08/05 v Widmer End (Home)

Result: Lost by 5 wickets

Toss: CB elected to bat

Having won the toss and electing to bat, the Chesham Bois top order once again struggled to get to terms with the slightly unpredictable nature of the newly laid square. Dhruv got one that kept very low and was unlucky to be bowled after edging it onto his pads, Gaurav edged one that looped up from a similar spot and Uma thick edged a cut shot to point. 11 for 3 was not the ideal start but Paul (18) was cautiously defending one end of the wicket while David (15) mixed aggression with defence to nudge the score along. Ravi blew the rust off his bat with a nicely crafted 14 whilst Ali (10) needed a much longer bat to make his ground when coming back for a second run. When Sajid was out we were 8 down for 91 and 100 seemed like a good score. Cameron (31) and Vish (18) had other ideas and finally lifted our total to 137 which gave us something to defend.

We were a little light on our options in the bowling department, made worse as Cameron’s effort with the bat restricted him to just one over (1-0-1-0). Vish (6-0-39-2) and Sajid (8-2-28-1) opened the attack with Vish once again keeping up his wicket taking form but one of their openers proved difficult to displace whilst chipping away at the total required. Uma (8-2-30-1) and Gaurav (6-0-27-1) bowled well in their spells with Dhruv (1-0-6-0) getting just one over in at the end. We managed to take 5 of their wickets in total so we were a little short at the end.

On the plus side, we did have teas for the first time in a couple of years, and we did get to try out the new bar for the first time and Widmer End were, as usual, great guests to have.
