Match Report

An understrength Midlands team found it hard going at the beautiful Amersham ground.

Electing to bat after winning the toss, in cloudy conditions and on a damp pitch the MCCC were soon in difficulties at 25 for three against the pace of Kulkarni. A counter attack from Howell  (23) of Old Hill and Laeq Chishti (37) of Penkridge who put on 45 in quick time came to a halt when spinner Mohammad claimed Howell  LBW and then proceeded to bowl a superb spell taking  5 for nineteen in 10 overs. Only stern resistance from Khalid (19 not out) and  S Jones,15, enabled the MCCC to reach a total of 120 all out.

As the pitch dried this was never going to test the Londoners although a lively opening spell from Evans of Aldridge, 1 for 22, and a good spell of spin bowling from Pardesi, 2 for 40, and Vernon of Wombourne, 2 for 21 gave the final  result some respectability with a 5 wicket victory for the home side.
