Saturday 28th August was the opportunity for Chantilly to make amends for the previous game against the Embassy back in May when they were soundly thrashed.

With the normal captain and vice-captain out, it fell to Denzil Homer to take over the helm for the first time. After losing the toss (not an impressive start...), the rest of the team waited with apprehension to find out where they would be placed. His first decision: "I'll take those gloves, thank you very much - and no fielding behind me, it's not polite". It took a while before Nick Jones would talk to him.

The Embassy innings opened with Prant and Greaves. No early breakthroughs came from either of the 2 opening bowlers: Eddy Hoyle, in his first game or Charlie Hedley in his umpteenth. In fact, it took until Patrick Clarke's 2nd over before Greaves was finally caught with the Embassy score already on 81. Unfortunately for Chantilly these runs were being scored a goodly pace and a big score was looming.

Prant continued playing the bowling with ease, hitting 3 sixes on his way to a century. A few overs later he retired to give his teammates a thwack.

Most of Chantilly's bowlers will rue this game's effect on their averages. Only Hoyle and Clarke kept things in check with 1 for 28 off 7 and 2 for 36 respectively.

The Embassy finished on 240 for 6 off their 35 overs.

Teas were courtesy of the Oakleys and Homers - bringing forth further worthy contenders to carrot and lemon cakes of the year.

Sansbury and Pretsell led CCC's reply. To chase that many runs we needed a productive start but the Embassy bowling was so tight that it took 7 overs to get into double figures. Pretsell was first to go giving himself loads of room to cut a straight one from Jitan. Nick Sansbury scratched out 11 runs (including, it has to be said, a couple of fine fours) before leaving the task to Hoyle and Clarke.

Now Patrick Clarke has 2 types of innings. The first - the one we were hoping for, and really needed today - is where he smacks the ball all over the ground with superb timing and arrogance. The second - is where he is caught 2nd ball, just before getting his eye in. Mmmm, today was the latter. A special mention for Patrick who was having his last game before going off to school in England. I'm not sure what came over you, putting your education over cricket, but good luck anyway. We'll savour that last innings (that's what happens when you prepare too far in advance - ed.)

Both Clarke and Sansbury's wickets were at the hands of David Godfrey, who is supposed to be a Chantilly player for heaven's sake. [Jacques and David: Please work out your priorities here].

Eddie Hoyle provided the only real resistance as Chantilly colleagues came and went at a regular rate. He finished with 40 - a good day's graft from our new lad from t' North.

Whilst his opening bowlers seemed to do all the hard work, Arun Justus brought himself on to take 4 easy wickets and the game was wrapped up.

Chantilly were out for a 94 - down by ppfffff. (Do you find when you need a calculator to work out how many you've lost by, you lose all motivation). Can you blame the captain? Honestly, I'd like to, but Denzil slipped into the role with unnerving ease, despite his 2 short legs. No; once again the Embassy were the better team. Till next time, of course.
