Uni Team's Dramatic Win. A Thrilling Match & An Epic Finish. (Tanvir The Finisher!)

Saturday the 13th of September Asif's Uni team played their first ever match against CECC. Asif was skipping for his team & for CECC Bernard was the man to lead.

3rd XI vs Kenton 4s - 'Say Cheese'

The final league game of the season took us to in-form Kenton and their pleasant but small ground.  When we played them in Week 9, both of us were in the bottom two and we crucially won.  The rest, as they say, is history.  Since then both sides had enjoyed excellent second halves to the season, with Kenton mirroring (- is that a real word?) our achievements which culminated in their own victory over leaders Twickenham last week.  This was not going to be an easy game against a side…

3rd XI vs Birkbeck College 3s - 'Opponents stumped ...'

Last week's crushing loss away at Osterley had all but finished our promotion hopes, but we dusted ourselves down and set about winning the last two matches to continue our impressive second half to the season.  A sense of the 'near farce' that was to follow was provided early on by Shashi, who rang me five minutes before the scheduled meet time to inform me that he had just woken up.  Not a disaster you may think, but he does live 'near Heathrow'.  The rest of us made our way to our last…

If the 4ths newly appointed guru of cricketing philosophy was right, it was not bat on ball or ball on stump that won us the match against Hornsey, but the mind game played upon the unexpecting oppo by the use of blatantly confrontational ‘silent’ sledging.  Whatever the tactic, this saw an end to a rather disappointing run and a reminder of what can be done to defend a low score, simply by staring.


Having lost the toss, the 4ths were put in to bat on an overcast wicket,…
