Elmhurst Staff vs Elmhurst Parents

Tuesday evening witnessed one of the highlights of the sporting summer.  In fact a cricket match of this nature threatened to put even the Ashes into the shade.

The Parents XI decided to bat first and an opening partnership between Mr Patel (Nyal 3B) and Mr Gopinathan (Purav 4C) of 22 in just 4 overs threatened an imposing total.  However Mr Harrington made the first break through and there followed a regular fall of wickets. The highlight came with the introduction of Miss Dawson into the attack,  an over of bounce, flight and pace proved too much for Mr Shah (Krishan 5H) and the ball that finally got him out had “Warne” like qualities! Sadly for the parents they subsided to 127 all out.

The Staff XI then batted, an opening partnership of 17 between Mr Beck and Mr Harrington was followed up by solid scores from Mr Clark (27), Clement Li Raphael (16) and Mr Kelly (25).  Although the highlight remained the high quality 1 scored by Mrs Hodge!  Apart from Mr Shah “fluking” a wicket with a straight ball the Staff XI moved serenely to reach their target in the 16th over.

We had a fantastic evening and the game was a lot of fun.  Thank you to all the parents who played and those who came to watch. Special thanks to Mr Raphael and Clemmie who got roped into the game at the last minute! Thanks also to Palmer for umpiring and Raul who did most of the scoring.  

I hope that we will see this game as an annual feature of the Summer Term.
