Sat 20th May – 1st XI v Esher

ESHER 268-4 (50) beat DULWICH 181-6 (50) by 87 runs

Scorecard

A depleted Dulwich side were thoroughly outplayed in their Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 match at Esher, going down to defeat by 87 runs.

With the pitch starting damp and more rain forecast, Alex Gledhill chose to field on winning the toss. Leon Sealy produced an excellent opening spell, taking the first wicket in his second over, and bowling eight overs for just 16 runs. Matt Quaife, promoted to the first team after taking five for the seconds last week, could not repeat the feat, and was replaced for the 12th over by Sam Ellison, who removed the opposing skipper with his first ball and started with three successive maidens. Esher had reached just 38-2 after 16 overs, but Alex Martin and OP Shoaib Khan then launched a counter attack which saw the score start to mount rapidly. The pair had added 196 in 36 overs when Khan ran himself out trying to run a bye to the keeper, having made 88 off 104 balls. Nathan Roberts was promoted in search of quick runs and obliged with 28 off just ten balls, including four huge sixes. Sealy, having conceded just 21 runs off his first nine overs, went for 22 off the last, but was rewarded with the wicket of Roberts, caught on the boundary with two balls to go. Martin finished undefeated on 124, off 143 balls, having been dropped on 0 and 99. Khan had also survived a chance early in his innings, and Dulwich were left to rue their fielding lapses. Esher finished on 268-4 after their 50 overs, having added 78 off the last seven.

Roberts now opened the bowling in partnership with Khurram Irshad. Ed Stolle and Kristian Williman launched their reply without undue alarm, adding 28 together before Williman was caught behind off Roberts off the last ball of the eighth over for 12. Stolle was adjudged lbw for the same score in Roberts’ next over. He followed up with a wicket in each of his next three overs, as Ross Ewing, making his first team debut, Guy Skinner and Will Bancroft managed just 11 runs between them. All three fell to stunning catches, in sharp contrast to the first innings. Roberts came off after eight overs with figures of 5-20, having reduced Dulwich from 28-0 to 52-5.

With a win now out of reach, Dulwich’s best hope was to try and reach 150 for a batting point. Stuart Ferguson, making a rare first team appearance, was joined by Salaar Waqar. Spinners Ben Collins and Nick Winder kept them on a tight rein, bowling 20 overs between them for just 46 runs. Nonetheless they advanced steadily towards their target, adding 56 for the sixth wicket in 20 overs before Ferguson was caught off Winder for 28. Ellison joined Waqar and defended resolutely until the spinners completed their spells, but upped the tempo when the quickies returned. The 150 target was reached with 17 balls to spare, and the pair now launched a blitz of their own to add a further 30 runs and garner a second batting point. Ellison, having taken 21 balls to get off the mark, finished with 29 off 44, while Waqar’s excellent unbeaten 64 came off 96 balls and was his maiden half century for the club. Their unbeaten seventh wicket partnership had added 73 in 14.1 overs, to close on 181-6.

Dulwich once again ended a disappointing day with just two points. Next week they will be hoping to put in a better all-round performance when they visit newly promoted Dorking for their third successive away match.

The weekend rounded-up – 27th August

The penultimate weekend of the Surrey Championship saw key matches taking place for the 1st and 4th XIs.

At Burbage Road, the 1st XI had to beat visitors Esher to take their promotion push from Division 2 into the final weekend of the season. Tom Savill (94) continued his excellent season with his sixth half-century in ten appearances and at 133-1 Dulwich looked set to post a very competitive total. Unfortunately momentum was lost and they were dismissed for 188 – a target that Esher chased down for the loss of three wickets. A full report is here. Much progress made from last season and Alex Gledhill’s men, seen deep in contemplation below, will look to come back stronger again in 2017.

A final day title shootout will take place after the 4th XI lost by two wickets to Wimbledon at the DSG. Will Cooper (51) contributed a half-century in Dulwich’s 205-9 in 45 overs. In reply, Wimbledon snuck to 208-8 with a few overs to spare despite the best efforts of David Knightbridge (9-2-33-4) - full report here. So the season goes down to the wire next Saturday, with a strong looking side set to battle it out with Spencer and regain the Premier Division title.

