Old Owens II v Totteridge Millhillians Cricket Club 3rd XI on Sat 09 Jun 2018 at 1pm
Totteridge Millhillians Cricket Club Lost by 15 Runs

Match report First of all, played Neil and Rambo – a fantastic partnership of over 100, salvaging our innings from the depths of 65-6 and leading us into a nailbiter with genuine panic in the OO’s ranks, as they kept up with the asking rate for over after over after over.

Second of all, well bowled and fileded everyone (step forward Thiru), even if we yet again let the oppo off the hook from having them on the rack. They too were 60-odd for 6 as all the bowlers chipped in aided by some top catching. Anpan’s first act on moving over from mid-wicket to extra cover (at Steve’s instigation) was to hold on to a stunning one-handed diving effort. Stewie, not keeping, as he felt and looked, pretty ill, also took a good ‘un at extra. Neil took a couple as ever, including a sharp low one at slip, off Rambo. Again Steve claims the assist as he suggested the field change!

But lose we did and we need to turn this season around. With a strong attack, three seamers, three spinners, we failed to press home our strong advantage. Credit to the OO’s batsmen who put together a mirror image of N&R’s stand, over 100, but this groundhog day scenario is a massive source of frustration. We kept up our record of bowling sides out, as we have done in every completed game this season, but lost.

Neil made 76 and batted from over 2 to over 47, playing admirably straight and patiently. Arun Rambo (69) overcame a slightly iffy start with lots of big swishes of his new wonderbat to play superbly square of the wicket on either side, and ran aggressively to turn lots of 1s into 2s. A wet outfield, after persistent rain, meant lots of 2s were run and 4s were in short supply. Anpan hit a few handsome shots to add to his catch, while Steve also pinged a couple of 4s but holed out to mid-wicket with 20 needed. Pride restored but more people have to bat better than they are doing!
