Carpmaels

26th Jun 2019 - Alexandra Palace
Won by 94 runs - NRR = 4.7


The game against Carpmaels is circled early on as a highlight in the fixture list - nobody knows what type of opposition we'll face - or even how many will turn up. As it turns out - there were 21 players involved, which is potentially a record for this fixture.

Due to late running trains, CIPA were put into bat - Jon Bailey and Nick King being selected to start proceedings. A wet morning meant a slower than usual pitch and outfield with runs being hard to come by. However, Mr Extras put in a sterling performance in keeping the run rate up. Nick King retired when the score was over 80 (which is possibly a retire at 25 record) bringing in Mark Dean who was in no mood for hanging about. Jon retired shortly afterwards, and Theo Carter followed him back to the clubhouse after having the misfortune of facing two over head no-balls before a well pitched delivery flattened his stumps. Tom Fraser surprisingly managed to adapt his game to suit the conditions by only playing 50% of balls as late cuts, the rest being carved into the leg side. A very imposing target of 166 was set.

Former CIPA star Roger Lush opened the batting for Carpmaels - and together with partner Alistair worryingly exceeded the run rate for the first few overs - including George Pidgeon's first delivery sailing over cow corner for 6. Thanks to a flurry of excellent catching, Carpmaels were losing wickets at regular intervals and the required rate sky rocketed. George Pidgeon managing to snaffle 5 wickets off just 18 deliveries - including a sharp catch and stumping by Tom Fraser behind the stumps.

Special mention goes to Rob Jackson for channeling his inner youth before heading off to Glastonbury and bounding in off the longest run up in the team. Two quite regulation catches were dropped in his two overs, so his already very impressive 2019 figures could have been even better.

After letting two Carpmaels batsmen back in (one SA fielder managed to pull his hamstring 3 overs into the match), they limped to 71 all out - with 6 batsmen failing to trouble the scorer. Roger optimistically summarized after the match that they were 'in a rebuilding phase at the moment' - we'll have to wait for the 2020 fixture to see if he was right.
