Match report Taverners vs Crescent CC


A beautiful evening saw us assemble to play Crescent  (a first division team with six provincial players and tied for first place).Taverner’s had a team stacked with batting talent to the end. Opposition sent in to bat, the first two overs were okay.The opening bowlers Sid and Sudarshan then found their rhythm limiting runs in each of their next two overs. Around 37 after six overs. An LBW decision for Sudarshan brought in Abdul, a young player who has matured tremendously with the bat. Played very patiently with a good array of shots holding his bat to the end. A surprise duo of Vasu and Andrew were brought into the attack, the batsmen had some fun. Anil & Ossie came in to steady the run rate. Ossie seemed unplayable at times. Had Chris fall over twice in an attempted stumping of the batsman. Daniel was given a spell, not having seen him bowl before, he was quite accurate from the start. They lost about five wickets in their 147 total. Sid and Anil opened the batting and made their intent quite clear from the start, scoring 64 in the first five overs. They went on to around 87 before Sid was run out. Sudarshan made a brief appearance, on the loss of Anil, Taverners Were approximately 110 after twelve overs. Vasu and Captain Hein knocked the ball around for one’s and two’s taking very few chances. The game was won in the 17th over.    Once again we were treated to an outstanding meal. Lamb Curry (to appease my brethren from the South American Republic of  Guyana), with rice, lentils and Nan. The lamb was donated by Andrew. A healthy supply of beer, El Dorado 12 year old, XM 15 year old and Glen Levitt 12 year old were heartily consumed on Anil’s relatively new deck. Care to ensure the cushions were not soiled or the wrath of Marnie would befell the culprit. Unfortunately Chomo would be out of action for a while. His call up to the Canadian Volleyball Olympic team was short lived after sustaining a knee injury tripping over the painted line on the way to the court for his first practice. A decision was made to extend our season by one week due to rained out games. On 17/Aug we will play “Eagles” I think. Most likely a 15 over format. Due to construction at Martin’s place along with a previously planned visit to England, the Larry Unrau golf challenge will be played later than usual, details are still being worked out. Will keep you posted. The Bar-B-Q will be held at Chris Emery’s on Friday 9/Sept. The usual invite and contribution list will follow in a couple of weeks.
