Noman Breaks Record

The Cavaliers Sunday XI travelled to Harwich & Dovercourt today.

Having lost the toss the Cavs were asked to bat first, and openers D Smith and N Jalib added 29 for the first wicket in 10 overs before Jalib (8) was trapped LBW. With Smith (12) dismissed in the next over, it fell to P Trivedi and P Sadler to steady the innings with a third wicket partnership of 47 to get the Cavs up to 80/2 before Trivedi (20) was out. The Cavaliers then slipped to 98/5 with E Parry (1) and Sadler (29) both bowled, but an attacking sixth wicket stand of 31 between P Kalra (14) and N Hussain, followed by Hussain adding 27 more with N Davidson (13) saw the Cavs pass 150 before Davidson was out with one over of the innings remaining. It was then left to Hussain (22*) and D Young (5*) to see the Cavaliers up to their final total of 166/7 from their 40 overs.

The Harwich reply started well as their openers saw off spells from N Davidson (3-0-27-0), P Kalra (7-1-38-0) and D Smith (4-0-26-0) on their way to adding 108 for the first wicket. With N Hussain also taking some punishment he eventually had the last laugh, dismissing Abbas for 47 - That wicket taking Hussain past 61 wickets for the year, a new club record! With Hussain continuing as T Mayhew (4-0-23-0) bowled at the other end, the Cavs earned a second wicket through Hussain (8-1-44-2), but an unbeaten third wicket partnership of 41 between Raza (70*) and Barwood (32*) saw the Div 3 champions reach their target after 26.3 overs, with the winning runs coming off the bowling of C Finch (0.3-0-8-0) to condemn the Cavaliers to an eight wicket loss.