Saturday’s only victors were their 3rd XI who recorded a satisfying win to stop their Wimbledon counterparts winning their Premier Division title – handing it instead to Spencer. A tough wicket and lengthy outfield meant Dulwich were reasonably content to crawl to 118 all out in 45.4 overs. A succession of wickets followed, with Wimbledon falling 14 runs short in reply – all the action described here.

Divison 2 champions the 2nd XI suffered a title-winning hangover with a four wicket defeat on the road at Esher (full report here) and the 6th XI lost by the same margin against Bexley – James Worley making 54 not out in Dulwich’s 158-7 and Josh Nava taking 4-40 with the ball (full report here) . There was no 5th XI league game on Saturday.

More silverware is up for grabs next weekend when the Academy face Sunbury Chieftains in the Wasim Raja Shield Final after beating Sanderstead in their semi-final on Sunday. Young off-spinner Jonny Stone was the star with the ball, taking three of the top four wickets and helping reduce the visitors to the DSG to 119 all out – a target that was seen off with minimal fuss for the loss of four wickets. Full report here. The final will be played this Sunday at Banstead CC – 1pm start. All support welcome!

2 June: The Sevens Win on Tour!

Weekly update 27th to 30th May- the Sevens win on tour!  

  

 

7s victory nears at Witham Friary, Somerset on Sunday

 (Thursday, 2 June)  On the 4th Annual tour to Somerset and Wiltshire over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend the 7th team won their first game of the season alongside two losses and one abandoned fixture.  Given the characters on the trip I imagine there was a lot of “well informed and considerate debate about a variety of issues facing the world today”. See the tour pics in two galleries>>

 On Saturday the 1sts played their last limited over game for the first part of the season and had another win to be at 3 wins and a loss and in 2nd spot although the top 5 are all within 1 point of each other.   At home against Farnham and on a helpful wicket our seam attack bowled well and with a good spell of left arm spin from Levi Olver they were all out for 151 in the 50th over.  In reply Majeed Jehangir again top scored as we won by 5 wickets in the penultimate over.

 No close game for the 2nds this week as they came up against a strong Wimbledon side 202 for 8 eked out in the 50 overs, James Siddle top score with 45.  Wimbledon got them 1 down and didn’t really give a chance.

 The 3rds were on top at DSG against Wimbledon with Charlie Kemp scoring his second century in a row.  A chanceless (until the end) 103 as we made 199 for 8.  Good bowling and fielding left Wimbledon requiring 30 off the last two overs but unfortunately some loose bowling and fielding under pressure allowed them to sneak home. Read the full report here>>

 No such dramas for the 4ths as they thrashed last year’s champions.  A fifty for Joel and Tarun 40* as we made 208 for 6.  We then bowled them out for 41 in 18 overs.  David Gritton the pick of the bowlers with 5 for 17.

 For the 2nd week in a row the 5ths lost a close game to an unbeaten team – Bromley Common.  We bowled and fielded well with Deb Biswas taking 5 for 24 on his return to Dulwich.  At 40 for 0 we had a chance and at 89 for 7 we had made it tough for ourselves.  Finally all out 10 runs short with 3 balls left. Read the full report here>>

The 6ths also lost to Old Elthamians (their 3rd team).  We made 184 for 6 with 50s for Alan Clarke and Mal Persaud.  They made them with 6 overs and 4 wickets to spare. Match gallery here>>

 On Sunday the 2s easily beat Alleyn Ad-hoc with Majeed Jehangir scoring 100 not out in a total of 280 for 6 and Qasim Hussain taking 5 wickets as we bowled them all out for 161.  In the Development side Tom Barnard took 5 for 57 as Old Tenisonians made 197 for 7.  Julian Dean then scored 90 as we came just short on 193 for 8 and that rare result – a draw.

