CCC vs Lille - 30 September

Posted by: webmaster on Monday November 19, 2012 (19:05:22)
A dejected captain
Chantilly’s last day of cricket in 2012 was not particularly satisfying and it has taken several weeks to find the enthusiasm to write a match report. Not to write the report however would be to do a disservice to the excellent teas. And also you wouldn’t get to hear how we know that Patrick Heard has his mouth open when he runs in to bowl.

Part of the unhappiness on the day was due to confusion over the format – for which I take my share fair of the blame (if anyone is meant to understand the rules, it should be the captain!). We had agreed to play a T20 then a 10 over game. CCC thought this meant 2 games; Lille thought it meant 1 game with 2 innings, anyway…

And part of the problem was that maybe Chantilly CC was just ready for the end of the season. As they adjusted their pads, old-timers Sansbury and Pretsell looked out bemused at the Lille players whipping themselves into a fervour in preparation for the arrival of the batsmen. Someone suggested CCC responding with a haka, but we had only recently had lunch and half of our players were sitting down. Thank to young John, son of James from Lille, for being our 11th man and bringing our average age down below 40.    more ...

CCC vs Embassy (the sequel)

Posted by: webmaster on Sunday September 23, 2012 (09:37:26)
Finally this summer we’ve been granted some perfect weather for cricket. The Embassy team joined us at Apremont for the 3rd and final time this year for a 35-over match.
Embassy captain Stuart Hollins won the toss and decided to bat and sent out Ritzena and Baldwin to open.

Nick Clarke tried out his sore calf muscle, bowling for 1 over whilst Hoyle was parking his car. 12 runs later, we thought it best to give the ball back to Eddy. 6 of those runs came courtesy of Jimmy Regan who, at fine leg, stylishly tipped Ritzina’s hook over to the wrong side of the boundary marker.

The Chantilly opening bowlers didn’t make the breakthrough and we had to wait for the first change of Warren Pretsell and Patrick Clarke. The Embassy’s steady start ended when Baldwin was caught behind by Jack Oakley (1 of 2 for Jack, today) off the bowling of Clarke with the score on 47.
Catch of the Match came from Patch running back (stop that - ed). Ok. Patrick Clarke took a great catch off Praneeth’s top edge running back from gully, over his shoulder, just as Praneeth was looking seriously comfortable at 26.

Meanwhile at the other end Warren Pretsell dropped a bit of a dolly – firmly hit, maybe – but a drop nevertheless. The bang on the thumb seemed to be quite painful, but we’ll need photographic or X-ray evidence if this is to qualify for Injury of the Year. Other than that little blip, Pretsell’s bowling produced some highly valuable wickets including those of Praneeth and captain Hollins. He finished with figures of 4 for 26 off 7.

The Embassy run rate was increasing though. The departure of Hollins brought Greaves to the crease, who with Ian Roux added 76 for the 6th wicket. The strategy of bringing Hoyle and Jimmy Regan to clamp down the runs didn’t work so well as the Embassy clocked up 221. Greaves reached his 50 in double-quick time in Heard’s last over which went for 19. The last 3 balls of the final over gave some belated cheer to Chantilly as Regan took the wickets of Greaves and Roux. No hat trick for Jimmy this time, but truth be said, the rest of the team were pretty happy to settle for a dot ball.

Excellent teas were provided by the all the Sansburys. The flapjacks were very good: warmed and softened further under the sun! Good to see Nick Shepherd there as well, looking wistfully out towards the wicket…    more ...

CCC at the Imperius T20

Posted by: webmaster on Sunday September 23, 2012 (09:23:44)
CCC openers
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.    more ...

CCC vs Nomads

CCC vs Nomads
Did anyone else have trouble walking on Sunday or Monday? Or scratching their back? Maybe it was only me, but I was really quite stiff following the afternoon of cricket on the 25th August.

We welcomed back the Nomads for their annual tour of the departements around Paris, although you have to say that the team had a very heavy influence from Thoiry. No problem, we’re just as happy beating Thoiry (well that’s easier said than done, to be honest). Nomad’s captain Michael Blumberg had agreed that we play 2 T20s – serving as CCC’s practise for the tournament at Standard next week.

The toss went Chantilly’s way (I would never have called heads) and Nomads were put into bat. Mark Moodley and Jack Hardy opened the batting and provided a steady start against Nick Clarke and Eddy Hoyle. Clarke took the wicket of Moodley with the score on 32, Hardy going on to score a well-deserved 52. Gribbel chipped in with 19, getting bowled by Patrick Clarke, one of his 2 wickets. This final wicket of the innings took place on the 2nd ball of the last over with the score on 122. Davidson, intent on shock and awe, took the total to 138 with the 4 remaining balls.    more ...

