Catalunya Cricket Club v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 05 Oct 2013 at 11.30
Saracens Cricket Club Won by 7 wickets
Saracens arrived for there first game of the Barcelona tour at the olympic stadium (sort of-it was where the baseball was played))with the ground closed and no pitch laid. Whilst waiting the oppo practised in the road while our opening bowler(babs allen)fell asleep on the bench suffering the effects of the night before . we looked so professional.
The ground was opened and the pitch laid Randy as skipper told them we were fielding.
Before we started the dressing room was very silent and emotional as Squibby gave a Martin Luther King (I have a dream) spleech and announced his retirement due to him not being able to bat bowl and field anymore.Vinny wondered at what point he was able to. seriously thank you squibby for all the years of being a saracen.
We also welcomed back scouse who hadnt played all year .
The game began with Morgs and Babs keeping it tight early on despite the former bowling 8 ball overs. Two good catches by Ben and Vinny accounted for the openers and the spin twins of bun and dingy kept the runs down to 6 an over backed up by good fielding and great catches in the outfield by tricks and slogger (the second a spectacular one). Catalunya reached 122 off there 40 overs.
Our innings started poorly with morgs (0)and squibby(1) gone in the first two overs. Slogger and Randy repaired the damage to add 70 before Randy(30) was caught on the boundary with around 7 overs left. Fud joined Slogger with around 40 needed and batted with confidence to see it through with us winning off the last ball. well done Slogger(66) and Fud (14)for seeing it through at the end. everyone played there part in a good win by 7 wickets .
In his first game this year scouse picked up the W award for dropped catch,missed stumping and falling asleep for the entire saracens innings.
with the presentations over we travelled back to the hotel for a quiet night lol
