Match 4 (10th scheduled), 2016: June 15

Archway Ladder CC vs Pimlico Strollers CC

Archway successfully climb long ladder to see off Strollers
posted: June 16, 2016

Sadly not even a spectacular 90 from Dave 'The Kitten' Couldrey could save us from defeat to the Archway Ladder at Alexandra Palace last night. With the help of Tim, who hit a fine 40 before snicking one behind, we were able to post an impressive 177-5 from our 20 overs, with Couldrey lofting the ball to all corners with seemingly evermore ease.

However with only six regular Strollers in our line-up, augmented by Yogesh — guesting from the Hiccs — and a couple of surplus players kindly donated by the oppo, we were unfortunately unable to assert ourselves in the field as the large gaps were found all too frequently. Nevertheless, Sam impressed with his economy and Shani shone with a sharp spell that probed the Archway batsmen's nerve. But with Patel hitting an unbeaten fifty and the rest of the Archway top and middle order cashing in at the expense of an under-strength bowling attack, we finally were beaten after 17 overs. A good game nonetheless and our thanks must go to the opposition for sportingly helping us to get the game on.
