Tokyo Giants C.C. make the most of their chances to win the KCL Final for the 3rd consecutive year thanks to a record-breaking 9th wicket 84-run partnership by Naseem Malik and Mumtaz Alam : 
Tokyo Giants C.C.: 149 (32.2 overs) (Malik Naseem, 44*; Mumtaz Alam, 32; N. Saida, 3/23) 
Millennium C.C.: 136/6 (35 overs) (T. Matsubara, 36*) 
Tokyo Giants C.C. won by 13 runs 
Umpires: Neil Harrison & Robert-Gilles Martineau 
Scorer: Patrick Harrington 
Groundsmen: Mark McTamney & Anton McCloy Robert-Gilles Martineau writes: 
Catches win matches... 
December the 14th... a record for a KCL match to be held so late in the year. Mind you, we were blessed with an incredibly fine weather with the temperature rising above 15 odegrees Celsius, no wind and a perfect blue sky and a grand view of snow-capped Mount Fuji all day long. 
For once everybody had come on time and the game was started at another record time of 9:45! 
The ground was a bit wet, but thanks to FFECC's Mark McTamney and Anton McCloy's hard work the previous day, a game of cricket had been made possible. Considering that the umpires and scorers were provided by the Kytes, the finalists profusely thanked the Prefecture of Shizuoka for helping finish the season in proper manner! 
The Giants won the toss and opted to bat. 
-27/0 (3.5 overs): some loose bowling by Mohammad Rizwan and N. Miyaji until the latter produces the perfect yorker to send Sajjad Hassan (11) 's midlle cartwheeling. 
-30/2: Amjad Hussain (1) was then caught at mid-on by Qureshi Naheem off a mistimed drive at a shortish ball from Mohammad Rizwan. 
-35/3: Mohammad Rizwan, now turning on the screws, induces Jahangir Babar (13) in his third drive, but this time, instead of completely missing, the batsman got a snick to give an easy catch to part-time wicket-keeper Ahmed Munir. 
-44/4: Y. Matsubara produces the perfect left-handed bowler's inswing to trap Hamid Saeed l.b.w., half-heartedly prodding forward. 
-46/5: N. Saida bowls driving Tauseef Azhar (0), uprooting his leg stump with a great inswinger. 
-46/6: Y. Matsubara produces another perfect inswinger to trap Rana Rashid l.b.w. 
-53/7: N. saida bowls another inswinger to knock down Razzaq Cheema (1)'s wicket. 
-65/8: N. Saida induces Zaheer Babar into a false shot and spoon a comfortable catch by Mohammad Rizwan at mid-on. 
Inexplicably, Millennium chooses not to go for the kill by either bringing back their opening bowlers at once or using Ahmed Munir's dangerous legbreaks. 
Instead, Y. Matsubara, with the total at 75, once again tricks Naseem Malik into a false shot to spoon a sitter to Qureshi Naeem at mid-on who drops the dolly. Then at 90, Captain Mumtaz Alam tries to hit Mohammd Rizwan to the boundary only to see his shot loop directly to Y. Matsubara on the boundary. End of the inning? No, the ball is dropped again! 
Millennium persists in using their second-string bowlers and slow bowler S. Kanzaki is hammere for 24 runs in 2 overs, especially by Malik Naseem who goes through a sequence of 4-2-2-1-6-1-4-2 before hitting 13 in the next 6 balls. 
-149/ 9 and 149/10: At last Ahmed Munir is brought into the picture and takes care of the last two wickets with two balls, bowling Mumtaz Alam (32) and having Malik Farruq habib (0) caught by N. Yoshioka at mid-on off a towering blow. 

Captain Mumtaz Alam once again proves the saviour with the enormous help from lucky Malik Naseem, the two combining a 9th wicket partnership of 84 runs, a new record fort he KCL!  

As for Millennium's bowling, N. Miyaji (7-0-18-1) did his best, especially in his last 5 opvers when he conceded only 7 runs. N. Saida (7-0-23-3) took the wickets that counted at a minimal cost. Ahmed Munir (1.2-0-6-2) showed how dangerous he is and how improperly he is being used. Y. Matsubara (6-0-39-2) did his best when the going got rough and should come out with far better figures with some help from his fielders. Mohammad Rizwan (7-0-33-2) disappointed for a member of the Japan squad. S. Kanzaki (2-0-24-0) simply got muredered. 

Although the Giants should have bowled out for less than 80, 149 was not an overdifficult target for Millennium who had showed how good their batting was in the past. 

