Nine Man Tendring Edge Past Cavs

The Saturday XI travelled to Tendring for their penultimate game of the 2019 season and batted first after winning the toss.

The Cavaliers started well, with M Vinter passing 6,000 club runs in the seventh over of the match as he and D Smith added 68 for the first wicket before Smith (23) was caught. Vinter (35) was dismissed shortly afterwards, but a third wicket partnership of 32 saw the score pass 100 before B Munir (11) was out bowled. The Cavaliers progressed to 125/3, but the wickets of T Hijazi (6), B Aslam (4) and P Johnson (0) meant the score slipped to 137/6. A seventh wicket partnership of 42 (the highest seventh wicket partnership of 2019) between K Chowdhury and N Davidson got the Cavs up to 179/6, but the wicket of Davidson (21) initiated a collapse, with S Riaz (0), A Khaliq (1) and D Young (0) all out cheaply, leaving Chowdhury (50*) undefeated as the Cavaliers posted a score of 184 all out after 42.5 overs.

The Cavaliers' fielding effort saw the opening bowlers start slowly, though S Riaz (8-1-19-0) kept the run rate down while N Davidson (13-1-60-3) claimed the first three wickets to fall as Tendring reached 53/3 after 15 overs. The introduction of B Aslam (4-0-11-1) and A Khaliq (13-2-35-3) then saw four further wickets fall while D Smith (4-0-30-0) was unlucky in his spell after replacing Aslam. With one wicket needed for the Cavaliers, the score was 144/7 after 35 overs, but none of the bowlers were able to make that final breakthrough before Tendring's last man hit the winning runs off the bowling of K Chowdhury (1.3-0-11-0); the innings ending on 185/7 after 43.3 overs.
