CCC vs Thoiry - 22nd June 2008

Stormy weather was forecast for our local derby match against Thoiry (can you call it a derby if it’s the first time you’ve played them?). In the end, the outcome was a lot brighter for all, especially for CCC.

Chantilly won the toss and decided to bat – something that would have been laughably rash just a year ago, when we seriously doubted our ability to bat for more than an hour or so. How times change…

 
Nick “the rock” Sansbury opened with Nick-the-fix and things progressed very steadily – an opening partnership of 31. Nick Sansbury went on to score an excellent 30 and was the 4th wicket to go down, interestingly only seconds after acquiring his nickname. Rob Oakley was out cheaply LBW – but I have it on good advice that the fielder at long leg said it was plumb from where he was standing (just kidding Roy). Nick Clarke, recovering from an early-season dry patch enjoyed a fine 26, cleverly guiding his final shot into the slip fielder’s hands.

It wasn’t clear however, whether Michael Kerkoven (stepping in at the last minute for Simon “fingers” Hedley) enjoyed his first CCC innings quite as much, though. Have another go Michael, it can only get better! Denzil, late in the innings, confounded the bowlers with a very useful 27, but in reality everyone chipped in – not a duck in sight.

CCC batted out the 35 overs scoring 134.

So, a reasonable performance, but did we have enough runs? Probably not, we thought as tea was summoned.
(Incidentally, statistics show that the Nick-contingent only scored 59% of CCC’s runs this week, as opposed to 62% in the last game – is this the start of a slide?)

Nick-the-fix’s teas went down extremely well, not only for the novel cucumber and peanut butter sandwiches, but also for the chocolate cake, which once on the fingers was very hard to remove. The chocolate cake probably accounted for more than one of the catches during the Thoiry innings but also ensured that scorer-Sue’s pencil never dropped to the ground even during the most exciting periods of play.

So Thoiry came in to bat. To cut to the chase, Chantilly bowled and fielded superbly keeping runs down and taking wickets on a regular basis, such that none of the opposition, with the exception of J. Cornally (31), actually got comfortable at the crease.

As mentioned before, it was a day when catches tended to stick, with 6 Thoiry wickets going in that fashion. Well done to Nick J. for concentration on the ball in taking the catch of the match, sadly at the expense of his legs that got left behind.

Figures of the day: Nick Shepherd 4 for 14 off 7 overs. But Patrick Clarke and Tris Congreve also vitally kept the runs down with 21 and 16 runs respectively off their 7 overs.
Nick Clarke finished with 3 wickets including 2 vital ones at the end. He was probably lucky to have the chance though, as his captain had temporarily forgotten that he had 5 overs left to bowl!
Special mention to Charlie H. for his spell of bowling (2 for 23 off 4) and for keeping cool when those around him were starting to wonder how it would all end...
Nick Clarke took the 11th and final wicket and the visitors were all out for 121 – Chantilly winning by 13 runs.

Thank you as well to the umpires Geoff and Roy, who other than a problem with slightly twitchy fingers, did us proud. (Nothing that a little chocolate cake couldn’t put right, anyway).

In the end, a thoroughly enjoyable game - congratulations to all for an excellent win.

PS If anyone took any photos of the day's entertainment please let me have them
