Over the last month there has been a little less cricket played in Chiang Mai, due to international tournaments, and/or Christmas and New Year hangovers. On the 12th December, despite the best efforts of the rain, a match was played at the Prem Center. The only other fixture in the month was on January 9th, at Gymkhana. With 12 players, they managed a double-innings, double sixes match.

Wani’s side batted first and posted 78, with the captain making 40. Maroof’s team notched up a decent 96, giving them an 18 run lead at the half-way stage. Wani’s boys got 101 in their second 10-overs, leaving Maroof needing 84 to win. A valiant effort ensued, but eventually the challengers ended up 10 runs short of their target.

Mark was scrappy on the front nine throwing away shots with missed putts from short distances but he got it together on the back nine and steamed home in 39, putting an exclamation point on the round by sinking a birdies putt on the 18th from 14 feet.

Weather permitting softball is on every Sunday at the Payap fields. Pick-up games begin at 1:30 p.m. or as soon as they have 16 willing participants. They add to the teams as people arrive up to a maximum of 11 a side. They play on their own field by the entrance to Payap University without competition from any other sports teams (although they do have some competition from some scruffy looking cows).

Anyone think they can take on Chiang Mai’s expat team the Farangutans? Even if you can get 6 or 7 players together the Farangutans would like to play you on the new Astroturf pitches. Get in touch with them.
