Disappointing End to the (Midweek) Season

The Property Book Cavaliers played Ardleigh in the CECL semi final tonight.
The Cavaliers got off to a good start, taking a wicket with the second ball of the innings through the bowling of J Rawlings. With N Davidson (2-0-26-1) taking a wicket in the next over the Cavs were making good progress, especially when Rawlings (4-0-24-2) claimed another wicket shortly afterwards. The Cavs then turned to J Walton (3-0-19-0) who bowled well while N Hussain (4-0-26-2) attacked, taking two wickets via stumpings by D Young. With J Lawson (2-0-8-1) keeping things tight at the end, Ardleigh were restricted to 109/6 from their 15 overs.

The Cavs added 14 for the first wicket before opener J Corcos (0) was bowled, but his dismissal brought captain D Dellar to the crease. Continuing his form from Saturday, Dellar added 47 for the second wicket with N Jalib (27) before the latter was stumped to leave the Cavaliers on 61/2 at the halfway point. with N Davidson (4) and Dellar (38) dismissed in quick succession (Dellar out via an juggling catch), the Cavs then started losing wickets regularly as M Rackowe (run out for 8), J Walton (11) and J Rawlings (very well caught for 0) were all out to see the score go from 89/4 to 92/7. The combination of N Hussain and J Lawson then saw the Cavs pass 100, reaching 102/7 with three balls of the innings remaining. The dismissal of Lawson (7) then saw T Goodall (0) out first ball as he aimed for a much needed boundary, followed by D Young (0) out first ball while trying to hit a last-ball six to tie the scores. With M Hobb (4-0-17-4) ending the innings with a hat-trick, N Hussain was stranded on 3* as the Cavaliers posted 102 all out from their 15 overs (including two 7-ball overs for the second time this year!), losing by 6 runs.
