Comments on the Match

The 2008 season kicked off with a friendly match against Pak Orient away. A late withdrawal and an alcohol fuelled Saturday night meant that we started the match with nine men. Skipper Westy won the toss and decided to have a bat. It was a good decison as he and Sgt. Pepper Palfrey got us off to a great start. Sgt. was enjoying swinging his new meat and slapping the ball around the park. Westy showed his class with some tasty looking strokes as the openers operated at seven runs an over. Eventually Sgt. was bowled after a quick fire 37. Westy made 51 and retired at the drinks break in the 15th over. Di Perna and Arnab were next in and kept the run rate ticking over very nicely. They looked in good nick but were eventually both out caught but not before they had stamped their mark on the game (Di Perna 34 and Arnab 28). The last few overs saw Furlonger (12 not out), Khanna (12)and Northover on debut (1) push the MCC to 210 off their allocated 30 overs (35 extras). Bob Boulder got a rare chance to shine with the bat and looked in a class of his own when he faced and survived the final ball. Even with nine men we felt that we had a decent enough score to defend and so it proved. The new ball combination of Boulder and Northover got stuck in to the hosts straight away. The Skipper decided to bowl the pair through and they both picked up a wicket a piece for their efforts. Debutant Greg Koch got the chance to shine with the ball and did not disapoint. Arnab held on to a catch in the covers to give him his first wicket for the MCC. Not content with a dazzling 50 the Skipper picked up 3 wickets of his own. The catching was of the highest standard throughout the match and Wilson, Northover and Koch held on to beauties. Khanna mopped up the tail with his leggies and picked up a two for. Di Perna kept well and had a hand in a stumping and a run out as the hosts were eventually skittled for 156. Special thanks also to Heather the scorer. The scorebook has never looked so tidy or so colourful.

Comments on the Match

Mcc opening home fixture at the Hirschanger brought over Uk tourists Alans Ovaries from the multi cultural cesspit that is London. MCC were denied any Friday night victims at the Chinese Tower as the naive tourists chose rather to stay near to the airport. Basics. And thus a refreshed touring team walked through the English Garden ready to take on Munich. Apparently they were somewhat suprised that we didnt have a grass pitch. MCC were asked to bat first on a slightly damp slippery when wet plastic bag. Lovell provided their opening bowler with his first ever wicket after honing his teutonic action in the Lords nets over the winter. Weston hit a full bunger buffet ball straight to a fielder. Palfrey was alleged to have ran Arnab out for missing the train back from LJ. Algar proved that a week was a long time in cricket with a blob after 83 in LJ. Wright hit a few lusty blows in his 20 before he went weather watching. Amongst all this Palfrey batted serenely before the pressure of Angus’s 2Mass bet that he would score at least 75 got the better of him. The big can man himself Furlonger – how can we sleep when our cans are burning? – with a well made 26 ensured MCC posted a respectable total of 179 in their 40overs. In reply the highlight was a fantastic catch by Weston in the gully area. Diving upwards and taking a popped delivery behind his heid. Tremendous effort that. Veteran Chris Langfelder, a late addition to the team at literally the eleventh hour, ensured a comfortable victory with two quick wickets around the drinks break.

Comments on the Match

Pre season friendlies are about improving fitness and team spirit. The outcome of the match is sometimes irrelevant. Whilst improving fitness and spirit on a mild Sunday afternoon, the following occured: Scott and Wilson sent down mean and economical over after over and took a few wickets between them. Ross and Sear tried to do the former, but settled for the latter, Ross spectacularly so with a quadruple haul. Arnab and Gus ensured we had a target to chase. Wright improved his fitness. Greg Koch and Jessica offered glimmers of hope for the season with some accurate bowling and a key wicket interspersed between some pretty loose stuff. When it was the MCCs turn to rest on the sidelines the events that unfolded 40 yards from the suntrapped spots the majority of us occupied included: Westy excercising his swing to such effect that this friendly might result in some worried captains in the Bavarian League this year. Arnab not only anchored the innings but anchored whilst scoring. No Tavare here. Wright failed to improve his fitness further. Gus ensured we had a target to chase. Sear improved fitness but increased short term heart attack risk by running like a cnut. Wilson familiarised himself with the middle. 3rd longest stay out there on this day. Ship steadier. Morgan hit a few lusty blows. Greg, Ross and Scott wanted nothing more than not to trouble Senor Bradly too much. The result is, as previously stated, irrelevant, but for those who are interested, we did in fact not win.

