Old Finchleians II v Radlett CC 3rd XI on Sat 21 Jul 2012 at 13:00
Radlett CC Won by 15 runs

Match report We played away at olf finchlieans who were second from the bottom so a good oppotunity for 30 points.Radlett had an exeptionally young side with captain Mike Crocker being the oldest at just 25. Radlett lost the toss and were put into bat on a very green, damp wicket and a very slow long outfield. We started slow and although not looking in any trouble it was just hard to score. Pressure built a bit and we lost a few wickets with nathwani deserving more for his 21. At drinks (27) we were 49-3 with Rawal and Cook looking settled. Both Batsmen looked like they were going to be there all day as they started to open up and play some lovely shots until Rawal was brilliantly run out for a classy 24 on a tough wicket. Radlett managed to get up to 127 - 10 from 51 with Cook hitting a wonderful 40*.

Radlett fully believed that 120-130 was enough and it proved right as after a good start from old finch (30-0 off 10) Nathwani rippd through the finch batsmen with a remarkable 7 - 38, taking a hat trick which completely turned the game. Alex Cook supported Nathwani at the other end picking up figures of 6 overs 3-6. Old finch put on a last wicket stand of 30 before Nathwani took the last and vital wicket, radlett winning by 15 runs.

A great win for radlett and an amazing achievment for such a young but extrememly talented radlett side. The future looks bright for radlett. Man of the match could easily have been alex cook but for his 7 wickets and hat trick there was only one winner, Shamit Nathwani..
