April 17th: Engineers Kytes:

-----
In a replay of the weekend conditions for the previous match, Saturday was sunny, warm and still, while Sunday was cloudy, windy and cold. Yuk. Sanjeeb won the toss for Engineers and did the democratic thing, asking his team what they wanted to do. The Captain's opinion was politely declined, and Engineers batted.
Kytes started well, with good spells from Rashid and Mewan and 2 early wickets, but thereafter loose bowling and looser fielding gifted Engineers too many easy runs and extra lives. Raju came in late and boosted the Engineers' total from respectable to daunting.
Kytes chase never got started, with Mewan and Wasantha both falling to dreadful cross-bat hoiks in the first 2 overs. Lakmal managed a couple of boundaries before managing the same heave across the line, and it wasn't until Kytes were 5 down for not enough that any fight was shown. Anurag and the Captain (29) stopped the rot, and then Takuma (28) and Rashid managed to add a touch of respectability to Kytes' losing effort (although a couple of Engineers' bowlers helped just as much in the Extras column). Excellent bowling by Rahul on his return to cricket in Japan, and good contributions from Jagan and Raju, but the real difference was the fielding. Engineers held their chances, taking hard catches to send back Sukitha and Anurag in particular. Kytes dropped 3 sitters, missed an easy run out and were generally slow in the field, possibly allowing the winning margin of 50 runs in the process.

Always a pleasure to play Engineers, win or lose. Hope to see you again soon.

April 3rd: Kytes Cruise Past Adore:
Shizuoka Kytes C.C.: 240 (39.3 overs) (Sukitha 91, Mewan 58, Shimada 6/17, Hagiwara 3/17)

Adore visited Shizuoka for the 2011 season opener. Saturday's clear blue skies and 22°C warmth were duly replaced with overcast conditions, a chilly wind and a 10°C drop in temperature. Hayashi won the toss for Adore and stuck Kytes in - sometimes you might as well not toss. From the Lone Tree End, Yuta had his slow motion left-arm boomerang right back in the groove, this time with extra dip. Have these boys been practising? At the Bridge End, Hagiwara was all line and length. They have been practising, haven't they. Lakmal's radar was the first to blink, bowled by Yuta and returning with the familiar "Where'd that go?" expression. The Captain and Mewan (58 off 86) restored order, and when the former was well yorked by Sunaoka, Sukitha came in and played one of those "What's all the fuss about? innings. Yuta's return for a second spell pulled Kytes back, getting Sukitha (91 off 63) to a superb jumping catch by Tsuchiya on the square leg boundary to end a 159-run partnership. Obviously, it was time for the wheels to fall off. Abbott father and son were lined up in the order to bat together, but Leigh messed it up with an uncultured swipe at Yuta. Gary came in and showed the young un how to stick around. Meanwhile, Yuta (8-1-6-17) struck again and again, and Hagiwara returned to to finish things off, with only a brief flurry from Uditha to keep Kytes warm.
Kytes ended on 240, not bad, but about 30 runs light based on the platform set by Sukitha and Mewan.
Adore never really managed to mount a serious challenge to the score, losing wickets at regular intervals. There was good resistance and a bit of fight from Takano (32 off 35), but little else. The Captain could afford to run through a string of bowlers and they all performed well with one notable misfiring exception, who shall remain nameless. Rashid did the main damage with figures of 6-1-3-19 in two spells.

Many thanks to Adore for making the trip, and good luck in Division 1 this year.
Man of the Match: Excellent effort by Yuta, but Sukitha Halambage (Kytes) takes the biscuit.

November 14th: PFC Semi-final: Gay Wombats Flay Shite Kytes:
Shizuoka Kytes C.C.: 123 (25.3 overs) (Ronnie Parvej 5/26)
Tokyo Wombats C.C.: 124/3 (18 overs) (Ross Ferris 74*)
Tokyo Wombats beat Shizuoka Kytes by 7 wickets.
Scoresheet Here
-----
The new look Wombats ("harder, but softer") brought their sensitive side down to the ACO for the first PFC semi of the year, but the result was judderingly familiar for Kytes. The Captain won the toss and opted to bat on a cloudy but warm autumn day. Nick Gold bowled a wide, then bowled Mewan. Great start for Kytes. Lakmal soon followed, but Wasantha and Sukitha staged a mini-revival. With these two gone just before drinks, Kytes were starting to wobble on 76/4. And then the wheels fell off, with only The Captain showing any other resistance. Nick and Alex bowled really well, Ronnie claimed his first 5-for and Kytes folded on a duff 123.
Kytes briefly managed to make the chase look like a challenge, with Toddler and Nick bagging 3 wickets and keeping the runs down for the first ten overs. But once Ross and Gavin had settled, the result looked just a matter of time. A succession of change bowlers then came on to hasten the end with some woeful bowling. Ross played some excellent shots, one of which, a "gay dab" for four off Mewan, was a particular favourite of the watching Wombats on the terrace. Can't think why. Ross (74* off 60) and Gavin (24* off 38) eventually finished with an unbeaten 105-run partnership, inspiring mixed feelings in the waiting Wombats on the Terrace - obviously happy to get such an emphatic win, but also frustrated not to get a slice of the easy runs on offer. Congratulations to Wombats and good luck in the final.

