Cavs vs Kelvedon, Part 1

The Sunday XI travelled to Kelvedon today for the first of two games in two weeks to be played between the sides at Rye Mill Lane.

After losing the toss the Cavaliers were asked to bat first after some morning rain had dampened the ground, and lost F Murtaza (3) early on to make the score 11/1. With runs hard to come by, it was slow going for the Cavaliers, reaching 29/1 after 12 overs before N Jalib (6) was next to be dsimissed. A third wicket partnership of 26 in 5 overs saw the Cavs rebuild, but the wicket of M Nadeem (21) was quickly followed by those of M Vinter (10) and B Aslam (4) as the score slipped from 55/2 to 64/5. A further 19 runs were added for the sixth wicket, but another mini-collapse saw the Cavaliers go from 83/5 to 88/8 as S Riaz (6), U Akhter (11) and A Khaliq (1) were all out. With D Young and N Davidson combining for the ninth wicket, they added 31 together (the highest partnership of the innings) in 7 overs before Davidson (23) was stumped in the 38th over. The next over saw U Ghani (5) bowled as the Cavaliers innings closed on 125 all out from 38.4 overs with Young (9*) not out.

The Kelvedon reply saw N Davidson (5-0-26-1) strike early as S Riaz (4-0-18-0) went wicketless., but the early breakthrough only succeeded in bringing E King to the crease, who hit four boundaries off A Khaliq (2-0-20-0) early on. With U Ghani (4-0-31-0) unlucky to not claim a wicket in his spell, Jalib turned to M Nadeem (4-0-20-1) who claimed a wicket in his second over via a sharp cath at gully by M Vinter to make the score 91/2. Kelvedon continued to attack, primarily through King (81*), as a short spell from B Aslam (1.1-0-10-0) was also seen off - Kelvedon reaching 129/2 from 20.1 overs to win by 8 wickets.
