Eversholt v Radlett CC 2nd XI on Sat 07 May 2022 at 12.00 noon
Radlett CC Won by 4 wickets


The day did not begin well when TC woke up with a back spasm and tried to pull out. Skip Rose also had to make a late change with the returning Rob Millard coming in at the 11th hours as Geoffrey was stuck on a plane!!
Arriving at the lovely setting of Eversholt who have returned to our division the team arrives slowly with Rob the last to arrive but he is the first changed in Superman style. Many changes in the side with Kobi "The Junior Junior" making his 2nd team debut alongside Dad Neil making his return to the 2nd team after a number of years producing prodiginy for Radlett and Middlesex. The 2s are missing Barrett, Malde T, Patel Y N(U17), Fielden T, Singh J, Arul C, Francis R, Thapar R and Steven Jennings D from last years last 2 games, In addition Ben Moffatt ha moved to Bucks and Will Wright was carrying drinks for the 1s.

Stand in Skipper Armitage wins the toss and inserts Eversholt and Junior Cornwell finds lift as Ross fine line and Neel shells a sitter but 5 runs later Kobi gets a debut wicket when he pins Garratt LBW. This will be a recurring theme as Umpire Randolph has Steve Bucknor finger!!!! Eversholts best 2 players Barrie and Litchfield score regularly without taking the game away from RCC and at drinks are 108 for 1. AT 122 for 1 the home team look set for a big score but Skip Rose decides to bowl his Ashley Giles deliveries and snares Litchfield and then Barrie is LBW to the dreaded finger and Nicholls goes first ball. Rose on a hat trick next over 3 wickets in an over - 122 for 5 now. Next over Abhijay gets a deserved wicket and Matt on a hat trick runs in and down leg side for a huge wide!!!,

Matt however gets another before the magic moment of the day as a certain 2 is cut down mid track by ALex Liddells rocket throw to Tij. THe tail wags a bit but Junior wraps up the innings

Must mention Rhys Kanbi who bowled beautifully without reward and Alex who fielded brilliantly. Good team performance which reminded me of the game at Hoddesdon last year when a number of regulars where missing.

A splendid tea was enjoyed (Thanks to the Liddells for my healthy contribution). Abhay and Alex opened up and Alex was Bucknored, Rose came in played sone good shots while Abhay was beligerent when needed until he holed out as he approached a Jug and Matt was held behind and waited for the bus to remove him from the field. Neel had accumulated a very good 28 when he too got the dreaded finger. Rob Millard who had scored 6 but had blunted Barrie became victim number 7 of the finger.

The 2 youngsters Abhijay and Rhys batted fabulously to see us through to a great win.

Pressure for places is coming and lets use this for a strong promotion push this year.
