Ibiza CC v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 07 Oct 2017 at 1.30pm
Saracens Cricket Club Lost by 108 runs

Match report first game of tour and after celebrating Vinny,s 50th the night before surprisingly all 12 players were available for selection with Conor (Brick) standing down.
The pitch was an artificial football pitch with the bounce a little uneven . opening with Tricky and Cabbie Ibiza scored quickly as we conceded 40 in the first six overs before cabbie made the break through with hitchy taking a good catch. bun came on and immediately took a wicket caught behind by Ben . With two short boundaries either side of the wicket it was difficult to keep the run rate down not helped by the numerous full tosses bowled of which the No 3 took a liken too. In the 13th over with 86 on the board Hitchy took the next wicket with a smart catch by tricky (catch of the day)and then had another lbw the next over
At 90-4 after 15 we hoped to keep Ibiza to 150 but with Jenks giving everyone a bowl the oppo scored another 90 off the next 9 overs with the No 3 Mills and No 5 -Twins hitting to all parts . With Mills approaching 100 Vinnie bowled his only decent ball of his one over and Ben done the rest stumped and cue celebration for Vinnie's first Sarries wicket after 12 years . All the team were brought down to earth next ball when jenks broke his thumb attempting to take a tough catch . Conor was summoned from the stand and took to the field as replacement.
another 3 wickets fell in quick succession with a run out and Bun picking up 2 wickets including Twins bringing a big cheer from those in the stand, followed by Dinghy's first wicket of the game. A late onslaught by No 11 Amos took the score to 215-9 off 30 overs.Bowlers figures as follows: Tricky 0-17, Cabbie 1-23, Dingy 1-31, Bun 3-42, hitchy 2-23, Jenks 0-13, Tony B 0-9, woody 0-11, Chris B 0-21 and Vinnie 1-19
Opening with woody and Vinnie we race to 39 off 3 overs before Vinnie was adjudged lbw for 14 and Woody went soon after for 25. Ben and Hitchy found it difficult on a pitch hard to get used to and ben was next to go for 5.
Hitchy and and the newly nicknamed Tony Hip Hop harry Bunyan added 26 before 3 wickets for 3 runs with Hitchy(32) Hip Hop Harry(7) and Tricky(0) all falling.
10 runs were added before Cabbie(8) went followed soon after by Bun (4) .
At 107 Chris (0) and Conor(0) went in successive balls and our innings was over with Dingy(11 n.o). We reached 107 and a loss by 108 runs.
A combination of dropped catches, not used to the pitch and losing your main run scorer did not help and improvement needed for game 2
W award Jenks-
Champagne moment - Vinnie (1st Sarries wicket)
shot of day - Hitchy six
Catch of day - Tricky
