A summary of past events and a calendar of upcoming games and tournaments.
Two friendly matches were played against the Colombo Cricket Club in Taoyuan on June 24, 2001.
A Brief Report.
We enjoyed playing with the Sri Lankans on Sunday. We lost both the matches quite narrowly. Our fielding was the
In the first match they made 106 all out in 21 overs. We made 89 in 20 overs. There was a batting
collapse and we lost four wickets in the first two overs. Although we recovered a bit it was not enough to win the match.
In the second match the Sri Lankans made 139 for 8 in 15 overs. They were lucky to get away with some wild hitting
thanks to our poor fielding. However, we made 126 for 5 in the stipulated 15 overs. Though we lost the match technically ,
I was very happy with the team's performance. We played the match with controlled aggresion. We are planning to invite those
guys over to Hsinchu shortly.
Saturday July 7. Seven-a-Side match in Ping Tung (Sugar Factory Baseball Ground).
18 Over match. Batters retired at 50 and could return at the fall of the last wicket. Last man could continue batting.
Any sub fielders allowed.
Game started around 1430 between Ping Tung and KaoHsiung. This game is reported on because
Kaohsiung was assisted in its efforts by a member of the Hsinchu side, Grant Dexter. Kaohsiung won the toss and batted first
accumulating exactly 100 for the loss of three(?). Dexter batted through scoring 45(?) and was run out off the last ball of
the innings attempting a suicidal single. Captain Rob scored 20-30 as well.
Ping Tung chased and were restricted
by some tight bowling from 'Sax' and Tom, but the target proved just too small and they easily overhauled it in the 13th over
with Andrew Carrick in punishing form.
Saturday and Sunday, July 21 and 22 there is a match between the Taipei Cricket Association and the KCCC who will again have
the services of one Grant Dexter.
