CCC vs Thoiry – The Rematch

Posted by: webmaster on Monday July 01, 2013 (07:54:56)   (3079 Reads)
On a grey, drizzly morning, with rain clouds around
CCC and Thoiry said “there’s no reason we’ve found,
to cancel this match that might get us wet.
On with the game! The ground’s not flooded yet!”

And so we arrived, at the Apremont fields
Eyes turned to the skies, hoping light rain would yield
As Rob Oakley flipped coins, and won us the toss
Or maybe he didn’t Perhaps the other guy lost!

“We’re batting!” he said, “Heard and Sainsbury, you’re up!”
“Go out and score runs!” “Don’t come back with two ducks!”
Well they didn’t get ducks, but big scores came ‘non plus’
For both men were caught; Heard for 5, Nick for 2.

Hoyle and R.Oakley were in soon enough
But once both had departed, a big score looked quite tough
When Prana and Denzil couldn’t add many more
It had got to the point where we just couldn’t score.

But Shaban showed us all, how it’s meant to be done
With some boundaries and singles, he began to get runs
He made it to 30, before he got caught behind
With the score looking better, and 100 in sight.

And so in came Regan, with an average of 1
He’d had enough of this nonsense, it was time to have fun
He hit the ball far, which felt nice but quite naughty
And before he could blink, he’d made it to 40!

Jean-Francois and Jack Oakley came and went in quick time
Leaving Richardson and Regan to get over the line
But they couldn’t work out when to run and when not
Regan was run out, and that was their lot.

129 all out, not so bad in the end
Something the bowlers might like to defend.
But for now there were other major issues at stake
It was pissing with rain….”oh shit….get the cakes!”

Teas, cakes, and umbrellas, we must have all looked a hoot
Especially all crowded around Denzil’s open car boot
For inside it were goodies of extravagant taste
The cherry and port cake was devoured in haste!
So back to the cricket, Thoiry’s turn to bat
130 runs needed to keep their pride in tact
But Chantilly’s bowlers had made other plans
As Hoyle found an edge straight into Denzil’s hands

The bowling was tight as runs were kept low
Then Shaban and Robin were given a go
They both bowled well too, Thoiry struggling to score
Then Shaban broke through with a nice ‘leg before’

Patrick and Prana were soon given the ball
And wickets started tumbling in no time at all
Heard took 3 off 4 overs, an LB and 2 catches
Shaban and Regan proving catches can win matches.

“Game on” we all said, “We’re in with a chance”
As the Thoiry players started up their rain dance
Robin came back with a nice caught and bowled
Then Regan found an edge that Denzil would hold

The end was in sight, only 3 wickets left
But not many runs were required, don’t forget
Shaban took the ball and the game into his hands
And skittled them out, like only he can

So Chantilly won, (despite Moodley’s 52)
By a margain of 6 runs, not a lot, but it’ll do
That’s six wins from eight, but who’s counting, are you?
We’re not here for the victories, we’re here for the food!
