Saracens Cricket Club


Chingford v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 30 Sep 2012 at 12.30
Saracens Cricket Club Lost By 90 Runs

Match report Last game of the UK season at Chingford, fairly cool overcast day with the home skipper suggesting he wanted to bat, Sarries in the field then! Debuts for Nathan Hanks & Lloyd Bates.

Slogger got stuck on the A10 and turned up pretty late taking the W Award nice and early. On the pitch things started well with debutant Nathan Hanks picking up a wicket in the 3rd over, Fanny then cleaned up the other opener with a jaffa in the 4th over. A powerfully built number 3 came in and started building a partnership with the lucky number 4 who was dropped by Fud at slip, Fanny of his own bowling, Helmet at midwicket and even played on without removing a bail!

Damo dropped the number 3 in the late 80’s and by the end he had smashed 150 not out in a 213 run partnership in just 29 overs. Number 4 eventually held out to be replaced by an England U15 opening bat they had held back. Chingford posted a massive 260 of just 38 overs.

Saracen run chase started well, both Fanny & Slogger looked in good touch and both got out before 10 overs were completed cheaply. Trickys good form continued with a golden. Helmet and Damo rebuilt for a while before both fell leaving Dinghy to marshal the tail once more. Lloyd smashed a couple, Fud flicked through midwicket, Nathan smashed a huge 4, Baloo hit 3 boundaries in a row and even Bun managed a 6 but sadly none could support Dinghy who top scored with a fine, controlled, respectable 34 not out. Saracens all out for 170.

W Award = Ben ‘Slogger’ Wallis (Late)
