Chigwell wins the Ashes

Chigwell crushed the Beamers today at Patcham Place. After posting what seemed like a less than par 182, Chigwell bowled out Brighton Beamers for 65, to win the Ashes trophy after four years without a result.

Cunningly, Niall Chafey left the urn on his mantelpiece, so we didn't actually get our hands on it. Put it in the post, Niall...

Islington cricketers banned after smashing the window of a Porsche

Our cricketing friends, Pacific CC, have run into a spot of bother...

We hope they will be able to overturn this ridiculous decision by Islington Council before the new season.

New Year Statistics

After seeing Hans Rosling's brilliant BBC 4 programme, The Joy Of Stats, I thought I'd try my hand at charting some Chigs batting stats. Here is the result.

Each player is represented by a blob. The size of the blob represents the total runs scored by the batsman during the season. The colour of the blob shows how many 50s the batsman scored, ranging from none (dark blue) to four or more (red).  The vertical axis shows a player's batting average, while the horizontal axis shows how many matches the player played in a given year. There are only two years of data at the moment - 2009 and 2010. You can view each year by moving the slider or clicking the play button at the bottom of the chart. Rolling over the blobs reveals the name of the batsmen; clicking on them keeps them highlighted. Clicking on a player and then pressing the play button will display a trail from earlier to later years, showing how a player has developed. Click and drag to select an area for zooming in. You can also play around with the chart, changing the statistics on each dimension as you wish.

Awards 2009/2010

Congratulations to all who won awards for the last two seasons cricket at our annual dinner last Friday at Aurora Soho.
If you weren't there to enjoy the fun, the awards went like this: 2009 Champagne Moment (re-classified to a Cava moment due to the double-dip;-) went to James Sibley's catch which took us to league victory in the nailbiting decider v Mayfield last year. The booze was awarded to the whole squad who quaffed it without delay even though it was room temp! 2009 President's Cup was awarded to Mr Dave Colwill for scoring a billion runs when it counted!
Champagne moment for 2010 was awarded to Bradley Davis for his hard won debut half century v 9KBW in the bank holiday Imran memorial game.
This years President's Cup was awarded to Robbie Orange for his excellent contribution as part of the formidable 'spin twins', as well as for his solid and dutiful vice captaincy, decent batting and superlative catching!
Well done to all who won and all who played or supported or enjoyed the club in any way over the last few years.... Bring on next season!
