County Championship Division 1
The Oval, 5-8 April 2012
Surrey beat Sussex by 85 runs


Surrey carried on where they left off last season with a fairly convincing win over their rivals to the south. I managed to see all of day 2 (Good Friday) plus the swift conclusion on the final morning (Easter Sunday).

Fifteen wickets had fallen on day 1, with Surrey all out on 264 and Sussex slumping to 105/5 overnight. Three early wickets fell on the second morning before Joe Gatting, supported by the tail, got the final tally up to 196 leaving Surrey to face one over before lunch. Strolling onto the outfield to have a closer look at the pitch, it looked a lot better for batting than the scores suggested; although admittedly the chilly overcast conditions on the first day wouldn't have been ideal.

This Surrey team tends to bat in cavalier fashion bordering on the reckless, with little heed to the notion of batting the opposition out of the game before looking for the win. At 55/4 in the second innings the game was in the balance, but a brilliant partnership of 136 between Hamilton-Brown and Maynard put Surrey back in control, before another collapse from 191/4 to 210/8.

A fifty partnership for the ninth wicket between Meaker and Lewis ensure that Sussex began their chase for victory on the third morning faced with a stiff target of 342. Against Surrey's battery of pace bowlers they were always going to be second favourites, and the final day began with them on 240/8; young Luke Wells standing firm on 96 not out. Wells completed his century thanks to an uncharacteristing misfield from substitute fielder Jason Roy, but was last man out after just under 45 minutes of play.

The Sussex attack looked at least one bowler light with Wright and Panesar missing whereas Surrey's greater bowling resources, with all four main seamers taking at least two wickets in the first innings and the experienced Batty on hand to provide a spin option, stood them in good stead.

Next up for Surrey is a trip to Lord's for the "London derby" with Middlesex, last year's other promoted team, and with two of the following three games being against most people's relegation favourites Worcestershire there looks to be a good opportunity to establish a firm position among the leaders over the next four weeks.

MCCA Trophy Group 3, Herefordshire v Cumberland at Eastnor CC played Sunday 22 April 2012; scorecard: £1; No admission

Sterling work by the groundstaff enabled the game to take place. Eastnor is a glorious rural setting with the castle next door, set in a valley close to Ledbury. Cumberland struggled on a slow, damp pitch and were 53/5 before Alex Atkinson (53) and Chris Thompson (40) led a revival. The visitors totalled 174/7 in 46 overs after two interruptions for showers. Herefordshire’s revised D/L target was 195 in 46 overs. They looked well set at 98/2 before left arm spinner Toby Bulcock, the Carnforth professional took two wickets in two balls. Off-spinner James Lowe then got to work, claiming five wickets and Bulcock got the last as Herefordshire were 154 all out just after 6-30pm.

Good match selection, GrundyHiller! Of the eight matches scheduled for yesterday, that was the only one played to a proper result. Berkshire (playing a home game at Henley, which is in Oxfordshire) beat Wales under D/L, and the other six matches were rained out.

MCCA Trophy Group 3: Cumberland v Northumberland at Tynefield Park, Penrith (Sunday 29Apr12); No admission; Scorecards (£1) and county yearbook (£5) available

Miraculously play began on time despite heavy rain on the M6 northbound and glowering skies. The Penrith ground, Tynefield Park, which is in an elevated position close to J40 of the M6 on Wetheriggs Road was bone dry. Northumberland surprisingly elected to bat and were bowled out for 142 at, spookily, 1.42pm. Skipper Adam Craggs hit 27 off 78 balls and tail-ender Stuart Graham made an unbeaten 30 to repair the damage from 78/7. For Cumberland SLA Toby Bulcock continued his fine form with a spell of 4/17 and a run out while offspinner James Beaumont conceded just 17 runs from his ten overs. Cumberland would have fancied their chances but rain during the lunch interval ruined hopes of further play. With no let-up in sight the captains shook hands at 4-15pm.

