Pinner Cricket Club Sunday 1st XI v Batchworth on Sun 12 Aug 2018 at 13.00
Pinner Cricket Club Won by 32 runs

Match report Leaving pinner cc last night in the rain and hearing the forecast for today ,I was amazed that we got in a game of cricket today with a combined total of 500 runs being scored and boundaries 4 s and 6s a plenty but thankfully no rain .Barchworth cc a breakaway team from omt cc from Watford were the opposition including quite a few of attendees of merchant Taylor’s school among their ranks.Alan negotiated a toss and it was his team Alan’s angels that he sent into bat first.A miss hit shot from Alan 9 saw his departure at 10 for 1 but fellow opener Malik qadeer was seeing the ball nicely and going for his shots joined by Raahul aggarwal who did likewise with good feet movement.malik was out for 37 7 x 4 at 83 for 2 a partnership of 72 in the 15 th over bringing Kieran carter to the crease .kieran was bowled for 9 and Pinner were 98 for 3 this bought Saif Khan to join Raahul whose aggressive desire to tuck into the batchworth bowling truly erupted.raahul raced to 50 and then incredibly scored his 2 nd 50 in 17 balls raining 4s and 6s all around montesole including hitting 4 in 1 over. Alan retired Raahul out for 103 at 194 for 4 in the 25 th over his innings was 11 x 4 7 x 6 61 balls 91 minutes and was an excellent one.Saif Khan had also tucked in and scored 40 Adam rissen 26 as pinner reached a formidable 261 all out in 3 balls under their allotted 35 .jones 1 ,tiwari 2 ,Watson 1 ,macdonald Barker 1 ,Davis 1 and rawat 2 and run out and retired out saw the 10 pinner wickets fall.Both teams tucked into a Lisa tea before batchworth cc reply began. Nick lawrence opened with Jamie carter and batchworth had reached 42 before nick struck twice to reduce them to 42 for 2 .kinal patel batchworth opener had scored 38 before becoming nicks 3 rd victim at 66 for 3 ..ravinder bassi joined the attack and batchworth had reached 90 then 94 with Ravi taking the 4 th and 5 th wicket. Alan switched the bowling around and that seemed to suit 4 bat tiwari who decided to go full attack and he scored an excellent 72 14 x 4 with a 26 ball 50 and had only faced 38 balls when Alan himself came on and tempted him into a shot he was to regret 169 for 6 and a partnership of 75 was broken finally sadly for the visitors.
yusuf waqar 29 batted well as did rawat 38 not out and a 53 partnership took place for the 7 th wicket till Jamie carter took 3 wickets in the 34 th over and 222 for 7 ,223 for 8 225 for 9 resulted.Alan used 8 bowlers today and the wicket takers were nick Lawrence 3 for 24 ,Jamie carter 3 for 37 runs ,alan carter 1 for 29 runs and Ravi bassi 2 for 38 runs.Batchworth stayed for a drink after and the game was played in a great sporting spirit with pinner winning by 39 runs
