OWs lose narrowly to Normandy in shortened game

RYMAN SURREY CHAMPIONSHIP DIVISION ONE
7 SEPTEMBER 2013
OLD WHITGIFTIANS v NORMANDY
Normandy 181-6 inns closed (41 overs), OW 176-9 (41 overs)
Normandy won by 5 runs
Old Whits and Normandy brought the curtain down on the league season with a thrilling finale before a large crowd at Croham Road  on Saturday. Going into the game the visitors still had a chance of promotion to the Premier Division but this depended on both victory for them in South Croydon and relying on Valley End losing their last game at home to Beddington.
The game was reduced to 41 overs a side following overnight and morning rain but thankfully from the point the match started at 1.15pm there were no further weather interruptions. Normandy’s Ian Prowse and 16 year old Chris Jones compiled a steady opening stand of 89 in 29 overs before Jones fell to a good catch by Murti Hussain off the bowling of Brendan Taylor for 29. Taylor followed up by bowling Normandy skipper Howard Grice leg stump for a first ball duck as good spells by both Taylor (2-37) and Dan Kenton (2-30) kept the run rate in check. Kenton was rewarded for a disciplined spell of excellent line and length with the wickets of Prowse (48) and Huw Jones (7) as Normandy slumped to 114-4 in the 33rd. With Murti Hussain (0-32) bowling his usual miserly spell scoring was not easy but Nathan Sowter (44) and Andrew Hemmingway (25) played well to hoist the score to 181 as the visitors made 67 from the last 8.2 overs. Skipper Luke Fisher(1-40) was the other successful OW bowler.
OW openers David Burton and Murti Hussain both batted sensibly and saw off the new ball in compiling  a stand of 70 before Hussain was bowled by the leg spin of Sowter for 17 in the 21st over. Brendan Taylor, playing his last innings for OW before returning to Perth, was promoted to number 3 but when both Taylor (6) and Burton (38) fell to Venkateswaran  soon after OW had it all to do. Matt Stiddard and Mo Raza both looked good in taking the score on to 121 when Raza was bowled by Peter Wellings for 16 and when the assured Stiddard (29) holed out to cow corner off the off spin of Jones Normandy were looking favourites with the hosts 127-5 needing 55 in less than 7 overs. Fisher hit a quickfire 10 in just 6 balls to keep the pot boiling for OW but it was great knock from Adam Clarke who made 35 in 27 balls that almost took the hosts to victory. Clarke had hit one enormous six but a miscue attempting the winning hit from the 5th ball of the last over saw a run out with the crowd disappointed when Clarke was adjudged out rather than his partner Amar Patel as the batsmen hadn’t crossed. Patel was unable to hit the last ball for the winning runs as a great finish ended in Normandy’s favour. Alas for them Valley End also won and join Leatherhead in the Premier Division next season.
