2nd XI Div 4 KCL
Completing our first season under our new (old name) of Blackheath Wanderers C C we found ourselves finishing 4th in the division. With three of our previous top batsmen absent,this was not the worst result for us.
Kosala Bandara was our top batsman with 327 runs and atop score of 82. Big hitting Shak Ahmed chipped in with 274 with his best being 73. Mention must be made of the improvement that Ajay Budania showed with the bat. With two fifties he was 3rd in our list of run makers with 237 runs.
New player Jigar Desai was the bowler with the top wicket haul He took 20 at an average of 16.85. Stalwarts’ Benn Higgs and Terry Edwards tied on 14 wickets each. Terry qualified for the Kent over 60’s squad this year having played for the over 50’s for many seasons. Hard to believe that he is now 60. The Grecian 2000 seems to work for him!
Fielding was modest as shown in the statistics. However, in place of our more regular keeper Furqan Iqbal, Milind Dhanak took the gloves and took 10 catches and made 2 stumpings. He also skippered the side on a few occasions in the unusual absence of Chris Todd who was taken up with his bouncy castle business. Not sure if mate’s rates are offered but it’s worth asking!
