On a very sunny May afternoon, we fielded a team against the LSE.
The venue, LSE’s sports ground in New Malden, is a very well kept wicket, kudos to the groundsmen.
LSE batted first against a solid performance from CBDSP in the field, restraining them to 206 runs on a 250-par batting track.
Not a bad effort considering we have never played as a team before, many haven’t played in years and one was a total novice!
Everyone fielded convincingly, with notable contributions from :
With a decent total to chase, CBDSP set about the task with an admirable start, and continued by exceeding the required run rate for our 19 overs. Unfortunately CBDSP ran out of wickets.
Lack of practice got the better of the CBDSP batsmen, all out for a respectable 93.
Notable batting contributions from :
Although not the desired result, we can be proud of our performance against a stronger team.
A very enjoyable and well spirited game which is hopefully the birth of our company cricket team.