CCC vs Embassy

Posted by: webmaster on Wednesday July 18, 2012 (12:35:12)
Some of you may have noticed that the weather hasn’t been too good this year. Some of you may have started planting rice in your vegetable patches as a more reliable source of nutrition. And 1 or 2 of you may have seen Nick the Vic out in the fields north of Chantilly, training his pet dove to carry sprigs of olive. (Nick, if there’s something you want to tell us, we can take it).

So on the morning of the 8th, we were still debating whether to play or not. Given that the egg sandwiches had just been prepared, there was no alternative but to go ahead.

A little later than scheduled Hollins called wrong and Chantilly decided to bat: 35 overs.

Oakley started with Sansbury but left shortly later for 3, bowled Praneeth. Nick Clarke came in and played with purpose and timing until he drove over the top of a full pitched delivery, and he was bowled for 14 in the 8th over.

A Chantilly mid-order collapse then ensued with Patrick Heard, then Patrick Clarke, then Nick Sansbury all out over the next 16 balls.

With the score at 29 for 5 the task of regrouping and building a defendable total was now in the hands of Denzil Homer and Jack Oakley. Chantilly stabilised for 3 overs or so until Jack found himself called for a 3rd run that he could not make. Fazal came in and played well for Chantilly’s second highest score of 13.

The Chantilly tail resisted for a while – a nice 4 from Ripoche and Joshua Pursey emerging from the duck pond onto dry land with 1 not out. But the final score of 65 off 23 overs was going to be tricky to defend, to say the least.    more ...

Lille vs CCC

Posted by: webmaster on Thursday July 12, 2012 (19:15:04)
It’s been a while since CCC players went up the road to play at Lille – to assist with Lille’s inaugural match back in August 2007. So it was high time to go back, especially after 2 postponements of the fixture earlier in the season.

The reception committee (Lawrence Foster’s wife) offered the early arrivals a drink, toilets and a changing room – thank you for that!

The ground was a short walk from the friterie, nestled between the houses of Mérignies and its school. Laurence Foster himself was chief groundsman for the week leading up to the game, and he’d had a lot to do! The school, of course, was out of bounds at the weekend and there were strict instructions not to hit it! The pitch was rather oddly shaped with 1 or 2 short boundaries and the rolling downland nature of the wicket had both captains looking to field first, just to see how it played.

Getting back onto familiar ground, Rob Oakley lost the toss for Chantilly and Nick Sansbury turned up late, so Oakley opened alongside Heard.

Although the day had started beautifully, rain was due for later in the afternoon, so we agreed to play a T20.    more ...

Match Reports 2012

CCC vs Lisse

Posted by: webmaster on Thursday July 12, 2012 (19:12:58)
Clearly not aware of the motivation (or lack of it) at CCC, Lisse CC asked for a match on Sunday 24th June starting at nine am! The problems were numerous: the time, some people work on Sundays and a BBQ that began at 12.30pm. So, just finding a team for Chantilly was proving hard work and Rob, the cap, had to ask for Jimmy’s dad, Shaun Regan, and Kalim’s friend, Usman, to come and play.
So, on a wet Sunday morning at nine o’clock, the whole Chantilly cricket team had arrived but there was no sign of the team from Lisse. Finally, after half an hour of waiting most of them arrived and Rob got straight down to business by winning the toss (he must be using his special coin) and electing to field first on the basis that Chantilly are good at chasing runs....

Jimmy opened the bowling and claimed the first wicket in the fifth over and Kalim continued the attack with a wicket in the next over. Patrick Heard also got on the score sheet with an LBW decision against Saravanan.

Warren Pretsell preserved the family honour by getting a wicket, which was neatly caught by Jean-François Ripoche. However, when Lee Pretsell came into the attack, the crowd (Sue and Jonathan Pease) held their breath – would it be a traditional no ball or a wide? Sadly, it was neither, but a straight six from Bathu that was launched in the direction of the scorer’s box a.k.a. Rob’s car – the dent in the bonnet has the best chance of winning the “injury of the year” award so far.
The catching wasn’t the greatest in the history of CCC with seven potential wickets lost due to dropped catches. However, this could reasonably be blamed on the weather as by this time the rain was coming down in buckets. In the end, the opposition scored a total of 165 for 7 off 30 overs with their eighth batsman, Bathu, (rumoured to play for France Cricket) scoring 54 not out. Credit should go to Robin Richardson who got the most wickets with 3 for 28 off six overs.    more ...

Match Reports 2012

CCC vs Lille

Posted by: webmaster on Tuesday June 19, 2012 (13:58:10)
We're all athletes!
It was from around about the time when Jimmy sent me a text message to say that he was ill, that I started to feel we could win this game. It happened that Patch Clarke was back in town and was keen to show us the results of his extensive and expensive English cricketing tuition, so he took Jimmy’s place.