-6/1: Ahmed Munir (6) uselessly gets rash and cross bats at a good length ball from Mumtaz Alam to sky an easy catch to wicket-keeper Amjad Hussain. Unreserved celebrations from the Giants players who know they have got a big wicket cheaply. 
-37/2: Qureshi Naeem (9) gets caught behind by Amjad Hussain off Hamid Saeed's very first ball enticing him in a poor shot. 
-45/2 in 18 overs: T. Fuji and N. Miyaji, in spite of three sixes between the two of them get booged down, combining for more than thirty dots in a row. 
-58/3: T. Fuji (25) is comprehensivley bowled by Rana Rashid's yorker after being repeatedly beaten off his off stump. 
68/4: Mohammad Rizwan (3) off to an easy start, swings at a rank long hop from left-arm offspinner Tauseef Azhar and completely misses the ball which falls onto the middle stump in a nightmarish slow motion. Some unpalatable celebrations from the Giants players at the dismissal of a compatriot. The less said, the better... 
80/5: N. Miyaji (21) strikes disaster with a suicidal attempt to run a bye and gets run out with miles to go. 
-80/6: N. Yoshioka (6) gets caught by Malik Naseem at second slip trying to cut Mumtaz Alam. 
Y. Matsubara (36*) and S. Iida (13*) find themselves having to score 70 runs in 7 overs and go for broke, sing, miss, swing and miss again, then connects for twos and singles. Y. Matsubara connects for a big six. Some sloppy fielding (at least ten overthrows) give them a glimmer of hope, but Hamid Saeed puts the brakes when needed, encouraged by skipper Mumtaz Alam who screams his head off berating his players' sloppiness. 
Tokyo Giants are finally home by 13 runs. 

The Giants' bowlers probably won the match in the end. They combined for 8 maidens. Multiply that by 2 and you get the difference bewteen the two teams, not counting they conceded only 10 wides to 23, in spite of the lenient umpiring. 
Rana Rashid (7-2-1-17) and Hamid Saeed (7-3-19-1) were never comfortably played. Razzaq Cheema (7-1-24-1) was reasonably cheap. Mumtaz Alam (7-1-33-2) although har hit in the end got the vital wicket of Ahmed Munir. Tauseef Azhar (7-1-36-1), a scruffy player with strange histrionics if there is one, disappointed in spite of his sole lucky wicket. 

On the whole, Tokyo Giants deserved to win because of their grittiness and will to win. 

Man of the match: Malik naseem, closely followed by Mumtaz Alam and Hamid Saeed

Read all about the very successfull Osaka Bulldogs' tour in Fukui Prefecture! 
Richard Downing writes: 
on quite a few of the previous Osaka cricket tours the weather gods had proved decidedly unfriendly and so it was quite a relief to have glorious autumnal sunshine  for the tour. 

The area was picturesque............old Japanese farmhouses nestling in the shadows of wild boar and bear-infested mountains.........indeed the huge place where most of us stayed had a couple of stuffed bears and an eagle and a deer on parade,but more about that later. 

Osaka tours are nothing without at least a couple of high spirited pranks and the first of many was played on the unsuspecting roderick Linn at the pre-game party when he was thanked for his sterling work over the past years in getting the grounds for the team. 

A beautiful box was handed to him signed by all the members of the team and a speech was made in his honor.The bashful,shy but sexy Linn stood up to receive his award only to find the box contained ................a green and yellow Norwich City canary scarf!!!! 

But to his credit he took it all in good sport and for the rest of the tour proudly wore the colors around his neck.........well,actually it got a bit chilly up in the mountains and it certainly came in handy at night where it was rolled up into a sort of knotted ball and used in the  40 mat giant bedroom for penalty shoot outs.........QPR 5 Norwich 5. It was also used as a cricket ball..........oh the things we got up to at night. 

We were entertained by a banjo player and bit of David Bowie,and Richie benaud(12th man) before retiring for the night. 

The morning found a vicious,black snarling bear by the side of Byron's futon. 

Screams could be heard all over Obama. 

Somehow the bear had managed to jump down from his ledge and mysteriously make his way to Byron's bedside.It also made a brief appearance  at Rod Linn's bed drapped in a canary scarf.(I've just finished watching the videos and digital photos and they are priceless)  

Oh well,on to the cricket. 

Not  having a full team,we decided to mix the teams in a 9 or 10 a side game of 20 overs each for two innings(which later became 20 overs and 10 overs to allow for the barbecue at half time.the Obama team henceforth known as the Goats took on the Osaka Bears. 

It was a social game in the truest sense of the word.............a lot of fun and not much importance was attached to the result. 

I celebrated my 2,000th run for Osaka  and Rod Linn was dropped 4 times(2 simple) off the bowling of long suffering Dick Irving on his way to about 65. 

