Robert-Gilles Martineau writes:
A very long game that proved to
be, 6 hours thanks to rank full tosses being disptached all over and beyond
the ground by both teams! Lucky theyhad come on time, or we would have
had a draw on our hands!
Interestingly enough there was
not a single dropped catch and the fielding was quite good all day actually!
It must have been the heat, then...
N. Creece must have been ruing
his missed opportunity at beating the record when he was caught "on" the
hill boundary. At the same time, had one of his streaking edges over the
slips in the first overs gone to hands, Ichihara would have been in a fix.
Well that is cricket,...
M. Hirayama scored his second half
century helped by T.. Yamada's Barry Bonds batting style to beat their
team's own partnership record. By the way, MAX C.C. is the only exclusively
Japanese team in the KCL!
Great day all in all. Superb spirit
shown by both teams. Beautiful work by the scorers. A pleasure to umpire!
Thank you guys and gals!

Lalazar Sports C.C. won by 183 runs
Umpires: A. McCloy & N. Harrison
Neil Harrison writes:
Lalazar rolled up late as usual
and proceeded to bulldoze Adore aside with an impressive batting display
that improved throughout the innings as the Adore bowling went from good
to bad to ugly.
Although Adore won the toss and
fielded when batting seemed to be the way to go, good 4-over spells from
each of the first four bowlers (Nakazawa, Shimada, Brady and Y. Kobayashi)
had Lalazar subdued at 60/1 after 20 overs. Nakazawa and Brady in particular
bowled excellently from the Shink end, and the only scoring shot off Brady
was an edge through slips. Lalazar lost their captain early, but Younus
(32) and Idrees (52) brought up the hundred with a steady partnership that
ended as both tried to force the pace (though both were dropped in the
same over that the captain fell). By this time the Adore attack was in
Bad mode and the fielding Worse. Bizarre bowling changes (both Brady and
Nakazawa came back on at the "wrong" end) and more dropped catches gave
Lalazar numerous chances that they were happy to accept. Ahmed Gulzar (108*)
came in at four and proceeded to tear the bowling apart in a calculated,
clean-hitting but preening assault that may well have broken the record
for fastest century in the KCL (it did! 41
balls=R-G. Martineau). When Amjad (52*) joined
Ahmed Gulzar, things turned ugly for Adore as a succession of lost balls
dragged the innings out to 3.5 hours for a total of 300/4.
Adore made a lively start to their
chase, taking advantage of a bagful of wide stuff, but seemed to give up
as soon as the first wicket fell. Thereafter Terashi and later Tsukada
dropped the dead bat on everything and killed the game in the space of
a few overs with a soporific display that had umpires and fielders alike
struggling to stay awake. Aqeel took the opportunity to try out practically
his entire team (9 players bowled) as, apart from the usual suspects (Takita,
Nakazawa and Brady), nobody looked interested in or capable of chasing
the score. Adore survived until the first ball of the last over, when a
comical runout ended proceedings on 117 to give Lalazar a thumping win
by 183 runs.