Comments on the Match

A comfortable victory against CCB in this friendly in the English Garden. After losing the toss MCC were reluctantly asked to field. After some erratic opening overs bowlers settled into their straps. Major Majid picked up a couple of scalps on debut. 2pot Wilson similar if not better. Northover was miserly and nagging as most Brummies are. Weston picked up three wickets somehow with his liquorice allsorts and lollipops. Hobbs also took a wicket on debut. Some good catches again and the visitors descended to 135all out. The two LJ victims Angus and Arnab got the MCC off to a slow possibly slightly unsteady start reminiscent of their night train back from Slovenia. All aboard. No. The victory was never in danger though as Rich di Perna (44no) and Majid with a few lusty blows (28) and Clare Rich (12no) took the team home to a 7 wicket victory and to a very early kick off in the Chinese Tower. Bourbon Train. Choo choo.

Comments on the Match

On a glorious day the match got under way after delaying tactics by the MCC, who were awaiting the arrival of their strike bowler from Ikea. Scott bowled his usual repertoire of jaffas and wides and Gale kept things tight but the Anzac trio of Palfrey, Wilson and later Westy P1 made hay. Fielding was lethargic, catching poor, extras aplenty. Tasman Palfrey was dropped early on but he regained composure to secure a splendid ton, batting through the Anzac innings. Majid arrived in time to bowl at the death, limiting the total to mere manic proportions. After a solid start from the MCC, wickets tumbled and a win never looked likely. A few heaves towards the end ensured a degree of respectability but the MCC were still way shy of their target when bowled out. The Anzacsaffers shared the wickets between them and headed for a triumphant mass or 5.

Comments on the Match

On a stinking hot day in the sticks MCC were taken to the Pakistani sword with a resounding 5 wicket butchering. Lovell won the toss as usual and a great start ensured with Weston falling for a golden. Weston’s P1 buddy Wright did not enjoy his innings especially the running aspect. Algar batted well and would have got more if his bat wasnt so brittle. Majid battled nicely and there were runs for Matt Fudge on debut at end of innings as MCC closed on 131 for 7 in their 20overs. This could have been enough after the hosts slumped to 10-2 early with two catches by Buckets Green Overralls Giles both off bowling of Sajid. But then the bowling went haywire, the batting became brutal and Finch threw a hissy fit in a unmemorable performance all round.

Comments on the Match

With a soggy outfield, a slippery pitch and a sense of more bad weather to come, MCC went in to bat in a reduced, 25 over match. Palfrey (43) led the way in the batting, as is becoming the norm, putting together a 50 partnership with Wrighty (24). The boundary was being troubled but not battered and after contributions from Clare (22) Dennis (11), Majid (10) and Sobek (10) the lads scraped together a total of 155. An early wicket brought signs of promise however, it wasn’t to be. Dinner jacket Jim took to the bowling attack and carted a buffet of sixes and fours. Clare bagged a pair but it wasn’t the MCCs day as the Pak Orient managed to reel in the total in 23 overs. A generous birthday present for Mr. Bhatti and the lads continued to make him feel at home by helping to polish of some curry and plenty cans from the keg of Augustiner.

