    The first NL game was at home against Worcestershire. In the close season the powers that be in the CW world had a state of the art sound system installed at the ground and decided that a DJ would be present for all NL games. Neil Pickup got the job for this game and the Webettes led the crowd in a rendition of Groove Armada’s ‘I see you baby’ before play. The Cricket Web team showed a number of changes with the top order definitely a worry. Vimes returned as did Eclipse, and Nichani made his first appearance this season. The bowling attack remained settled and Weber had recovered from Injury and would play his first second team match of the season.

    As the Worcs openers walked out to ‘Crash and Burn’ by Busted, Malone prepared to bowl the first over. Unfortunately Pollard, Weston and Hick played very well for Worcs and late hitting from Spiring and Singh got them up to a formidable total of 283 for 4. Only Halsey could come out with any credit from the bowlers his 3 wickets included the centurian Pollard and the brilliant stumping of Solanki by Craze.

    ‘Another one bites the dust’ was heard too much early on a CW slipped to 77 for 4. BK Smith’s 71 steadied the ship and Cloete contributed 47 but at 181-7 with over a hundred needed at 6 an over it looked bleak. Enter Tom Halsey to the sounds of Elton Johns ‘Candle in the Wind’ and with support from Mr Wright and last man Chapman, Halsey’s 57* from 51 deliveries managed to haul CW to a one wicket victory with 10 balls to spare. If he didn’t deserve the MOM award in the last match he certainly deserved it now and the bumper crowd rose in salute as he walked off the field, chanting ‘Halsey, Halsey’ well in to the night.

    Top stuff Dave! REally great reading and it's a top thread thatnks to all your efforts.

    Bit unhappy with another broken figner, if it's on the left hand it may have to be amputated soon to avoid further injury . But my OD performances have been solid and the team has been going extremely well! Keep it up Webbers and Dave!

    The next opponents were Surrey in the county championship. Surrey and Cricket Web had history from the National League 2 title race the previous year and the animosity had only increased during the close season as Mark Ramprakash had caught Mr Wright in bed with his wife. Sam Vimes also had an affair with Graham Thorpe’s wife but if the rumours are to be believed so has half of London. Surrey were leading the county championship with 3 wins from 3

    So it was with Grim determination that CW travelled to the Oval, wholesale changes were made to the line-up, some enforced, some not. Out went Malone and Vimes on international duty, Cloete was injured, Chapman rested and Craze and Mr Wright were dropped. In came Brad Smith, Richards, Kearsley, Thomas, Hall and Weber.

    Surrey won the toss and batted and despite 2 early wickets from Hall, Hollioake and Ramprakash smashed centuries to propel Surrey to 408 and put them in control. Richards was the pick of the bowlers with 5-95

    In reply the CW openers both notched half centuries but neither went on and no-one lese passed 50, CW out for a disappointing 246 and asked to follow on.

    Once again the openers got a good start but this time Brad Smith went on and scored his maiden FC ton, then he turned it into a double ton, with assistance from Weber who missed out on his own ton by just 1 and Bluefox who scored an unbeaten 56. CW declared at lunch on day 4 , 452-4 - setting Surrey 291 to win.

    The win was out of Surrey’s hands but the batsmen didn’t play like it Reckless shots gifted Thomas 2 wickets and CW smelt blood, the in form Halsey tore in to the batting and ravaged the line-up, helped by Richards he took 6-66 and Surrey were out in the penultimate over of the match for 236, a great win.

    This was your first match of the season as you were previously out with a back injury. As a result of this score you were selected for the Surrey CC match.