Wednesday 2nd May and Thursday 3rd May.
LV County Championship Division 2.
YORKSHIRE v LEICESTERSHIRE . At Scarborough Cricket Club.
Admission £ 15 / £10.
Score Card £1

Having got a week off work decided to have a few days away just out side Scarborough, leicestershire were playing Yorkshire at Scarborough cricket club. A chance to tick off Scarborough cricket ground. An excellent ground. Liked the tea room. It was doing a roaring trade in the cold weather.
DAY 1.
Leicestershire won toss and put Yorkshire in on a over cast day and it payed off as Yorkshire were soon 33-3. Skipper Gale and Bairstow rallied and took Yorkshire to lunch at 84-3. Gale and Bairstow both passed 50 as they pushed the score along. Gale was finally caught behind for 80 as the pair put on 160 for the 4th wicket. At tea Yorkshire were 207-4. Bairstow completed his century and finished the day on 141 not out. He had also put on an unbroken partnership of 112 for the 6th Wicket with A.McGrath who was 49 not out at close. Yorkshire closed on 329-5.

DAY2.
This was the coldest day of cricket i have been to in a long time. even both teams fielded in hats., something i have not seen in 20 years of watching cricket.
Bairstow and McGrath continued day 2 as they finished day 1 , Bairstow completing 150 and McGrath his 50 . Bairstow was finally out for 182, an excellent innnings .The pair put on 159 for the 6th wicket. McGrath was finally out for 90 just after lunch as Yorkshire were all out for 447. In Yorkshire's innings Bresnan was brilliantly ran out by Wayne White from out on the boundary. White was the pick of the bowlers taking 5 wickets. Leicestershire soon found the going tough and went in to tea at 50-5. They were all out for 116. McGrath picking up 4 wickets and Patterson 3 wickets. Leicestershire followed on and in 2 overs lost Greg Smith for 3 . Close of play 3-1.

MCCA Trophy Group 3, Cheshire v Cumberland (at Christleton CC) played Sunday 6 May 2012; No admission; Scorecards: 50pence

A fantastic game that produced 623 runs for 9 wickets on a great batting pitch that had been under water earlier in the week; Cheshire prevailed by one run at 6-26pm. New skipper James Duffy and K Sawas on debut both scored hundreds in Cheshire’s 312/4. Duffy made 100 off 101 balls with four fours and seven sixes, but his superb knock was eclipsed by Sawas’s undefeated 119 off 89 balls with 11 fours and seven sixes.

Jonathan Miles hit 54 off 60 balls to get Cumberland off to a good start, Liam Livingstone supplied the fireworks with 62 off 42 balls including five sixes and five fours. Skipper Gary Pratt hit a magnificent undefeated 104 off 93 balls including five fours and five sixes but Adam Syddall kept his nerve to bowl two dot balls at the end.

Also at this one - absolutely cracking game - I think its the highest overall number of runs I've seen in a 50 over game that I've ever been at - though one slight correction, Cumberland did scramble a single off the last ball to take them onto 311... but no chance of a second. I also thought indiscipline at the end of the Cheshire innings by Cumberland enhanced the target by 15 runs at least - they scored 42 off the last two overs and a few of the Cumberland players were really turning on their captain at this stage.

Wasn't massively impressed by the ground tbh - it was good to see a lot of runs after the damp pitches encountered so far this season but many of the MCCA grounds have more character... also no food on which with a decent crowd was disappointing and the pub down the road was extortionate (£8 a sandwich)

Sunday May 13th

MCCA Knock out Trophy Bedfordshire v Oxfordshire at Cople Argus. No admission charge Scorecard for a donation (most gave a £). Two sausages in a roll £2 (delicious!)

Oxfordshire 261-9 Bedfordshire 159-9 (one man short as one of their batsmen retired after a nasty blow in the face from the ball)

Finally got my season under way after the recent appalling weather at this attractive ground on the outskirts of Bedford which I had never heard of till I spotted this fixture. The home club prepared well for the day and it all went very smoothly on a surprisingly dry pitch. However, Bedfordshire were outplayed and it was a very easy victory for the visitors in front of a reasonable size crowd including a gathering of groundhoppers numbering double figures who struggled to keep warm on a chilly day for mid May.

