Match Report

After heavy overnight rain which seeped under the covers, MCCC were pleased to win the toss and put the home side in to bat. An opening stand of 52 gave CCC a good start but the introduction of left arm spinner Maroof Azam (Penkridge) reduced the CCC to 120 for 6 with Azam taking 4 wickets for just 24 runs in his 10 overs. But a seventh wicket stand between Westphal (77) and Kulkarni (35) of 75, with Westphal scoring his runs off just 60 balls, turned the tide for the London team. With the last three wickets falling for just 3 runs MCCC were pleased to dismiss the home side for 234. However this was likely to prove a difficult target with the pitch increasingly two paced. And this proved to be the case with the loss of an early wicket before Alex Phillips (Knowle & Dorridge) 29, and Abdullah Awan (Moseley) 16 improved the situation. But the loss of Awan and Attiq Chishti in the same over followed shortly by the dismissal of Phillips, meant that Jamie Harris (Halesowen) and Laeq Chishti (Penkridge) had an uphill task against some very tight bowling and fielding. The loss of Chishti for 29 left Harris to almost battle alone and his 42 was top score with the tail subsiding quickly and MCCC were all out for 166, with Afghani spinner Ahmadzai taking three for 16, losing by 68 runs. Although a heavy loss the game was most enjoyable and always competitive.
