USA

We deserve to be in Division Four - Cush

Sahil Dutta

Lennox Cush

Jersey played well to start with and their captain Ryan Driver made good inroads, but I don’t think they ever really threatened us, despite their potent bowling.

Carl played very well today, he went in at a time when things weren’t going well and I think him and Aditya were really good today and credit goes to both of them for the runs they scored.

I think the earlier bowlers made it easier for me, Daniram and Darlington in particular, they set the tone and pushed the Jersey side back so that I could take the wickets. When I came out they needed to score at six runs an over which made it easier for me – I felt mentally I was more ready to take the wickets.

The University ground has by far the best outfield of all three grounds so it’s been good to play there and if we make it to the final that’s where we’ll be playing and in front of Nepal’s national TV station which has been broadcasting all the matches live from that ground.

Tomorrow we face Singapore, which is a really important game for us because if we win it, it means we’re guaranteed a place in Division 4 this summer in Italy – which is somewhere I feel we rightfully deserve to be. Once we’ve completed tomorrow then we can focus on winning the finals and taking home the Division 5 title.

I am looking forward to a rest this evening so that I’m fully prepared for tomorrow – I might even go and get a massage to help me get a good night’s rest.

The game is going to be tough on Friday. Both the teams will give each other a tough fight. But Nepal will be favorites. Their setback, the batting is slowly coming into form and bowling never to mention the best in the tournamnet.Tomorows match will be low scoring match. And Nepal will win. The spinners will take all the ten wickets...

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Sahil Dutta
Assistant editor Sahil Dutta grew up supporting England during the 90s. Despite this, he still enjoys the game. His unrequited passions for Graeme Hick and, in latter years, Vikram Solanki gave him a stoicism that guided him through an Economics degree and a stint working at the European Parliament. He maintains the purest love for Tests and the whims of legspin bowling and still harbours hope that he could be the answer to England's long search for a mystery spinner. As it is, his most exciting cricketing experience was planning a trip to Australia for the 2006-07 Ashes with two utterly indifferent friends. Unfortunately his lung collapsed shortly before his planned departure and the pair were left to wander around from Test to Test, unprepared and clueless. Any comparisons with England are far too obvious to make. That cancelled holiday inspired an Ashes blog which led, via some tea-making at the Wisden Cricketer, to the ESPNcricinfo towers.
