Ibiza CC v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 08 Oct 2017 at 1.30pm
Saracens Cricket Club Lost by 4 wkts

Match report Game two and with Jenks plastered up the same 11 arrived and this time Sarries were batting first .
Skipper Hitchy struggling from the night before sorted out batting order and Woody and Tricky opened. they put on 24 before Woody was caught for 13. Having voiced an opinion about batting higher Cabbie was promoted to No 3 with Ben graciously moving down the order to accomodate him . unfortunately his stay was shortlived out second ball for 0..
Hitchy joined tricky and added 11 before Tricky(12) was caught. Vinnie joined Hitchy but at 44 played an awful shot and was bowled ( a few swear words and chair kicking followed )
Ben strode to wicket and hit first ball for six but lost Hitchy(8) the ball before drinks.
With Ben looking confident someone had to stay with him
19 was added with Dingy(5) and Tony (Hip Hop Harry) went without troubling the scorers.
Ben reached his 50 and with Bun added 24 before Ben went for 66.
Conor joined Bun and batting left handed hit his first ball for 4 and with Bun took the score to 138-8 with Bun finishing the innings with a 4,6(over mid wicket and into the stand)and 4 .Conor finished 5 n.o with Chris B not required to bat
Before taking to field team decided any dropped catches would receive a fine of 5 euros hoping to improve our catching .
Bun and Tony B opened and kept it tight with Bun picking up the opener with a smart catch from Hitchy.
An inspired Tricky came on first change and grabbed two quick wickets (Bowled and caught)which brought the well liked Partridge to the wicket. With polite sledging from the field and the Sarries barmy army it wasnt long before we had the wicket we wanted . A superb bit of fielding from Cabbie running in from deep cover , a perfect throw and Partridge was well short - cue joyous celebration and a slow begrudging walk off with the sarries Barmy army celebrations ringing in his ear. The barmy Sarries army were in full voice with a rendition of YMCA and saw tricky pick up his 3rd wicket(bowled) and Ibiza were 40-5 at drinks after 15 overs.
After drinks Ibiza played themselves into the game with Cooper and Crutwell batting well. Despite the efforts of all the bowlers and fielders they took the total to 125 before Tricky ended the partnership with a smart Ben stumping . With 13 needed off 12 balls Parmeter hit two sixes leaving Dingy to bowl the last over with only one needed which Ibiza duly got off the first ball. Bowlers figures as follows : Bun 1-28, Tony B 0-44, Tricky 4-11, Dingy 0-30, Cabbie 0-34.used to these playing conditions so close.
W award Cabby - out 2nd ball after promoting himself in the order
Shot of day Bun - 6 over mid wicket
catch of day - Tricky
Champagne moment - Sarries Barmy army singing YMCA

End of a tough season which saw 5 wins 3 draws and 12 losses although at least 4 of the losses were by a close margin .
Well done to Tricky for captaining the side and trying to get 11 each week
Thanks to all the supporters who brave all sorts of weather each Sunday to come and support the side.
Thank you to Les Hitch for commentary each week and for the organising of the fantasy league and website
Have a good winter and see you next year TTFN