Thanks to Wombats for the thrashing and for joining us in the soba shop. And for not singing that song.
Man of the Match: Ross Ferris (Wombats).

November 7th: Friendly: Kytes Scrape Past Engineers:
Indian Engineers C.C.: 177/9 (35 overs) (Sanjeeb 45, Mohibul 42)
Shizuoka Kytes C.C.: 181/9 (32.3 overs) (Babar 35, Sanjeeb 3/21)
Shizuoka Kytes beat Indian Engineers by 1 wicket.
Scoresheet Here

Shizuoka Kytes just about got the better of their favourite opponents in a see-saw match that was in the balance all the way. Engineers won the toss and chose to bat on a beautiful autumn day. Kytes got the upper hand early on with tight spells from Mewan and Überveteran Don Prelis keeping Engineers to 27/3 off 9 overs. Highlight of the early overs was Don's "assist", palming Amit's uppish drive to bowler Suresh. Mohibul (42 off 33) then joined Babu and took the attack to Kytes with some impressive clean hitting that took Engineers to a comfortable 88/3 at drinks. As so often, the breakthrough followed the break as Mohibul played on in the first over after drinks and Babu followed in the same Wasantha over. Skipper Sanjeeb (45 off 42) ensured there was no collapse, however, and batted sensibly almost through to the close to leave Engineers with an eminently defendable 177/9.
Kytes set out on the chase with a batting line-up that could best be described as "experimental". 2 early wickets had Engineers looking forward to an early barbecue, but first Mewan and Babar (35 off 45) rallied and then Babar and the Captain managed to get to drinks with Kytes well-placed on 90/3. 3 quick wickets later and Engineers were back on top, only for The Don to shepherd the innings to within sight of victory with a stately 28 off 50 balls. With Muditha and Rashid falling soon after, Kytes' last pair were left to score the last 8 runs for victory, but the advantage to Kytes' topsy-turvy batting line-up was that the last pair was Wasantha and Sukitha, and these 2 picked off the winning runs without shredding any nerves.

Thanks to Engineers for the match and staying for a post-match BBQ. It really was an excellent day-out.
Man of the Match: Sanjeeb Sahoo (Engineers).

October 24th: Friendly: Kytes Blow Paddy's Away:
Shizuoka Kytes C.C.: 120
Paddy Foley's C.C.: 59 (Lakmal 3/16)
Shizuoka Kytes C.C. beat Paddy Foley's by 61 runs.
Scoresheet Here
-----
A makeshift Kytes team brushed aside an equally makeshift Paddy Foley's in an enjoyable, brief encounter at the ACO. Stand-in skipper Toddler maintained his 100% win record as captain and got his first runs of the season. Kytes posted another lacklustre effort with the bat, the highlight of which was three laughable runouts. Fortunately for Kytes, tight bowling and sharp fielding made sure that 120 was enough for a comfortable win.
Überveteran Don Prelis became the latest Kyte on the casualty list after emulating The Frenchman's tried, tested and failed method of stopping the ball with his cheek. Get well soon, Lalith!

Thanks to Paddy's for the match. Hope to see you again in March.
Man of the Match: Lakmal (Kytes).

October 17th: KCL Semi-final: Lalazar Thrash Kytes Again:
Shizuoka Kytes C.C.: 84/8 Innings Closed (22.4 overs)
Lalazar C.C.: 85/2 (13.2 overs) (Asheeq 50*)
Lalazar C.C. beat Shizuoka Kytes C.C. by 8 wickets.
Umpire: Ramdas Baliga (Tigers)
Scoresheet Here
-----
Deja vu at the ACO as Lalazar cruised into the KCL Final with an easy victory over Shizuoka Kytes that was painfully and eerily reminiscent of the last time these 2 teams met in KCL. Kytes started at something of a disadvantage with Arbab AWOL for the second game running, but even so, were unable to make an impression against a strong bowling line-up. Only Sukitha looked like offering resistance, but he managed to clock himself above the left eye, resulting in an ambulance ride to hospital.
Just as they did two years ago, Lalazar made light work of the chase, Asheeq in particular playing some good drives and cuts.

