Tough one – but we won it!
No shaking in your cricket boots, fellas.
That’s another we won, making it 11 out of 15 !
This time, Gurdeep is Man of the Match, with 2 wickets taken and 25 essential runs. Captain Peter (21 runs, 1 stumping) and him put on a match-defining partnership of 48 runs to rescue us from the jaws of embarrassment.
Danny and Abdullah got the final word for a 2-wicket victory.
Of course, our bowling attack had prepared a good path, getting Thoiry all out for 95, but you can never be sure of what you’re facing. Especially when you’ve got serious doubts about an opposition bowler’s action. But we know our own: our youngsters were on fire – check their bowling stats – and Shahid got his FIRST EVER CATCH (beautiful take on a skier at wide mid-on) to get rid of the Thoiry danger man!
And judging by the way they’re helping us, we’ll keep using wonderful Oxbridge Magna balls..
