Match Summary .. ACC Vs Panthers CC

Match Summary .. ACC Vs Panthers CC

Match was played on 18th of May 2019 at the home ground of Almhult Cricket Club in Enredya.

ACC won the toss and decided to bat first in an overcast weather condition. ACC changed the strategy and sent out two new openers in this Match , Rahul and Hizbullah. Both the openers approached with utmost care and avoided any risk. Score board was moving at a decent pace. Ball was swinging both ways , bowlers of Panthers CC were bowling a very tight line. Hizbullah miscued a shot over long on but it was a superb catch at mid on that led to the fall of first wicket in the sixth over with 28 runs on the board.

Shreeknath ( Wall of ACC) came at number three but he could not add to the score , he was bit unlucky to get bowled on the best ball of that innings.  Wickets kept falling at regular intervals on the one end , the other end was kept tight by Rahul, who top scored with 38 runs . He carried his bat till 20th over and got out in the last over helping his side to put 97 on board in 20 overs.

The score looked tiny but it proved to be massive challenge for the visiting team. They got off to a flier, adding 42 runs for the first wicket. ACC had to fight hard for the break through. As they in cricket , one wicket brings another and another and another .. within no time Panthers were reduced to 42 for 4 in 7.2 Overs.

Match was in balance at this stage and every run from here on was difficult to get , Panthers fought hard and crossed the line in the 17th over with last pair on crease. ACC has their moments but few missed changes towards the ends and repeated wides helped Panthers to emerge winners by just one wicket.

Congratulations to the winning team.

Commitment from ÄCC was very high, Batsmen needs to come good and some activism in the filed ( Bowling and Fielding) will be required to change the momentum in favor of ÄCC.

 

 

 

Captain’s View – Friendly Match Vs Vaxjo

Success is Sweet 🙂

Today ACC played second friendly match with Vaxjo CC at Enredya Cricket Ground , home ground of ACC.

Weather was at it’s best , ideal for a game of Cricket. Almhult Cricket Club won the toss and opted to bat First on a true wicket.

Almhult CC opened the innings with a new set of openers , Dinesh and Siddharth ( Senior ). They both started quite well but Siddharth lost his wicket to a full delivery , which he tried to wack on the onside but he Yorked himself and ball took the stumps out.

At one down , Shreekanth joined Dinesh and they both played some classy strokes once they got their eyes in. The second wicket fell at 88 runs in tenth over , when Dinesh got out on 26 runs .

Arfat , joined Shreekant in the middle but ACC lost Shreekant in the same over. Shreekant made a well compiled 49 runs , he missed his half century but I am sure he will make many of those in the upcoming season .

Arfat was then joined by all round performer , Hizbullah. After getting their eyes in , they stared to push the scoring. Hizbullah got out by virtue of a soft dismissal , when he returned a simple catch in the 16th over with scorecard reading at 119 runs.

Rahul came in Next and joined the set Batsman Arfat on the other end. Score board started to move quickly in the slog overs. Arfat played some lovely cover drives and pull shorts in his favourite area – Over Mid Wicket to complete his half century. Rahul too chipped in with a double digit score , with one clean hit over the ropes.

ACC made sure they don’t loose any further wickets and managed to put up an above par score of 170 as the target for Vaxjo CC

In reply , Vaxjo started pretty well again. Right hand and left hand combination is working very well for them. Even though ACC bowling attack was on the money all the time but they still managed to score runs at will and put up a decent opening stand of 56 runs in nearly 06 overs.

After the fall of first wicket , Vaxjo CC never looked settled and lost wickets at regular intervals. All the bowlers of ACC Bowled pretty well , be it Spin of Hasan Ali , Accurate Bowling by Qasim and Shreekanth or Swing bowling by Ankit. Abdulla bowled the last over and picked up two wickets.

A complete team effort ensured that ACC was home comfortably. The area that needs improvement is fielding. ACC gave some easy runs and dropped  05 chances given by batsmen.

With more training’s and match practice , I am sure this area will be sorted too.

Well Played Guys !!

Captain’s View: Friendly Match ÄCC Vs Växjö CC

Always a Nice Feeling !!

After hitting the nets on Friday , it was the first opportunity to have some match practice with our friendly neighbourhood team, Vaxjo Cricket Club.

Since , we have just started our season , our team was short of two players. This gap was successfully filed by two budding cricketers from Almhult Cricket Club´s Youth team. The two Young Starts are Ashutosh Samal and Siddhath Ganju. Well done Boys – Proud of You.

Toss was won by Vaxjo Cricket Club and without any hesitation they decided to bat first and put some runs on the board. They started well and compiled their innings with some good partnerships which helped them to put up an above par score of 157 in 20 overs. Hizbullah was the pick of the bowlers he was ably supported by Imran S, Ankit Shah and others. Area of improvement are identified and we hope to improve as start the formal league format starting in May.

