Shearer Thurgate Cup stays with Sharks

May 20, 2023

Our strong start to the 2023 season continues with the 1st XI beating our ancient adverseries Wombats by 58 runs down at Fuji. It was a great, dogged, patient all round performance, worthy of the Shearer-Thurgate Cup which stays in our hands. Well played guys. [Anton]

2023 Japan Cup Sharks on Fire!

April 23, 2023

Takady’s T20ers made a great start to our 2023 Japan Cup campaign with a thumping win over Tsukuba Vikings. Runs from Takady (42), Doogs (44) and Tipu (21) were backed up by wickets across the attack for a superb team win by 71 runs. Good stuff! [Anton]

First points for the 2s!

April 18, 2023

Wild, wet and windy weather meant that both XIs matches were cancelled last Saturday. It’s a shame because we had two strong sides ready to go. Never mind, we’ll keep our powder dry for May. Next up is Japan Cup [Anton]

1st XI Flourish, 2s Flounder

April 18, 2023

The season opened with the 1st XI blasting through a middle order fightback to beat Rising Stars by a healthy 28 runs. No such luck for the 2s though. Facing KKR’s 1st XI, we never got going with the bat but took a few wickets defending our small total. Good signs though. [Anton]

Sharks JCLT20 Runners Up

October 11, 2022

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

September 3, 2022

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

August 30, 2022

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

August 1, 2022

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]
