Saracens Cricket Club


Stirlands v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 13 Jul 2014 at 2.00pm
Saracens Cricket Club Won by 5 Wickets

Match report Our 2nd game of the Portsmouth UK tour took us to Stirlands Cricket Club near Chichester, a ground voted the best wicket in Sussex two years ago. So with the sun beaming down, we won the toss and decided to have a bowl.

On an absolute belter of a wicket, Tricky and Shane opened up and kept things reasonably tight. Tricky was rewarded for his consistent line and length with a wicket from his final delivery, caught down the leg side by slogger.

Bun and Rich replaced Tricky and Shane. Rich kept it even tighter, whilst Bun picked up a couple of wickets, but leaked a few runs. Rich finished his 6 over spell in the heat, to be replaced by Dinghy and the spin twins, along with some good catching and fielding, made runs hard to come by.

Wickets continued to fall at regular intervals - 4 to Dinghy and 3 to Bun as Stirlands finished on 172-8 from 41 overs.

After an interesting tea (which included Port and Cheese), Slogger and Skid opened up and runs began to come in a hurry as the pair put on 63 before Skid fell for 29.

Randy joined Slogger and added another 44 before the former fell for 8. Slogger fell for 65, quickly followed by Nut Meg for 0, leaving the score on 117-4.

A partnership of 35 between Slow-mo and Rich moved the score on to 152, before Rich holed out for 31. This bought Tricky to the crease with 23 required to win from 8 overs, and along with Vinnie (28 not out), they saw us to victory with 3.5 overs to go.

A really good performance in the field and solid run chase ment that we would leave the south coast undefeated.

W-Award: Nut Meg - Letting the ball through his legs, delegating the captaincy and getting a Duck.