Chantilly won the toss and put Lille in to bat in this 30-over game.

Parent and Wentworth junior opened up for Lille but the tight bowling of Hoyle took Wentworth’s wicket in only the 3rd over. Runs took a long time to come. By the time Hoyle finished his spell of 6 overs, he had only conceded 5 runs and the Lille total was on 28 off these first 12 overs.

Kalim Fazal took over from Richardson and had A. Jiffry caught behind (plucked a couple of inches off the floor by Jack Oakley) on only his second ball bowled. It was a useful wicket because Jiffry had previously displayed his intent by knocking Robin Richardson back over his head for 6.

Now it may have become apparent that cricket teas are a very important feature of the CCC ethos. It is only correct therefore that Robin Richardson should leave the field for 10 or 11 overs to ensure that everything was in its place. One has to ask after all, whether it will be our cricket or our cakes that will be remembered in 20 years’ time. Many good cricketers and observers of our game believe that it will be the cakes.

So whilst cakes were being iced and centred on plates, Based was equalling Lille’s top score of 16. The flight and guile of Captain Powell ended his fun, taking out his stumps as he gave it the charge.

Best figures of the day (please note the use of the plural) came from Patrick Heard with 4 for 24, effectively knocking the stuffing out of the Lille innings. Well done Patrick, you really showed us what you are made of. Now can you please get that split in your trousers sown up?

Top scorer for Lille was Wides with 28. And with 37 extras in total, it can’t be said that we didn’t do our bit to help.

Final score: 107 for 7.    more ...

CCC vs Thoiry

Posted by: webmaster on Monday June 04, 2012 (16:42:04)
Surveying the wreckage
Our second meeting against Thoiry in 2012 took place at Chantilly’s picturesque new pitch. So pretty, you could almost imagine using it in a film scene…

Rob Oakley won the toss (will this winning streak never end?) and decided to bat. Given the sunny weather we went for a 40-over format, somewhat optimistically as it turned out.

Sansbury and Oakley opened for Chantilly and fended off some tight pace bowling from Thoiry new boy Stringer and Habib Khan. Cue collapse. Sansbury was bowled with the score on 11, followed swiftly by Hoyle, playing on. The score nudged up to 14 before 3 more wickets fell. Chantilly’s hopes of lasting out the 40 overs, and scoring a defendable 160+ runs with this weekend’s faster outfield, were being severely tested, to say the least.

The collapse continued with ducks of all colours liberally sprinkled through the team. With Chantilly at 21 for 8, it was time for a recovery. Cometh the hour, cometh the batsman. Warren “cheque’s in the post” Pretsell started hitting the ball around the field in a manner that the rest of us had just imagined. He was not out at the end for 28, ably supported by Regan with 8 – CCC’s second highest scorer. The last 2 wickets had tripled the Chantilly total and we headed for tea with the score on 65 having survived a paltry 20 overs.

All credit to Habib Khan with bowling figures of 5 for 5 off 3.2 overs. And commiserations to Denzil who had the “shooter of the year” to bowl him out.

In fact, we didn’t stop for tea, because it was still a bit early. So the Thoiry openers put their pads on, surely with the expectation of serving up a full innings stuffing, with extra gravy.    more ...

CCC vs Embassy

Posted by: webmaster on Friday June 01, 2012 (16:09:06)
Oakley battles for a 47
This 35-over game started early to allow Chelsea fans to get back in front of the tele before their game against Bayern Munich. But it was a good idea for a second reason: Captain Powell’s radar predicted large drops of rain at Apremont with an ETA of 18:03, even though we started in fine sunshine.

Chantilly won the toss and chose to bat. Apparently Stuart Hollins has as much trouble with a coin as Rob Oakley, so this was a fairly matched competition. Despite this early success, Chantilly decided to carry on and pad up; Sansbury and Lee Pretsell opening up.

Pretsell went in the first over, replaced by Clarke in his first game of the season – and one of the few he will play unless we can disrupt a few marriage plans over the summer. Clarke and Sansbury held things together for several overs until Clarke ran himself for a useful 17, trying to extract 3 runs out of a 2.

Sansbury had scored a solid 19 when he was caught, bringing in Warren Pretsell who along with Rob Oakley built up a useful partnership that lasted until the 30th over. Conditions were not ideal for scoring a large number of runs – the outfield was thick and green and Chantilly had been batting for at least an hour before Pretsell showed how to get the ball to the other side of the flags.

Pretsell W. went for 27, trying to smash a straight one into the trees. Hoyle came and went in the same over, continuing his unhappy start-of-season with the bat. Homer stepped in and helped keep the score ticking at a run-a-ball for the last 5 overs.

Oakley was finally bowled in the last over for 47. Chantilly were at 139 for 6 at the end of time, leaving the Embassy with exactly 4 an-over to win.    more ...
