CCC vs CCSB - The Winds of Change!

Posted by: webmaster on Monday April 30, 2012 (17:34:48)   (2012 Reads)
Chantilly’s opening match of the 2012 season commenced in the traditional manner: St Brice turned up half an hour late, the wind howled a gale around the scorer’s table, and Rob lost the toss.

St Brice chose to bat, hoping this would give them the advantage on the new pitch. Eddie Hoyle opened the bowling for Chantilly and got straight down to business – at the end of the first over St Brice were 5 for 2. Madan and Vijay steadied things a bit for St Brice, putting together a partnership of 34 before Richardson clean-bowled Madan for 20. Then the Pretsell boys were brought into the action. Guest player Warren came away with figures of 3 overs for 13 runs and the nomination for loudest player of the year! Brother Lee kept up his personal tradition by bowling a no ball as his first ball. However, this was obviously a cunning ruse to lull St Brice into a false sense of security as, with the next-but-one ball, he took out Samir with a devious LBW and then went on to take 3 more wickets, ending with bowling figures of 4 for 18 off 4 overs. It should be noted however, that, of those 18, nine were extras! Ahem! New boy Kalim Fazal is given a special mention for taking two wickets, as is Oakley Junior who turned a dropped catch into a run out!

So, a great team effort, that included a catch by Nick Sansbury, meant that St Brice were bowled out after only 20 overs with a score of 99, leaving Chantilly needing a ton to win.

After a quick turn around, Lee sportingly allowed brother Warren to open the batting in his place (in fact, the boys were sharing pads and Warren got there first!) with our usual opener Nick S. Warren repaid this kind gesture by promptly running Nick out in the 3rd over (Boycott style) without allowing him to score a run. He did, however, redeem himself by going on to score a respectable 22 before being caught off Dipaish’s bowling.

It was left to the captain, Oakley Senior, to steady the troops and calm the nerves of the tail-enders after Kalim, Hoyle and Richardson were despatched for 19 runs. Oakley junior came to the crease and the captain’s orders were to stay there for a couple of overs and not to worry about scoring. Then the onlookers managed to get the score to stay on the scoreboard for more that two seconds and Captain Rob realised that with a score of 68 and only 5 overs remaining, Chantilly needed to get a bit of a wriggle on.

New orders followed with Jack being told to hit whatever came his way, which he did, scoring a commendable 7 before inevitably falling to a catch off Dipaish. With four overs remaining, Jean-François came to the crease and again, the instructions were sent out – hit everything, run as much as possible, score a run-a-ball and don’t worry about scoring fours. He promptly scored two 4’s and, with a little help from St Brice in the form of a runnable wide in the last over, Chantilly staggered up to 99 with one ball remaining.

It was left to Captain Rob to score the winning run, which he did, with a clean push to deep mid-on. The conquering heroes returned (Ripoche 12 not out, Oakley 42 not out) to rapturous applause from the large crowd of supporters and wry smiles and handshakes from St Brice.

The evening ended with the memorial ceremony and a minute’s silence for Nilesh Patel who tragically died in a car accident four years ago. Jiten handed the winner’s trophy to Rob with instructions to make the most of it because we’d be handing it back next year, and Eddie received a trophy for bowling the first wicket on the new ground. A wonderful curry and a pleasant hour that both teams enjoyed followed the ceremony. The Winds of Change for Chantilly? Let’s hope so, but might it just have been the curry?
