Season Ends in Defeat

The Cavaliers 2017 season ended in a trip to Galleywood for the Sunday XI today.

After winning the toss the Cavaliers fielded first, claiming an early wicket through B Prabhu (9-0-44-1) while fellow opening bowler N Davidson (8-0-44-0) went wicketless. With catches and close chances being missed, Galleywood piled on the runs, with S Riaz (9-0-40-0) also unlucky to not make a breakthrough. A turning pitch with variable bounce gave U Ghani (9-0-32-1) the chance to take a wicket, while P Kannan (5-0-35-0) closed out the innings. Galleywood scoring 211/2 in their 40 overs.

The Cavaliers reply saw openers K Chowdhury (2) and R Akhlaq (2) dismissed early, but a 57 run partnership between N Jalib and T Janganan saw the Cavs up to 74/2 before Janganan was caught for 14. A further 81 runs were then added by Jalib with B Prabhu in 16 overs before Prabhu (50) was bowled after a controversial innings. With Jalib still at the crease and P Kannan with him, the score progressed to 191/4 (with a rain break in between) before Jalib (92) was run out for his best score for the Cavaliers. A familiar Cavaliers collapse then saw N Davidson (1) caught behind, D Young (1) run out, S Riaz (1) LBW and C Finch (0) run out! the Cavaliers going from 191/4 to 199 all out after 39.1 overs, with U Ghani not batting as he was absent (he left early), leaving P Kannan (26*) as the not out batsman.
