Horsley & Send Win first match in Indoor Competition

By

Amazing 152 run chase completed in the final (12th) over

We arrived with the gates to George Abbott firmly locked and everything very dark but once allowed in the team were able to warm up and practise not bowling wides or no-balls (3 run penalty), the team were also alerted to the alarming proposition that the par score was around 10 or 11 an over, bowling stats weren't going to look good!
Captain Harry won the toss and inserted Whiteley Village, only later did i work out that their captain and opener Dan Roberts had scored well in excess of 7000 runs over the course of the last 7 seasons with only 1,403 this last season!
Dan and Sean opened and soon it was realised how quickly runs mount up - side wall scoring one run but if the batsmen also completed a run two more were added, so actually a modest shot or an edge was almost always three. Dots balls in such a short format were as rare as they were essential as occasional boundaries would come. Spin was introduced after the 3rd over with Yusuf and Ben. Two aged watchers with a combined age well in excess of our teams' combined age of 100 thought too much spin in the team - but not so as Ben snared first a stumping and then bowled their #4. Whitley's captain had retired on 25 but would come back. Harry himself managed to get a lot of swing in his two overs removing the #3 before Sean and Dan came back to try and stem the tide. Roberts had made 57* in a score of 152 including a hefty 37 wides and 6 no balls.
Was 153 too many? It began to look that way when Sean was run out for 7 ( did the bowler really have the ball in his hands?) but after that some quite magical happened, runs were scored consistently at the required rate, if there was a quiet over the next was a big one. Yusuf was first to be retired then Dan, then Jarred after a quick fire 25 of just 9 balls; then Harry as well - 4 retirements surely a win was coming. Ben came in still with the game to be won and after missing his first decided to resort to the reverse sweep. Yusuf returned only to be run out before Dan came in again to watch Ben move to 21 off 10 to win the match with 2 balls to spare.

To chase down 152 was something to watch, this win was down to a great team spirit and each player having the trust in each other to get the job done. All 6 delivered! Next up "Woking CC" which looked very much like another team from HSCC last night.

PS Ben voted MVP by team
