Match 7 (14th scheduled), 2016: July 14

Beamers CC vs Pimlico Strollers CC

Beamers get the better of Strollers batsmen in latest T20
posted: July 15, 2016

Our batsmen were left wanting in our latest T20 clash last night against the Beamers at North Middlesex CC, despite another fine performance in the field. On winning the toss we sent the oppo in and, with numerous bowling options at Gav's disposal, we did a fine job of maintaining pressure throughout the Beamers' innings with a combination of sharp fielding and frequent wickets shared around the attack, led by Tom who, with his lightning caught and bowled dismissal of captain Kyle Pittman for a rare duck, collected a bruising 3-22.

Having restricted the Beamers to 149-8 (a very gettable total) our optomism at the turnaround was short lived with the early losses of George, Spencer and Kashif. Dave, Gav and débutant Abhik steadied the ship somewhat but, in the face of a swinging and turning ball, we were never able to dominate the attack and each fell before they really got started. In the end we limped our way to 99 when, on the last ball of the match, Jonny finally fell. A rather disappointing result although credit must go to the Beamers attack who offered us nothing. The mood was improved by a long overdue post match return to the Belash Indian restaurant — a Strollers favourite — for a consolatory curry.
