The Napa Valley Cricket Club (NVCC) kicks off its 2019 – and eight – season this coming Saturday, April 13 at the Napa Valley Expo in downtown Napa. The match will be an intra-club match – City v County – pitting members of the club who live in the City of Napa against those who reside in the County.
NVCC’s Tim Irwin produced a textbook display of fast bowling to set the groundwork for what turned out to be a narrow, grinding victory for the local team against the Sri Lanka Socials in Calistoga recently. Supported by an all-round solid bowling and fielding display, Irwin’s five wickets for just 12 runs off his seven overs kept Sri Lanka to a modest total of 132. That being said a batting collapse necessitated a rear-guard action with the bat by NVCC captain Bernie Peacock and Phil Bourke with an undefeated ninth wicket partnership of 29 to finally get NVCC across the line later in the day.
