Totteridge Millhillians Cricket Club 4th XI v Northwood Town III on Sat 01 Sep 2018 at 12:30pm
Totteridge Millhillians Cricket Club Won by 9 wickets

Match report I lost the toss, again, but was pleased to be asked to bowl first. We needed 10 points to cement our place second in the league and getting promotion, we wanted 30. Opening the bowling, Bipin struggled to find a consistent line, which was unusual for him, but from the other end Bilawal bowled a miserly 8 overs going for only 11 runs, and deserved more than his 1 wicket. The skipper went wicketless, but his 6 overs cost only 2 runs per over, then the spinners took over. Waqas has the pick of the figures with his 8 overs costing only 11 runs and getting 2 wickets. Rahul also got 2 wickets from his 8 overs including their one dangerous batsman and skipper, caught near cow corner by a running and diving captain. A catch he will always remember. Finally Avi bowled a very tidy and probing spell of 4 overs, getting his first wicket playing seniors cricket at a cost of 3 runs per over. The fielding exerted constant pressure and the team was rewarded with 3 run outs from 3 opportunities. We had their 10 men all out, and consequently the required 10 points. Promotion secured. We had achieved it doing what we do best as a team, bowling first, taking regular wickets with tight bowling backed up by sharp fielding. The catching could have been better at times, and a bit more practise next season would definitely help.
Kamlesh top scored in the run chase with an unbeaten 49, his late season form after a mid-season wobble was a joy to watch, big hitting with a solid defence brought a solidity to the top order. He was supported by the dependable JR, coming in after the skipper was the only TMCC wicket to fall, and ended up with 34 n/o, finishing the match with a 6.
We move out of the regional divisions after gaining promotion 3 years in a row, a new challenge next season under a new captain, and I'm sure renewed vigour.
