Coggeshall Cause Cavs Collapse

The Saturday XI hosted Coggeshall III today at Mill Road.

After a heavy downpour caused a delayed start, the Cavaliers fielded first after losing the toss in a 35 overs-a-side contest. The Cavaliers started well, with D Young claiming a cath behind off the bowling of F Munir to make the score 10/1 after 5.2 overs, but Coggeshall recovered to 38/1 as S Riaz (5-1-35-0) conceded 26 runs from his last two overs. His replacemnet in the attack, N Davidson struck with his first ball of his spell while Munir (8-6-9-2) concluded a fine opening spell as Coggeshall slipped to 45/3. Two quick wickets from A Khaliq and Davidson (6-2-25-2) saw the score go from 76/3 to 77/5, but Coggeshall progressed past 100 before B Aslam and A Khaliq claimed the next two wickets to fall to make the score 104/7. The innings was then wrapped up quickly by Khaliq (6-0-32-4) and Aslam (3.2-1-13-2) as three wickets fell for just 1 run - Coggeshall all out for 118 in 28.2 overs.

The Cavaliers reply saw F Munir (2) depart early, but the score progressed to 34/1 before a Cavaliers collapse of monumental proportions against the swinging ball saw M Vinter (19), V Gedi (0), P Kannan (10), O ul Rehman (4), H Ahamed (1), S Riaz (0) and N Davidson (2) all dismissed as the Cavs lost 7 wickets for 12 runs, falling to 46/8 after 22.2 overs. D Young and B Aslam then added 17 for the ninth wicket to get the Cavs up to 63 before Aslam (7) was caught. The last pair then managed to earn the Cavaliers a batting point before Young (22) was caught off a leading edge, leaving A Khaliq (6*) not out as the Cavs were all out for 83 after 32.3 overs, losing by 35 runs.
