Students fail to score enough

first_img20/20 Cricket Oxford UCCE 137-8 Oxfordshire 138-5 Thirteen runs in the last over of this TwentyTwenty encounter saw Oxfordshire home after two and a half hours of drama, mixed with some razzmatazz and entertainment, in the Parks. It led to heartbreak for Paul McMahon’s Oxford UCCE side, who had watched the game seemingly slip away during a highly impressive display of disciplined hitting from Ian Crosby before battling back in front of a huge crowd. The UCCE side won the toss and chose to bat, and McMahon immediately set high standards when he declared, “It looks a decent wicket, so we’re looking to put pressure on Oxfordshire and hopefully leave them an exciting chase.” Though the side fell short of the total he had in mind – “probably about 160” – his words were otherwise prophetic. The minor counties side opened with two quick wickets. Luke Parker’s middle and leg stumps were disrupted at the end of the first over and Steve Hawinkels was caught at slip from his first ball. However, the run rate soon began moving steadily upwards, despite the further loss of Amit Suman for five, during a pair of fruitful partnerships. Firstly Mula Richards and Will Howard opened up, finding the boundary five times before Howard was run-out in a mix-up, and then Richards and Simon Chorlton took the score to 63-4 before Keith Arnold trapped Richards leg-before for 29. With five wickets down after eight overs, Oxford consolidated, as the Oxfordshire bowlers increasingly found bounce from a length and a tight line, reducing Chorlton and McMahon’s run-scoring opportunities. McMahon was well caught in the covers by Ben Thompson with the score on 100, and 13 runs later a simpler take for the same fielder removed Chorlton after an innings of 35. The students were grateful for a few late swings, particularly Josh Knappett’s pull for six and cover drive for four in the last over, and finished on 137-8. Suman opened the bowling for the UCCE with a promising spell, with the game’s only maiden followed by the removal of Adam Cook for a solitary boundary, caught behind by Knappett. However, McMahon and wristspinner Steve Moreton were helpless to prevent a superb salvo by Crosby, who reached 50 after just 38 balls, with five fours and three sixes. The Oxfordshire opener, his footwork outstanding, ruthlessly exploited the slightest abberation in line or length – one Moreton over was hit for two maximums over mid-on, one of which cleared the pavilion. The UCCE were understandably delighted when Hawinkels, from the Norham Gardens end, enticed him in to one shot too many and Moreton held the catch at deep backward square leg. Oxfordshire found the runs drying up from then on as Parker, Hawinkels and the returning McMahon all found a length similar to that of the opposing bowlers at the same stage in their innings. Though singles kept the scoreboard ticking, boundaries were becoming increasingly rare and a succession of attempted reverse sweeps seemed to show the batsmen’s frustration. Callum Taylor therefore came to the crease with the score at 116-5 after a pin-point throw had run out Chris Knightley with two and a half overs remaining. A superb over from Suman, conceding just three singles and a leg bye, left Thompson and Taylor needing a momentous effort to win the game. However, after a Taylor single, one Thompson shot was enough to reverse roles entirely. Cross-batting the ball over mid-on, he watched it sail over the rope and leave just six to win from four balls. The UCCE took the contest to the very last ball, but Thompson struck it down the ground and a slight misfield was enough to allow the scampering Taylor back for a second run, ending a thrilling encounter in fitting fashion. McMahon, though “obviously disappointed,” said that the game “could have gone either way,” and predicted, “I’m sure that The Parks hasn’t see the last of 20/20 cricket.”ARCHIVE: 6th week TT 2004last_img read more
