Palm Beach Titans VS Palm Bay Cricket Club

 

Two days before Thanksgiving, our team received an invitation from Palm Bay Cricket Club to participate in one of their exhibition games. Having been mostly inactive due to coronavirus, the team wanted to get out of that period and restart their tour schedule. This meant hosting exhibition games to get some practice in for their preparation for the start of Central Florida’s cricket season in the first quarter of 2021. Palm Bay Cricket club is a well respected championship team from Central Florida, so we wanted to take the opportunity to help another team get back into the flow of the game.

 

Though it was on short notice and most of our players already had plans for the Thanksgiving weekend, we were able to pull an 11 together and make the 2-3 hrs drive down to Palm Bay FL. The series we were challenged in is known as the Harwood series. It’s in honor of Wesley Harewood, who as many of you may know is the Palm Beach Titans team manager and has been a part of our team since the very beginning. You can check out his bio here. Last year was the first time we played against Palm Bay Cricket Club and they did beat us in a relatively close contest. This year, we returned on short notice with a team that was more representative of titans 2 and very eager to try to bring the trophy back home with them. We must commend our players for their bowling abilities during this match. They restricted Palm Bay to 122 runs in 30 overs. However, the tables turned due to us being exposed in our batting. We unfortunately did not have many of our top order batsmen with us on this tour and this resulted in our lowest total in recent history, with the team being dismissed for only 58 runs. Most of the team is still in disbelief this happened. Either way, it’s a great win for Palm Bay and they were able to get some practice in before their season starts while we showed our desire to continue participating in the Harewood series and to try to bring the trophy back home with us for Wesley. We were able to succeed in two of these things. This isn’t the end though, Palm Bay will be visiting us in the new year and we’ll give them a good taste of what a full strength Titans team can be like at that time. Rest assured, the Harewood series trophy will not be leaving South Florida when they come to visit next.
