CCC vs CC St Brice

Posted by: webmaster on Saturday June 14, 2014 (13:13:25)   (4395 Reads)

The start of the 2014 season has been a challenge for Chantilly Cricket Club following the departure of the 1 or 2 stalwarts and the temporary absence of 2 or 3 or 4 others. And so it was that, for the traditional first game of the year against our partners in crime (some regard Chantilly’s cricket as a crime, at least), we turned up apologetically with 7 players and requested to borrow 4.

It’s been decided that after 5 years, this will be the last match specifically in memory of Nilesh Patel, but the goal in the future is still to open the season with CCC vs CCSB.

And so the 2014 campaign started with this T20, a little after 4 o’clock, with Rob Oakley traditionally losing the toss and CCSB traditionally choosing to bat. Rakesh and Mayur opened for St Brice against the bowling of Hoyle and Fazal. Records are fairly scant (and memories are dim, at the time of writing) of the St Brice innings but it’s clear that no batsmen were really in any serious trouble. Mayur was replaced by Jignesh who top scored for CCSB with 39.

It should be noted that Jack Oakley picked up 3 stumpings, 1 off his dad and 2 off the bowling of Nick Sansbury. Whether this was down to Jack’s cat-like reflexes or some element of St Brice self-sacrifice is now a question of individual memories. I’ve talked to Jack since and apparently it was the former.
Regular readers will already be alarmed to read that both Rob Oakley and Nick Sansbury bowled. This was not because they had been practising hard over the winter and had a point to prove, but just proof that many Chantilly bowlers were not present today.

St Brice finished on 155 for 6 off their 20 overs, which was a useful total given the lush outfield and occasional shower.
The Chantilly innings started steadily enough with Sansbury and Hoyle opening. Sansbury was run out for 15, Hoyle bowled for 14. There was no tumble of wickets but the run rate could never get above 3 or 4 an over.

The end of the Chantilly innings finished in the rain, having settled at a run rate of 4/over, but without conceding enough wickets to bring the St Brice replacements to the crease. Kalim Fazal and Jack Oakley were there at the close with Chantilly at 80 for 5.

After the game, as has become the tradition, curry was provided by the families of the St Brice players – and excellent it was too. A minute’s silence was observed for Nilesh, a few words were spoken by Jiten and the trophy was handed over, for the last time, to the victorious captain.

So, after 5 years, Chantilly have won only the once (how we savoured that victory!). Congratulations go to St Brice for the other 4 wins.

For CCC now, on to the next games and their biggest challenge of 2014 – finding 11 available players.
