TMCC played away at a picturesque Northwood CC. TMCC batted first in a timed match. Joshua Chaim opened the batting and scored an impressive 35 before being caught behind. Dushyant Maradia (our very own Romanian International) scored a very quick 33 before holing out. Tom Braithwaite made his debut for the Sunday XI. Clearly the one on one sessions with Steve Selwood paid dividends as Tom scored 31. Eventually were bowled out for 185.
Despite having a very pacy open pair (Nauman and Smit) we were unable to make a quick breakthrough. Eventually Eklavya made the breakthrough with his off spinners. A couple of run outs got Northwood 3 down. Dushyant bowled the keeper and we though we had a sniff. Eklavya got another wicket with Clive taking a catch behind. However Northwood reached their required total with an over and half to spare.
Whilst it was disappointing to lose it was nice to have 3 more players make their Sunday debut.
