17 June 2018 - The OECC in the Cricketer Cup

The OE Cricket Club faced Oundle Rovers in the first round of the Cricketer Cup on Sunday 17 June. In 2017 the OECC reached the final of the competition, but this year sadly their progress was halted early. Club chairman Nigel Wheeler writes:

A 31-run loss was a fair result as Oundle Rovers were 31 runs better than the OE with the bat, the ball and in the field. Chasing a total in this competition is not the OEs way of playing. Post a good score, bowl tight and give nothing away in the field. Not to be.

Oundle batted sensibly with their county player Smith scoring a sound 85. The OEs dropped a few catches and did not dominate in the field. 220 was a reasonable score for the situation.

Jacob Smith and Giles Robinson set off briskly, 38 off 5 overs, Brad Evans struck some hearty blows (23) and a mature partnership between senior men Max Finzel (44) and captain Angus Stewart (66) moved the score from 83 for 4 to 160. With Ben Twine, Angus steered the OEs to 185 - 35 to win, five wickets in hand, 50 balls left to bowl. Victory looked a possibility.

A run out turned the game and with Angus brilliantly caught a few balls later, the tail fell apart, 31 runs light. Thank you to players and spectators. A nuisance to drop out so early in the competition but the talented nucleus of this side will be back to fight another day!
