Ahmad Elech – CCC Capped Player

Ahmad Elech, received his CCC Cap (No. 262) from Stan Nicholson, CCC Manager of Cricket and Finance, prior to the CCC Representative XI match at Tunbridge Wells CC against the MCC, on Wednesday 18 August.

Ahmed has played 37 matches for the CCC since 2012. A top order batsman who also provides useful medium seam, he has scored 1158 runs at 32.17, and taken 12 wickets at 17.50 for the CCC. Ahmad was with Holtwhites Trinibis CC (Herts) when he first represented the CCC, and most of his top club career has been with Ealing CC, with a short spell at Stanmore CC. He has been a ‘back-bone’ to both those club’s in League and Cup Competition matches.

Nine years commitment to CCC cricket is a long time in the modern game, He would have received his CCC Cap much earlier but his business, carpet importing, is mainly done off-season, and that prevented him for joining any of the tours we have made in the last 9 years.  

From 1922 to 1947, CCC Caps were awarded to any player representing the Conference in a full representative match for the first time. Thereafter Caps were awarded (& numbered) at the discretion of the CCC Executive Council, although since the mid 1970’s they have mainly been awarded to players undertaking a major overseas tour.

With the CCC tour programme now mainly short tours to ICC Associate countries, the CCC decided to award Caps to those who have played 25 or more Representative & Tour matches.