Sunday May 6th
Indian Premier League
M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore
Royal Challengers Bangalore 185/5 (18.5 Overs) beat Deccan Chargers 181/2 (20 Overs)
Ticket: 2750 Rupees (app. £35)
Biscuits: 60 Rupees (app. 75p)
Coke: 40 Rupees (app. 50p)

My first experience of the IPL. An 8pm start, with two "strategic time outs" (or ad breaks if you like) per innings to make the match slightly longer than a T20 over here.

Ticket prices ranged from about £5 - £500 (depending on location and amount of hospitality (!) required). We went for lower tier roughly behind the bowlers arm with zero hospitality (i.e. you purchased your own food/drink). I've been to cricket in India before so I wasn't surprised when we weren't allowed to take food/drink purchased before the start of play to our seats. However, you could also purchase the same food/drink from vendors throughout the match without leaving your seat!!

Bangalore won the toss (greeted enthuiastically by the large crowd), decided to bowl and were set a target of over 9 an over. By this time, having heard both teams "theme tunes" (played after boundaries/wickets) umpteen times I had declared them equally nauseating (unlike the cheerleaders).

Bangelore's reply was stop/start (e.g. Chris Gayle hit a six out of the ground and was bowled next ball attempting a repeat). The 18th over was pivotal. The rate had reached 13 an over, when AB de Villiers took 23 off Dale Steyn's bowling. Four balls later, de Villiers had levelled the scores. The non-striker during this carnage (I forget who) was left to hit the winning runs next ball.

Most of the crowd seemed to stay on for the after match presentations etc. so getting away wasn't a problem. A good evening's entertainment (but I'll always prefer Tests).

Seaton Burn 42 all out (19.0 overs), Ashington 43-4 (17.0 overs) - Division A2 Twenty twenty cup - attendance 8

Twice this season I've tried to get to see Seaton Burn play football on the adjacent pitch, and this was my second attempt to see this game after a late abandonment last Tuesday (and indeed the fifth attempt to play round one before round 2 tomorrow...) The pitch really was doing all kinds of things, and walking around the boundary really was quite sodden in parts (which explained the low scores in part).... but it was just a massive relief to get the game in.

Seaton Burn is around a 20 minute bus ride from Newcastle, and is quite a pleasant area (technically in North Tyneside authority) - the nearby Moor House pub is probably worth a visit just for the wide array of free food available on the bar. The walk to the ground involves passing a field full of goats, sheep and chicken and really has a rural feel (number of dog walkers briefly added to the attendance) - although tranquility was undermined by it being on a flight path and very close to the A1....

As stated, the pitch was sodden, runs were very difficult to come by, but it did also exemplify the unfortunate gap between divisions A1 and A2 (Ashington having finished bottom of the former last year but taking a flyer in the latter) - and it would also be fair to say that the facilities at grounds in the higher division are generally a lot higher... though that is not to dissuade anyone from coming here because they are a very friendly club.

Who'd have thought they charge that sort of money in a Third World country. I know India's economy is supposed to be doing well but these sort of prices means the local shanty town inhabitants have no chance of being able to watch cricket. By the way, do they issue scorecards or programmes at IPL matches?

Didn't see any progs/scorecards. Tickets also only seemed to be available on a match by match basis so we didn't get our tickets til the day before the game. Not sure if you can get round this by buying online.
There were long queues to buy tickets on the night with people coming in long after the start. I saw an article in one of the papers in Bangalore about touts offering tickets for double money to people at the back of the queue!

Re Cheshire v Herefordshire on Sunday, I've received the following message from the Cheshire secretary

"Just to let you know that the game on Sunday, if played, will be at Bramhall.

