchley.  We had beaten them easily in the first match but this was to prove a much sterner test … they won the toss and we were asked to bat first on a hard dry pitch.


Things did not start well as their experienced left-armer accounted for Keith first and then Jon to put us on 22-2.  This brought…

Phil Nagler writes....4ths v Hornsey 5 6th August 2016


After a couple of good victories, the 4ths were in confident mood going into their home clash with local rivals Hornsey.

We had a good side on paper...sadly the game is played on grass and we were shot out for 84...mentions must go to Simon who batted heroically/stoically/painstakingly/grimly for his 19 and Shiva who looked in good nick before holing out for 18...Robin and KC bowled well for the oppo but no one cares…

3rds vs. Osterley 4ths - Time to Dream?

As our good unbeaten run has progressed and turned in to a genuine back-to-back promotion push, one fixture has loomed on the horizon – Osterley away.  They are traditionally strong and we have traditionally struggled against them, including losing a tight game earlier this season.  With just a few weeks remaining, Saturday’s showdown with them was a pivotal moment and one that defines how the rest of our season progresses.


After a couple of late movements between the XIs we…
