10/09 v Widmer End St Margaret's (Away)

Updated: Sep 17, 2023

Result: WON by 11runs

Toss: CB elected to bat

It had been nice and sunny but the weather was about to turn. It was cloudy and overcast as the skipper once again won the toss and chose to bat. It had looked like we would only have 10 players for this game, but Uma made a late strategical recruitment move and persuaded Ravi to play. Paul and Alex were first to bat and quickly found out that scoring wasn’t going to be easy on this wicket. Alex(9) was out caught with the score on 19 followed by Paul(16) at the 34 mark. Uma(10) and Areeb(18) pushed the score up to 47 before Uma was caught on the long off boundary. Areeb followed in similar style at 57-4 bringing Gaurav and David together in a crucial partnership. A short rain break after the drinks break was followed by fairly consistent drizzle for the remainder of our innings. Gaurav(23) was out with the score just past 100 and David followed at 104 having made one what was a top scoring 27. Ravi and Ollie(17) got us to 140 and the innings finally closed on 146 with Ravi 23 not out.

The rain had by now stopped and in reply, Widmer End took an aggressive approach as they opened their innings and moved quickly towards 24 before Rudy(4-0-37-1) slowed their progress by removing one of their openers. Ravi initially got the ball moving around but as it became wetter and wetter the movement became less and less. Areeb(8-0-28-3) and Ollie(8-3-16-2) then came on to make their life a lot more difficult. At the end of their spells Widmer End were still up with the scoring rate but 6 wickets down. Gaurav(4-0-16-0) bowled without any luck and it was left to Uma(5-1-12-2) and the returning Ravi(5.2-0-18-2) to mop up the last four wickets, leaving them 11 runs short of the target.

A good tidy fielding performance with 2 catches for Gaurav and a c&b for Areeb and an excellent recruitment choice by Uma with Ravi taking 2 wickets and scoring 23 not out.

Another great enjoyable game of cricket against the guys down at Widmer End. Both sides were always in the game till the last wicket and we just managed to come out on the right side of this result.
