Coopersale CC 1st XI v Capricorn on Sun 29 Jul 2012 at 2.00
Match was Abandoned Rain

Match report This weekend saw our old rivals Capricorn come to Coopersale. The forecast wasnt too clever but we had to give it ago. After 2 very late blow-outs it looked as if we would be playing with just 9 players. But a big thank you to Paul and Rod for stepping in last minute.
I lost the toss and because we were short to start with Samir thought it fair to put us into bat first in this 35 over match. I would have fielded first as the wicket look good.We didnt get off to the best of starts,as Phil chased a very wide one and was caught. Graham came to the crease and with Mr Sweeting steadied the ship. Although it was hard getting the ball off the square. Graham reached 51 before being caught in the deep and Sam S made 69 before being bowled. Both great efforts considering. Alan came in and decided the run rate should be increased and set upon the bowling with gusto.Cracking one bowler for 21 in one over!! He was then run out unfortunately and so was Peter, scored a very quick 16. Sam M was left not out on 9 and we had scored a challenging 187.

Unfortunately our bowling was not quite as good as our batting. With all of us guilty of bowling too short and getting punished heavily. Alan opened with Graham. Alan took two very good Caught/Bowled wickets and I got one LBW. Balaji chipped in later with 1 wicket and was bowling well before the heavens opened and we had to abandon the match. Shame because it could have gone either way. Good fielding effort from us though and once again, a big thank you to Rod and Paul for stepping in last minute.

Availability needed for this week please ASAP.
