11/01/2005: Anton McCloy umpiring in New Zealand: 
31.12.2005 /HAMISH BIDWELL writes:  
When you hear there's a Japanese umpire officiating at the national under-17 tournament at Nelson Park, the last bloke you're keeping your eyes peeled for is a tall, broad-shouldered Anglo-Saxon.  

You're expecting, well ... something different from Anton McCloy, the affable man from Ranfurly in Central Otago that sits down beside you, following a request to the tournament organisers for "a yarn with that Japanese ump." McCloy is part of a four-man East Asia-Pacific (EAP) elite umpires panel who attend tournaments around the world, right through from World Cup qualifiers to age-group affairs such as this one in Napier.  
  
It's all a far cry from how things began back in Central.  
"It just started with club stuff where we had to umpire our own games in the country competition," McCloy said.  

"So that was all the umpiring experience I had in New Zealand and then I've played cricket in Japan for the last nine years in the main Kanto competition, which is based around Tokyo, where there's about 17 clubs involved. It was an entirely expatriate competition initially with eight or nine core expat teams but now it's expanded, so a lot of local people who didn't even know cricket existed in Japan have developed an interest in it.  

"So from playing that, some in the final used to get a bit testy because it was an expat competition and you could get a team of Sri Lankans playing a team of Australians and there'd be Indians and Pakistanis and some South Africans and Zimbabweans floating around, who all come from different cricketing cultures.  

"So they asked me and a very good friend of mine, Mark McAtamney from Rotorua, to come and ump these particularly testy games and we had a reasonable grasp of the rules and had been playing against these guys for years."  

That's not the least of McCloy and McAtamney's responsibilities when it comes to keeping the Japanese competition afloat.  

"We don't have the time or the manpower to have grass wickets over there and because there's nowhere to play in central Tokyo, we play in the city I live in, Fuji City, right at the foot of Mount Fuji," McCloy said.  

"There's two grounds, side-by-side, with concrete artificials and, again, because Mark and I are the only cricketers in the area, we cut all the grass and do all the painting and cut down all the bush around it.  

"It's two-and-a-half hours on the toll highway from Tokyo every time people want to play, although the rich boys come down on the bullet train and take a taxi down the dirt track to the ground."  

McCloy also acts as an unofficial umpire development officer for the Japanese Cricket Association and it was through that that he came into contact with New Zealand Cricket's (NZC) umpire's manager Brian Aldridge.  

NZC, along with the Australian Cricket Board, is responsible for developing the game in all EAP countries and Aldridge, along with Australian test umpires Darrell Hair and Steve Davis and EAP umpire's co-ordinator, Tony Cooper, from Fiji, have become mentors of sorts for McCloy.  

Their tutelage saw him invited to the World Cup Qualifying tournament in Kuala Lumpur earlier this year, where he stood in two matches and was the third umpire in another.  

Then, like this week in Hawke's Bay, McCloy has to pinch himself and wonder what's he's done to be in such elite company.  

"I mean these guys have had years and years at the top level of umpiring."  

"But if these guys tell me that I'm doing the job and that I'm good enough to be here, then so be it."  

15~20/12/2005: Japan Selection Tour of Thailand: 
Japan Selection: 246 (Naeem Ud Din, 100; Shakir Khan, 51; Aamir Ali, 43)  
Royal Bangkok Sports Club:  247/4 (27 overs) (Ahbin Singh, 85; R. Chatfield, 63*; G. Chatfield, 40*) 
Royal Bangkok Sports Club won by 6 wickets 
Scorer: Mumtaz Alam 

Japan Selection: 351 (45 overs) (Naeem Ud Din, 103; Aamir Ali, 101; Sajjad Hassan, 61; Gulzar Ahmad, 30) 
Royal bangkok Sports Club: 320 (38 overs) (G. Chatfield, 80; Anil, 53; R. Chatfield, 40; manav, 40; Shayam, 38; David, 30) 
Japan Selection won by 31 runs 
Scorer: Mumtaz Alam 
Mumtaz Alam writes: 
A Japan Cricket Tour to Bangkok was organised from Dec 15 to 20 and included two games on Dec 17 and Dec 18 against Royal Bangkok Sports Club. On Dec 17 we plated a  30-over game.  
As the starting time had been agreed at 10 a.m., we left the Hotel about 9.15 because it is only a 10 min  
drive away from the Hotel to the ground. But its took us  35 min to reach the ground because of too much traffic. Another  sad news for the Japan team befor e itleft Japan was that one off the leaders of  
the Tour, Mumtaz Alam, had broken his left foot toe at work  in his company on Monday night and was subsequently out out of the games and doing scoring duty. Captain Aamir Ali won the toss and and chose to bat first. Naeem Ud Din and Sachin Chowdhery gave us a good start of 59 in 9 overs. 
Naeem scored a superb 100 in 76 balls helped on the way by Shakir Khan with 51 in 35 balls and finally Captain Aamir Ali blasted 43 in just 11 balls and Japan team gave a good 246 runs target to RBSC. 
But in their reply, RBSC's opner Abhin Singh hit some nasty blows. He hit 14 fours and 2 six for is 47 balls for a total of 85 runs. After his depature all batsmen brought their contributions before Kiwi brothers Richard and Gary Chatfield went on a rampage.  Richard Chatfield eneded up not out on  
63 for 36 balls and his brother  Gary not out on 40 for 20balls when RBSC reached their target in  
27 overs and RBSC win the first game by 6 wckets. Sajjad Hassan was the best bowler for Japan Selection conceding only 26 runs in 6 overs and taking 1 wicket. Kamran Ali took 2 wickets conceding 49 runs in 6 overs.  Man of the match is Naeem ud Din for Japan Selection.         