Comments on the Match

Debuts – Tony Magyar and Venkat MCC lost the toss were put into the field to graze as CCB made 158-9 of their 20 overs. Westy shared out the bowling duties amongst the team. The pick of the bowlers was Ross with 3-29 and Charlie Anzacsaffer Hobbs with 3-24. The hightlight of the fielding was a fine running catch by the stand-in skipper – Westy. With nearly 8 an over to win Ross and Westy got the MCC off to a good start before Westy holed out in the cow area – scoopage. Ross soon followed with a lazy shot to mid wicket – catching practice. This brought Majid to the crease to bat with the club number 3 Sobek who was not willing to sacrifice his wicket this week and duly run out the most dangerous batsman remaining. As the wickets tumbled MCC fell way behind the run rate and it was a case of batting the overs out to get some respectability back to the match. Venkat hit some nice late blows mostly over cover.

Comments on the Match

MCC suprisingly won the toss although it was only a formaility as the skippers had agreed prior to the toss to do the opposite of game 1. The batting order was reversed and the MCC stuttered towards a total until Majid came in and added some valuable runs to help post 111 for 8 of the allotted overs. Looking light on the runs side the MCC needed to bowl CCB out to stand a chance of winning. An early breakthrough came from Weston, then Venkat grabbed his first pole for the club when makeshift wicketkeeper – Sobek – snared a rising edge. At 25 – 5 of 7 overs this game had plenty of life. Like previous Twenty20s we let the game out of our grasp as catches were spilled, fielding went to pieces and CCB eased home in the 19th over to win by 4 wickets.

Comments on the Match

MCC won the toss and batted. All the top four filled their boots with Algar (33) putting on 68 for the first wicket with the captain Lovell before Algar was run out to a direct hit. Club No 3 Sobek (38) played his leg side shots well and made his alleged high score for the club putting on 80 with Lovell. Lovell fell tired for 78 before Majid took up the attack with some nice hits in his 46. Miller also notched up double figures. Rain was unfortunately brewing this side of the Forschungsbrewery and despite repeated attempts (on and off with the covers) and 2 nice slip catches from the skipper the game had to be abandoned and the masses flowed later in the aforementioned brewery to round off the damp weekend.

Comments on the Match

Having lost the toss MCC were asked to graze in the lush English Garden. Overall too many catches went down starting from the 2nd over and as a result when that happens against Pakistani opposition you are going to be punished and spend alot of futile time chasing leather. Predictably Pak Orient comfortably reached 200. Embleton and Ross were the pick of the bowlers with Herschelle Gibbs also bowling a useful late spell. Mcc got off to good start before Albertz had to be stretchered off with an injured side. There then followed the traditional MCC collapse with Sobers, Ben, Hazza and Wright all falling to the inspired bowling of Waqar. Angus joined the skipper for some cans and they put on 81 to bring MCC up to scratch and in with a sneaky chance. However Lovell (48) and Gus (35) both fell in quick succession with about 70 needed and the innings subsided in reasonably morgue like fashion.

Summary of Match Result

Mcc lost to be fair. However some cynics have suggested that we would have won on 15over rule. Pods.

Comments on the Match

Thanks to the nine fearless souls that braved the Westpark pampas grass and minute postage stamp boundaries. With weather worries around the match was immediately reduced to 30ov. Unfortunately for various pointless reasons we also only had 9men and lost the toss and fielded. One didnt really need fielders in some positions as the pampas grass was so deep the ball was getting stuck and in danger of getting lost by ones ankle. Thus MCC were able to restrict the home side early doors with good bowling by Ben, Pryke and Majid. After 15overs the home side were going nowhere. Obviously after that point we were a couple of bowlers short and there was not much to do other than watch the ball disappear and spend fckin hours looking for it. Pointless. Seriously though thanks to Doug, Dave and Gus for braving it and seeing the funny side of it. 3 hours for 30overs of bowling. 1 hour and 3 mins spent looking for stray red objects and sending people on bikes to go look behind the ground. Maybe the pampas grass could be grown higher to prevent this? In reply Ben Embleton top scored with a well made 44 before he was happily triggered by the only honest man in the club Bob Mitcham. Majid hit a few lusty blows alongside Scott Miller. Giles fell agonisingly short of his 2000 runs for the Morgue CC. This will have to wait until September Mr Gharles. Pods.

MCC Man of The Match

Pryke, sutcliffe. Yorkshire. First spell of year rewarded with three cheap sticks on day.

