Damazan vs Eymet      14th April 2019.  

First match of the season is rather something special for all the teams. Unlubricated frozen bones get the first taste of  cricket. Driven by passion of mystic sport of cricket, bats are drawn out of their respective scabbards. EymetCC, one of the best in South West of France, many time champions in league, Siddals cup and 20/20 tournaments took on comparatively mediocre Damazan CC. DCC Skipper Gaganelected to bat with his openersñMobie& Lofty Ahmed. Mobie struck 2 nice boundaries but was out while hooking a Numan’s quick delivery. But rest of the batting line of DCC batted very well. Lofty Ahmed 23 in 26, TafieHussein 37 in 51, Dalim 44 in 33 with 5 six’s. Goofie 35 in 42, Asher 23 in 13 and Gagan a flashing 20 in 13 balls. Great batting performance for the first match. However the star batsmen Mobie, Shahid and Shazeibof DCC failed to click yet they managed to collect a total of 209 for 9 a good total indeed as DCC had regular 5 bowlers apart from Gofie n Swaran.

However Eymet’sAdnanwho had earlier scored a dashing fifty against Catusand a brilliantParneet Singh opened the innings. Adnanmiscued a quick delivery from Zainand was out for 6 while Parneet displayed his brilliance and took the score to 82. Gagan brought himself with Asher. Gagan removed Ahmed Jewel 24 and Asher bowled Parneetfor 48. That was in fact the end of the Eymet innings except youngNumanwho hit Swaran for 4 six’s taking 30 runs in 2 overs. Eymet took their score to 155 for 9 but were at no time any threat to accurate bowling of Gagan, Zain, Asher and Shazeib. But the great Eymet can not be understimatedwith this friendly game result as their senior players were not available for this game. Thanks Eymet for your hospitality and lovely game of Cricket.
