The joy of six!

Winchmore Hill CC Sunday 20 July 2014

JUDD STREET TIGERS 240-9 beat CINCINNATI CC 89 all out by 151 runs

Latest averages

Six-wicket hauls in 35/40-over cricket are as rare as rocking-horse poo or a goal from Ricky van Wolfswinkel. That it should be achieved by someone who, even by his own admission, would only regard himself as a part-time bowler, is even more remarkable. Perhaps not so now, as Mike Delanian’s bag of 6-31 propelled him to the top of the Tigers’ bowling averages (9 wickets at 9.11 each). This, following Ian Porton’s excellent 81 and a rapid 47 not out from Chris Wright, set up a comprehensive victory over one of only two sides to defeat the Tigers in 2013.

Justice for the Winchester eight!

Sunday 6 July 2014 – Winchester Leisure Centre

JUDD STREET TIGERS 150-7 beat THE RACQUTEERS CC 101-6 by 49 runs

This was a trip that nearly didn’t happen, beset with problems from the very start. Firstly, the projected Saturday fixture with The Plums was abandoned when the opposition pulled out. Then, with so many players on vacation and others unavailable, a team could barely be scraped together. Eventually, eight stalwarts were mustered and a decision was made to gamble and go ahead despite the unappealing weather projection. Continue reading “Justice for the Winchester eight!”

Fives have a wonderful time!

(With apologies to Enid Blyton)

WINCHMORE HILL CC – Sunday 29 June 2014

JUDD STREET TIGERS 181 all out lost to FIVES CC 183-6 by 4 wickets

Latest averages here

What has happened to the Tigers? Their seeming invincibility appears to have evaporated into the gloom following a third defeat in as many weeks, despite posting reasonably imposing totals of 174, 216, and on this occasion – 181. The bowlers have performed well early in their opponents’ innings, only to lose control in the final 20 overs. Last Sunday it was too few bowling options that cost the Tigers; this time it was probably too many, added to the problem of having to field in the intermittent dribbly rain and bowl with a wet, soft ball on an increasingly dead pitch.

Tigers tamed in Octopus’s garden

Sunday 22 June 2014 St.Aloysius Sports Ground, Highgate

JUDD STREET TIGERS 216 all out lost to OCTOPUS CC 219-7 by 3 wickets

The Tigers fell to their second successive defeat against a determined Octopus on a fine summer’s day for cricket. The teams were evenly matched, but the visitors could only muster ten bodies, eight full members being unavailable on the day. The captain did his best to round up some strays, even inviting Sachin Tendulkar – visiting nearby Hampstead CC – but to no avail, the lack of a recognised fifth bowler and an extra fielder proving decisive to the outcome.

Tigers 2 Casual

Winchmore Hill CC Sunday 15 June 2014

JUDD STREET TIGERS 174 all out lost to N2 CASUALS 176-5 by 5 wickets

Latest averages

The Tigers slipped to a disappointing defeat to a resurgent N2 Casuals at a chilly Winchmore Hill, their knock of 174 on a placid wicket being about 30 runs short of par. Stewart Taylor’s measured 54 and Craig Murray’s pugnacious 31 were the only batting highlights as no fewer than five men fell lbw, mostly hitting across the line. Continue reading “Tigers 2 Casual”


WINCHMORE HILL CC Sunday 8 June 2014

JUDD STREET TIGERS 156-7 beat LONDON SAINTS 139-6 by 17 runs
JUDD STREET TIGERS 78-1 beat SUNDERLAND SC 74 all out by 9 wkts

The Tigers retained the Lord Nelson trophy with a narrow victory over London Saints and a more emphatic one over the Sunderland Select IX, Stewart Taylor taking the Tigers’ first ever hat-trick in the second match. Chris Wright made 77 not out in the clash with the Saints, but the best batting of the day came from Saints’ Louis Patel, with 85 not out against Sunderland and another 50 against the Tigers.

Barnaby bears the brunt

1 June 2014

JUDD STREET TIGERS 108-8 beat EASTONS CC 107 all out by 2 wickets

Latest averages

In a bum-squeaking finale, last pair Matt Webster and Steve Bignell scrambled 10-man Tigers to an exciting victory with just over 2 overs to spare. In a low-scoring contest dominated by the bowlers, Barnaby Pinfield’s classic innings of 60 proved the deciding factor against one of only two teams to down the Tigers’ colours last season. An excellent all-round effort in the field dismissed the home side for only 107, but two disastrous collapses looked to have scuppered the Tigers’ chances. Continue reading “Barnaby bears the brunt”

Graces under pressure

Winchmore Hill CC Sunday 25 May 2014

JUDD STREET TIGERS 110-3 beat GRACES CC 109 all out by 7 wickets

Latest averages

A great bowling performance against a strong Graces batting side saw the Tigers to their fourth win in 5 games. Steve Bignell achieved his first ‘five-for’ bowling analysis for 19 years with 5-33 and in reply, Chris Dane’s excellent 49 not out – the only batsman to pass 20 on a sluggish pitch where timing the ball proved awkward – was good enough to see the Tigers to a comfortable victory.
