Barnes Common CC 2019 season : Played - 15 , Wins - 12 , Lost - 3 , Rained off - 1
Debutants - Johnny playing his first full game after a 2 year break . Toss - Lost by BCCC captain.. but did end up batting first anyway . Pitch - Made Barnes Common's pitch look like Lords!
Weather - Nice
BCCC batting - Not feeling very inspired so basic facts were that EE were a very weak side in fact the weakest we have played for a long time. Two centurians of note were Nik who took his time but finally got to his 1st century of the season and was retired out on 101. The other being Zef who got to his 4th century of the season much quicker than Nik and was also retired out on 109. Ash scored 28 opening the innings . And both Varun and Jonny played some attacking shots to score 19 and 27 quick runs to help BCCC reach a total of 303 in 40 overs . We could have scored 400 if we had got a move on ...
Stand out bowler for EE was Simon Gundry who took a five wickets with figures of 8-0-27-5 .
Energy Exiles batting - Less said the better as they were all bowled out for 70 in the 22nd over. Good bowling by all BCCC bowlers who ended up with a 1 or 2 wickets apiece. Stand out bowlers for BCCC - generally all bowled very well .
Bowling figures :- Hamza - 4-0-15-1 , Abi- 4-1-8-2 , Johnny - 4-1-11-1 , Adi - 5-1-23-2 , Graeme - 3-0-5-1 , Ash - 2-0-6-2 .
Conclusion - We need to ditch getting games via conference as it seems to be a lottery on what one gets and we should try to fill up our fixture list with regular teams of a decent standard .
Man of the Match - Nik for his 1st century of the season . Well done. Catch of the match - A great return catch by Abi taking it low on his left in his follow through .
Shots of the day - Some exquisite cover drives by Nik