Comments on the Match

With the skipper and vice away it was left to Garfield Sobers to take over the helm and the MCC ran out comfortable winners against the UK touring team from Medbourne. With the weather peaking at 28c and humid the MCC were delighted to win toss to have an early bat. At 93-7 it was looking quite perilous for the hosts until Moo and Madjid hit some lusty blows and put on 45 for the 8th wicket. At the top of the order Morgue, Cans Giezen, Kans Khanna and Mule Miller all got a start but were unable to kick on. Jan Ullrich was unable to score his first run for the club but hung around for 16 balls and took part in the third highest partnership with Kans Khanna – 21 for the 5th wicket. At 149 ao in the 32nd over, (an excellent fielding display from Medbourne) it was looking like an under par score but an excellent opening spell from Steve Harmison Scott and Mad Madjid, 19 runs from first 15 overs, brought the hosts back into the game. Finger of Fudge and Moo continued the good bowling and picked up more wickets to put the MCC firmly in control. As the game petered out Algar, Cans Giezen and Garfield Sobers all got a chance to turn their arms over. Medbourne ao for 69 in the 30th over. Highlights of MCC fielding: the winning catch by the Mule Miller, run out by Cans Giezen and Garfield Sobers. A good team effort against a very sociable guys from the UK. A pleasure to host them in the English Garden and take them to the tower for a few beers.

MCC Man of The Match

Moo Gale, third highest scorer and excellent bowling. Madjid runs him close for same reason but three wickets for two runs makes sure he gets the nod.

Comments on the Match

Saturday was a stinking hot day for a double header 20/20 in the Hirschanger vs CCB. We were fielding 3 real-life young Germans which is possibly some sort of club record. MCC batted first in the first game and were cruising at 49/1 after 7 overs with Bachstadt and Clare peppering the leg side. Then the wheels well and truly came off with everyone out either bowled or run out by Weston. Sobek particularly happy about this. Only a last wicket stand between wet-clubbers Westy and Wrighty pushed the total over 100. The fielding and bowling were similarly poor and CCB cruised to the target with 8 wickets and 5 overs to spare. Low point of the game and praps entire season was 4 consecutive dropped catches off Wrighty’s bowling. I kid you not. Comedy club value.

Comments on the Match

MCC were a different unit in the field in the second game after a couple of cans and semmels each. CCB were all out for 92 with the wickets spread around with Golding, Bachstadt and Hoeck taking maiden wickets for the club. The batting order was rearranged for the second dig and Majid and Weston raced towards the target as it was nearly bourbon hour and didnt want to waste QDT. (Quality Drinking time). Both fell within sight of the target, but Sobek finished off proceedings including a six over cow.

Comments on the Match

The onset of rather moist weather put this fixture in serious doubt. However the weather gods opened a window allowing the game to go ahead in cold but dry overhead conditions. Outfield was still rather wet though due to previous precipitation. Mcc batted first with the skipper collecting his second September blob. Due. Wright and Majid both went big and batted well putting on 77 for the 2nd wicket in 11overs. Garner and Hazza finished off the innings well as MCC finished on a satisfactory 135-4 off 20. In reply the tourists were always up against it, struggling on the alien pitch to get their bearings. They made a brave fist of it but fell short on 82-8. Pick of the bowlers was Hobbs just back from Cameroon. He had to be taken off just in case he got 5 wickets. There then followed a 10over thrash as the weather permitted. 1 over per bowler. Here the visitors racked up 47 which the MCC knocked off in the last over. Fudge top scoring. Thanks go to the touring party from Swindon Nationwide, a good bunch. Cheers.

Comments on the Match

A depleted Australian line up seriously bolstered with some talented ringers and ball tickled merchants were too good for a strong MCC side in a 25over match up. Mcc racked up a good score in their 25overs. This score was brutally set upon by Weston, Di Perna and associated tickle merchants as the Aussies won easy with time to spare to attend the Oktoberfest orgy. The right hander Tom Scollay was quite possibly the best right hander ever to grace the flicx pitch.
