Aldenham Cricket Club Aldenham Cricket Club v Arkley on Sat 16 May 2015 at 1400
Aldenham Cricket Club Won by 107 runs

Match report After a massive day at the parish why not tell all those not in the know what happened at the home of cricket today.

Arkley at home. What is to tell? Why did we ever drop this fixture?
After last Saturday who is to know what the days cricket might unfold?

ACC batting first. Usually a good call to make a day of it in this fixture.

First ball the pirate smashes one through 3rd man for 4. second ball a clear single to all but mr Russel at the non strikers end lead to the furious demise of the pirate. Many words to be had after the innings

Bringing in sheep 2 jugs hill who smashes a glorious 100, big shots galore not to mention numerous chances for the opposition to end the demonstration of clean striking and 6 and 4 hitting of the new ACC batsman tipped for big things this season after his maiden ton was ended by the sheep himself after retiring on the landmark figure due to concerns that he may go on to make ridiculous against the struggling attack at which oping the russler was on about 20. No offence russler, you got done.

Frosty(legend) glover made a very entertaining duck batting left handed at 4 which bought in Mr Karan Charles Barot who was in no mood for sympathy smashed 50 in no time before getting caught on the boundary after loosing the will to live against the below average Arkley attack,tucked in.

With Munroe, Chris and T. Watfa at the crease a ridiculous first innings score was anticipated but a daemon in the pitch saw a keep low half tracker crash into Munroe's middle stump saw the club chef return to where he belongs to the catering of the grudge fixture.

A reluctant stand between Watfa and Amit Chakrawarti saw the home side, Aldenham reach 258~7 with the Lebanese and Indian megastars undefeated at the early declaration of 258.

After a glorious tea to live long in the memory by top club chef and lifebevlpartner acc set about the huge task of taking 10 Arkley wickets.

Munroe, gay lad jnr, and Danny(give it to me) Morgan put on a quality long opening sbowling spell against the surprisingly decent upper order of Arkley CC. Both getting rewards for their efforts.

Part time ambitious rip and dip specialist C. Munroe snr was surprisingly given the nod by the skip N. Hale at 1st change. Unusually challenged many-a-batsman but was horrifically let down by his fellow Parishoners with at least 5 dropped chances, 1missed stumping and 1 missed run out causing the chef to question the commitment of his team.

Perhaps it was the over indulgence of Tracy's magnificent cakes that was the downfall of the fielding home side.

Amit bought on from the top end and K. Barot backed up significantly better by keeper T Watfa with some sharp work behind the stumps and the first catch held in the outfield for some time saw the end of the Arkley innings way short of the Acc total.

Massive win for Aldenham keeps their tremendous winning streak going against Arkley who just keep coming back.
