Winning Margins

Last week's record batting performance against LBV wasn't even close to setting a new record for the largest winning margin;

2008 vs Tendring - Cavaliers scored 250-1 as Danny and Simon both scored hundreds and Darren (6-10) and Stuart (4-24) then knocked over the opposition for 34 to win by 214 runs. Scorecard

2005 vs High Easter - Cavaliers scored 271 with Peter Johnson top scorer with 77 and everyone else chipping in, especially Mr Extras who contributed 45! Tim Berry did the damage with the ball taking 7 wickets for at the expense of just 5 runs to give a victory by 199 runs. Scorecard

Both teams have won by 10 wickets in the past but only when chasing modest totals;

2010 the First XI chased 125 against Great Totham - Simon & Justin knocking off the runs on the day that England lost to Germany in the World Cup in South Africa and everyone was in a rush to get the game finished! Scorecard

2006 the second XI chased Maldon's small total of 94 - Simon and Peter at the crease. Scorecard
