Aulnay vs CCC

Posted by: webmaster on Wednesday October 09, 2013 (09:24:46)
“Zero out of Two – Could do Better”

Remember back to June of this year when Chantilly lost to Aulnay when chasing 54 runs? It still gives me shivers now. Somehow, with only 5 or 6 wickets down you could sense where it was heading…

Aulnay are a growing club; they’re doing well and have big plans. This year they won the regional league; next year they’re in the national competition. We’d heard that they had a new pitch and wicket and this was our chance to try it out for the first time, down there.

The site is very pleasant, out the back of a sports complex (Stade de la Rose des Vents) and with plenty of space to locate a full sized pitch. The wicket however, needs a little work! It is a Flicx strip that is mostly overgrown with grass. The only patches of Flicx matting that are exposed are where the batsmen stand and where the bowlers run in, and they’re treacherously slippery. Better things are planned though, and the club is currently engaging the Mairie to allow them to put down something more solid for next year.

This is pantomime season and there is a significant proportion of Chantilly players at this time of the year who would rather be clowning around inside, than clowning around outside. This being the case, we had to go looking for some assistance to make up a team – 3 from the Grandes Ecoles stable (Chan, Tyson and Prashant) and 1 from Aulnay (Shan) – “thank you” to them.    more ...

CCC vs Grandes Ecoles

Posted by: webmaster on Wednesday October 09, 2013 (09:17:41)
This was the 2nd attempt at this fixture in 2013, the first having been rained off back in May. A late change meant that Chantilly had to borrow a Grandes Ecoles player, Chan Basavaraj – thanks to him. But Grandes Ecoles had turned up with 13 – so we decided to play 12 against 12 with John Hardy ready to don pads for Chantilly if things got that desperate!

Chantilly won the toss and decided to bat, Heard and Sansbury getting things going. Unfortunately, Heard was caught at the end of the first over and it took quite an effort to get him to hang around for the rest of the afternoon.
Shaban Muhammad came in and runs were accumulated steadily over the next 10 overs or so.

Even when we arrived, it was obvious that this wasn’t going to be a high scoring game – the grass was thick and green. And it took a long time before the first 4 was hit – off the willow of Eddy Hoyle. Hoyle was the only batsman to build up a score of any significance, although Denzil Homer (16) provided critical support during the middle and latter stages to keep the innings intact.

Hoyle was run out with only a couple of overs to go – although he claimed he was in by a country mile – for a jug-avoiding 47. Jack Oakley and Kalim Fazal came and went quickly which left Robin Richardson and John Hardy holding the fort at the end of the prescribed 35 overs.

137 for 10 was the score at the tea break which was a very defendable score on this pitch.    more ...

CCC vs British Embassy pt III

Posted by: webmaster on Wednesday October 09, 2013 (09:14:26)
Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad

Before this game, these two teams had met twice already during the 2013 season. Honors in the first match went to Chantilly, the second to the Embassy. Who would win the decider? Who would keep wicket with Denzil and Jack away? Who would open the batting now that Lee has left the country? And with Rob and Patrick unavailable, who would supply the lipstick? Read on to find out……

With the absence of Captain Rob Oakley, Vice-captain Nick Clarke’s first task of the day was to select a wicket keeper. Thankfully, Nick Sansbury put his soon-to-be-gloved hand up for the job. Chantilly’s opening pair of Richardson and Hoyle put the Embassy under a lot of pressure early on with some very tight bowling. Combined with an outfield as slow as the périphérique on a Friday evening, the Embassy couldn’t get their scoring above 2 runs an over during the opening spell.

With neither bowler able to break through with a wicket however, Regan took it upon himself to start removing the Embassy batsmen. Firstly with a direct-hit run out, and then by coming into the bowling attack to oust the other opener with a good old fashioned Yorker. Realising that he’d definitely woken up on the correct side of bed earlier that morning, Regan decided to go for another run out, and because it felt so good the first time, he decided to make it another direct hit too.

