CCC at the Imperius T20

As last year, Imperius Asset Management sponsored a T20 weekend at Standard Athletic Club, Meudon, featuring Chantilly CC, British Embassy CC, Juveniles CC and the Standard Athletic CC. We were drawn to play against Standard in the 2nd semi-final on Saturday afternoon.

Chantilly won the toss and chose to bat. A few balls into the first over Nick Sansbury, keen to get a move on, called for a single, ran spritely and shortly afterwards found himself standing next to Patrick Heard at the other end. He did well to get back, but not well enough for Denzil’s eagle eyes from square leg. Rob Oakley came and went in a few balls and CCC found themselves on 4 for 2.

Pretsell steadied the ship for a while, but both he and Heard went in consecutive overs to leave CCC at 29 for 4 off 6 overs – and struggling. Eddy Hoyle, however, turned things around and with Adrian Powell put on 48 runs together, with Powell hitting a memorable 6 into the trees at the far end, before being bowled for 21 by Riches.

Patrick Clarke could only add 3 – bowled Philip Gay – leaving Jean François Ripoche to play best supporting actor for Hoyle in a partnership of 33. The scoring rate of 10 an-over for the last 3 overs took the score to 122 which CCC believed was a minimum defendable target. Hoyle was finally bowled by Groom on the last ball of the innings for a superb 50.

Hoyle also picked up the first Standard wicket – that of Gay for 6 in the 3rd over of their reply. But this only brought in Jonathon Riches who took a liking to Heard’s bowling, dispatching him for a couple of 4s soon after arriving.

Byng was on fire and made the remainder of the Chantilly bowlers pay for bowling that was too often short of a length. He reached his 50 in only the 9th over and charged on to reach 71 not out at the end. The final 8 runs were hit by Riches (44 n.o.) and the game was won after 12.2 overs, with only 1 Standard wicket down.

This sobering defeat was a little tempered by a cool beer, but there was some Chantilly spirit to be repaired overnight. We were now due to play the Juveniles on Sunday morning, who had lost against the Embassy in the first semi-final.

Sunday was forecast to be a little warmer than Saturday which was spent in fine sunshine. However, the morning was overcast and the outfield turned out to be rather slippery with the dew.

Juveniles lost the toss and Chantilly put them into bat. Last year, in the same fixture, Dan Erith had opened for the Juveniles and scored 130 not out. Chantilly players were hoping that this would not be a repeat performance, but Erith was opening once more this year.

In a departure from standard practice, Richardson and Regan opened for CCC (both fine openers in their own right, it has to be said) – but leaving Hoyle for later in the innings, preferably to mop up the stragglers – or that was the plan.
Although Erith got off to a reasonably quick start, Richardson broke through in his 2nd over having Williamson caught behind for 0 by the relieved Homer. But it took a while for the next wicket to appear with Erith and Madina scoring at about 8 an-over in the meantime. The 13th over saw 2 wickets fall – Madina run out for 26 and Ashok LBW in Hoyle’s 1st over.
With the score at 99, Chantilly were hoping that Juveniles would stall and that runs would dry up. Erith and the new batsman Gofton had other ideas and added a crucial 84 from the last 7 overs – at the end, Juveniles were 183 for 3 with Erith at 113 not out: less than he scored a year before, but mighty impressive all the same.

Nick Sansbury and Patrick Heard opened the batting for Chantilly and, with no time to lose, scored 19 off the first 2 overs. Heard provided a handy 15 but in general the Chantilly top order had problems and the team was struggling at 39 for 3 in the 5th over. The task of reaching 183 looked monumental… Once again Hoyle led the recovery. A 77 run 4th wicket partnership with Oakley (14) kept Chantilly on the required rate. Patrick Clarke made a quick 15 and at the end of the 16th over Chantilly were still ahead of the Juveniles run rate at the equivalent point.

At this stage of the game though, it was Juveniles’ bowler Madina who made a critical difference with 3 for 15 off his 4 overs. The departure of Hoyle, caught for 67 with the score on 143 in the 18th over, left too much to be done in too little time, and CCC finished on 151, 32 runs short.

When compared to Saturday’s game, this was a lot tighter with a spirited fight back from a difficult position. It was a good game of cricket and it was not clear until close to the end who would win.

Chantilly’s player of the tournament was undoubtedly Hoyle who bowled well and had scored 117 runs over the 2 days. So good was his performance that he was named “Man of the Series” by the organisers. Well done to him and, repeating a message sent earlier, well done and thanks to all the players for their endeavours against the odds.

Thanks once again to Standard and Imperius for hosting and providing a smoothly-run and challenging weekend.
