Chingford Cricket Club Weekday XI v Angelo Bass' XI on Wed 12 Jul 2006 at 11:30
Chingford Cricket Club Lost 36 runs

Match report Peter Hall contacted the club to inform us that he would not be able to bring a side to play in this year's cricket week so Angelo Bass valiantly stepped in to organise an opposition, made up from a number of the Hawkes club who had played Chingford in the Twenty20 cup game the previous Friday. Confusingly, the Angelo Bass XI did not include the ertwhile leggie, who donned his Chingford whites as normal and the visitors were instead led by Sam Kirnon. This brought McMurray and Kirnon into direct captaincy confrontation for the second day running, with Kirnon anxious to demonstrate that he could do what McMurray had failed to do yesterday and beat his own team mates.
McMurray chose to open the bowling himself and with some handy seamers left the visitors in trouble with 4 wickets down. A fifth wicket stand rescued the situation thanks in the main to McMurray's aim to use 8 bowlers and most of the Chingford fielders aim to eat 8 courses at lunchtime. A declaration seemed imminent but the collapse of the visitors tail left Chingford needing only 270 to win. I say only as this was again aother belter of a batting track.
The Chingford reply started miserably and at tea, two wickets were down and not even 50 yet scored. After tea a now set Bass opened up and with MacGregor, looked to be putting Chingford in the driving seat but both fell in quick succession. When McMurray dragged one on the match was in danger of disintegrating into a one sided affair. Lenny Daniels, taking advantage of the opportunity to bat at No7 and with the excuse that 7 an over were needed to win, managed to reduce the asking rate to 6 an over. He struck the ball hard and with gay abandon. He was within 4 runs of his first ever 50 when he hit the ball straight down long on's throat. Fortunatly, by now, Graem Peters was also into his stride and even though wickets continued to fall, the draw seemed the least likely outcome. Then it all went wrong as Peters and MacGregor got involved in a run out that saw the end of the former's innings. With the last pair at the crease, Kirnon moved in for the kill with close catchers all around the bat. With MacGregor at the crease, victory was still not out of reach. However, a straight delivery ripped through the Blake defences and Chingford has come up well short of the target.
Another excellent game played in excellent spirits and kept alive by some generous captaincy from Kirnon. (Either that, or he was utterly clueless in knowing where to set a field for Peters)
