French Cricket

Francois hit the winning run at the end of a dramatic chase in a low scoring match at Old Chigs against Woodford Green on Sunday. His skipper looks rather pleased too.

Rob-francoisEarlier, Chigs had lost the toss on a hot Sunday afternoon but dismissed Woodford Green for 135 before enjoying a splendid Wiskin tea. After this feast, the top order batsmen failed, leaving the innings on the edge of the abyss, at 18-5.

Aqeel and Nick manage to scrimp runs at the modest pace required until the last hour. Richard and Gremlo contributed some solid biffing until Francois joined Nick with a handful of overs left and nine runs needed. A pressure-relieving boundary, a brace of twos and a final scramble over the finish line meant that Chigs next week begin their belated league campaign unbeaten.  Allez!
