M&B had a resounding 111 run win over local neighbours,
Braywood on Sunday. Skipper Armstrong had no hesitation in batting upon
winning the toss. Openers William Cunliffe and Sachin Moudgil took full
advantage of the opportunity to build a very sold platform and set the
tempo for the innings. 87 in 12 overs was a very nice start, immediately
putting Braywood on the back foot. Both openers carried on from the
previous day, albeit Moudgil was batting down the order for the 1's,
whilst compiling 21no. As always he was extremely strong on the leg side
but he did score fluently all round the wicket. Alas it was Sachin's
predilection for the leg side, as he tried to turn a straight delivery
to leg instead of hitting back past the bowler, resulting in a leading
edge lobbing tamely up to the fielder.
Cunliffe though very much carried on on auto pilot, after his 60 in
40 overs the previous day. Courtesy of William Western-Kaye dropping
out at the last minute, Cunliffe took his opportunity with both hands to
continue his late season rich vein of form, which will hopefully spill
over to the last three weeks of the season. As always he was strong on
the drive and was quick to put the short ball away. With a big century
there for the taking Cunliffe was bowled by the mystery spin of Russell
for 82 in the 26th over. Prior to Cunliffe's demise no. 3 Yusuf Qureshi
played a strange innings of 2 in as many overs. With the field spread he
decided to take them on and was stumped playing a wild swish, more akin
to the Grim Reaper, than a talented batsman. In the end it was his loss
as every batsman got in and made a score. After getting out Qureshi hit
the snake bites, after his shot one wonders whether he had been on the
snakebites all morning?
Brian Dixon, Ben Ward and Amit Giri all scored in the 40's in their
own inimitable way to lift M & B to an imposing 275 from their
allocation. Dixon was quick to use his feet against spinners and was
good on the drive and cut. Ward as always was strong on the sweep, slog
sweep, cover drive and cut. Using his feet against spinners could be an
objective for the winter nets though, as many times he was hampered
playing from the crease instead of getting out of his crease. Mr Giri
used the last 7 overs for his leg side biffery to the tune of 44no, of
which about 2 were on the offside. We have a more productive Barry Wykes
on our hands, with less grey hair though.
275 was a daunting target for Braywood, which proved even more so
as opening bowlers Arul" birthday boy" Appavoo and Mr Giri made early
inroads into the Braywood batting line up. Russell played back to
Appavoo and was castled middle stump, as the ball angled in slightly.
Mabs Hussain got an unlucky inside edge and was castled, as were
McDermott and Hayes. Mr Giri was removed forthwith from the attack, for
ruining the game, figures of 4/0/16/3 was not what was required ! From
that moment it was just a question of damage limitation and whether
Braywood captain, Nikel Jataveeden could emulate last year's century or
not. Sunday regulars Chris Butler and Atif Amin reacquainted themselves
with the bowling crease but failed to trouble the wicket column. Ginger
Tom, apparently having a strop - presumably for not having a bat, unless
it was that time of the month, managed to summon up the stamina and
interest to deliver 7 overs of assorted spin and account for the two
leading Braywood run scorers. Mulley junior with a well flighted offie
which hit middle and off and the prize wicket of Nikel(fellow Amazon
employee) who clipped a ball to Moudgil at mid wicket to depart for 44.
The Braywood innings finished rather tamely on 164 for 7, although
Qureshi did mange to redeem himself, to a degree, by bowling four quick
overs and claiming the scalp of colt, Gray, with a well directed
Spring is approaching us and the promise of summer…