5 May: Overseas player arrives and league games start

Overseas  player arrives and league games start

Thursday, 5 May: Another big week at Dulwich.  Firstly welcome to our new overseas player Majeed Jehangir (look out for his profile which will be on the web soon) who flew in from Pakistan this week.  Please introduce yourself to him and make his stay at Dulwich memorable.Saturday sees the start of the Men’s league season in both the Surrey Championship (1sts at home v Old Emanuel, 2nds at Malden Wanderers, 3rds at DSG v Spencer and 4ths at Spencer) and the Kent Regional League (5ths at Roebucks and 6ths at DSG v Blackheath).  Even the new 7ths may start next week.On Sunday we have a strong team in the first round of the national KO at Beddington, the 2nds at DSG Dulwich Kingstone, the Development XI v South Bank at DSG and the Ladies playing at home in their 2nd league match against Margate.We also have Colts matches U15 at Banstead (Sunday morning), U13s at Tadworth (Sunday morning), U11 pairs H v SR & Kenley(Sunday morning)  U10s v Purley at DSG (Saturday) and the U9s at DSG v Alleyn & Honor Oak (Monday evening).Then finally the 1st round of the 20/20 competition at Alleyn and Honor Oak.  176 people representing Dulwich CC and the colts coaching programme enters its second week.
 

Wonderful weather and lots of cricket

Thursday, 5 May: Last weekend saw cricketers all over Dulwich dust off old gear and unwrap new.  The colts coaching programme started and numbers in all age groups were higher than originally expected.  The Royal Wedding and Bank Holidays fuelling the need to play cricket rather than distracting.

The 1s and 2s both played our local rivals Alleyn & Honor Oak for two wins.  In the 1sts we bowled them out for 152 (James Soulsby 3 for and Anil Mahey 4 for). Anil as captain can bring himself on when the batting looks weakest to snaffle a few, perhaps All-Rounder is an appropriate term.  With runs from Richard Farrow and James Soulsby we won by 5 wkts.

Across the trees the 2nds batted first and good runs from Gareth Cornick and Oliver Steward helped us to 210 for 6.  The medium pace of Tom Peacock and Stephen Hale proved effective in a good win.

The 3rds lost v Finchley and the scores “177-5 innings closed (Abu Arabi 68*, James Chudley 50*)” tell us all we need to know – an early collapse, recovery but in the end not enough.  The 4ths let St Clements score an impressive 261 off 40.  Good runs from Tarun Mahey(46) but 4 run outs as we were 100 short.  The 5ths had a winning draw against St James with new boys Matt Ball, Tom Bale and Muhammad Junaid all starting their Dulwich career well.

The ladies lost their first league game as Bells Yew Green scored 238 from 35 and we replied with 138-3. Sam Hulcoop top scored – a career best of 65.  They had 2 very good county batsman that made the difference.

The Academy had a friendly against  Long Ditton with experienced Mark Kelly and youngster Zobeh Mohammad bowling well. After more runs from the machine Farrow, Sunil Mahey – with a broken finger – and a Man of the Match performance from Rory Balfour , we won a really close game.

The Sunday 2s won scoring a massive 317 for 4 (Levi Olver 113no and Amer Saeed 89 in good form).  Tom Coward took a few wickets as we bowled Goldsmiths out for 126.  The Development Side beat Spencer by 44 runs with a Louis Hyde 50 and 5 wkts for Dan Edwards.

In Colts games, the U15s lost to Purley-  a 4th wicket stand couldn’t be broken after 30s by Joshua Robinson and Ben Henderson.  The U10As have played 2 games beating Banstead in a close game and then a slightly easier victory against Old Whitgiftians (cameo innings from Reuben Duncan and Louis Finegan helping).

The U10Bs attended the Esher Festival on Monday 2 May and performed very creditably.  The boys acquitted themselves very well and were very competitive, winning one group match (against Chertsey) and losing two but by very small margins against teams that had obviously played together for a long time (Esher and Ashtead).  Both U13s also played but I’m sorry I do not have results yet.
