It gives me a pleasure and pride to write this 2017 season report where the Club has grown in leaps and bounds in all sectors of the game and Club dynamics. Another sensational year of brilliant performances both in batting, bowling and fielding by INDCAN players in all the three teams fielded this season. My personal congratulations to Team 1 on being winners of the Division 3 League and Shield. Congratulations Ankit for being awarded the Best Bowler in Division 3.
Team 1 led by Ankit played stellar cricket throughout this season. This by no means is a small achievement and is the result of complete team effort where everyone in the team contributed to one or two wins this season. John was the top scorer for the team with 226 runs and was supported by eight players with aggregate scores over 130 for the season. While John scored two magnificent fifties, the batting unit was generally under less pressure as we were chasing low totals as set up by well-disciplined bowling and fielding. The batting unit had an opportunity to score big in the shield final and they delivered with the highest team total of 284. The team could work a little harder on the fielding end but there was some individual magic displayed by players like Raj who caught a sensational one-hand catch in the first match against Abbotsford to set up a crucial victory by 1 run, and a laser-like accurate throw from Abhinav from the boundary right on top of the stumps for a run out against the same team which changed the course of the game. Players like Raj, Harsimran, and Gary supported Ankit with over 100 runs and over 15 wicket for the season. Can I say Division 1 here we come....
