A lack of consistency is the only thought that comes to mind to sum up the 1st XI season having finished the season in 8th place. On the plus side, there were a few spectacular games including a winning draw away from home against the league winners early on in the season, and chasing down 265 in a reduced overs game at Leicester Ivanhoe with one ball to spare, relieving some relegation pressure for the final few games.
Batsman of the season: Bhargav Modha
