KGB XXXII (Season 50)

To take 20 wickets in a single tournament is a feat not to be taken lightly. It had only ever been achieved three times previously. Messrs Duck, Hoeffaker and Gilbert take a bow (21, 21, 23 respectively). So for two players to join such esteemed and elite company this season was a sight to behold.

Havit’s Falco and Wegi’s Hitchcock (22 and 21 wickets respectively) making up the famous five. Yet neither Falcao nor Hitchcock saw their names in lights at the KGB awards dinner when it came to picking up even their own team’s player of the tournament.

In any other year their achievements would have been hailed as god-like. Ok, they still are, but only godly to a normal universe. Why? Because we saw two batting performances the like of which we’ll surely never see again. Gods of the multiverse then are Wray and Venkat.

Only one man had passed 600 runs in a tournament in the previous 16 seasons. In fact 600 had only been passed on 5 previous occasions in the whole 22 previous editions of KGB’s existing format (and never surpassed in the previous format). Those immense tallies were accrued by Geel (608 in KGB XXV), Huijser (672 in KGB XV), Scott-Reed (690 in KGB XIII), Bosnar (609 in KGB XII) and O’Brien (706 in KGBX).

So to have witnessed 764 by Wray and 752 by Venkat this year on bowler-friendly, green decks is quite frankly inexplicable. What makes Wray’s achievement in particular even more remarkable is the fact he amassed that total with just two centuries to his name. Thrice he was dismissed in the late 90s and twice he was not out in the late 90s. Venkat, meanwhile amassed 4 centuries in the one tournament to match the achievement by Huijser in KGB XV, only bettered by Scott-Reeds five tons two seasons prior to that.

An individual record-setting KGB the like of which we’ll be blessed from above to ever witness again. Saints Wray, Venkat, Falcao and Hitchcock we salute you.

KGB XXX (Season 48)

BOWL WINNERKing Havit & Wecester Gipsindies Hosts: King Whamo
Runners Up –Havit Man of the Series
3rd PlaceKing WhamoCallum Billson looked set to take this prize going in to the final as Havit’s player of the series, but was controversially dropped for the main even as Havit had signed Wiegand just in time. 66 runs in each innings of the final plus 6 dismissals justified the manager’s decision. It makes the decision here particularly difficult however. The only thing to choose between Durani, Aniani, Falcao (all 12 wickets each), Teasdale (386 runs) and Keererweer (351 runs) is that having lost both round robin matches to Wegi, it was Zargar Durani‘s five wicket haul in the first innings of the final that gave Havit the early advantage in the game, ultimately securing them a draw and the sharing of the trophy.

KGB XXIV (Season 42)

A tournament that will live long in the memory, especially for the success starved players and supporters of King Havit. They finally recorded their first KGB victory after years of hope and expectation had been dashed. Wham captain Wayde Mckagen, struck the 100,000th run in KGB history, off the bowling of the KGB’s 5th most successful bowler, Saiful Khan.

A KGB that saw all 4 teams in a competitive state, as the batsmen dominated. Gicharu in his debut festival amassed 504 runs, the first man to pass 500 runs since both Cullip & Talbot did it in KGB XVII, the first Havit player to do it since Roger Scott-reed in XV. his name will be forever in the history books. It truly was the Gicharu bowl, as he also added 13 dismissals behind the stumps. 12 centuries were hit, the most impressive being Burhenne’s 132* in the final. Although ultimately in vane, it did make the final more compulsive viewing than it otherwise would have been.

In the bowling stakes, Khan was the main man with 11 wickets to his name, whilst Bayley was the only bowler to make it on to the honours board with an exquisite 5-19 in the final against Whamo. Indika made it 8 bowls in a row in the top 5 wicket takers adding 9 more to his tally and closing the gap on his great rival GGJ to 10 wickets. GGJ himself, now just 10 behind the great Duck!