Thanks to Lalazar for the match, congratulations on the win, and good luck in the final. Thanks also to Ramdas of Tigers who did a great job umpiring.
Man of the Match: None, really. Asheeq got 50 in the chase, but it was the bowlers who decided the result.

October 3rd: KCL: Kytes' Calculations Pay Off:
Shizuoka Kytes C.C.: 183/6 (35 overs) (Ashley Harvey 66, Hasarat Ali 3/21)
C.C. of Nagoya: 176 (33.3 overs) (Madan Lal 42, Mohammad Adeen 41, Ravi Kumar 32)
Shizuoka Kytes C.C. beat C.C. of Nagoya by 7 runs.
Umpire: R-G. Martineau (Kytes)
Scoresheet Here
-----
Shizuoka Kytes qualified for the KCL semi-finals for the second year running on the back of a controlled batting display and some get-out-of-jail bowling in a sporting encounter at the ACO. Nagoya knew that a win would put them into the semis. Kytes knew that a win would put them level on points with Serendib, who had a significantly better runs per wicket ratio. 4/2 after 4 overs, both openers back on the terrace without scoring, was not the ideal start. But Ashley (66) and Wasantha (26) followed that with a solid 95-run partnership that lasted till the second ball after drinks. More vital runs from Sukitha and a very generous contribution of 46 extras ensured that Kytes not only posted a strong total, but also leapfrogged Serendib's runs per wicket ratio. Now all we had to do was win the match with the ball, which isn't easy when your best bowler is absent after being involved in a traffic accident, and with only ten fielders because you didn't find out about it till after the game started. Get well soon, Arbab!
And then your opening bowler does a Harmison, starting the innings with three wides and a no-ball, before taking a wicket, bowling more wides and getting pulled for a second high full toss. Still with only 2 legit balls bowled in the innings. Fortunately for Kytes, Doc Todd was on the money at the Bridge End and Suresh was able to tidy up the mess at the Lone Tree End. Unfortunately for Kytes, Madan had dropped anchor and was looking unmovable. A rapid 70-run partnership with Mohammad Adeen saw Nagoya on track for victory, so it was all the more impressive when, with 5 down and Madan and Ravi building a 50-run partnership, Kytes called Madan back after he was given out lbw despite an inside edge. Well done, Kytes.
With 6 overs to bowl, Nagoya were 6 down, required 24 runs, and the Captain's regular bowlers were spent. This meant 3 tense overs each for Ashley and Wasantha, but after a runout broke the last crucial partnership between Hasarat and Ravi, Kytes were able to finish up before the game went down to the wire.

Thanks to Nagoya for the match, which, despite the stakes, and despite being close all the way to the end, was played in very good spirit.

June 6th: KCL: Engineers Power Past Toothless Kytes:
Indian Engineers C.C.: 260/8 (40 overs) (Dinesh Singh 55, Sanjeeb Sahoo 52)
Shizuoka Kytes C.C.: 128 (23.4 overs) (Sukitha Halambage 30, Anurag Singh 3/13)
Indian Engineers C.C. beat Shizuoka Kytes C.C. by 132 runs.
Umpire: R-G. Martineau (Kytes)
Scoresheet HERE
-----
A string of late pull outs (which had the Captain contemplating a forfeit on Saturday night) left Kytes with no hope of holding back a rampant Engineers batting line-up. A Sunday morning phone-round got the numbers back up to 10 (thanks to Lakmal), with Nick to come later, but with only 3 regular bowlers, Kytes were unable to hold Indian Engineers back. Engineers won the toss and batted first on a new track that offered good bounce after a week without rain.
Arbab and Lakmal bowled well, with Arbab particularly unlucky not to take a hatful of wickets, but intelligent batting by first Dinesh and then Sanjeeb kept the scoreboard ticking over too quickly for Kytes' liking.

As against Serendib, Kytes' chase never got going, with Ganesh taking a ripper at gully to send the Captain back in the first over. Linton and Pushpendra steadied ship for a while, but with them gone only Sukitha offered resistance, although he blotted his record by slicing and dicing Sanjeeva and Arbab for the Engineers. Engineers kindly padded out Kytes' reply to the tune of 2 extras per over, but that really amounted to nothing more than putting lipstick on the proverbial pig.