In reply, ACC has a solid start with Rahul and Hizbullah putting yo 38 runs in 05 overs but a mis-judgement of a quick single resulted in a run-out of set batsman Hizbullah. After the fall of first wicket , wicket fell in bundles and the total on the board put by ACC was 70. Pick of bowler from Vaxjo was Waqas , who managed to get a fifer, Well Done Waqas.

Next practice session is planned for Wednesday and the expectation is to see maximum participation from the team members

Look forward to see you all on Wednesday for the next training Session !!

Fantastic start to the 2017 season!

Älmhult Cricket Club is excited to start the 2017 season! ÄCC played two matches with all members of ÄCC. The team has tremendous passion! Surprisingly the team looks quite match fit too. Batting and bowling both looked quite solid. Fielding is always questionable this early in the season. But all in all a great start!!

Älmhult kämpade men förlorade cricketfinal i Malmö

Älmhult fought hard but lost in the cricket finals in Malmö

Smålands posten covered the finals that Älmhult played vs Lund Cricket Club in Malmö. We fought real hard but unfortunately lost.

Älmhult International Cricket Club unfortunately couldn’t cross the final hurdle in the finals. Lund Cricket Club played a near perfect match of cricket. Congratulations to Lund Cricket Club.

Nevertheless ÄICC has had an amazing season of cricket with a lot of interesting ups and downs. We started off with 20-20 series and that didn’t go as planned. We lost almost all our matches. But we bonded as a team. Learnt each other as a team. Shared light and heavy moments together.

Come 40 overs series we were fresh and ready to go! We played exceptionally well as a team. And reached the finals. It’s a remarkable achievement for an inexperienced team with most playing their first season of hard ball cricket ever. We had some brilliant performances in the team in several matches. We should be extremely proud of ourselves and take a moment to pat ourselves on our shoulders.

ÄICC would like to thank and congratulate all it’s team members. Well done again!! And we hope for many more to sign up for the next season!

We look forward to an even more successful 2017. LCC beware!! 🙂

Cricketklubb – en gemenskap

Nya träningsplanen har dessutom gett resultat

Älmhult International Cricket Club bildades förra året. Men det är först i år som klubben har en plats att träna på. Resultatet: I år är de med och slåss om segern i Cricketallsvenskans division 1.

En solig septemberkväll samlas sju personer vid Enevallen och närmare bestämt på den nyinvigda cricketplanen. Solen är på väg att gå ner och färgar därför hela idrottsplatsen gulröd. Några av deltagarna jobbar för fullt med att sätta upp nätet så att de kan dra igång träningen. En bit längre bort hörs dunsar av fotbollen från EIF:s träning.

– Vi håller på att sätta upp nätet för att bollen inte ska sticka iväg, vilket gör att det blir lättare att hämta bollen och det blir på så sätt mer tid för träning, säger Vimal Palwankar.

Att det finns en cricketklubb i Älmhult är delvis möbeljättens förtjänst.

– Det är väldigt många av oss som har spelat tidigare i livet, i Indien, Bangladesh och i Pakistan. Och flera av oss har träffats på Ikea. Eftersom vi var några stycken så bestämde vi oss för att dra igång en klubb, säger Vimal.

Träning

Men det är först i år som de drygt 20 spelarna har kunnat träna inför matcherna eftersom att de inte har haft någon plats att vara på tidigare. En cricketbana kräver stor yta och det är en fördel om det inte finns bilar i närheten som kan råka träffas av en boll.

– Vi har spelat ganska bra i år, konstaterar Vimal, och syftar på att de spelar final i division 1 för södra Sverige i Malmö till helgen. Vinner de den matchen får de spela Sverigefinal. De spelar i ligan 40 overs.

– Det är väldigt olika hur man spelar, i 40-klassen spelar man mer säkert för att orka hela matchen. I 20-formatet är det mer action och man tar mer risker, berättar Vimal, och tillägger att det är match varje helg.

Det är hans första säsong i klubben och han ser det bara som trevligt, så att delta var självklart. Han har spelat själv sedan han var liten.

– Det är ett bra sätt att träffa folk och vi blir bra vänner. Det är vårt mål samtidigt som vi vill sprida kunskapen om cricket, att folk ska få upp ögonen för det. Man hittar en gemenskap, man blir en del av något. Det är inte alltid så lätt när man nyss har kommit hit från ett annat land. Särskilt viktigt är det med tanke på flyktingsituationen vi har också. Vissa av de personerna har spelat cricket tidigare och då finns det redan ett band, säger Vimal.

Men det är klart, är det tävling då vill de vinna.

Exkluderande

– Tävlingar är egentligen ganska exkluderande då bara de bästa får vara med. Så vill vi egentligen inte ha det, säger han.

I morgon, lördag, är det dag att spela final 1 i Malmö och Vimal ser att laget har en chans att vinna.

– Vi har mött dem innan och några av dem har tidigare spelat i Älmhult. Jag tror att vi kan ta dem, i alla fall om vi spelar som i semin, säger Vimal Palwankar.
