Match Report

On a hot and humid day the Conference lost the toss and were asked to bat by the home side. The visitors were soon in trouble with the RAF skipper Iago proving a handful and taking the first four wickets for just 12 runs leaving the Conference on 33 for four. Stout resistance by L Chishti (28), K Diwan (45) and S Khalid (25) and some lusty hitting at the end by Jordan Bulpitt with 26 not out enabled the Conference to recover to 181 for nine at the end of 50 overs.

 

However on a sweltering afternoon this was unlikely to be sufficient to cause the RAF great concern and despite an early wicket for Conference the home side were always in control with Shorthouse (80) and Wray (52 not out) making sure of victory by 6 wickets. The Conference bowlers  toiled  manfully on a flat track and with fielders suffering in the heat the result became inevitable with ten overs to spare.

 

Sadly this is likely to be the last time we play at Uxbridge as we were informed  that the ground has been sold for housing development. We await with interest to know where the RAF will play their cricket in the future.
