LINDOW Cricket Club are reflecting on a remarkable weekend.

Wins were achieved by all the men’s teams on Saturday, the club’s under 15s reached the cup final on Sunday morning and then in the afternoon the club was broadcast live to the nation.

With England in the Cricket World Cup Final, Sky Sports News ran live footage from Lindow’s clubhouse showing the reaction to the game from a community cricket club.

For the drama of the epic last-ball finish a split screen live broadcast was shown from Trafalgar Square and Lindow CC!

On top of that, members of the club gave live interviews throughout the day.

The scenes in the clubhouse as England won the game will be remembered forever, (see the video HERE).

Such was the reaction to the win the video has now been watched by more than 50,000 people on the club’s Twitter feed!

This was the finale to a perfect weekend after the club’s first XI won for the ninth time this season to remain top of the table.

They scored 216-8 at Christleton thanks to half-centuries from Atiq Uz-Zaman (53), Alex Matthews (56) and Tim Affleck (63).

The home side were then dismissed for 130 with Sully Raja the star of the show, taking 6-28, well supported by Rana Rauf (2-25) and Affleck (2-30).

Lindow seconds moved into the promotion places with a six-wicket win at home to Ashton on Mersey.

The visitors were bowled out for 121, with three wickets each for Ben Hamilton-Ryan (3-23) and Mark Farrell (3-40) and two for Matthew Ramsden (2-40).

Jamie Peel (27) led the Lindow response, which was completed by Henry James (21 not out) and Dave Kendrick (20 not out).

Lindow thirds made history on Saturday by recording their highest ever score of 326-6.

Batting first at Mossley, captain Hassan Mahmood led from the front with his first club century (117), putting on 151 with Olly James, who, aged only 13, recorded his first half-century (57) in senior cricket.

Ateeb Mehmood then came in and hit the ball to all parts, scoring 76 off just 46 balls.

Mossley had no answer to the onslaught and finished 79 all out with Paul Wilson taking 5-9.

Lindow under 15s booked their place in the cup final with a win at Stretford.

The home side were restricted to 85-9 off their 20 overs with Will Espley (3-12) and Allaster Livingston (2-13) the pick of the bowlers.

This was chased down in the 17th over thanks to a captain’s innings from Henry James, who finished 47 not out. They will face Bowdon in Sunday’s cup final.

A special few days for the club and the community, which will hopefully inspire even more people to start, or re-start, playing cricket.
