Caught out at Chobham
By Ian SIMPSON
Good temwork, but no result
With the tantalising smell of roast beef wafting across the Chobham ground (how are we expected to perform under such conditions ...?!) Chobham went into bat first and put in an impressive performance, with multiple boundaries, and only dropping four wickets in their innings. Wickets went to Ollie, Henry E and a couple of run outs. Sadly , we dropped around five catches which could have gleaned us a big advantage. A few wild throw-ins with poor backing up also allowed Chobham to make extra runs as Camberley struggled to field the ball at times. Things can only get better. Drinks and biccies later, (No roast beef on offer!) and we came in to bat, but sadly our batting was mediocre at best, dropping eight wickets , and only achieving a few boundaries, Harry, Henry E and Max managing fours. Too many dot balls and some missed chances for runs through confusion of the calls also led to run outs and an insufficiet run rate. Chobham also showed us a clean pair of hands, holding every catch presented to them, including two caught behind by their wicket keeper. Sadly we ended up nearly a hundred short of Chobham. More practice needed on catching, fielding, and batting!! - as my old cricket master used to say "Dropped Catches lose matches"
Better luck next time Camberley
