July round up

1st XI
7th July: Vs Park Hill, Cancelled due to world cup final related availability issues for Park Hill.

14th July: Lost to Ottershaw and Hamm Moor by 144 runs. An under strength league XI conceded 267, wickets shared around with Sadam, Ben, Geoff and Sai all grabbing two. The batting failed to fire in reply with Ben top scoring with 27 in our measly 123 all out.

21st July: lost to Spelthorne Sports CC by 125 runs. Very much a case of deja vu despite a significantly stronger 1st XI, Spelthorne’s 243 for 8 included an 87 from Chris Ward with Kunal grabbing 3 wickets and Rakesh and Ben 2 each. Chris H marked his return with yet another 50, carrying his bat for 57* as only 2 other batsmen managed double figures.

28th July: Lost a close fought game to London Gymkhana by 2 wickets. Batting first Corinthians Lost regular wickets in their total of 188 all out, and took regular wickets as Gymkhana snuck home by 2 wickets.

2nd XI

21st July: Lost to old rivals Epsom Methodists by 104 runs. Old foes Mark Johnson 92* and Matt Yelland 57 got the Methodists to 233-5 off their 40 overs. Wickets shared around with Theo, Steve, KP, Santosh and youngster Shreyas with one apiece. A reasonable start in reply (40-1) turned ugly as the 2nds lost 7 for 31 dropped us to (71-8) Santosh was the only real bright spark with a club best 35 not out.

28th July: Lost to St James CC for the second time this year. A poor batting performance saw us skittled for 76 and meant we were never really in the game. Congratulations to Prakhar though to grab his first hattrick which made it a least a little bit interesting as SJCC coasted to a 5 wicket win.

Sunday XI
8th July: Sunday XI (143-5) beat Battersea Ironsides CC (142-9) by 5 wickets, an all round bowling and fielding performance saw 10 bowlers used with wickets for Sunny (2), Santosh, Druva, Ivan and Lalit, Sunny also contributing 2 run outs to the cause.
Omkar Joshi was in the runs again with 72 not out and only a late hattrick from youngster Sam Freestone threatened to derail proceedings.
