Northwood v Radlett CC 2nd XI on Sat 21 May 2022 at 12.00 noon
Radlett CC Won by 8 wickets

Out onto Northwood to meet Neeru (without doubt the best player in this league) and his boys and Matt calls incorrectly and Northwood elect to bat. Neeru hit 150 the week before and started of with 2 glorious off drives and we all thought off he goes again until Kobi gets one to jump and find the back of Neerus bat and the welcoming white gloves of Johnny does the rest and Neeru departs for 13. 20 for 1 becomes 20-3 as Chippy gets Reeve and Sharples in 2 balls. Kobi and Fishy share wickets and its 28 for 5. Just like the week before we dont go looking for the magic ball but allow the wickets to come to us and after a good partnership between AAditha and Charlie Moore the evergreen Badger Deadly Zeddley (Zahur Gitay) snares Aaditha caught at long on by debutant Tom Smith.
MAtt sensing cheap wickets brings himself on and 74 for 6 becomes 75 for 7 as Baron is LB W and he repeats the feat at 88 when Eddon is shown the upraised digit. 91 for 9 as Moore is run out and a good10th wicket partnership is ended by the returning Kobi who gets the obdurate Mackey for 12.
123 all out and we are thinking WOW

The most amazing tea is eaten and drunk.

We need to survive Neeru's opening spell and Matt and Alex defend well but punish anything loose and Neerus opening spell is seen off and Rosey and ALex in their contrasting styles see us to 57 when Alex is undine by Sharples , Enter newbie Tom Smith who looks good until Eddon gets one to lift and he is out.
Grandad of the team Neel Malde enters and looks imperious and he and Matt take us through to an 8 wicket win. This is unusual against Northwood as we are normally involved in very close games/.

MOM Skipper Matt Rose again
TFC YAsir The Colonel Mughal - This is 2s cricket and tom turn up 5 minutes before the start is not acceptable especially as we are fielding. HAving said that one did wake up e made some brilliant stops and worked hard for the team