The most successful team in KGB history, Gloucester Gipsies had won the tournament on each of the three previous occasions and were hosts this year – a year which had seen them win all 3 league trophies including the First Class English Premier League. Indeed they were odds on with the bookies to make it a clean sweep and win the KGB to put the cherry on the icing of the cake of a perfect season! However, a surprise 2-run defeat in the BT20 round to their West Indian franchise proved decisive as they failed to make inroads with their absence of their international players in the OD round. It meant that the heavily backed favourites failed to even make the final and their franchise, Wecester Gipsindies took the crown:

3rd PlaceGloucester GipsiesPerhaps not everyone’s first choice, but KGBXIII showed the true character of Ciaran Chick. Ridiculed for his captaincy in KGBXII, many thought he would never produce at the highest level. However, he amassed an exceptional 14 wickets, including an incredible 5 for against Wham. Islam and Kibisu would have been equally deserving of the award as the trio dominated the wicket tacking charts. Great team effort from Wegi.

FC Whamo Man of the Series
FinalWecester Gipsindies beat King Whamo by 39 runsScores of 45 and 55 in the final weren’t quite enough to see Whamo to the trophy, but Julian Earle‘s scores were indicative of his consistency throughout this tournament. 347 runs at an average of 41 at the top of the order, Earle’s contributions spread confidence throughout his team, allowing them to go as far as they did. Indeed, in the 3 of the 4 of his 8 innings that the scored fewer than 30 runs, Whamo went on to lose. Every time he scored over 30 they won, bar the final.
  
 
OD Gipsies Man of the Series
Match 1King Whamo beat Gloucester Gipsies by 43 runsA disappointing KGB for the Gips. Signs of their undoubted brilliance throughout the tournament, but the depth wasn’t there to compete. Fraser Orme consistently produced with the bat though with three 50’s and a ton, averaging over 70 in the limited overs matches. Special mention too, to Mohammad who was superb in the ODers, but didn’t see enough action with the bat in the BT20 matches.

Match 5King Whamo beat King Havit by 10 wickets279 runs at 69.8 were an impressive return for a team who finished with 6 defeats from 6. If any of Bradley Geel‘s teammates had made half as significant contributions then their team may have seen better fortunes. Sadly he was the only positive in yet another dismal performance from the only side to never have won this competition.

3rd PlaceKing HavitKeith Gilbert – 23 wickets for the festival is a record in its current format. Only 2 of the greats have passed 20 wickets previously, Hoefakker and Duck, so that is testament to his achievment here. The only bowler to get on the honours board this year and took wickets against each opponent in all formats. Remarkable.

FinalGloucester Gipsies beat King Whamo by an innings and 176 runsScoring two centuries and finishing the tournament’s top scorer you can’t look beyond Sujith Weerasiri for Whamo’s man of the series. 362 runs at an average of 72.4 was a great effort. He was the only member of Whamo’s top order to put up some resistance in the grand final as well.

3rd PlaceWecester GipsindiesGreg Grewcock – What can you say about this man that hasn’t already been said? Not a lot. He’s got everything and was once again the key man for the Gips as they claimed the most saught after prize in Battrick. Another 18 wickets, coming in all forms of the game. He took wickets in every match and both innings in the final. Always a threat, as he became the only the 3rd member of the 100 club. Truly remarkable.

FC Whamo Man of the Series
FinalGloucester Gipsies beat King Whamo by an innings and 59 runsWhamo had a very strong tournament, winning every single group game, before losing in the final to the Gips who they had beaten in both other formats. On both of those occasions it was the figures of Amith Kulatunga which stood out. In the final Whamo only got to bowl once, losing by an innings, but that didn’t stop ‘Kula’ being the star, recording the 5th best bowling performance of Bowl history with 7-84.
  
 
OD Wegi Man of the Series
Match 1King Whamo beat Gloucester Gipsies by 49 runsBau Tori – His move away from Wegi saw a 10 year absence from the KGB. KGBX saw him amass exactly 100 runs. This time out, he struck 333, with two centuries coming in the OD matches. He was always seen as one for the future of this great competition, and it would appear, the future is finally here!

