Redbourn v Radlett CC 2nd XI on Sat 20 Jul 2019 at 13.00
Radlett CC Lost by 11 runs


Lets say firstly we lost a fantastic game of cricket but why oh why did the Umpires feel we needed to wait until 2.45 to start. Yes it rained but at 2 pm we could have started. Good to see the skippers working together and saying they wanted the game to start.
Tej continued to be a good tosser and won the toss and with a slightly weakened team inserted Redbourn on a still damp slightly sticky wicket (cliché corner) who we knew with Ed Hales would set off like a rat in an aqueduct. He didn't disappoint as he scored 31 in 17 balls before falling to Aman in the 4th over with the score on 42! Mickey Lee replaced Ross for the 7th over and 1st ball got Khalid out caught by Matt Rose at slip. 57 for 2 became 57 for 3 as Matt and Mickey combined again but this was a sensational catch which went fast to Matt's right hand (He is left handed) and in Dwayne Leverock and Gordon Banks style he dived horizontal to remove smaller Hales. 57 for 3 suddenly became 57 for 4 as Aman managed to get ROe to hoik to Mid On and Jasdeep "Geoffrey" held on.
Redbourn bat deep and we knew we had to continue to work hard with only 5 main bowlers. Skipper RIchards and Pritchard too the score to 109 in the 22 nd over when Pritchard was well caught by Matt (again) after Ben had managed to glove the ball up. 129 came and Matt rose took his 4th catch of the match as he caught and bowled Lennox.
Redbourn attacked and Richards and Arnold scored 40 in 5 overs before Roscoe, Chip, Chippy, bowled Arnold neck and crop.
Salter came and attacked before Aman found his edge and Ben Moffatt looked like Shrek as he didn't walk until he thought better of it and the umpire told him to walk young man! 181 for 8 became 181 all out as Aman took a team hat trick, Salter caught Richards Run out and Costa paid the price with a caught and bowled

181 looked about par on the pitch but Redbourn possess some very good bowlers and we knew we had to work hard. Our ground fielding catching and team work had been first class

Tea followed and Tej and Cookie opened up. Alex could not get going and Costa bowled a fabulous line and was brewing up trouble for us. Salter snared Alex who let out a yell as he mistimed a pull and was caught at mid on. Ben came in and with Dad, Uncle, Cousin and Gran watching played a very mature innings as he and Tej tried to see off Costa and score off the others. 48 for 2 when Tej was out and 52 for 3 when Matt Rose was LBW near his box to Darvell.
Jonny Armitage came and became Radlett's Hales as he lost Duncan caught behind by the original Hales cutting and Freddie who went back to a skidder from the skipper.
Jasdeep came and tried to burgle some runs as he and Jonny hit any bad ball Geoffrey for 1 Jonny for 6. We were slightly behind the ball park with WASP showing our chances as 0%.
Jonny went as he was going to caught at Long On for a very good 37 and this brought Mickey and Ross together at 112 for 8.
They played beautifully and ran well despite Ross running 25 yards past the wicket as Mickey turned for 2 to see Ross close to the pavilion. Mickey cut and Ross pulled as we closed in but never got close enough.
mickey and Ross got red ink and we lost by 11 in a well fought battle against a very good side who will certainly win the title.

Great game to watch
