Winchmore Hill CC v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 04 Sep 2016 at 1.30pm
Saracens Cricket Club Lost 32 runs
So a team with some oldies and some newbies playing together for the first time, Saracens headed to Winchmore Hill. First shock, we are on the first team wicket and they have 3 first teamers including their Aussie professional playing! A great start for Sarries with Jonnie Harris bowling their Aussie for 0 and their other opener removed shortly after by Dave Wilson. Other wickets were harder to come by, our bowlers all returned reasonable spells holding WHCC to 210 on a perfect batting pitch. Dave Wilson excelled in the field, with a one handed catch that even got cheers and applause from the opposition. Catch of the decade in the deep.
So we get to chase a total that could have been worse.
Our own Aussie pro, Woody, started in usual fashion. Dispatching the ball to all parts. Accompanied by returning veteran, Del Boy Huckle, we got a quick 50 on the board. Then a mini collapse. Jim and Jonny both out cheaply and grandad Dinghy fresh to the crease. Woody continued in good style and Dinghy looking in good form. We were back in the game until Woody was well caught off a hard hit for 60. Chris, Dave and Tim all joined Dinghy but left soon after leaving Dinghy and the tail to try to get close to the total. We needed 8 an over off the last 9 overs and were up with the rate, Dinghy hitting lots of boundaries. Fud kept an end going, but the run rate was increasing. Dinghy was out for a fine 60 throwing the bat with 4 overs left. Bun came in and whacked 2 fours, but was out with 2 overs left leaving debutante Hana to face the last few balls. She was undefeated as was Charlie but we fell just over 30 runs short. A great effort.
