Match Summary:Romany WIN
Romany CC 183-7
Leeds Super Kings CC 68ao
We were very grateful to Alistair Maiden for arranging this short notice replacement game, on a lovely day. The Indian side Leeds Super Kings were our opponents. For a lot of the early part of our innings they had 9 players- we lent them 2 fielders – eventually a 10th player for them arrived. They wanted a 25-overs a side game with everyone bowling and batsmen retiring on 25, so George agreed this.
When we bowled, none on the opposition got going at all – wickets shared around with most bowlers getting one but the stand-out was Keith Egerton with 3 for 4, including two in successive balls. Vee bowled quickly. Highlights were Adam Bowen’s diving caught-and-bowled, and John Surtees’ great catch at the wicket off George to get the last man out – (George’s “Hollywood” dive after a ball had already passed him for 4, was also memorable…). LSK were 68 all out – A pleasant celebratory drink at the New Inn afterwards – a good time had by all… (sadly hearing the closing stages of England losing to Scotland at Edinburgh…)- NH
