SAC had two excellent wins last weekend. On Saturday SAC played St. Brice in a thrilling 35 over match. St. Brice won the toss and elected to bat first. SAC took wickets steadily throughout the innings and St Brice were bowled out for 205 in the 30th over. Yaesin Shikdar and Stephen Hackett took two wickets apiece, but the highlight of the innings was Finlay Andersson’s first senior wicket – clean bowled! In reply, SAC were cruising to victory at 95 for 1, but a flurry of wickets then gave St. Brice the advantage. Thodi Andersson’s 59 then wrestled back the advantage to SAC. Eight down, SAC needed five runs to win from three overs. Yaesin had just hit a huge 6, and Thodi was looking unstoppable. All looked under control. But then Thodi (surely intentionally…?) decided to hole-out to deep mid-wicket in order to ensure young Finlay at no. 11 got to bat. And so it was left to Finlay and Yaesin to see SAC to victory, which they achieved thanks to their calmness under pressure (as well as the inside edge of Yaesin’s bat down to fine leg for four!!!). A super finish to an excellent match.

On Sunday, SAC welcomed once again Le Croc Sportif from the UK. The guests batted first, but were all out for 147 as a result of some excellent SAC bowling. Everyone bowled well, with Money Singh taking three wickets and Pushpendra Yadav two wickets, while John Hardy bowled the ball of the day. In reply, Shakeel Ahmad vindicated the captain-on-the-day’s dubious decision to promote him to open with an explosive 84 not out, and together with George Colley (38 not out), took SAC to a comfortable eight-wicket victory. Shakeel was spotted after the game explaining to the gathered fans that a forward defensive stroke is really quite unnecessary for the modern-day opener…
