Chingford 2nd XI v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 28 Sep 2014 at 12.30pm
Saracens Cricket Club Won by 9 Wickets

Match report We travelled to Chingford, in what turned out to be our final UK game of the 2014 season, with 2 debutant's (Dan & Tim Knifton) and only 9 players. Charlie "CF" Knighton and Pete King pulled out on Friday night and Sunday morning respectively - so again no need for the W award meeting again this week.

We won the toss and had a bowl, Rich "CF" Gough and Formula 1 opened up, and both created chances, Sloggers sharp work behind the sticks went un rewarded as far as the umpires were concerned. Despite those good spells, and the introduction of Dan "Smiff" Knifton, Chingford eased their way to 75 before Bunski picked up two quick wickets.

Tricky replaced "Smiffton" and struck early leaving the score on 115-3. With the wicket not offering much, and the short boundary on one side - Chingford were able to take their score on to 197-5, with Humphries scoring a well made 102. Bunski was the pick of our attack, picking up 3-33 from 14 overs.

Woody and Tim opened up for us - and it was clear that Woody was there for a good time, not a long time as he plundered 45 in the first 8 overs as we raced to 73. Despite loosing Woody, Tim continued to score freely as Tricky got him self accustomed to the slowness of the bowling and the wicket.

We moved on to 100 with out any further loses and when the final hour started, we required under 70. Both batters continued on their merry way, with Tim reaching 50 on debut, finishing 71 not out and Tricky undefeated on 41. The pair put on 125 and finished the game, and the UK season with 7 overs to spare.

Yes - we made it 10 wins in a row and are undefeated since early July (Just for you Woody). We played 17 games, won 12 and lost 5 - Not a bad year.

W=Award - Pete King (Pulled out on the Morning of the Game) Although he hasn't stopped Bun winning it overall!!!!
