Senior T20 Cricket

Sports Dept —

After a solid 2015 season finishing in a semi-finals spot, the boys were ready to bring out the sunnies and baseball caps to go at it again despite losing a few superstars to the IPL. The lineup was looking flash and amongst our ranks we had rising Black-Cap Bradley ‘Brad-Lee’ Bridewell, opening powerhouse Shaun ‘out-of-the-park’ Ellis and the lighting fast Zainal ‘Black Thunder’ Ali. After some vigorous Friday training sessions under Coach Pittams featuring some appalling catch practice, the lads took the season by the neck, dismantling Silverstream with a humble total of 269/10 in 18 overs in the first game. There were many highlights throughout the season, all-rounder Shivaash ‘Butterfingers’ Chand finally taking a classy catch in the slips on the 28th attempt for the season. Special mentions go to James ‘Sledge’ Jessop for bowling 7 wides in his opening over and to Mrs Shaw for being bowled for a golden duck by the Danny ‘The Brusierer’ Chanaphoo in the Staff vs Students game. The result of this match is heavily debated but fair-play was the real winner on the day. Player of the season goes to Ford ‘Dr Consistent’ Lambert for his flamboyant batting style and impressive shot selection. Special thanks to Jenn Feek for scoring our games and to Ms Els for being our No.1 fan. Most of the boys will undoubtedly be picking up big money contracts come the New Year, so cheers for great season boys and wish you all the best.
