The weekend of 19th/20th May was a great one for the SAC cricket team, but especially for Alex Kidwell. SAC played two matches over the weekend, and won both, with Alex scoring a century in each match: 119 on Saturday and 125 not out on Sunday. Congratulations to Alex on a great achievement!
On Saturday, SAC batted first against LFP CC and made 226 for 4 off our 40 overs, with Alastair Thomas (28) and Sahil Lodha (26 not out) supporting Alex’s ton. In reply, LFP CC were bowled out for 141, with Jyothykumar Deveraj the star bowler taking 5-25.
On Sunday SAC again batted first against Aulnay CC and, on the back of Alex’s second ton, made 263 for 5 off our 40 overs, with Prebou Balane supporting Alex with 51. In reply, Azam Sadad and Nisseem Burkule bowled impressive opening spells (taking 3 and 2 wickets, respectively) to have Aulnay reeling at 50 for 5. They never recovered, as Alastair Thomas and his (very) slow inswingers mopped up the tail, taking 4-12, and Aulnay were all out for 95.
This weekend, the Seniors are on tour in Kent.
On Saturday at SAC we have the Junior Cricket Festival!
