Week 7: Round up from MCCL games

20 Jun 2021

The senior teams got back on track this weekend with two wins, a winning draw and a losing draw. A decent 28 point haul.

The 1st XI travelled to Wycombe House where three seamers (Saad Malik, Sachin Patel and Hashim Hussain) bowled 48 excellent overs between them and took 8 wickets, restricting Wycombe House to 167-9 (55). In reply at 55-3 it looked to be turning into a tricky chase until a very mature innings from U17 Aaryan Patel (61 not out) and a captain's 57 not out at a run a ball from Sachin, combined in a century partnership to see us comfortably home. We stay third in the league but have closed the gap to the top two teams. (10 points)

Skittled out for 128 in 41 overs, a partnership between Riten Chauhan and Abdulwasey Mohammad gave the 2nd XI some hope on a pitch that offered plenty of help for the seamers. Excellent bowling from Sumit Saroha (5-28) and Kevan David-Joseph (3-17) saw Southgate collapse to 50-6. With rain closing in Irtiza Bangash picked up 2-7 to finish the job, moving us up to 5th in league. The bowlers were aided by some excellent wicket keeping, including two stumpings from stand in keeper Kavidu, covering for the absent Dwij. (12 points)

In the timed format, if you can't win then make sure you don't lose. The 3rd XI did just that as they battled to a draw at home to Ealing. The visitors put in a very strong batting performance to score a well above par 237 in 48 overs. In reply, despite a fighting 81 from Krish Nanavati, no other batsmen passed 15 and Ealing will probably rue the extra overs they batted, as we hung on for a point at 154-8 and stay in the promotion race.

A winning draw for the 4th XI away to West Harrow as they kept alive their hopes of promotion this season. Sunil Arora's 70 was the cornerstone of our innings as we struggled to 168 all out in 35 overs. The pitches at West Harrow aren't usually the best so these were probably still enough runs. And so it proved as the home team were left on 144-7 at the close, with not enough time left in the game to force a win for either side. (5 points)