The Second game took place on the Polo Ground and was a 45-over affair. 
Again amir aliAwin the toss and Japan Selection batted first. Naeem Ud din and Sajjad Hassan gave a strong start of 135 for the first wicket.  After Sajjad had been bowled by Shayam for 61,  Naeem Ud Din scored his second  century in two days and scored brilliant 103 after the Umpire gave him out lbw, a very disputed decision. Captain Aamir Ali scored an excellent 101 in only 51 balls with some good  
support from Gulzar Ahmad who score 30 on 14 balls. Finally Japan Selection again give a defficult target of 351 in 45 overs.but again RBSC batsmen showed  their class when their mtheir team formed of a mix of  Indian,  Sri Lankan, New Zealanders.Once again some great hitting by Gary Chatfield with 80 in 37 balls, 53 from Anil, 42 from Richard Chatfield, 40 from Manav, 38 from Shayam and 34 from their Captain David, RBSC were all out only after scoring 320 in 38 overs. The best of the bowling came from Uzair with 2 wickets for 57,  Gulzar Ahmad with  2 for 66, Rizwan Mohammad with 2 for 61 Man of the match is Aamir Ali for Japan Selection. I personally really enjoyed some great cricket in two days as well as som sight-seeing with my family and Aamir and Kamran's families.  
There is some nice food to sample  because in Bangkok as there his are lots of Muslims from different  
countries like India, Pakistan, Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco. there are many Thai Muslim so  we did not  have any problems finding to Eat Halal foods. We hope to visit the place next year again!

07/011/2005: Charity Cricket Tournament Raises over 4 Million Yen for Pakistan Earthquake victims! 
David Davies writes: 
The Charity Cricket Tournament held yesterday, Sunday 6th November at Edogawa was an outstanding success. 
7 Teams representing 9 nationalities participated in the tournament to help raise money and awareness of the devastating tragedy that struck Pakistan last month. 
Together with contributions from the local Edogawa council and businesses people, over 4 Million Yen was raised which will go a long way to relieve the suffering in the effected areas.  Mr Hasib Rehman made a very substantial personal contribution showing outstanding generosity. 
The Pakistan Ambassador and the deputy Mayor of Edogawa City as wall as numerous other officials and dignitaries attended and the Ambassador and Mayor delivered stirring speeches during the midday break. 
Teams participated in a 7-a-side tournament of 5 overs per game. 
In the first round 
Ichihara Sharks comfortably defeated Tokyo Bay 
Al Karam defeated Japan in a tough and high scoring game and 
Falcons just scraped over the line to defeat Friends in the lowest scoring game of the day after Mumtaz Alam took 3 wickets for just 1 run. 
In the play offs 
Tokyo Bay were unable to chase down a huge score posted by Japan 
Al Karam proved way too strong for Ichihara and 
Falcons were no match for Lalazar 
In the Plate Final, Friends posted a sizable total, but despite a valiant effort particularly by Munir Ahmed and Tetsuo Fuji, Japan were unable to chase it down.  
Due to rain, the cup final between Al Karam and Lalazar was declared a draw and the teams were declared joint winners.  
Overall, it was and excellent effort by all concerned but particularly Mr. Sheikh Hiro who conceived and organized the event.   Almost immediately after the disaster Sheikh began preparing for this event and spent many full days of effort making plans, inviting teams, arranging attendance by officials and, most importantly, fundraising.  A large portion of the amount raised is directly attributable to Sheikh's efforts that were way beyond anyone's expectations.  
Special thanks to the Chairman of the KCA Mr Hasib Rehman / Sana Trading / JP Trading and Nawab Restaurant Mr Shakir Khan for their personal donations as well as the British Ambassador for wishes of support.    
It is fantastic to see how the Japan cricket community can pull together for a worthy cause and the Kanto Cricket Association wishes to thank everyone who supported this event.   A final note of thank to Mr Anton McCloy for coming all the way from from Fuji to umpire and Ms Hatanaka & Fumi Chan for scoring.  
We all hope that the contributions from this event will make a meaningful difference to the welfare of earthquake victims and allow them to rebuild their lives. 
Regards, 
David Davies 
on Behalf of KCA.
