Mo Chaudry


On his first appearance for the team at the start of 2004 Chaudry made the mistake of implying that he bowled a bit and batted a bit. This revelation led him to being inked in at number 11 on the scorecard and allowed to open the attack. Chaudry didn’t bat but racked up a half-century as his six overs went for 50 runs. Although he took two wickets both were scratched out as no balls.

Since that inauspicious start Chaudry has developed into a key member of the team, dealing in some powerful blows and the odd sensational bowling spell. He produced a scintillating display to carry Offley to victory against the odds against Houghton Town last season with a dramatic intervention of 4-14. Despite an apparent inability to pitch the first ball of any spell even vaguely near the cut strip, Chaudry’s pace and verve makes him a useful weapon.Chaudry’s batting can also be highly effective. Blessed with a bat that weighs in excess of three pounds, Chaudry relishes the opportunity to get to grips with the bowling and is not afraid to take the aerial route. He hits the ball with power and surpassed the career 1,000-run mark in his second season.

An intense and competitive individual, Chaudry is invariably an asset in the field. His commitment and enthusiasm are second to none although at times his keenness seems to get the better of him and he shells the odd chance in his eagerness to get at the ball. This reckless enthusiasm led to him dislocating his thumb as he spilled a chance last season. He shrugged off the pain and returned to the line-up the following week.
