The CW Grade cricket tournaments will commence tonight, so that the first round of matches will not coincide with the Manuel Ramprakash Trophy final - as such, the opening round of matches will see all CW players turn out. The games will then carry on for 10 days, coinciding with the charity series - which is intended, as grade matches were designed for the players who doesn't get a game. The teams will compete for the Nibblets Grade Trophy in three-day cricket and the AA Grade Cup in one-day cricket, with the finals to be held on 13th and 14th of November - although they may be moved if they coincide with grade matches, as we wish everyone to be involved in the closing stages.

Both tournaments will have a structure with an initial group stage of three groups (one group of four and two of three) where the top three plus the best second-placed team (on points per game average, then on net run rate), will qualify for the semi-final knock-outs. The points system is attached, along with the schedule for the games.

Three-Day Groups:

Group A:

Gofftown Tigers
Stedingham Jets
Pickford Panthers
Davistow Darters

Group B:

Campsfield Braves
Garven Island Sharks
Edfield Seahawks

Group C:

Twybridge Titans
Nixonstown Foxes
Greater Robbham Grooters

One-day groups:

Group A:

Campsfield Braves
Davistow Darters
Twybridge Titans
Garven Island Sharks

Group B:

Edfield Seahawks
Pickford Panthers
Stedingham Jets

Group C:

Greater Robbham de Grooters
Gofftown Tigers
Nixontown Foxes

I presume that the Grade Cup semis and Final aren't actually FC, just 3D?

Could the Grade Cup be called the ClarkeWatch Sponsered 1st Grade Trophy?

1) Good spot. The CWBCC official responsible has been fired.

2) No. Nibblets paid more. :p

What First Class? I can't see no First Class cricket in this thread.

Opening round - Grade cricket


Tigers v Jets

[b]Gofftown Tigers		Stedingham Jets[/b]
RGEWS Cribb		+T Mamesh		
JA Courtis		JE Stedman
*BJ Goff		CR Butler
+S Jasotharan		RF Prabhakar Rao
RJ Malone		LRC Chaudhari
JB Malthus-Howell	*RJ Hingston
D Deeps			CL Kalmar
Jamaluddin Hossain	SA Bennett
D Muhaffy		T Loganathan
GM Thomas		M Bala
NJ Masterman		AA Cameron
Jasotharan was the hero in Gofftown, as the hosts rode off with the victory in the opening match of the grade season. The spin attack of the Stedingham team was blunted by Jasotharan, who smacked a ton in 91 balls - although he edged to first slip on 97, but there was no one there and Mamesh could only get his fingertips to it. Sean Bennett was entrusted with plenty of bowling on a flat pitch, and took three wickets, but the Tigers still made their way to 395. Chasing the total, Mamesh and Stedman smacked 22 in the first three overs, before Stedman slogged a ball down Jamaluddin's throat at mid on, and the second day belonged to the Tigers. Jamaluddin and Thomas shared out wickets as the Jets lost three men in fourteen minutes, and despite a rearguard 65 from captain Rich Hingston, the Jets could only muster 226. Following on, Mamesh and Stedman added 64 for the first wicket, but Mamesh was caught for 44 just before stumps on day 2. From then on, the Jets struggled, and Muhaffy and Jamaluddin finished them off for 174 amid the rain breaks. Courtis knocked off two fours in the second over, as the Tigers won easily.

Tigers 395 & 8-0 bt
Jets 226 & 174 (f/o) by ten wickets
Points: Tigers 26, Jets 1

Panthers v Darters

[b]Pickford Panthers	Davistow Darters[/b]
PE Young		Dawlat Ameer
T Gould			RA Langley
MA Hepworth		+M Gaukroger
MW de Silva		DA Kearsley
SE Fuller		CA Naik
CB Benjamin		DJ Comley
DB Jacob		NS Hoy
LE ****erill		VH Pradeep
+Adil Dewan		*DJ Watt
TC Halsey		DM Kennett
*NS Pickup		NL Patrick
Both teams' brittle batting line-up was exploited at the Pickford minefield, as the match between the Panthers and the Darters was over inside six hours. In the end, Peter Young was the hero as he negotiated a cracked pitch with unpredictable bounce to steer his team to the target. However, the match was action-packed in the six sessions of play. The first session saw the Darters race to 26 for 1 in 7 overs, before Fuller and de Silva dug in to have the Darters 55 for 4 at the end of their spell. Pickup then brought himself in, and with ****erill he inspired a collapse, as Kearsley was caught at second slip by Young and the Darters crashed to 80 for 8 at lunch, and an eventual total of 97. The Darters came back, as Dave Watt got two wickets with the first five balls of the match, but 15 extras and a gritty 31 from Sean Fuller gave the Panthers a 28-run first innings lead. Once again, the Darters threw away a good position, with Halsey taking three wickets as they crashed from 93 for 4 to a total of 121. The Panthers needed 94 to win, and were helped by the umpire and dropped catches. Young was probably lbw on 3, but the umpire gave him the benefit of the doubt, and he went on to make 31 not out, guiding the Panthers to a six-wicket win.

