WOMBATS CHEW THROUGH CHUO (27/07/2014)
The Wombats easily accounted for the students of Chuo University in a Japan Cup T20 game at YCAC. The Wombats were given an early advantage with the scheduling seeing the poor Chuo players have to play two matches back to back in scorching heat in Yokohama. Firstly in the morning they were seen off by the Indian Tigers in convincing fashion and then in the afternoon too seeing them bend over and cop two spankings in a row - and have to pay a hefty fee for the privilege! (I remember seeing something similar in a Chiang Mai report a few years back!).

WOMBATS STRANGLE MAX (19/07/2014)
The Tokyo Wombats romped to a 10 wicket victory over Max Cricket Club on Saturday July 19 at the Sano #1 ground, thereby entrenching their position at the top of the JCL Division I table. Rain threatened to spoil the party for the Wombats in the afternoon midway through the run-chase, but luck (and a nicely controlled batting effort) was on our side this time and the win was sealed for the loss of no wickets.

WOMBATS WIPE FLOOR WITH
After surviving the deadly typhoon during the week, we hastily made our way out to Sano, Tochigi, via a variety of modes of transportation. Everyone turned up with no hassles and got set for the battle ahead (shout out to Luke, for driving up with all the club gear).
WOMBATS HUNT DOWN
SHARKS AGAIN (28/06/2014)
On a wet morning in Tokyo
the Wommies were up at the crack of dawn to take on
their old foe -- the Chiba Sharks. Most of us thought
the game was going to be cancelled due to the weather
and that Dino had just stitched us up saying it was
sunny at Fuji because he was so lonely and needed some
company, how wrong we were....
WEARY WOMBATS STUFFED BY
A confident Wombats team
went up to Sano looking for a first victory in the last
4-5 games against the Miyaji family outfit, in fact no
one could quite remember when the last win against them
was, but all were very sure that were due for a win
against the bastards!
WOMBATS NEARLY MAX OUT
AGAINST MAX CC (25/05/2014)
Another one of the
legendary mini-bus trips to Fuji on a somewhat overcast
day. We were all psyched about the match on the back of
an unbeaten run so far this season and it's always good
to play in Fuji. I'd like to state that we devised a
match plan on the eve of the game at Hooters Shibuya,
but we all know we don't go there for that.
WOMBATS KICK-START JAPAN
CUP CAMPAIGN WITH WIN (04/05/2014)
Well, the Wombats (7/177
from 20 overs) beat the Indian Tigers (100 all out in 14
overs) by 77 runs in their opening game of the Japan Cup
T20 competition at the YCAC ground on Sunday, May
WYVERNS WILT TO WOMBAT
Well, it has been too long
since the game for me to remember everything in detail.
Between procrastination and work commitments the long
awaited report is finally here. It was a memorable day
for me in particular as this is where the story started
of the "Bag Gone Walkabout" saga. But we all know that
WOMBATS CONFUSE FUJI FOR W.A.
AND CULL SHARKS (13/04/2014)
With the Chiba Sharks
"holding all the cards" and having a "bowling attack second
to none", the Wombats figured they were going to be up
against it in this match. However, the (Wom) bat is
mightier than the (Chiba) pen (or imagination), and the
result was the same as it has been in every clash, bar one,
in the history of clashes between these two sides: a Wombat
victory, by five wickets.
