PBUK Cavs Collapse

The Property Book Cavaliers played their second CECL match on Tuesday against the reigning champions, The Real Oddies.

The Cavs fielded first and restricted the Oddies to 163/4 from their 15 overs. D Dellar (0-12 from 2), N Hussain (0-11 from 2) and H Kumar (0-9 from 2) all bowled economically, with the successful bowlers being J Rawlings (1-33 from 3) and T Craiston (1-25 from 2). The other two wickets were run outs, with D Young collecting good throws from H Kumar and JJ Elliston for both wickets.

The Cavs reply brought back memories of the 2012 CECL Final against Boxted as a top order collapse saw the Cavs slump to 15/5 before D Dellar (5) and JJ Elliston (5) added 12 for the sixth wicket (the highest partnership of the innings), with JJ hitting the only boundary of the Cavs innings. With wickets continuing to fall, the Cavs were 37/9 after 8.2 overs, T Craiston (7 - the top scorer) and D Young (2*) got the Cavs up to 45 before Craiston jnr was bowled after 13.4 overs - Both batsmen enjoying some time in the middle... The Cavs slumping to a 118 run loss, G Knight claiming unbelievable figures of 4-1-12-6 for the Oddies!
