Slip sliding away........Grey and gloomy evening......late start but 16 overs per side agreed by both captains to the gentle horror of the Legend of VPCCL, President Bert. Toss won by Steve McQUEEN Williams, TCCC batted first.....137 for 3 of the 16.

A good total considering the sheer vastness of pitch 3 and the length of the grass. Regents did very well with to restrict TCCC to this total after the speedy start given to TCCC by the KING, Duncan. Regents also fielded exceptionally well.

When the Regents batters took to the crease......they all seemed to be living charmed lives. TCCC REFUSED to take their chances (of which were a plenty). In the end wickets were taken but Andrew DEADLY Dickson & the KING, Duncan will be wondering whilst tucking into their bowl of porridge how they managed not to take a single wicket between them.

Was it a anti-kiwi conspiracy or just the DUKE of Kenneth Marshall (LAW) and Alkesh Solanki (LORD LUCAN) were having a shocker in the field akin to the present ARSENAL goalkeepers.

Butter fingers is a term flayed around indiscriminately at times but certainly apt in this instance. Bon Jovi were indeed very sharp when they suggested SLIPPERY WHEN WET. Alkesh Solanki (LORD LUCAN) did manage to take a catch off his own bowling and more peculiar that DUKE of Kenneth Marshall (LAW) managed to hold onto one off the aforementioned LORD LUCAN's bowling. Obviously only a coincidence dare I suggest.

To conclude the story, the DARK KNIGHT Maroof Ahmed took his maiden wicket, clean bowling Donellen. The sands of time are certainly not running low for this enigma, the DARK KNIGHT Maroof Ahmed.

Bravo to all - Regents, well played. And many thanks to the footballers who were willing to share their fitness training with us all during OUR game.

After all without their considerate input it was very unlikely any of the 16 cricketers would have wanted to play cricket at all. After all FOOTBALL (or soccer to the purists) is the national sport: spring, summer, autum and winter - so sod everyone else. Hallowed be thy name.
