Coventry & District Midweek League 2012

 

This season followed a similar pattern to the last few years, we peaked early winning four of our first five games comfortably and promotion looked a dead cert. However, as with recent seasons the two SNCL cups took priority with no consideration to what used to be our strongest form of cricket. Also, very early team selections committed players way in advance, who would potentially have played on the Wednesday, thus further diluting the pool. This is a real shame as we keep getting stuck in the bottom division, with the knowledge that our strongest XI is a match for any team in either division. The season did finish on a high point, but an overall record of won 5, lost 5 with 4 no results is not a success (not with some of our opposition).

This has to be accepted as the norm, as short term players will always be attracted by potential silverware, with a need to balance their academic commitments and noone can really blame them. Aside to this there were some high points, but as Hari is third in the batting averages you might guess it is all with the bowlers. Dani was the main reason for our stella start to the season and was definitely 20/20 player of the season. Hari and Nick also pitched in well and Mitul was a revelation, had he got one more wicket he would have definitely won the overall bowling prize.
