Chuck's 100* Demoralizes Miami CC.

Date 01/01/70

The skipper won the toss on a sunny morning, but had good reasons to invite last year's runners up Miami CC to bat first.  The tactical reasons were sound, but MCC's new openers looked very solid as they compiled runs with relative ease against Titans normally dominant bowlers.  As MCC finished on 201/6 off their 40 overs, and with rain delay having already dampened the pitch slightly...the game was on a razors edge as Titans openers started their approach to the crease.

Dalip coming off a spanking 70 last weekend, strode to the crease with his opening partner Chuck, who is by far the front runner for this season's MVP award.  A few lustful blows and a short time later Dalip departed, but the team was well set with a run rate of 7+ per over and 60 odd on the books already. Anil continued to look good with a well hit 30 before he was caught behind.  At 120/2 with lots of overs to go...it should have been a walk in the park, but Tiki's & Rakesh's run-outs and Alastair's & Darren's dismissals left Chuck observing the parade of batsman and the team about 40 short with 14 overs to go.  All he needed was someone to stay with him and he got that in Paul.  Chuck would proceed to quickly overhaul the target and reach 100* off the final boundary needed taking Titans to a 3-1 record and the best run rate in the league.

In the first four games of the season...Chuck has scored 107*, 55, 22* & 100*...making his average a whopping 284.  Go Chuck and go Titans!
