C.E.C.C.| Shepherds Cot | Crouch End | North London | N8 8JJ
Sorry for not reporting on the friendly match last week but Vijay got a great 60 and Connor excelled himself with both bat and ball. In fact, despite it being the usual cobbled together team I felt several players including Shashi who bowled a long spell and Kashif who found an excellent line and length did very well and but for a few more runs we may have pushed them at least to shut up shop. As it was they won with just 2 overs remaining so it was certainly not an easy result.
A different team turned out this Saturday and once again many players stepped up to the plate and performed to the best of their ability. Gamesh proved to be the man of the match with 49 which helping to set the oppo a difficult chase on what was a very poor pitch and slow ground followed by 4 wickets. At the outset the side looked light on for bowling but Jeremy, Khalid, Kashif and Gamesh took on the challenge and really impressed. The fielding was good with only one difficult chance going down and despite the strong start by the oppo when chasing the bowling attack stuck at their task and once the break though came we took 9 wickets for around 50 runs to mop them up with 9 runs to spare. The final moment of glory belonged to one of the key men at the heart of the club, Peter. A look of shock as he held a blistering shot was replaced by smiles as he was mobbed by the whole team in exuberant celebration.
