16 Oct 2017 : Uxbridge Indoor Team Success

On Sunday Uxbridge CC played in the Middlesex Indoor 6 aside Cricket competition - the county knockout stage of the ECB Indoor National Club Championship.  Uxbridge took 8 players to the competition: Leo Fernandes, Dhiraj Khullar, Aman Quadri, Jonathan Tall, Michael Stafford, Patrick Harper, Harpreet Sangha and Will Spicer (Team Manager). 

Uxbridge's first game saw them up against a talented Mavericks side. Uxbridge got off to a good start knowing Mavericks were the team to beat in the competition. Despite losing Patrick Harper first ball of the innings Aman Quadri and Dhiraj Khullar rebuilt the innings however wickets fell regularly bringing Harpreet Sangha and Leo Fernandes to the crease who continued the good start hitting into the gaps and crucially running well between the wickets. Uxbridge finished with maximum batting bonus points after posting 123-4.  Mavericks were bowled out for 91 following some tight bowling from the young Uxbridge attack. 

In the second game Uxbridge tore through the Richmond batsman bowling them out for 28 in 6.3 overs. Jonathan Tall was the pick of the bowlers finishing with 1 wicket off 1.3 overs for 3 runs bowling a nagging angle across the right hander.  Uxbridge were possibly a little relaxed with their chase and gave away early wickets crumbling to 14-3. Sangha (3 not out) and Fernandes (13 not out) again rebuilt and eventually knocked the runs off after 5.3 overs. 

In the final game vs Queen Mary University Uxbridge knew they had to win to top the group and go through with QMU having already won 1 game and lost 1. Quadri and Khullar batted superbly and looked comfortable with Uxbridge racing along in the first 3 overs. Quadri reached 25 and retired bringing Harper to the crease who played some beautiful strokes including a flat on drive for 6 eventually retiring for 25.  Quadri and Harper returned to continue their innings together after Uxbridge lost a couple of wickets.  Uxbridge eventually finished on 120 to again secure maximum batting points.  QMU were never in the game thanks to some quality bowling from Uxbridge's talented bowling attack and were dismissed for 60 runs giving Uxbridge 1st place. 

A solid performance from a young talented Uxbridge side will now see us returning to Finchley to participate in the Middlesex area final vs the 4 other group stage winners - competing for a place in the ECB National Indoor Competition. 


11 Sep 2017 : U17s bring a successful 2017 Junior season to a close
U17s bring a successful 2017 Junior season to a close Congratulations to Uxbridge CC U17s who, with a 9 wicket win at Barnes CC on Sunday 10th Sep 2017, secured the inaugural Middlesex U17 Cup Plate for 2017. Skipper Rohit Khullar starred with an unbeaten 50 and 4 economical overs as Barnes U17s were bowled out for 123 in the 20th over. Rohit was ably supported with the ball by Matthew Jones, who celebrated securing his place in the England Lions PD squad with a hat full of wickets. The U17 team comprised many U15s and three of the all-conquering UCC U13s who had two weeks ago secured the Middlesex U13 League Championship - this all bodes well for the future. The U13s lead the way with Uxbridge's fourth Junior County title in 40 years of records - an outstanding achievement, but all the other age groups are packed with talented cricketers who with their hard work and the hard work of their coaches and parents have progressed tremendously in 2017. Junior Presentation Evening will be 7.30pn on 3rd of November 2017 at the club.

14 May 2017 : Weather denies Uxbridge CC in National Knockout *UPDATE: UCC THROUGH TO ROUND 3*

Update: Hampstead CC have conceeded the replay and Uxbridge CC will face Ealing CC (Away) in the 3rd round of the Royal London National Cup

This Sunday Uxbridge CC faced Premier League side Hampstead in the Royal London National Knockout (45 overs) away from home. Uxbridge won the toss and put Hampstead in to bat. Hampstead got off to a steady start with 40 runs on the board before Sangha took the first wicket. However thanks to some tight bowling from Ahmed and Tall Hampstead were soon 67-3. Dawson got the innings back on track playing some nice reverse sweets however he was eventually dismissed for 77 by Quadri. Hampstead appeared to be on the back foot at 216-7 however some powerful hitting late on saw them reach 276-8 after 45 overs.  Uxbridge went into tea feeling like they had let the opposition get a few too many however the pitch was clearly one that favoured the batsmen. 

Uxbridge got off to a great start with openers Harper and Sharma cashing in early during the powerplay. Uxbridge were looking comfortable at 50 without loss in the 8th over. Unfortunately Sharma went for one big shot too many and was bowled by Peterson for 25. This brought Quadri to the crease who rotated the strike with Harper who had now accumulated a comfortable 40 not out. Quadri (12) was caught off Roberts bringing number 4 Fernandes to the crease. Fernandes (10 not out) and Harper batted patiently reaching 117 before Harper (57) gloved one through to the keeper leaving Uxbridge 3 wickets down. Unfortunately Harper's dismissal proved to be the final ball of the game as the heavens opened with 16.5 overs having been bowled.

Uxbridge were left feeling extremely frustrated as had just 3.1 more overs been bowled they would have won the game due to their superior run rate.  The game is to be rescheduled with the winner earning a place in the 3rd round of the ECB Royal London National Cup.
