Saturday Results Round Up

A mixed bag of results yesterday with wins for the 3rd and 4th teams, a disappointing loss for the 2nds and weather intervening for the 1sts.

At The Strand the Cavaliers were asked to bat first and quickly motored to 257 for 8 before declaring after 43 of their 50 overs.  With some showers about this looked a prudent decision and gave the visitors the

best chance of getting a result.  Bowling honours went to Andy Simkiss with 5 for 75.  The reply was always a struggle and after consulting the rule book the match was deemed to be abandoned due to time constraints with the score 169 for 9 after 43 overs.  Having been on the rough end of things in similar circumstances against Clifton Village in their first game of the season, the 1sts benefited from the rules this time around to collect 10 points from the game
and remain in 9th position in the NPL.


There was a surprising second consecutive defeat for the 2nds at lowly Southwell.  Invited to bat first in a game reduced to 42 overs the hosts, riding their luck at times, slipped quickly into gear and then cruised to 198 for just 2 wickets.  The opening pair of Rich Henson (48) and Gordon Airey looked well in control putting on 62 for the first wicket before something of a car crash as they slipped to 93 for 5.  Chris Allcoat (34) and James Hallam (20) put together a good partnership to restore some hope before things fell away again and the innings closed 50 runs short.  Next up are second placed Keyworth and hopefully a return to winning ways to move back up the table from their current 4th position.

The unbeaten 3rds marched on with a 3 wicket win at Clifton Village in a low scoring game.  Putting the hosts into bat it took less than 30 overs to see them skittled for 88 with Arjun Sandhu again among the wickets with 4 for 10.  Colin McConnell lead from the front in the reply with an unbeaten 39 as 7 wickets went down in surpassing the total in just 18 overs and resulted in a full 20 points and a healthy lead at the top of Division J.

The 4ths also recorded a win against Belvoir at Long Lane.  Restricting the opposition to 134 for 7 from a reduced 40 overs the star of the show was, once again, Carl Knight as his unbeaten 90 took us past the target with 3 wickets and less than two overs to spare. Carl has now scored 399 runs in the league from only 4 completed innings for an average of 99.75 - our very own Bradman! Just for good measure Carl also picked up a couple of catches and a couple of run outs!
 The 4ths remain top of Division M.