Thanks to Indian Engineers for the match, played, as always, in the right spirit.
Man of the Match: Dinesh Singh (Indian Engineers)

May 9th: KCL: Serendib Feast on Kytes' Butterfingers:
Serendib C.C.: 193 (39.1 overs) (Sachintha Gurudenya 91, Amesh Weerasinghe 38, N. Shannon 3/34)
Shizuoka Kytes C.C.: 139 (26.1 overs) (Asanka Pallagedera 4/21)
Serendib C.C. beat Shizuoka Kytes C.C. by 54 runs.
Umpire: R-G. Martineau (Kytes)
Scoresheet HERE
-----
Serendib took advantage of some dire Kytes' catching to start their 2010 KCL campaign with a comfortable, if not entirely convincing win.
Serendib won the toss and batted in excellent conditions but limped to 75/6 against mostly accurate bowling, particularly by Arbab. Sachintha and Amesh then doubled the total, taking full advantage of some abysmal catching as Kyte after Kyte either dropped the ball or tried not to be anywhere near it when it came down. In all, an even dozen chances went begging, and Kytes' opportunity of restricting Serendib to a manageable total disappeared faster than a Frenchman's fist.

Kytes' chase never really got going, with Don Prelis falling to the first legitimate ball of the innings and Wasantha following soon after. A succession of middle order bats managed double figures, but with only Suresh getting past 20, the Serendib bowlers were never really under pressure. Whenever Kytes looked like gaining any momentum, Shiron would bring himself or Asanka on to stifle the runs or ping a wicket.

Thanks to Serendib for the match and for playing, as ever, with a smile.
Man of the Match: Sachintha Gurudenya (Serendib)

April 11th: KCL: Kytes Handle Tigers' Wood:
Indian Tigers C.C.: 146 (36 overs)
Shizuoka Kytes C.C.: 147/5 (19.3 overs) (Uditha Asanga 50, Joel Chamberlain 34*)
Shizuoka Kytes C.C. beat Indian Tigers C.C. by 5 wickets.
Umpire: Sanjeeb Sahoo (Engineers)
Scorer: R-G. Martineau
Scoresheet HERE
-----
Kytes got their 2010 KCL campaign off to a good start with a convincing 5-wicket win over Tigers.
Tigers won the toss and batted in almost ideal conditions. Their total of 146 owed more to Kytes' generosity (to the tune of 50 extras) than any particular batsman, although Raj and the Doctor knuckled down for a 49-run partnership after Tigers lost 5 wickets for 11 runs.
There were mixed fortunes for Kytes' debutant bowlers, with Linton bowling 3 overs (all in one - now there's economy) and Mukesh bowling 4 (the conventional way, alternating with a bowler from the opposite end), in both cases for 16 runs. Suresh and Nick bowled excellent spells in the middle of the innings to keep the pressure on, and there were good contributions from Sukitha, Lakmal, Mewan and the Captain. Basically, the bowlers were good when they weren't bowling wides. One telling stat: only 6 boundaries in the innings.

Kytes set about chasing 147 with positive intent courtesy of Joel's return to form. When Mewan departed for not much, Uditha came in and matched Joel in a brisk 47-run partnership that was only ended when Joel retired after twisting his knee. This gave Don Prelis the chance to cement his reputation as Bunny II, which he duly grabbed with both hands and a botched single. The Captain then joined Uditha for another free-scoring partnership, during which Uditha notched his first 50 for Kytes.
All this time, Rajeev was juggling his bowlers like nine pins trying to find someone to put a brake on Kytes' free scoring and, by the time he settled on Pramod and Anil, Kytes were already within striking distance of their target. 3 late wickets offered some consolation, but, somewhat fittingly for this match, the winning runs were wides.

Thanks to Tigers for the match and for playing in the right spirit.
Thanks to Sanjeeb of Engineers for a good job umpiring.
Man of the Match: Uditha (Kytes)

March 28th: Friendly: Rain washes out season warm-up.
Shizuoka Kytes C.C.: 181/8 (35 overs) (Ashley Harvey 45)
Ashley and a shedload of wides provided the bulk of the runs in a competitive Kytes' total that wasn't tested due to the weather's intervention. Toddler ("I've bought new cricket shoes and I'm raring to go") retired hurt after copping a gentle full toss on his big toe.
Serendib C.C. did not bat. Match drawn.
