Rain Halts Cavs Charge

The Cavaliers Saturday XI played West Mersea today at the rugby club.

Having lost the toss, the Cavaliers were asked to bat. Openers D Dellar and F Murtaza started the innings well, adding 46 for the first wicket before Murtaza (30 - all in boundaries!) was bowled when padding up to the bowler. Dellar then combined with M Vinter (27) in a second wicket stand of 60, followed by a third wicket partnership of 37 with N Jalib for the third wicket. The Cavaliers had reached 153/2, but the dismissal of Dellar (62) started a 'mini collapse' as Jalib (17) and J Corcos (0) followed soon after to leave the Cavaliers on 154/5. The Cavs then ended the innings well, with JJ Elliston (28*) and Z Ahmed (42*) playing some attacking shots in an unbroken sixth wicket partnership of 79 to see the Cavaliers up to their final total of 233/5.

Sadly heavy showers appeared towards the end of the first innings and continued through the tea interval. Eventually, just before 5pm, the game was abandoned with the Cavs gaining 11pts (6pts for the abandonment, and full batting bonus points).
