Double derby defeat [posted 14/07/18] 

WDCU_logo Shawholm lost out by seven wickets over in Crossmyloof today, Titwood the victors in the Reserve League derby.  Batting first Shawholm posted a perfectly respectable 205, with Dr Uzzi again top-scoring with 84.  The next highest individual score - aside Mr. EX Tra who was 1 short of a half century - was Hasan Malik, who scored 20 batting at three.  Titwood would, however, make light work of their run-chase, getting home inside 30 overs, Irfan with two of the three wickets to fall.

We've got the scorecard online, and updated stat's

 

Over at Shawholm, it was a broadly similar story, except the run-chase that saw the 'Loc slip to back-to-back league defeats, lasted until the 48th over.  Batting first, thanks to a second league hundred of the season from Coenie (107*), the 'Loc recovered from a slow start to post 216 for 7.  Coenie was given some support from Akshay (22) and Murtaza (21), however in reality his effort was the sole reason a 200+ score resulted.  Then in the second innings, when there were hopes of defending their score, the 'Loc immediately let the initiative go with loose bowling in the first ten overs that saw Clydesdale race to 51 for 1.  And though the run-rate then slowed pretty much steadily for the rest of the innings, the taking of wickets that might've caused alarm bells to start ringing in the Dark Side's camp didn't materialise.  And with Dhami (61*) anchoring the run-chase, there at the end, it was - in truth - a pretty uneventful and "regulation" chase, the 'Loc losing by five wickets in the final analysis.  The scorecard's online, as are match highlights and updated stat's.

 

Weekend games [posted 13/07/18]

This evening's junior action sees the Under 14s travel to New Cambusdoon to play Ayr.  Saturday then sees home-and-away matches against the Dark Side, Clydesdale travelling to play poloc and Titwood entertaining Shawholm.  Sunday's a rare blank day in the schedule, allowing players and groundstaff a well-earned break, and then the weekend fixtures conclude on Monday with a scheduled Under 16 match against the Ferguslie|Kelburne combined side.

 

Representative selections [posted 12/07/17]

Amaan Ramzan and Kess Sajjad were both in Scotland Under 17 action today, playing against Cumbria in a one-day match.  In The Netherlands meanwhile, Abtaha Maqsood will add to her Scotland Women's caps in the WWT20Q match against Bangladesh.  And in regional cricket action, Hassaan Mehmood, Samee Mehmood and Shahan Raja are all included in the Western Warriors Youth Select XI for today's match at Hamilton Crescent against XL Club Scotland, whilst Craig Young is included in the senior Western Warriors squad for Friday's T20 Blitz match at Forthill against the Caledonian Highlanders.
