Drummond Trinity 5 v Livingston Cricket Club Third XI on Sat 14 May 2022 at 14:00
Livingston Cricket Club Won by 2 wickets

Match report On a gloriously sunny Saturday afternoon, we ventured to picturesque Newfield to take on the undefeated Drummond Trinity. Suresh set the tone early, his 5 over spell conceded just 2 runs, however their openers gradually established a decent foundation. It was Cammy who broke the partnership and gained 3 wickets during a quality spell, though with plenty of wickets still in hand, it looked like we could still be chasing a formidable total. Enter some tactical genius from the skipper, Mark handing the wicket keeping gloves to Suresh and bringing himself on to dismiss their troublesome number 3. However the key move was the introduction of Andrew into the attack. Not only did he gain his first ever wicket, he took 4 in total, all of them ducks as the innings imploded spectacularly and ended abruptly with more than 5 overs still available. Mention should also be made of the determined team fielding effort including brilliant out field catches by Srikar and Cammy in particular.

The top three of Cam, Arsh and Matthew saw off the new ball with Cam settling into the anchor role as Zaki arrived at the crease and blazed boundaries at the other end. This set the scene for Mukhtar to unfurl some vintage strokes. After Cam was finally dismissed, Mukhtar continued to hold the innings together, easing us toward the target with the help of Srikar and DV. However at 8 down and with 34 runs still needed, the game was slipping away. Enter Cammy who launched an audacious attack on the bowling, completely changing the complexion of the match yet again. Suddenly it was the fielding team feeling the pressure as overthrows were earned and yet more deliveries were smashed over mid wicket. The winning runs with 10 balls to spare sparked wild celebrations. Our first win of the season coming in such a tight and hard fought encounter will be remembered for quite some time.
