CCC vs Lille pt III

Posted by: webmaster on Friday August 23, 2013 (14:41:50)   (5264 Reads)
The third match of 2013 between Chantilly Cricket Club and Lille took place at the Apremont Oval on July 6th, back when the Queen of England had one less grandson, tourists were still travelling to Egypt and most butterflies were still caterpillars! At the time of writing, it is now nearly September, so it goes without saying that some of the finer details of the game may have been forgotten forever. Which means it’s the perfect time to roll out the first ever ‘match report/quiz’. Let’s see how good your memories are…..and if you weren’t there…you’ll just have to guess.

Chantilly batted first in this much anticipated rematch between these two Northern (north of Paris) teams. Chantilly had won the previous two matches held earlier in the year. They were very keen to make it a three-peat!

The openers for CCC were a) Nick Clarke and Patrick Heard b) Rob Oakley and Eddy Hoyle c) Robin Richardson and Jean Francois Neither lasted particularly long, with both batsmen getting single digit scores. The next two batsmen: a) Nick Clarke and Patrick Heard b) Rob Oakley and Eddy Hoyle c) Robin Richardson and Jean Francois, didn’t have much success either, both also getting out before reaching double figures, although credit must be given to Hoyle for at least getting the team’s top score of a) 99 b) 19 c) 9.

The rest of the innings was a mild a) success b) achievement c) catastrophe, with no batsman really getting settled. Wickets fell at regular intervals, severely hindering Chantilly’s chances of reaching a decent score. Jack Oakley fought bravely for his top score of 7 not out though. He looked settled at the crease, with the opposition having no clue how to remove him, but he eventually ran out of a) batting partners b) water c) ideas, and the innings concluded with CCC reaching a) 55 b) 155 c) 255.

The Chantilly bowlers, having become accustomed to defending targets that are barely visible to the naked eye, were not daunted by the task ahead. Early wickets were needed though, if they were to have any chance of victory. Regan, chimed in early with a wicket in his first over; a nice catch taken by Jack Oakley standing behind the a) stumps b) scoreboard c) grandstand Hoyle picked up a wicket in his next over, clean bowling the other Lille opener, and suddenly it was game on! Unfortunately, the next two batsmen found some good form and occupied the a) capital b) crease c) bathrooms for far too long, reaching 28 before the next wicket fell.

When the next wicket did fall however, it marked the beginning of a comeback from the Chantilly team. The bowling change that brought on a) Richardson and Patch b) Shaban and Adrian c) Lee and Denzil, didn’t work immediately, but within a few sharp deliveries, Lille lost four wickets, taking them to 32 for 6. Two wickets a piece went to a) Richardson and Patch b) Shaban and Adrian c) Lee and Denzil, with one of them being the catch of the season by Rob, who made an incredible effort to a) dive to his right with one hand b) leap in the air with both feet off the ground c) jump over the boundary, tap the ball back into the field of play, jump back into the field of play and catch the ball under his chin.

Sadly for Chantilly though, that was to be the end of the wicket taking for the day, as Lille’s number 6 and 8 batsmen cantered to their target of 56 with 17 overs left to be bowled. It was another solid bowling and fielding performance from CCC, just without the runs on the board to make them competitive in this match.

Many thanks to Robin for the a) flowers b) teas c) massages and of course to Sue for once again doing a great job with the a) scoring b) umpiring c) massages

Special mention to Prana also, who surely has overtaken a) Adrian b) Adrian c) Adrian as this year’s favourite to take out the injury award!
