Pinner Cricket Club Sunday 1st XI v Metropolitan on Sun 28 Aug 2016 at 14.00
Pinner Cricket Club Lost 20 runs

Match report Leaving my house today and drizzling with rain I was uncertain we would get a game in today and asking weather reports it was not what I'd hoped to hear.Both teams turned up and a heavy shower at 12 40 pm saw a scramble by the players to take the covers on the pitch.After 25 minutes rain stopped and despite blackening skies play started at 1 10pm with metropolitan cc winning the toss and electing to noel opened down the hill and off his allotted 6 overs bowled an excellent spell conceding only 9 runs it was by far the best I'd seen him bowl.varun singh took 2 early wickets and a disastrous run out in maisons first over ,Wayne Maher Took 3 Quick Wickets To Reduce Metropolitan To 34 For 6 After 12 Overs Of The Agreed 30 Overs Per Team and Metropolitan Were Facing A Drubbing. However 2 West Indians decided to attack pinners bowling and dropped Catches were ultimately to prove costly for pinner.raymond palmer at 7 hit 88 in 55 balls striking 9 X 4 3 X 6 with lower order batsmen digging In metropolitan with a 51 run partnership for the 10th wicket reached 161 all out in 29p 2 overs a highly unlikely total after being 34 for 6.varun singh took 3 for 36,Wayne maher 4 for 25 a run out and ravi pandya 2 for 46 took the home team bowling honours.andrew maher opened with Wayne maher his father over from Australia and Andrew was bowled early to bring kieran carter to the crease who after hitting a boundary also had his stumps struck in the very same over.At 63 for 3 off 15 overs pinner were behind the target but remember metropolitan had been 34 for 6 after 12 overs.Alan carter scored 39 ,Wayne maher 14 (given lbw by son andrew), ravi pandya 30 tino mahendram 18 but all were out as keen bowling and fielding saw the visitors run out 20 run winners as pinner perished for 141 in 29 pt 4 overs.The game was played in a good spirit and it was the innings of brutal hitting by Raymond palmer that ultimately gave his team A Great boost to give our visitors the chance to be victorius.lisa noel prepared her usual fantastic teas,no rain interrupted the game after the early flurry and a good game of cricket resulted
