CCC vs Nomads

Posted by: webmaster on Friday September 09, 2011 (10:21:00)   (4115 Reads)
Chantilly's run of wins came to an abrupt end at the hands of the Nomads (or was it a France cricket XI?) on the 28th August. Any spectator wandering past at around 4pm would have put a reasonable sum on Chantilly to win. Turning up again 3 hours later to watch Chantilly seal the victory, he would have been lucky to find anyone still up at the ground - and there were certainly no winnings to be handed over.

Chantilly won the toss and put Nomads in for this 40 over game. Opening bowlers Hoyle and Regan kept the lid on run scoring for a long time, between them giving away only 29 runs for 16 overs bowled.

The departure of Surridge, who had battled long and hard just to stay there, brought in Davidson who had scored 90-odd the previous day against Thoiry. His steady start was ominous in the fact that he seemed to play all his shots with the middle of the bat – something rarely seen at Apremont.

After 20 overs the Nomads had still only scored 56 runs, but were starting to accelerate. And around this time Chantilly started dropping catches. Never, on the field at Apremont, has so much been dropped by so many for so few wickets taken. Truth be said, Eddy got a couple of good ones. Maybe we were rusty after our mid-summer break, but poor fielding and the skills of Davidson (who went on to score 114 not out) led to a final score of 194 for 4.

Still, this sort of score is attainable on a good day for Chantilly so we went into tea licking our wounds but not without hope. And a very fine tea it was, with some weird and wonderful sandwiches courtesy of Eddy with some help from Tris.

The Sansbury/Pretsell pairing opened up for Chantilly. Batting was difficult from the start though and Sansbury went, bowled in the first over and Richardson retired hurt a few balls later when he was hit on the thumb. Hoyle offered some resistance scoring CCC’s highest score of 13 but no other Chantilly batter reached double figures.

After 15 overs, Chantilly were actually ahead of the Nomads score at the same point. But 4 wickets were down (plus 1 retiree) and things were not looking good. Chantilly’s middle and lower order picked up a few runs but not one player hit a 4 in the innings and we were all out for 51 – 143 behind Nomads and with some 16 overs left. A right stuffing, you might say.

The final 2 wickets were taken by non-Nomads, Patrick Heard and Geoffrey Dys – thanks to them for helping Nomads have a team.

On the positive side, the Chantilly bowling was actually good – we looked competitive for a while. And the teas, of course. And it didn’t rain. On the negative side was most of the rest. Is it time to come along to practise again?