Only one person made it past 50 and that was Lediwa Taries with his 82* from 80 balls in the final game.

Runners UpKing WhamoGipsies Man of the Series
3rd PlaceKing HavitGreg Grewcock – The bowling attack of the Gipsies was always a huge threat and batsmen could never relax particularly when either Grewcock or Hardingham had the ball in hand. Hardingham would often do the hard work removing the top order batsmen, but Grewcock always took his opportunities. His effort v Whamo in the OD match was the the stand out performance of the festival.

FinalGloucester Gipsies beat King Whamo by 9 wicketsNot a single Whamo match went by without Visvadinu Indika taking at least one wicket. His five wicket haul in the first innings of the final really set the game up for an exciting finish too. Weerasiri will feel hard done by having been the top scoring batsman of the tournament, but for consistency and doing it in the big moments, Indi was Whamo’s main man.
  
 
OD Havit Man of the Series
Match 1Gloucester Gipsies beat Wecester Gipsindies by 10 wicketsHe only got to bat four times, but with an average of 68 in a team that lost 5 of its 6 games, and becoming only the third man to pass 3000 KGB runs, Johny Leenheer was the man to watch for the hosts this year.

It was in the OD section that Whamo really began to turn heads in the tournament and his scores of 93 and 103 in 2 of the 3 games lead the way there. He then continued that form in the FC final with a score of 57 in the first innings (only losing out due to a mix up in the middle) and a superb 91 not out to lead Whamo to their first outright title for 5 years.

With Grady Hooper set to leave the club after the tournament he bowed out with another gong to his name. 363 runs got his team to the final and Hooper must have been wishing Darren Duck hadn’t left a few weeks earlier or the result could have been different. Talk is that both players will be back after a season of rejuvination for Whamo. Let’s hope so. The bowl isn’t the same without the two greatest.

King Gips Bowl XV (Season 33)

A memorable festival of cricket that saw a shared bowl for the first time first time in the current format. The 2 founding clubs, showing they are still to be reckoned with. The Gips so close to achieving what looked impossible this time last season, but coming up just short of victory in the end. Havit once again failing to live up to their billing as favourites and in desperate need of change. Wegi showed flashes of their brilliance as well as having the player of the tournament in their ranks as Huijser smashed 672 runs. His 4 inscriptions on the honours board contributed to a total of 18 for this years festival.

This festival saw Darren Duck become the first bowler to take 100 King Gip wickets while Grady Hooper became the first batsman to pass 3000 King Gip runs.

This year also saw the most runs in KGB history with 6339 as well as the most maximums with 140. Its the first time that we have seen over 100 since the last time that the festival was played at the Gardens, leading to suggestions that the Gips should lengthen the boundaries?

3rd PlaceWecester GipsindiesVince Ohanlon – his bowling deserved so much more than the 17 wickets he managed. He was the main man in the final, with his 9 wickets almost leading the Gipsies to a famous victory. His strike and economy rates in the final really set him apart from any other bowler in the festival and I’m sure the narrow miss on claiming the trophy will inspire him to push harder in future to claim his first winners medal.

FinalMatch DrawnSmall was impressive in the opening games, but as the tournament went on so the leading run scorer in King Gip history grew in stature. His 128 in the OD game v Wegi ensured Whamo would get to the final in place of their opponents and then his two hundreds in the final were the key to Whamo sharing the spoils. Grady Hooper, without doubt took the award with 534 runs.

OD Wegi Man of the Series
Match 1King Havit beat Gloucester Gipsies by 29 runsFreddie Huijser – his 672 runs came at an extraordinary average, with opposition bowlers managing to dismiss him just 3 times in 8 innings. His 4 centuries in his debut KGB have etched his name amongst the elite in festival history and fans from all 4 teams will be looking to him with heightened expectations for years to come. He also took 10 dismissals in the tournament (7 catches & 3 stumpings).