Darters 97 & 121 lost to
Panthers 125 & 94-4 by six wickets
Points: Panthers 25, Darters 3


Braves v Sharks

[b]Campsfield Braves	Garven Island Sharks[/b]
AJ Blackman		SG Fitzsimmons
+DY Dubb-Lynch		+DA Lezama
RC Langdon		AP Cloete
DR Hasabnis		NBTK Hanbury
*LA Camps		*AJ Garven
KR Kode			Shaukat Shahzad
J Toogood		BC Cunningham
MW Wilson		T Evans
EL Heath		DP Richards
AAA Collins		XPA Rose
JJ Jadeja		SA Stuart
Despite seven wickets each from CW internationals Liam Camps and Xavier Rose, neither side could force a victory at Campsfield, but the Sharks rode off with the points after a dominant performance from their middle order. Alex Blackman played a composed 82 to top-score, but the Braves failed to convert their good position at 108 for 1 as Tim Evans and Dave Richards stifled the middle order and Xavier Rose then took three wickets, helped by the second new ball in a second spell worth 6-1-23-3. The Sharks lost both openers cheaply, as the Braves' new-ball pairing of Camps and Wilson got good effect, but Andrew Cloete picked out the gaps for an exquisite 88. He was eventually caught off Camps, who finished off the Sharks to end with seven for 91, but Garven and Shaukhat Shahzad had hit half-centuries and the Sharks had gained a first-innings lead of 101. More rain on day three and slow batting from Camps and Kode meant that the match petered out to a draw.

Braves 257 & 308 drew with
Sharks 358 & 35-1
Points: Braves 5, Sharks 14


Titans v Foxes

Twybridge Titans	Nixontown Foxes
AS Das			JJ Josy
LR Joslin		JJ Prestwidge
HWR Gunn		I Markus
+A Crampton		*+JR Gray
RJ Twyman		E Moon
SJ Burke		MJC Currie
*TV Weber		DES Sanjeet
JB Brown		C Taylor
NB Hancock		S Bhatia
RB Cotterill		Riaz Wajid
JP McNamara		D Hoitink
In another low-scoring match, Twybridge Titans took on the clouds at their home ground to bat home the victory thanks to a match-best score from Colts batsman Arunava Das. The Foxes never got the hang of batting on the true pitch at Twybridge, and but for some lower order resistance, the result could have been much worse. First, new-ball bowler Cotterill dug out four catches in a spell reading 9-3-15-4. Then Nick Hancock continued the treatment, as the Foxes crashed from 55 for 5 at lunch to 79 for 9. However, a determined 30 from David Hoitink, not to mention Jamee Gray's composed (until he slogged one down the throat of Twyman at square leg) 45 brought the total up to 125. Corey Taylor immediately found the outside edge with the new ball for the Foxes, but captain and keeper Jamee Gray floored the sitter - and Das, the reprieved batsman, went on to make 41 before dragging an inswinger from Bhatia onto his stumps. He had put on 62 with Joslin, however, and the stage was set. A two-hour spell from Matt Currie yielded four wickets for 36, but the Titans still made 147, with Stephen Burke making the second-highest score with 27 not out. Batting again, the Foxes made 36 for the first wicket, and at 59 for 2 at stumps on day one they were pretty well positioned. They collapsed again, though, with Brown taking three wickets and inciting a crash to 103 for 8. However, Sanjeet put on 71 with Bhatia for the ninth wicket, and the Titans were set a tricky 154 to win. Das played an excellent innings, however, waiting for the sun to come out before he took on the bowlers. He was eventually lbw to Taylor for 50, but by that time the Titans were 121 for 3 and easing home. Alex Crampton also made 32 not out as the Titans made their way to 154 for 3 and a seven-wicket win.

Foxes 125 & 175 lost to
Titans 147 & 154-3 by seven wickets
Points: Titans 23, Foxes 3

I dunno. This was pretty exciting:

D.P. Richards          ct Dubb-Lynch        b Camps                2    9  0 0
Unplayable really. It's a miracle you were skilled enough to touch it at all.

I didn't, in fact i'd actually played a trescothickesque leave and the ball was perhaps six inches away from the bat, tbh i thought it was a borderline wide, but i suppose you have to accept these kind of decisions in Campsfield, there were a couple of nailed on LBW's that got turned down aswell, i guess the white stick factory is still doing a roaring trade round there.



First Class Debutant
Jeez, my blocking skills came uip again. Must have played and missed millions of times!

And I have bowling figures like Brett Lee.....got smashed by the Tigers!

Surely it was flat pitch when the Tigers were batting.....and a dangerous one when the Jets were batting...... :p


Cricketer Of The Year
Good game Titans! its an honour to be your captain!
Hancock,Brown,Cotterill bowled brilliant!
and awesome batting from Das, and he had good support from Gunn Campton and Twyman.
nice little knock from Burke too.
