Sharks JCLT20 Runners Up

The Sharks were just on the wrong side of a very close result in the JCLT20 Grand Final. A very solid demolition of Falcons in the Semi put us in good stead but Paddy’s just clipped us in the Final with a ball to spare. Good effort Sharks! [Anton]

Sharks Advance to JCLT20 semis

A tidy performance saw us defeat the much fancied Tigers by 4 wkts. Tight bowling from Ash (2/23) and Doogs (2/11) scuttled the Tigers for 104. Ibby (28) and Takady (39) set up the final over for Muneeb (10*) to smack the winning runs over the rope on the 5th ball. Great job Sharkies. [Anton]

Sharks sweep into JCLT20 Quarters

A masterful half century from the skipper Takady saw the Sharks demolish the Rhinos and secure a spot in the JCLT20 Quarter finals where we’ll face the Tigers. Honorable mentions too for Atiq who hit a fluent 35 and Ibby who bagged another 3 wickets. [Anton]

Sharks back to winning ways

A bumpy season so far sees the Sharks finish July in some style with a comprehensive victory over arch rivals the Tokyo Wombats in JCL1. Doogs starred with the bat with an epic century. Well done all. [Anton]

2022 Season Starts!

Our season opened with a high scoring loss in the Japan Cup to Rising Stars. Tanmoy and Atiq dominated with the bat but a little bit of rust and a shedload of wides made the chase easier for the Stars. Many positives though including 5 new players on show. [Anton]

Great Training At Akai Farm Nets

No less than 15 Sharks of various vintages took advantage of the excellent facilities at Akai Farm to bat and bowl a few cobwebs away. Lots of quality on display; Freddy’s pace bowling, Hiro’s sharp batting, Anton’s splendid belly. Good prospects for the coming season. [Anton]

2022 JCL AGM held

Dave and Anton attended the 2022 JCL meeting today and the season is set to start on April 2nd/3rd (1st XIs) and 9th/10th (2nd XIs). There are a couple of new teams; Kawasaki and Titans and a few tweaks to the penalty rules to. Highlights coming soon. [Anton]

Sharks Awards Ceremony Held

20 odd Sharks assembled at KBs place (with the big windows all open of course) to celebrate a fantastic season. Big winners were Asanka and Ibby who picked a bagful of trophies each, and yours truly was made a Life Member! Great to see everyone again. [Anton]

Chiba Sharks are 2021 Champions

The Sharks 1st XI swept aside the Tokyo falcons on a tricky turf wicket at SICG to claim the 2021 JCL1 Championship. Batting first, Sharks found the going tough but not as tough as Falcons! Great win guys [Anton]
