Radlett CC 2nd XI v Flitwick II on Sat 13 Jul 2019 at 13:00
Radlett CC Won by 6 wickets

A match against a side on exactly the same number of points as us looked on paper an awkward tie especially with the First team raiding the 2 for players.
Skipper Tej made Skipper Gurney call incorrectly and decided to field.
A warm but overcast Radlett greeted the teams as they strolled out like Gladiators just before 1pm.
Ross and Aman opened up and Ross, Chip, Chippy was his usual miserly self but Aman bowling from the Pavilion End bowled his best spell of the year so far with pace and hostility and deserved better than his 1 wicket.
Flitwick could not get started and lost Pitkin T to Aman in the second over to a beaut that bowled him neck and crop.
Ross flowed suit soon after by getting the other opener Umlauf caught behind by the returning Jonny Armitage.
11 for 2 after 5
Flitwick could not get the ball away with tight bowling and eventually the pressure told as Hart having survived a caught behind tried to launch Michael Lee into Radlett Station and Troy took an east catch at cover. 40 for 3
this soon became 60 for 4 when Mick again forced Gurney to hit to The Cat and Fiddle but he only succeeded in spooning one for Freddie Wright to take a decent catch.
Flitwick then rallied and Davies and Adams batted sensibly and took the score past 100 but at no more than 3.5 per over .
Tej turned to Ross, eventually realising he had been asked to bowl and he got Adams caught behind by Jonny with the mitts.
Pitkin followed shortly caught and bowled by Archit (which he would reciprocate later!!!) and Tej rang the bowling changes when Davies was caught quite surreally off Archits last ball.
Davies had played a sensible anchor role with good defence and the occasional big drive but he tried to reverse sweep Archit and Jonny with brilliant anticipation had moved 3 steps down the off side to take a good catch from the moddle of the bat. 138 for 7.
Barzilay batting far too low at 9 and Peters tried some lusty blows and took the score to 162 when Troy bowled Peters with a ripper.
The end followed in Mick's 8th over as he got Rashid and Wing caught by the opening bowlers.

178 is not competitive or with Radlett ll you never know.
A decent tea was consumed and Skipper Tej and the returning Alex Cook opened up and slowly and carefully saw off the opening bowlers at just over a snails pace nut keeping wickets in hand. At 17 overs the guys got together and Tej then seemed to play like Ben Stokes smacking Peters for 14 in an over and the drinks break approached but just before Tej fell LBW to Hart. When Tej doesn't argue its out.
Archit came and looked for a time at the crease innings but somehow managed to chip Pitkin S back to him. Worse was to follow as Troy who looked in no trouble then hit a waist high slow full toss straight to Adams and stood waiting for the ground to open up. I have to admit I used to hit these BUFFET deliveries straight to fielders as well. I felt for Swampy Rigg on this occasion.
Debutante Ashil came in and thought he was Jason Roy and batted well until being bowled by Rashid for a good 16.
Enter the Gladiator Jonny who was told by the opposition that he batted boringly.
Oh well one 4 and a massive six ended the debate and a 6 wicket win was achieved.
