Hillingdon CC v St Albans Cricket Club Sunday 2nd XI on Sat 20 Sep 2014 at 12:15
St Albans Cricket Club Lost

Match report You'll go a long way to find a pitch as bad as this - green. lumpy and wet it was a case of wear a lid and keep your fingers crossed when batting .

Fielding first we started well , opening bowlers Jimmy McEwan and Amit Rajani giving nothing away. Jimmy made the early breakthroughs with 3 quick wickets (one a brilliant low catch in the slips from Andy Knill -Jones) in his 6 over spell finishing with great figures of 6-3-12-3.

Spinner Steve Booth and Andy Knill Jones came on to continue the good bowling both taking wickets with AKJ notably recording stunning figures of 7-3-6-2.

Andy Saunders and Todd Houlahan came on and both bowled decent spells, chipping in with a wicket apiece before the opposition tailenders started hitting out, eventually pushing their total to an above par 128.

Special mentions go toHarry Knill-Jones whose keeping was exemplary in very difficult circumstances and for Ciaran Walsh too, whose bowling improves with each game he plays .

Our batting was , well, to be expected on this pitch - darkening skies, a damp, corrugated wicket , the ball bouncing crazily with each delivery - it wasn't easy, put it like that ....Suffice to say we stuck around for as long as we could but really we were onto a loser before we started . Nobody managed to reach double figures and eventually we were dismissed for an even 50 as the autumnal gloom descended over Uxbridge.

For most of us our last match of the season - see you next Spring !
