Legget & Coe EUCC Sixes

Saturday 30th November

Game 1: Carlton v Edinburgh University Alumni (Haris reports)

DJ ru man won the toss and put the opposition in on a flat deck at MES.

Wisely he opened with Haris Aslam, a leg spinner who knew the conditions of these pitches very well as he basically lives there. A tight bowling and fielding display which included a near hat-trick for Stevie Elder restricted the opposition to a mere 62. After a quick turn around, Omar and Elder (the best opening partnership in the under 15 indoor competition 10 years ago) took to the crease and put on a fine display with Omar retiring on 25 before Stevie was caught out.

With very little difficulty, Ahmed, with his deft touches, and DJ Ru, with his ability to hit the straight ones, saw the Carltonians victorious in their first game of the tournament!

Game 2: Carlton v Edinburgh University (Ruari reports)

After a solid start to the indoor sixes, the youthful fist arrows were ready for the next match.  The captain for the day continued his 100% record with the coin; Carlton would bowl first ...

Again, Haris opened the bowling with a controlled over to start proceedings, and with some quick wickets for the arrows unit Edinburgh Uni found themselves 3 down with Elder and Ahmad continuing to bowl well. However, over 4, fat boy Omar to bowl: wide, wide, wide, and after that over the Uni found themselves in a promising position with Cheeky still to bowl. More wides from him along with byes from the part time keeper meant the Uni side finished on a familiar total of 61. 62 to win again.  

It was wee Elder and not so wee Omar to open the batting. The Runs were flowing with good rotation of the strike mixed with some elegant strikes from Omar, but bang bang, Edinburgh Uni struck, both openers out in the space of 3 balls. This meant that Haris  (Gray Nicolls sponsored player) and DJ Ru Mac had to finish off with an over and a half to spare, 2/2  - good start from Carlton.

Game 3: Carlton v Edinburgh Accies (Omar reports)

So Carlton won the toss again and chose to bowl as we had done the previous 2 games. Bowling order still the same with Haris opening; he bowled well especially this game as he had a point to prove to Cheeky on who's the best spinner at Carlton. He picked up 2 wickets in his over with great fielding by Omar as usual. Ahmad continued in the second over with his new run up with some great pace bowling, not giving many runs away. Then Elder continued with his usual slow bowling which brought him a wicket. Omar then stepped up only to bowl a few wides but did take a wicket. Cheeky bowls the last over and gets pumped for 17 as usual in this tournament. The target was 53, which Omar and Stevie thought was easy.

The brilliant opening partnership of Omar and Elder went to the crease. Omar facing first ball and gets to a flying start with 13 in the first over. Omar hitting the ball all round the park making the opposition team run around. Elder was bowled in the second over which brought Haris to the crease. Omar and Haris put on a 30 run partnership with Haris hitting a six and Omar just playing sensibly. Needing 8 off the last over Omar hits a 4 first ball. Feeling confident Omar tried to hit a six to finish the game of but was caught on the boundary. Ruari comes to the crease only to get out first ball LBW. Next in was Cheeky who was very very nervous, but resorts to his default shot to get three runs, game was tied with two balls left, Haris on strike with Cheeky screaming at the other end 'wait for the wide'. Haris runs down the track to hit a single for Carlton to win the tournament in convincing style. Man of the tournament was awarded to Omar for his brilliant batting and fielding display. Honestly.
