Bushey v Radlett CC 2nd XI on Sat 18 Aug 2018 at 13:00
Radlett CC Won BY 40 RUNS

Match report A pulsating low scoring game played on a green poor pitch and apart from a nasty incident when Abhay was out played in a good spirit, with a very young Radlett side led well by acting Captain Troy Barrett, with the Maldes at their 372nd wedding of the summer.

Troy lost the toss and was asked to bat and the young opening pair of Abhay Hirani and Alex Cook set off against some good bowling. Alex passed 300 runs since he was last out and it was a surprise when he cut one straight to cover point having put on 34 with Abhay, who was playing some sublime shots. Skipper Troy came in at 3 and looked positive but was cut short at 16 when playing a wild swipe to a widce ball and was snared by the keeper. Enter 18 year old Freddie Wright who along with Abhay looked assured and were frustrating the experienced Bushey side. Abhay was out for 57 right on the drinks break and was subjected to abuse by a few Bushey players who thought he had not payed classic shots. In my opinion this was wrong as he played the opposition, the pitch and the conditions.

111 for 3 very quickly became 139 for 7 as Duncan, Mickey and Hemant went cheaply leaving Jasdeep (Geoffrey) Singh along with the tail. Viresh joined Geoffrey and batted sensibly and well as he added 36 before Geoffrey succumbed meekly chipping to mid wicket. Aman and Viresh batted well and hit the ball hard at the end to get us past 200 with Aman hitting a giant 6.

206 was slightly above par for skipper Troy who said 180 would be a good score.

A sumptuous all vegetarian tea was had by players umpires scorers and fans and Bushey set off at pace trying to win the game. Ross (Chippie, Carps, Roscoe, Ross, Rossy, Fishy) Carpenter and Troy opened up and Troy got an early wicket with the 3rd of 3 consecutive LBW shouts and possibly the worst of them. At 55 for 4 a victory looked assured as Radletts young guns fought hard in the field and bowled well. However a very good 5th wicket partnership took Bushey right back into it until Younus became the first of Alex's 3 catches and a Radlett style middle order collapse took them to 140 for 8, Brown and asif batted well and it took a fabulous catch by Freddie Wright on the long on boundary to remove the dangerous Brown and he also took a good slip catch to remove 11 as Geoffrey snared hos 3rd wicket and secure a 40 run win.

A fabulous team performance