Match 5King Whamo beat Gloucester Gipsies by 8 wicketsIt’s not easy to pick a winner in a team that only won one game throughout the tournament. Lenheer top scored, but it’s Garfield Buchanen who takes this prize. His 5 wickets were key in the one game Havit won and he was the only player to put up any fight in the Spoon final – the only man to pass 50 in both innings, including 72* in the first. The future is bright for this young man and Havit will hope he can spur on future generations to help the team realise their massive potential in this competition.

King Gips Bowl XIV (Season 32)

BOWL WINNERKing Whamo Hosts: King Whamo
Runners UpWecester GipsindiesWhamo Man of the Series
3rd PlaceKing HavitIt’s hard to look beyond Grady Hooper for the winner’s player of the tournament. He may have scored fewer runs than Bosnar, but arguably his came at more important times. Added to that the club legend had to deputise with the ball throughout the tournament. Having never done it before his contribution as 5th bowler could well have been the difference between making the final or not. Taking 5 wickets in the shorter formats was 5 beyond what was expected and he managed to keep his run-rate at a decent level. Nobody would have predicted that a team going in to a King Gip Bowl with only 4 bowlers could win it. Hoops proved the world wrong.

FC Wegi Man of the Series
FinalKing Whamo beat Wecester Gipsindies by 133 runsLehlohonolo – his performances in the OD matches make him stand out from the rest. The century against Havit was pivotal in Wegi qualifying for the final. He managed 3 fifties and 2 tons on his way to 496 KGB runs this year, agonisingly short of joining the 500 club.

OD Havit Man of the Series
Match 1Wecester Gipsindies beat King Whamo by 7 wicketsPerhaps distracted by the mid-Bowl qualifier that they had to navigate, Havit really underperformed as favourites of this tournament. As such there was no real stand out individual over the course of the tournament. Leading run scorers and wicket takers got the bulk of their runs against the still-weakened Gipsies. Therefore this year’s award goes to Garfield Buchanen -at just 22 years of age he recorded the best ever figures in festival history. His economic bowling was also the reason that Havit won their all important second match against Wegi. The fact it went downhill from there can’t be pinned on this youngster with the world at his feet.

FC Whamo Man of the Series
FinalWecester Gipsindies beat King Whamo by 8 wicketsWhamo looked like they might get a hattrick of Bowls this year but it all came undone in the final. It’s very hard to choose a player of the tournament with Hooper and Leary being evenly matched with the bat, and Duck and Palliyaguruge equally so with the ball. But for his overall performance across the 3 matches against the eventual champions coupled with making it to the top of the all time run scorer list, this award goes to Grady Hooper.

To get 2 is outstanding. To get 5 (FIVE) in a maximum 8 innings is nothing short of monumental. The day that record gets beaten I’ll eat my hat.

Runners UpKing HavitWhamo Man of the Series
3rd PlaceGloucester Gipsies & Wecester GispindiesA really close one this between the tournament’s greatest ever bowler, Daren Duck, and the cavalier Tony Bosnar. Duck’s mighty haul of 21 wickets would normally take the prize but with many of them coming against tail enders while Bos’ big innings came when it mattered most, it is the latter who scoops the prize for his 609 runs.
4th Place
 
FC Havit Man of the Series
FinalKing Whamo beat King Havit by 134 runsAn extremely tough decision this one – such was Havit’s team ethic in this year’s Bowl that if I could I’d choose the ‘team’ with all players pulling their weight in the first ever appearance in the Grand Final for a franchise team. However, I’m going to plump for Brad Jongikhaya. He scored fewer runs than Jacob Lawrence and at a slightly lower average but he had the disadvantage of not being able to bat in either match against the weakend Gips. Added to that he scored the runs when it counted – steering the team to victories – as well as being one of only two (along with Cassim Mohammed) to put up a fight in the Grand Final.