However, I have just come back from the ground and there is not a bat in hell’s chance of the game going ahead. The water table is up to the level of the outfield and walking over that and the run-ups is like bouncing up and down on a water filled sponge. It is soft and soggy and would be dangerous to play on – even for club 3rd XIs. Juniors might get away with it if they didn’t mind getting wet."

Looks like I'll be going to Wakefield for the rugby instead!

Nottinghamshire Cricket Board Premier League
Wollaton Sports Association, Wollaton
Wollaton won the toss and opted to bowl

Clifton 232 all out (49.1 overs)
Wollaton 132 all out (34.2 overs iirc)

Clifton win in the league again on a poor wicket (Wollaton always is from what I gather from regulars). Mansfield Hosiery Mills await at home next week, could be interesting as they scored 323/5 in 46 overs in a winning draw.

Southern Cricket League 20/20 cup 1st round

Hambledon 113-8 (20 Overs) lost to Fawley 116-4 (17.5 overs)
Admission/team sheet: no
Tea: Free - weather too cold to charge the tea lady said!
They did have Fullers London Pride for £2 a pint but at that price it had to be dicey.
Att: 42


Fed up with chasing clubs to reply to pre-season friendly requests and a dry day forecast I was looking forward to my 1st game of cricket for the season, heading to the birthplace of cricket, but alas Hambledon rarely play at Broadhalfpenny down much these days, instead at Ridge Meadow which whilst closer to the village is still out in the middle of nowhere off the road to Droxford.

Ground is pleasant enough wooden clubhouse and changing rooms next to the nets as you enter the ground with a few benches spread around the boundary, although most of us simply spent the time walking around the pitch taking in the views both of the cricket and countryside.

As for the match, Hambledon batted first and never really got going bar a 54 run partnership for the 4th wicket. Very few boundaries as Fawley's fielders threw themselves about willingly.

Fawley struggled early on and at one stage were 30-3 of 10 overs, but step forward the opening batsman who then crashed, banged and walloped a quickfire 64 after struggling before the 3rd wicket went down.

One absolutely stunning catch with a Hambledon fielder at Mid on running backwards towards the boundary then diving full length to grab it.

Sunday 20 May 2012: Bradford Cricket League Priestley Cup Second Round: Pudsey St Lawrence v Woodlands; Admission: £3 including programme; raffle ticket: £1

PSL’s ground is a historic one where Len Hutton learnt his cricket; it’s well appointed and has a lovely, revamped pavilion with bar serving real ale and excellent tea facilities. The braised steak barm cakes and pork pies were fabulous. Holders of the Priestley Cup, PSL were well beaten for the second day in a row by Woodlands who looked a class apart. The experienced Peter Swanepoel and Safraz Ahmed captured four early wickets and only Chris Marsden’s fighting 29 delayed the inevitable as PSL were bowled out for 91. PSL fought hard but Woodlands won with five wickets and 20 overs to spare.
I called in at Hullenedge Road on the way home, another lovely cricket ground, where prolific West Indian Lorenzo Ingram’s 66 steered Elland to a six wickets win over Shepley in the Huddersfield Cricket League

Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

18/05/2012 CC D1 New Road Worcester

Worcestershire 259ao V Sussex 143/0 bad light then rain stopped play.

Coffee £1.80 (!!!)

Frustrating day as it seemed OK at the start but ended up raining by 4pm. Could easily have played until tea but the Umpires went off for bad light at 15.20 with Joyce and Nash clearly in "danger" milking the bowling at 5 rpo. getting utterly sick of umpires windbagging over bad light particularly in this season. Needs to be stopped NOW as it makes a mockery of the game. the laws say it must be dangerous yet the interpretation is something like

"if more than three clouds are present overhead we will go off in Test or Championship cricket except when a result is imminent. In a one day game this applies in the first innings but not in the second inns or if a result is imminent in which case you could have Colin croft and Andy Roberts bowling in the pitch black but would still carry on playing". UTTER NONSENSE.

Retired to the Plough for a couple of pints of MHB Black Pear and a pleasant natter with a number of other cricket fans...

By this time last year I had doen 5 games....