At this point, the Embassy team was doing it tough. Their slow start meant that they would have to start piling on the runs during the middle overs. Luckily for Chantilly, Kalim and Adrian had other plans. Kalim’s swing proved to be rather unplayable, as he clean bowled two of the Embassy’s key batsmen. Not wanting to be left out of the party, Adrian put on a spell of bowling that Shane Warne would have been proud of. Taking three wickets (all caught by various fielders), Adrian ripped the heart out of the Embassy innings, and along with a wicket each from Richardson and Hoyle, allowed the Chantilly players to head back to the pavilion for an early tea break. The British Embassy finishing with 107 from 30 overs.    more ...

Paris T20 2013

Posted by: webmaster on Monday September 23, 2013 (09:48:06)
Back to Standard for the annual T20 bash. We were drawn to play the British Embassy team on Saturday morning. Would we mirror previous years’ results and come bottom of the pile?
With the ground wet and slippery, the Embassy lost the toss and with still 2 players on their way to the ground, had to take to the field. It later transpired that Stuart Hollins, the Embassy captain, wasn’t even on his way to the ground; he was still fast asleep. But he did turn up eventually, with a few overs to go.

Patrick Heard and Hasha Baraiya opened up for Chantilly and showed intent as they started piling up the runs. It was an excellent opening partnership that lasted until the 8th over when, with the score on 53, Baraiya was caught and bowled Abichek for 28.

Surya Azad, suffering from a hamstring tweak from the week before, joined Heard who accelerated his swatting still further. Cross batting the ball back over bowler’s head is not pretty, but it’s very effective, and I’m sorry but swatting is the only word for it. The Azad-Heard partnership took the score to 105 in the 14th over and Chantilly were well still set for a decent total.

And along the way, Chantilly benefitted from several dropped catches – maybe it was to be our day…

The 2nd wicket to fall was that of Azad who, trying to step things up, was caught by Gribell in the deep. Heard passed his 50 with Hoyle now supporting.

The arrival of Gribell, bowling from the far end, put the brakes on the Chantilly innings. The left arm over action, with the ball going across our right handers, was just too tricky to get away. His 4 overs went for 14 runs only.

Heard was finally out, caught, in the 19th over for an excellent 68. Rob Oakley joined Hoyle and they pushed the final score up to 148 for 3.    more ...

CCC vs Nomads

Posted by: webmaster on Monday September 23, 2013 (09:44:19)
Pretsell's last game
“Our president bids farewell”

Bank Holiday weekend in the UK means that the Michael Blumberg and his Nomads are in town, playing Chantilly on the Saturday. A lot of rain had fallen in the morning, to the extent that a lot of mumbo-jumbo was going around as to whether the game would be on. However, the fact that the afternoon’s mumbo-jumbo forecast was slightly better and that this was president Lee’s final outing for Chantilly meant that this game really had to go ahead – mumbo-jumbo, or not.

Chantilly won the toss and put the visitors in to bat for this 35 over match.

Farrell and Hardy opened and put together a very stable platform. The run rate was not that high – around 4-an-over – but it was not at all obvious how to get either of them out. Eddy Hoyle and Patrick Clarke bowled through their initial stretches of 5 overs without making the batsmen’s lives too uncomfortable.

Finally, in the 17th over Farrell gave a ball from Heard the charge, and Denzil Homer completed a straightforward stumping. 2 overs later Jack Hardy pulled to square leg – but directly at Rob Oakley, who held on to the ball.
At the other end, Pretsell had come into the attack. For some reason we had to wait until his 5th ball to be treated to his special “no-ball-over-the-batsman’s-head”.    more ...

CCC vs Lille pt III

Posted by: webmaster on Friday August 23, 2013 (14:41:50)
The third match of 2013 between Chantilly Cricket Club and Lille took place at the Apremont Oval on July 6th, back when the Queen of England had one less grandson, tourists were still travelling to Egypt and most butterflies were still caterpillars! At the time of writing, it is now nearly September, so it goes without saying that some of the finer details of the game may have been forgotten forever. Which means it’s the perfect time to roll out the first ever ‘match report/quiz’. Let’s see how good your memories are…..and if you weren’t there…you’ll just have to guess.

Chantilly batted first in this much anticipated rematch between these two Northern (north of Paris) teams. Chantilly had won the previous two matches held earlier in the year. They were very keen to make it a three-peat!    more ...

