2008 Tue 22 April vs The Gamblers - Intramural

In keeping with the collaborative nature of the Informatics Cricket Committee's workings, here is a match report collated from people's emails smile


We lost. To good opposition. Great weather, though :-). Bowled reasonably (not too bad for NO net practice) - too many extras and 2 bad overs, but other than Amjad no one looked like REALLY taking wickets. Atrocious batting except by Bill (29 not out) and Shehzad (19 in super quick time, but out to one that kept low and dead straight).


We messed it up completely and if not for Bill's effort (29 not out), we would have been wrapped up for less than 40. Gamblers made 121. We scored 72 all out in reply (with six ducks including me and Sujai as well frown ).


A bit of a sluggish early season performance in the field. Gave away a few too many runs, but their guys batted pretty well and 120+ is a good (if not unbeatable) score this early in the season. The only highlight in the fielding was the number of direct hits on the stumps.

In reply, well what can I say. I thought I gave a harsh, but fair lbw against Shehzad. He was down the track a bit, but the ball pitched on the stumps and looked to be trundling on to hit middle and leg. Had it bounced to any degree I could have given it not out and I don't think they would have been too upset if I had anyway.

6 ducks was a problem! Had one or two stuck around we could have had a bit of a tilt at their score, but to be honest I was knackered by the end and could have used someone else to whack a few boundaries. I think we missed Sethu with both bat and ball and could have done with a Dharmesh or Charles as well ideally.
