Tuesday May 17th 2011

The National Twenty20 competition has mostly managed to dodge the recent rains so that the competition is well advanced in all regions. To see details of the 2011 competition click here. The latest version will be posted shortly. There has been some phenomenal batting. Last week I mentioned Sam Mount?s extraordinary series of high scores. Almost as remarkable was the performance of a newcomer ? Year 11 – to the Forest side, Peter McDermott. On the fringes of selection at the beginning of the season, he came in at number four, in the seventh over, on Chigwell?s large ground against Framlingham?s more than decent attack and proceeded to thrash 102 not out from 48 balls. I suspect his place is now secure. His performance was not enough to bring victory, however, with Framlingham overhauling Forest?s 170 for 4 while losing only three wickets.

In the Twenty20 Taunton group there has been a thrilling see-saw of results: Blundell?s defeated Taunton, Taunton defeated King?s Taunton and Queen?s Taunton, and King?s Taunton defeated Queen?s and Blundell?s. Blundell’s have yet to play Queen’s, Net Run Rate calculator to hand.

In a game for whch I did not have space last week, Bedford Modern won the toss and asked Stowe to bat, always a hazardous decision though less so in overs cricket. Ali Birkby and Ben Duckett put on 221 for the first wicket, Birkby scoring 112 not out and Duckett 102. Stowe finished at 248 for one in their 35 overs. Bedford Modern couldn?t quite match the scoring rate, under bowling pressure from Liam Gough (son of Darren) and Harry Martin, and finished at 193 for eight.

Tom Kohler-Cadmore struck his third unbeaten century for Malvern while Winchester?s captain Ollie Mills scored two centuries during the week. Fabian Cowdrey of Tonbridge has scored three this season.

Some cricketers have the knack of taking rare opportunities. At King Edward?s, Bath, Janinder Morgan who is an Under-13 medium-pacer was picked on the morning of the game only because a 1st XI player dropped out. At 122-3 against QEH (Bristol) he was thrown the ball, his debut over going for 10 nervy runs. In the next four overs he returned 4-2-5-5 before having to finish his spell under ECB safety regulations. KES Bath went on to win by seven wickets.

Bancroft’s managed to snatch a thrilling last minute victory. Their 200 total from 40 overs always looked short on a slow wicket and only Nigel Jacob who scored 113 managed to deal effectively with some good Eltham bowling, Eltham did help him, however, by dropping him three times. Eltham’s batting line-up was strong and at 173 for two from 35 overs the result seemed a foregone conclusion. However, five tight overs from Bancroft’s at the end, coupled with vastly improved fielding, saw Eltham finish three short with five wickets down.

Haberdashers? Aske?s registered their fifth win in five games, including a rare win this week at Bedford Modern. Their captain, Tom Edrich (grandson of Bill), led the way, scoring a fine half century (63) and then taking seven for 33 with his off-spin, well supported by their other spinner Ashley Sivarajah (three for 59). There must be something in the air at Habs, for ? following last week?s clutch of hat-tricks (see last week) – they registered two further ones this week in various teams..
