More Chig Woe

Chigwell 104 all out Coopersale 105 for 2 Lost by 8 wickets In a match that was almost cancelled on Wednesday due to us being unable to raise a team we were always going to be up against it on Sunday, writes 'Scoop' Davis. We ended up fielding a weak side, particularly on the batting front, where we had only 3 or 4 recognised batsmen. We started half an hour late and the toss took place at 2.20. In a scenario where we could surely only field first Rob O found himself winning the toss with 3 of our team still not on the ground including, his 2 opening bowlers so felt he had no choice but to bat. We struggled to score any runs against a very tight opening attack, one of their bowlers producing figures of 10 8 3 2. After about 20 overs we had 20 odd for 3. Harvey batted very patiently and responsibly for an hour and a half seeing off the opening bowlers but hit virtually the 1st loose ball he received straight to a fielder and our hopes of any sort of competitive score disappeared with him. We struggled to 60 for 7 with Owen scoring 15 at which point they brought on their fifth string bowling attack, coinciding with the entrance of Dom who smashed them all over the place, including a huge six which almost took out two cars in its wake and seeing us through to 100. We actually bowled pretty well, Dom taking one wicket but no joy for Tim on this occasion. Guy bowled fast and accurately with no luck and Sarj could also have had a wicket. Charlie and Brad finished things off, Charlie bowling some very nice off spin and Brad trapping their opener plumb in front just before the inevitable with nine overs to spare.
