London Elite CC
10 years ago a bunch of 16 year olds were brought together by a common interest they shared: the great game of cricket. These boys slept, breathed, ate and drank the sport. They all played for various different teams including schools, street cricket and Eton Manor but came together under the banner of "Kashmir" and “Asians CC”. As time went on this group expanded to the developing players in their early teens; Mubashar and Sikander. It was already evident a formidable team was forming. The team enjoyed good success in their first season and were promoted to the premier league. They held the most fearsome pace battery in the league led by Muhsin Darr. However, the following season saw everyone go to university and the numbers were harder to build up. The addition of an international starlet, Ammar Aziz, failed to stop the arrest. On a dark day in summer 2004 the team dissolved. Everyone went their own ways and it seemed what had the potential to become a group of league killers had parted ways forever. For years there was talk of getting back into cricket. The passion was there but something was stopping the dream from becoming reality. During then and now there have been some moments of magic when the team have got together. Sikander Butt rescued the team from the jaws of defeat with a stunning bowling performance. The opposition were home and dry needing only 10 runs in 5 overs with 5 wickets in hand. But Sikander had other plans taking a stunning 4 wickets in an over to bring home the victory. On a separate almost equally hopeless situation Ammar Aziz pulled off the performance of his life; a stellar display which drew comparisons with the great Wasim Akram and bought home the win. There was also a somewhat shambolic T20 campaign. The talents of the team took them to the quarters but a lack of discipline cost them a place in finals day. All this only left everyone gunning for more but no one was ready to stand up and bring everyone together until Mubashar and Sikander Butt decided it had been long enough. These two masterful cricketers whose presence alone will boost any playing X1 to a winning one set out to round the troops. They started with the easy recruits of Asif, Omair, Fahim and Zak and this slowly expanded to the likes of Toheed, Ahmed and Nabeel. They talked the one bowler who at his best has run through even the best batting line ups with the new ball, Muhsin Darr, to come back. He has progressively gotten better and is now ready to form a formidable partnership with Nabeel for the opening spells. Even at this point something was not right. Something felt like it was missing. But then entered the most talented bowler this bunch has seen; a bowler who can make the ball do things others dream of; the left arm sensation Ammar Aziz; to complete an embarrassingly rich pace battery that will drive the team home. 10 years ago they were boys. Some at college, some at school and some abroad. Now they have come back together to realise a dream that was always spoken of but never achieved. Too many times they have been nearly there; but this time something feels different; there is a new discipline that’s not been seen before. And after the last team meeting the team are behind their leader Zak! Winter training is done. The money has been paid. The squad has been decided. The previews have been written. The kits have been distributed. Now all that's left to do is...play!
