CCC vs Hermits

Posted by: webmaster on Thursday July 21, 2011 (12:32:40)   (3703 Reads)
 
Chantilly Cricket Club had their second good reason to write a match report this year - their first victory in the 2011 season, at the sixth attempt. Gawd bless you, Hermits, every one of ya!

The format of the game was decided as 35 overs but with a few tweaks. All players (other than those that really refused) would bowl at least 1 over. As a counter-measure (- to avoid us playing until 10 pm), wides would count as 2 runs and not merit the extra ball. And for fun, no balls would be followed by free hit - T20 style.

Unfortunately, the Hermits had a couple of late withdrawals from the tour, but Chantilly players (strike bowler, Tris Congreve and ace fielder, Mark Hunter) kindly accepted to cross to the dark side.

The Hermits won the toss and put Chantilly in to bat. Sansbury and Pretsell opened up and all looked to be going well until Sansbury pulled to leg and was brilliantly caught by the turncoat, Hunter.

 
The demise of Pretsell for an unlucky 13 brought in captain Oakley who went on to get a jug-avoiding 47. Together with Heard (42) they put on 57 for the 4th wicket partnership and took the score into the zone of respectability. Both were out caught by Palmer at short fine leg, bowled Blake - we'll have to watch for that combination next time...

The 6th wicket had fallen in the 24th over and it wasn't at all certain whether Chantilly would last out the full 35. However, Heard and Regan added 69 between them and held the innings together. At the end of 35 overs, Chantilly were 194 for 7.

The Jones' provided teas and we were treated to a fine spread that included several very gooey, sticky cakes that threatened to slow up the fielders by several kilometres per hour. Thank you Cheryl!

All the additional energy ingested by Lee Pretsell helped him take the wickets of both openers in his 5 over spell. With only 5 runs on the board, Ewan Ramsay came to the crease to a quip from the slips, "Welcome to hell". But it didn't adversely affect his batting and he smacked the ball several times to the boundary to finish with his team's best score of 23.

CCC's occasional bowlers made hay in the sun, Ripoche picking up 2 wickets including the clean bowling of Congreve. Nick Sansbury (known more for depositing balls on the roof of the practise net) brought flight and guile to proceedings and also got 2 wickets. And Jack Oakley enticed Mark Hunter down the wicket to have him stumped by Jones.

The more experienced bowlers showed class in their own way. Heard and Clarke between them conceding only 1 run for 2 wickets off 4 overs. In the end, CCC's normal opening bowler Jimmy Regan was the only CCC fielder not to bowl and he must be wondering now whether he'll ever get his place back.

Hermit wickets fell regularly. Resistance was offered by Palmer who finished on 21 but all his partners deserted him and the Hermits were all out for 99 (or 101, depending on the scorebook that you happen to peruse!)

This was Hemingford Hermits 3rd game of the season and they too were looking for their first win. On behalf of CCC, "thank you for accepting the wooden spoon this time". We wish you a safe return and better fortune in your 4th game.

The evening ended for the Hermits and several Chantilly players chez the Curtis' where they enjoyed good food, wine and company until even the mosquitoes went to bed.
