Match report - Indcan III Vs Newton Surrey V @Chilliwack on May 1,2016 - By Sudip T.
Match was played on Sunday May 1, 2016 at the Chilliwack Ground. The weather was excellent, bright, sunny, 25C.
IndCan won the toss, and chose to bat. Harish Lalsinghani and Rajeev Krishnamurthi opened the innings, and slowly, but steadily built a solid platform. IndCan were well positioned at the first drinks break. Unfortunately, after the break, some poor shot selection from our middle order batsmen led to a collapse, and IndCan ended the innings at 66 all out. Special mention to Harish for a sensible, solid innings, scoring 25 runs, and to our youngster, Arthava, who batted at number 10, but still made a solid contribution.
Karthik Krishnaswamy and Neeraj Gaur shared the new ball for IndCan, but unfortunately, despite best efforts were unable to extract much from a pitch with very little bounce. The Newton Surrey openers played good shots, and chased the target down. We need to work on our fielding in practice, as there were a few missed chances in the field.
Would like to thank the Newton Surrey players for being very sporting and encouraging our juniors while they were batting and bowling. Look forward to our next match with them. Also, thank you to our IndCan family members who made some delicious snacks to enjoy during the innings break and after the match.
