CCC vs Lisse (part 3)

11 September dawned wet, much as had the rest of the summer, with the forecast of heavy rain to come . But Rob, our illustrious captain would not be deterred, and Chantilly would be playing their last minute, 25 over match against Lisse. This was the third match against the same team this season, a team who have only recently formed and are looking for as much practice as they can get. They had beaten Chantilly on their first attempt, but at the second had been pegged back giving Chantilly a 78 run victory. So, the series was balanced at 1 a-piece, and Chantilly were keen to stay on top.

As is normal Rob lost the toss, and with drizzle starting to fall CCC were put into the field. Without our star bowler of the season (Eddy Hoyle) it seemed we were destined to struggle, and Lisse set about the bowling with some relish. Regan and Richardson stuck at their task but for no reward, eventually going for 38 and 32 runs respectively off their 5 overs. Heard made a difference when he came into bowl, taking a sharp caught and bowled to dismiss Aru for 14, which unfortunately only brought Baskar to join Bala at the crease. Bala had eventually made 59 when he was bowled by Heard, but other wickets were hard to find. Chantilly’s catching was woeful, perhaps down to the weather, but at least 5 dollies were spilled which cost us dear. Pretsell managed one wicket, bowled not caught of course, but with Baskar finishing not out on 60 Lisse amassed 175 runs for the loss of only 3 wickets in total.

The rain really started to fall heavily in the interval but we stuck with it and were rewarded when it reduced from deluge to a mere downpour which meant we could take to the field. Rob decided to open as a few of our normal batters were missing, and, along with Lee Pretsell, managed to keep the scoreboard ticking along at 5 an over for the opening 5 overs. Rob had kept the strike well, so by the time Lee was bowled in the 6th over, he had only scored 3 of the 26 runs from the opening partnership. Patrick Heard came in at number 3, and both he and Rob settled in well for another 4 overs, keeping the scoring rate going. However, from the 9th over on, wickets started to tumble on an all too regular basis. Heard departed, bowled for 19 and Rob soon followed for 26. Phil Gay made a cameo appearance (he plays for Standard but wanted the practice) but both he, Powell, Regan and Jones all departed without troubling the scorers too much.

Denzil Homer, our keeper came in at number 6, a little low on batting confidence but made the most of his promotion; finding the middle well and running up a few runs as the end opposite crumbled. With Jean-Francois Ripoche also timing the ball well the score reached 3 figures, for 7 wickets. However, in the 24th over Homer managed to find the top edge of his bat with the ball, and the ball then managed to find his eyebrow, still travelling at a fair whack. Realising that somehow Powell had remained uninjured for the season (so far), and that the ‘Best Injury’ prize was still unallocated, Homer had made a late bid. He retired hurt on 9 and retreated to the hospital to see if he qualified – we’ll have to wait until the end of season bash to find out if he did (15 stitches and no broken bones is a pretty poor effort if you ask me – ed).

In the end Chantilly were woefully short of the target and finished on 120-8, 55 runs short. Whilst not quite as large a margin as CCC won by last match it still meant that Lisse had won the series 2-1. Well done to them. Chantilly had to go on to the inaugural Twenty20 championship in Paris on the back of a defeat. And with the memory of some all too easy catches regularly going to ground. It should also be noted, whether this is relevant or not, that following the relaying of the pitch, in this match, 9 out of 11 wickets were clean bowled. If this is down to the new dips which have appeared just outside the popping crease, we can’t be sure...
