Nepotists CC v Nevill Holt CC - Isis Trophy Final

Nepotists CC v Nevill Holt CC - Isis Trophy Final

If Carl uses 32 cherries to get 8 runs you know the pitch is not working for the batsmen. In the 13th over, the Nepos were in deep stickiness at 3-40. Cue, famous Nepotist collapse.

Nepotists CC v Post Modernists CC - Isis Trophy Semi Final

Law changes are not high on the study list between Sunday afternoon friendlies so it did surprise that as recently as last week, law 21.7 (give or take a month) changed from two bounces being legal to only one bounce before it reaches the bat or popping crease.

Nepotists CC v Little Missenden Misfits CC

Lukey Sparrow For Nepotists Cricket Club And David Tossell For Little Missenden Cricket Club, Shake Hands Before The Coin Toss For Their Match On August 12, 2018
The ball however was not too conducive to clean hitting or even snicking! The pitch simply did not want to let the ball go. As fast and as bouncy as you would like to bowl, most batsmen were through their shots early, thus many boundaries were only scored from full tosses or when the batsman chose to have a cuppa waiting for the ball to arrive!

Nepotists CC v Shepherd's Bush CC

The Parched Earth Of Shepherd's Bush Cricket Club
He had batsmen hitting boundaries off the last ball of the over and then keeping strike for the next. He had batsmen taking singles off the last ball of the over and then losing strike. One batsman even scored a 9; that’s a big hit!! Why is '9' even a scoring option?? He had bowlers doing 5 consecutive overs for God’s sake!

Nepotists CC v Teddington CC

Nepotists CC v Teddington CC
I can’t help but feel this match was simply a waste of everyone’s time. Teddington players that did turn up wish they didn’t and the Nepo’s played in a very positive ‘let’s get this over with’ style without actually saying it. The day came and went in a lethargic blink, which reminds of Steve Werren (AUS) telling me that we are Teddington’s only Sunday fixture, the match played out of long-standing courtesy.

Nepotists CC v Crouch End CC

Looking Down Hill, Down The Pitch, Toward The Willows Overhanging The Sightscreen Of Crouch End Cricket Club
Though we suggested it was the end of the over, the umpires and scorers simply lost count, but counting the balls is not our job and Jamie brought the hosts to 5-135 with the extra cherry

I don’t know what time the last Nepotist left to scale walls or scamper through hedges to escape Royal Security this year, but by all reports we are still good for 2019!

Nepotists CC v Shepperton CC

Correct me if I am wrong but when a bowler believes the ball would have gone on to hit the stumps had the batsman’s pads not been in the way, it is his right to appeal. Yes? I certainly did not think the fat bastard hit the ball.

Nepotists CC v North Enfield CC
Invited to maximise his contribution in his only game this season James Culley opened the bowling with myself and together we rolled through 16 overs outstanding overs; certainly the best both of us have bowled this season.

Nepotists CC v Chingford CC

Nepotists CC v Chingford CC
For 20 years I’ve listened to my brother’s wife use their daughters’ ‘cold’ for their not visiting my mother; I never known children to be so regularly ill that didn’t appear on a Sunday night current affairs programme or midday charity hand-out advertisement. So, using an ill-child to justify your decision not to play does not warm me like a good rub of Vicks.

Nepotists CC v Putney CC

Nepotists CC v Putney CC

Losing the toss and being asked to bowl, we got off to a flier on a pitch that offered three variants. Slow and low, slow and even lower, slow and out, all of which played in the bowlers’ favour if bowled on the stumps.
