ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL WEEK IN THE DISABILITY PREMIER LEAGUE

After the Disability Premier League (DPL) T20 competition came to an end last week, there were two 40 over matches played on Sunday as the Disability cricket season draws to a close.

Middlesex representation...

Black Cats - Mohammad Farooq, Moazzam Rashid, Zac Spears, Umesh Valjee, and Assistant Coach Michael Wilson

Hawks - Elliot Brown, George Greenway, Ben Mason, Jake Oakes, Kester Sainsbury

Tridents - Jaidev Charan, Martin Henderson, Sam Kumar

Pirates - James Nordin

Player watch - 11 September – Loughborough

Tridents beat Pirates by 94 runs

The Tridents faced the Pirates for their first DPL D40 fixture, having finished second and third respectively in the T20 competition. The Middlesex representation in the Tridents side saw Zak Spears, Sam Kumar, and Jaidev Charan facing up against their usual team-mate James Nordin.

The Tridents won the toss and elected to field, with Kumar and Charan both taking wickets. Kumar bowled seven overs, taking two wickets for 40 runs, whilst Charan took one wicket for 30 in his five overs. Nordin received a peach of a delivery as he was the last man out, with Tridents scoring 239 all out from just under 40 overs.

Spears opened the batting in reply and managed to score 7 before being caught off Nordin’s bowling. Kumar scored 23 in the middle order, and Charan hit a quick-fire ten, but they were unable to get close to their required target – finishing on 145 all out. Nordin bowled six overs, going for 20 runs and claiming the wicket of his Middlesex teammate.

Black Cats beat Hawks by 119 runs

T20 Champions the Black Cats faced the Hawks in the other match on Sunday. Umesh Valjee, Moazzam Rashid, Martin Henderson and Mohammed Farooq were all involved for the Black Cats, where Middlesex Cricket Head Coach Michael Wilson is also involved in the coaching set up. George Greenway, Elliot Brown and Ben Mason were playing for the Hawks side.

The Black Cats won the toss and chose to bat first, with Valjee opening the innings. He scored a respectable 45, before he was caught by Brown behind the stumps. Rashid, Henderson and Farooq were all deployed in the Black Cats lower order, and came in looking for quick runs with the overs running out. Farooq finished unbeaten on 9, which included a six from the penultimate ball of the innings as they finished on 217/9. Mason took a wicket in his five overs, and Brown was involved in the run out of Henderson.

Greenway impressed with 23 runs from ten balls at the start of the Hawks innings, hitting three fours and a six, before he was trapped LBW by Middlesex teammate Farooq. Further down the order, Brown scored 12 and Mason was left not out on 0 when the innings came to an end. Farooq impressed with the ball, taking three wickets for 30 runs in his seven overs – including narrowly missing out on a hat-trick, whilst Rashid kept it tight by only conceding six runs from his three overs before the Hawks were all out for 98.
