Northwood v Radlett CC 2nd XI on Sat 17 Aug 2019 at 13.00
Radlett CC Lost by 56 runs


We turned up after a rain fest and the pitch at Northwood looked fabulous and we bowled really well with a slightly weakened bowling attack.
Freddie Wright was the pick of the bowlers and Chris Gallagher bowled sensibly especially at Nurresh, who really should not be playing this level. He is far too good to be playing at this level and could grace the Radlett 1st team easily.
He set off at a gallop and raced to 50 before Gallers got him slogging.
The young Aussie Evans batted well to get 40 and Tej took a magnificent catch when he and Alex Cook went for a skier, Tej called slipped, pirouetted did the splits did the springboard dive and finally ran round to catch Sharples.
Mention in the field for Alex Liddell who fielded well on debut and will have easier games in the field in years to come.
Duncan took a good stumping and 223 to win was about par but we had to deal with Nuresh.
Matt Rose also bowled really well and debutante Fareed bowled well but saw the difference in 2 and 3s cricket. He could be useful though

In truth we didn't but I have to say Umpire Bassill looked poor and not up to iy. He gave three LBW to Nuresh 2 to left handers both 6 foot 2 hitting them on the thigh pad or too
p of pad. Harry Will also given LBW on gthe top of his extra long pads and he is 6 foot 3.

I hate criticizing Umpires but you have to think about Right Arm over wide of crease to left hander it must pitch oiutside the leg stump. 5 ball overs with not reviewiing with the other umpire.

Having said that Northwood deserved to win and despite good cameos from Freddie, Fakir and Duncan, no one could stick long enough with Alex Cook to use the overs and then we would have won.
Alex Cook batted beautifully for a 59*.
