Paraguayan Elbows Cricket Club
2007's Big Fixture
well, only fixture, was a re-run of the 1998 trip to Downe
in a 40-over game, Downe batted first by "mutual consent", i.e. some Elbows were still in the pub, and scored a sporty 200, Bob Deller starring with 3 wickets. In reply, a spirited 40 from Deacon and an undefeated 49 by skipper Moir Sr (denied a 50 when guest Martin Watts from Leigh was unfortunately run out on the last ball going for that second run) weren't enough to make up for two DISASTEROUS run-outs early in the innings and some rustiness on the part of the likes of Ahmed, Kalifa and Philbrook all making their first appearances since the 2006 tour.
