Result: Investec Asset Management won by 5 runs

Match report - photo gallery 

After a tense 1 wicket victory for Investec in the corresponding fixture in 2015, LCP returned to a sunny Shepherd’s Bush on 6th July to try to claim the bragging rights for 2016.

Investec elected to bat first and first wicket of Dave Hearn fell to an athletic catch from Lewis Gascoigne off Mistry’s bowling. Opener Stephen Small was joined by debutant Varun Laijawalla and the scoring rate climbed despite tidy bowling by Andrew Tainton and Manoj Patel. Small retired after some lusty blows only to bring another debutant Nigel Jacobs to the crease for what was the most elegant of Investec’s partnerships. Jacobs soon retired after a swift 27 which brought Procter in. With forearms like Popeye (in size and decoration) Procter hit some quick boundaries before being bowled off his legs by the pick of LCP’s bowlers Harry Green. Following in Procter’s footsteps, housewives favourite Thys Louw didn’t hang around with 6 boundaries and retired on 28. The last few overs saw the scoring rate continue with the last wicket partnership of Huntingdon and Doyle taking the 20 over total to an impressive 166 for 3.

LCP’s reply was solid and steady but the opening batsmen struggled to keep up with the 8-an-over asking rate. Procter couldn’t believe his luck when Jacob Stevens was given out lbw but some fine batting from Andrew Tainton and William Blair kept LCP in touch before some accurate bowling by Small was rewarded with impressive statistics of 3 for 15. Wickets were falling regularly with Huntingdon and Jacobs rearranging the timbers and it looked like the game was all but over. But Captain Farrell had other ideas and an impressive batting display supported by Eoin Morgan look-alike Thomas Donahoe kept the match alive. Harry Green returned to the fray having earlier retired and started finding the boundaries with consummate ease. Needing 11 off two balls to win and 10 to draw Green smote Jacobs to the mid-wicket boundary falling just a few feet short of a maximum six runs which was needed to keep the tie alive. Getting a single off the last ball meant Investec were winners by just 5 runs.

So like last year the contest went to the wire with the relieved Investec team narrow winners again.
