Match vs Highwayman & Taverners, Pontcanna

Author: Dave  |  Category: Matches

Following a poor game against GFC Northern were back in action against Highwaymen & Taverners. The game was touch and go at the start with some light drizzle falling in the car park but it would soon brighten up and actually prove quite warm.  Jimmy Vaile lost the toss, as per usual, and we were put into the field.

However unlike the two previous games Northern seemed far more up for it and Ashley Chedzoy taking a wicket in the first over only helped the mood.  A few tight overs from Ashley and Ashish Chatap including consecutive maiden overs really turned the screw.  The H&T #3 was starting to compile an innings but a suicidal run against the arm of Chatap proved costly as Dave Manley took the ball and off came the bails.

Good spells from Dan Perkins and Brett Clarke brought a wicket apiece care of catches from Manley and Barrie Willacott and it was only a late flourish in the last few overs that dragged the Taverners up to a decent score of 86.

Jarryd Wilkins and Chris Baker opened the batting and started promisingly getting Northern well above the run rate with a boundary every over until Baker got caught for 13.  When the change spin bowler came on Snowy crashed him for consecutive boundaries off his first two balls before getting caught for 23 and it was then Northern started to look nervy.  Ashish had faced a few overs for 1 run before being LBW and Jimmy and Ashley both struggle to get going against the spinners.

With the run rate hovering at 4 an over after 14 Ashley took the initiative with a double figures over before getting caught off the last ball of that over but Russell came in and thanks to a misfield the scores were level and and a leg bye clinched the win with 2 overs in hand.

Highwaymen and Taverners become the first time this season that Northern do the double over and we look forward to the next game against rivals the Duke of Clarence who we’ve had a win and a loss against already this season.  Ashley picked up man of the match honours thanks to his top scoring 24 and a good spell of bowling.

  1. Ash Chedz Says:

    Dave, I only bowled 4 overs mate? I dont know whether that makes a difference! I think they got me mixed up with A Chatap, as he bowled 5 overs! So I think my last over in the book need to go to Ashish

    fixed it – just a typo from me