We put on 48 for the first wicket before I was caught in the covers by the Japanese banjo player......I think it was the first  game this season in which I didn't play a leg glance,but I manageda few cuts square and late. 

All our members(the Goats) managed a bit of a hit and we finished at 146. 

The Bears were in all kinds of trouble right from the word go.Opening with Byron and Lawrence. lawrence Taylor was faced with myself at forward short leg with a stuffed golden duck protruding from the neck of my shirt.The pychcological pressure must have been er .....unBEARable.........well,it was! Taylors off stump went knocked out by Liam Goat.  

After leaving all his kit in the hotel(1 hour away) the usually immaculately  clad taylor looked a bedraggled figure as he trudged off the field holding the stuffed golden duck. 

A few balls later Byron who never got a chance to play the cut shot  had his middle stump knocked out of the ground.Dirty Dick irving was next to go followed by Guy "the widester" Matthews.Actually Guy didn't bowl one single wide all during the game. 

Only Chris Kaye made a scoregrafting 40 not out and the Bears finished on 97 all out. 

The second innings remains a bit of a blur except Lawrence Taylor after getting off the dreaded pair got bowled by a woman(I believe the first Bulldog ever to suffer this ignominy). The ball hit the back of his heel and somehow trickled onto the stump. 

Much hilarity ensued.Byron got farted out........I let one rip as he went to play his shot and so un-nerved was he that the sound off crashing timber must have been a bit of a relief to him. 

He wasn't a happy camper. 

Anyway,the Goats won quite easily in the end.But the result mattered not. 

We all had a great time and thanks must go to Liam the Goat for all the hard work he put into organizing things at his end and also to our own Chris Kaye who did all that hard work for the osaka end. 

The tour was short and sweet.A one night affair.Sadly my last tour for the Bulldogs,but one to remember with a lot of smiles and laughter.

Sanctions for Pakistan Eaglets C.C.: 
The KCL Committee having done the investigation on their own and also having interviewed Mr. Moghes Ahmed,the latter admitted that Waqar, who does not posses a valid visa, played in the name of Ijaz Ahmed for his club, the KCL Organising Committee has come to the conclusion that he, as the captain of the Pakistan Eaglets C.C., has wilfully violated the KCL playing conditions and is more guilty than the offending player himself. However, the Committee recognises the fact that this is the first violation of this kind by his club. Therefore with a warning that any further violation will result in more sever penalties, the Committee has taken the following decisions: 
1. Mr. Moghes Ahmed is not allowed to take part in his club's next KCL match in any position. 
2. Waqar is banned from playing the rest of the season of 2003 and the full season of 2004, even if he acquires a valid visa during this period

Mumtaz Alam writes: 
A nice weather and beautiful ground with delicious Pakistani curry and nan that we Giants players enjoyed eating  between the innings. What more can you ask? That we win? Well, actually we lost, and who cares? 
The Giants won the toss and decided to bat firts in spite of firat cricket after 5 months interruption. 
The giants had the perfect start thanks to sajjad and Mujahid who amassed 40 runs in just 7 overs. Then we lost 2 quick wicketd before Mujahid and guest player Munir contributed a partnership of 60 runs to reach 143 for 4 after 22 overs. 
But after Munir had departed, 5 wickets tumbled for only 21 more runs and the giants' innings closed at 164 in 32 overs. 
Good total, but Gunma XI Star showed their all-round class by reaching thier target with 4 wickets in hand in 34 overs. 
Great practice for both clubs before they start the KCL competition beginning of April. 
I must confess that the KCL is lucky to include the Gunam XI Start from this year as they have a very good ground in Isesaki City, just 15 minutes from HONKO KODAMA EXIT of the KANETSU HIGHWAY. If you go by train, board the TAKASANO LINE from TOKYO-UENO JR Station and go down at HONJO Station. 
The ground has clear boundaries all around with toilets available. 
A 7 Eleven , a Family Mart and a Lawson convenience store are available within only 10 minutes drive. 
"KAMPEKI!" ("PERFECT!") as we  say in Japanese! 
The Tokyo Giants C.C. will play Friends XI C.C. on March 23rd in Fuji to commemorate Pakistan Day. All friends in the Shizuoka area are invited to join the fun! We shall hold a Pakistani BBQ. Mark McTamney and Anton McCloy will officiate as umpires! 

We put the flex pitch on the Shizuoka Ground! 

Change of team name: 
The members of Edogawa Falcons C.C. having dropped from the new team that was called Edogawa United C.C. will be called Wombats C.C. as the members of club of same name have decided to go it on their own.
