SURREY MEN’S INDOOR CRICKET LEAGUE UPDATE
SURREY SLAM ICL- AMESBURY
Godalming had another very convincing performance as they beat Wonersh CC by 118 runs. They managed a huge 204 in their 12 overs. James Clarke scored a very quick 72 off 25 to put an un-chaseable score on the board. Godalming are now sitting at the top of the table with 8 points off 2 games.
Churt faced Headley in a very close match up with shaky batting performances from both sides. Headley chose to bat first and scored only 35 all out of 5.1 overs. Churt must have thought this was an easy chase, but their top 3 went early for a combined 9 runs which left all the pressure on the lower order. Churt managed to see themselves home.
SURREY SLAM ICL- DOWNSEND
Oxted & Limpsfield remain top of the table with Worcester Park followed by Chessington School who have snatched 3rd place away from Kempton.
Chessington beat Guilford Phoenix as they had a strong top order with their top 3 all scoring a well-rounded 91. However, this score has been beaten quite a lot before, so they would have had to put in a good effort in the field, but they defended it successfully to win by 10 runs.
SURREY SLAM ICL- FULLBROOK
Gordon's Camels continued their unbeaten start to the season with a win against Cobham Avorians Cowboys.
SURREY SLAM ICL- CROYDON
In the second week of the Croydon league, we saw Croydon CC set a very strong total of 170 off their 10 overs which is one of the highest out of all the competitions. Unfortunately, the Simba Six were never in the hunt chasing such a mammoth total.
SURREY SLAM ICL- Wimbledon Topping the Wednesday league this week are still old Hamptonians CC who are showing no sign of weakness.
In the middle of the pack, behind Wimbledon Corinthians in second, we have Spencer, Roehampton and Azaad with all teams level on 8 points after 5 games although Spencer do have the better NRR out of the three team with -0.23. Spencer are also showing signs of promise as they beat second in the league this week.
Bringing up the rear are Kingstonian CC who had a tough fixture this week and are looking to improve and move up the table.
Remaining at the top of the Thursday league are St. George’s University A who are yet to be beaten and with a convincing win of the Bank of England show no sign of letting up.
In the middle of the table there are many teams with a game in hand, so movement will be expected for the time being and no team is safe.
A special mention to Merton CC who managed to beat Roehampton off the last ball of the game. The opener Shadh Kularate who opened the batting and came back after retirement to finish on 39 off 43 deliveries.
