Southern Cavaliers Cricket Club 1st XI v Challengers Cricket Club on Sat 09 May 2015 at 11:00 AM
Southern Cavaliers Cricket Club Won by 2 runs

Match report After a disappointing performance against Washing Hurricanes in our 1st league game last week, Southern Cavaliers were determined to make amends against Challengers CC.

SCCC won the toss and elected to bat 1st. At 75 for 3 after 15 overs, we were well placed to push on to 250 but a series of poor shots and what some may call a few unusual umpiring decisions, we were bowled out for 138 in 27.3 overs. With the long grass on the outfield and the never-say-die attitude of our bowlers and fielders, we felt we had a good chance to defend the total.

A couple of early breakthroughs by Stu Sheahan and Brian Barrie had the opposition 32 for 3 by the 7th over but they then batted very sensibly and aided by 3 dropped catches at point, reached 120 for 5, with 2 very settled batsman at the crease. SCCC always felt if we could open up one end then we could run through their tail. Craig Browne was bought on to bowl and enticed the opposition captain to slog to the boundary, only to be excellently caught by Paul Woolf. This opened up the end we needed and 6 wickets fell for the addition of only 16 runs. SCCC won by 2 runs to register our 1st win for the season.

Excellent performances from:

Stu Sheahan : 30 runs
James Watt: 30 runs
Anmol Anand: 13 runs
Stu Sheahan: 3 for 39 in 8 unchanged overs to knock the top order over
James Watt: 4 for 16 in 4 overs to mop up the tail
Brian Barrie: 2 for 21 in 7 very tight and penetrative overs
Craig Browne: 1 for 7 in 2 overs with the vital wicket of the opposition skipper

Congrats to James for winning man of the match. Could and maybe should have gone to Stuart Sheahan…
Onwards to next week for a brutal double header weekend.