CCC vs Aulnay - A Tale of Two Teams

Posted by: webmaster on Monday July 01, 2013 (08:07:49)
What happened?
It was the best of cricket. It was the worst of cricket…. It was also another grey afternoon in Apremont, for what would be the rematch between CCC and Aulnay. Chantilly had been competitive in the first game between the two teams a few weeks earlier, but poor fielding had let a potential win slip away from them. Had they learnt their lessons from last time? Would the game get washed out? Why do we not have a spare trumpet in the gear bag? Read on to find out the answers to these questions and more…..

By the time Captain Oakley had lost the toss, it was already raining heavily, and the players were sitting in their cars wondering why they waited all winter to play cricket when the weather was no different come summertime. Thankfully, the rain lasted about as long as most of our batting partnerships, which meant we were out on the field and ready to play within a matter of minutes.    more ...

Lille vs CCC

Posted by: webmaster on Monday July 01, 2013 (08:04:12)
Jardin Mosaïc in the Parc de la Deûle, Lille
…And gentlemen in Chantilly now-a-bed shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here… in Lille for another fine victory for Chantilly Cricket Club.

It’s been a while since CCC travelled to the Jardin Mosaïc in the Parc de la Deûle. In fact, it was Lille CC’s first ever game and Chantilly could only muster 4 players that day – so Lille invited another team from Belgium to help out. And the last time we were here, the track was a flix wicket. This time is was a grass wicket: a grass wicket in the small English village sense with the odd weed and bump to be wary of as a batter, and maybe to aim at as a bowler.

It’s not easy to find a team to travel so far and Chantilly needed the help from a couple of Creil players (Ajmal and Arif) to make up their numbers. And yet, despite a long walk with the kit bags, it really is a very pleasant place to play cricket.
Both sides decided they would like to take a look at the batting conditions from the bowling and fielding end of things, but Chantilly lost the toss (as is their way) and had to bat first. This was a 30 over game with a maximum 6 overs per bowler.    more ...

CCC vs Thoiry – The Rematch

Posted by: webmaster on Monday July 01, 2013 (07:54:56)
On a grey, drizzly morning, with rain clouds around
CCC and Thoiry said “there’s no reason we’ve found,
to cancel this match that might get us wet.
On with the game! The ground’s not flooded yet!”

And so we arrived, at the Apremont fields
Eyes turned to the skies, hoping light rain would yield
As Rob Oakley flipped coins, and won us the toss
Or maybe he didn’t Perhaps the other guy lost!

“We’re batting!” he said, “Heard and Sainsbury, you’re up!”
“Go out and score runs!” “Don’t come back with two ducks!”
Well they didn’t get ducks, but big scores came ‘non plus’
For both men were caught; Heard for 5, Nick for 2.    more ...

CCC vs Aulnay - Catches Win Matches

Posted by: webmaster on Sunday June 09, 2013 (12:51:13)
The most important part of the day
Having won 4 of the first 5 matches for 2013, the Chantilly Cricket Team couldn’t be blamed for entering this game against Aulnay with confidence levels high. A rumour that their opposition played in the competitive league, and that they had brought their best team to Apremont, failed to dent the early enthusiasm of the CCC players. Would their new found confidence be misguided, or have they truly started making some progress this year. Read on to find out….

Chantilly batted first on a glorious afternoon, which quickly became significantly less glorious as the first 3 wickets fell with only 12 runs on the board. Oakley, Prana, and Pretsell all leaving in single figures (is 0 a single figure?)

Talk of an emergency phone call to Jo, to get the cakes out of the oven early were put on hold however, as Hoyle and Clarke steadied the ship. Both batsmen displayed sound technique and plenty of patience, as they chipped away at the task of building a respectable total. Unfortunately, with the score on a healthy 44, the steady ship hit rocky ground in the form of a run out; Clarke getting stranded mid-pitch, and just a few balls later, Hoyle was bowled, which sent most of the following batsmen looking for their life jackets.

The rest of the Chantilly batsmen tried their best, with Shaban showing some real class in getting to 20, aided by some solid support from Jean-Francois, but with eight batsmen not reaching double figures, Chantilly were always going to struggle to reach 100, finishing with a modest 82 all out off 27 overs.    more ...
