Sat 2nd Sept – 1st XI v Old Rutlishians

OLD RUTLISHIANS 139 (49.5) lost to DULWICH 140-7 (48.5) by 3 wickets


Dulwich travelled to Old Rutlishians for the last match of the season in Division 2 of the Travelbag Surrey Championship, knowing that the loser of this match faced almost certain relegation. They emerged triumphant in a low scoring match, securing victory by three wickets in the penultimate over.

Old Ruts chose to bat, but lost their first wicket in the third over when Jon Lodwick had Salman Mohammed caught behind by Will Bancroft. Dan Wood and Rory Pemberton took the score to 44 in the 13th over when the same combination accounted for Pemberton, out for 23 off 35 balls. Lodwick went on to complete his ten over spell with figures of 2-23. Left arm spinner Levi Olver had joined the attack as early as the twelfth over, and his sustained pressure was rewarded when he had Chris Mude caught for a painstaking 2 off 26 balls in the 20th. Wood was now joined by former skipper Joe Riches, called up in desperation for his first match of the season after returning from an overseas secondment. Together they added 31 for the fourth wicket to take the score to 98-3 after 32 overs, seemingly well poised to accelerate the scoring rate.

At this point the wheels came off. Salaar Waqar had joined the attack and obtained prodigious turn from the start. In his fifth over he had Wood stumped for 53, off 77 balls, and four balls later bowled skipper Sonny Cooper for a duck. Olver returned for a second spell and took two wickets with his first three balls, to finish with 3-28 off his ten overs. In his last over Waqar took two wickets in an over for the second time, and completed his ten with the remarkable figures of 4-13. Ruts had lost six wickets in eleven overs for just 17 runs. Last man Alex Barnicott thus joined Riches with the score on 115-9 in the 43rd over, and together they eked out 24 runs for the last wicket before Barnicott was stumped off Pat George from the penultimate ball of the innings, to give Bancroft his fifth dismissal. George, as the third spinner, had maintained the pressure, finishing with the creditable figures of 1-22 off 9.5 overs.

Tom Savill, in his final match for Dulwich, opened the batting with acting skipper Ed Stolle, but was out after facing just four balls, caught off Cooper for 4. This brought in Matt Balch, who was still there at the end of the innings, more than three hours later. The second wicket pair had taken the score to 39 in the eleventh over when Stolle was surprised to be given out caught at slip off the off spin of Barnicott. A second off spinner Richard Woolland now joined the attack, and bowled with unerring accuracy, with only 11 runs coming off his ten overs. Balch defended resolutely against him, while Nick Hudson went on the attack at the other end. The pair had added 35 in 13.3 overs when Hudson was caught off the third off spinner, Ross Trimmings, having made 24 off 30 balls. Waqar went quickly, trying to sweep Woolland, to leave Dulwich on 77-4 after 26 overs.

Balch was now joined by Lodwick. Balch continued to defend against Woolland and Trimmings, while Lodwick attacked the other bowlers. The pair had added 46 for the fifth wicket in 16 overs when Aussie OP Tom Collett had Lodwick caught behind for 30, off 49 balls. Cooper had Bancroft lbw three overs later, and in the next over Ed Hopkins fell to a remarkable running and diving catch by Woolland off Collett. Dulwich had declined from 123-4 to 132-7, leaving eight runs needed for victory off the last 4.3 overs. With nerves jangling, Balch and Munawar inched towards their target until Balch had the reward of hitting the winning run with seven balls to spare. He had faced 147 balls for his 44, a crucial innings in the context of the game.

Dulwich thus climb two places to finish the season in seventh place, while their opponents suffer relegation for the second year in succession. Dulwich will be hoping to recruit some fresh blood over the winter to help launch a successful season under a new captain next year. 

Sat 26th August – 1st XI v Malden Wanderers

MALDEN WANDERERS 299-7 (50) beat DULWICH 112 (32.1) by 187 runs


Dulwich travelled to Malden Wanderers hoping for the win that would ease the threat of relegation from Division 2 of the Travelbag Surrey Championship, but another wretched display saw them go down to defeat by the huge margin of 187 runs.

The home side chose to bat, and were lucky not to lose an early wicket as Jon Lodwick repeatedly found the edge of Aussie OP Jacob Wilson’s bat only to see the ball shoot between the slips to the boundary. With a third man posted from his third over onwards he was able to impose some restraint, and after conceding 17 off his first two overs, the remaining eight cost just 19. Nonetheless the 50 came up in the tenth over, and it took the advent of James Bridgland to secure the breakthrough, as he took a wicket in his first over for the fourth time in as many matches for the first team this season. Wickets for Lodwick and skipper Alex Gledhill reduced Malden to 81-3 after 20.2 overs, but this only brought in Will Sabey, who dominated a stand with Wilson that put on 143 for the fourth wicket in 23 overs. Sabey made 92 of these off 85 balls before being bowled by Kamran Munawar. Wilson had by now reached 90, and he continued past his century before also falling to Munawar for 116, off 132 balls. Wilson had been joined by James Wackett, who lived up to his name by smashing 40 off 22 balls, including three sixes off one Gledhill over, before being stumped off the last ball of the innings. This was Munawar’s second wicket of the over, and three wickets in his last ten balls had given him figures of 4-60 off nine overs. Dulwich thus claimed their second bowling point as Malden finished on a mammoth 299-7 off their 50 overs.

Ed Stolle and Matt Balch had advanced the Dulwich innings sedately to 14 after six overs when Michael Cottrell and that man Sabey each took two wickets in his fourth over. This left them reeling on 17-4, coincidentally the same score that they had been reduced to in the first meeting between the sides. A third wicket for Cottrell made it 26-5. Will Bancroft dug in, and helped Stolle double the score before falling in the 15th over with the score on 52, and Stolle himself went five overs later to make it 56-7. He had scored 44 of those runs, off 49 balls, while his first six partners had managed just nine runs between them. The eighth wicket fell at 67, whereupon Gledhill took part in two partnerships that added 45 for the last two wickets. He played second fiddle to Munawar, whose 21 (off 26 balls) was the second highest score of the innings, in a ninth wicket stand of 22, and then added 23 for the last wicket with Bridgland. Cottrell returned to remove the latter for 11 (off 12 balls) and finish with 4-32 off 9.1 overs, while Gledhill remained unbeaten on 14. Dulwich were dismissed in just 32.1 overs for 112.

Dulwich thus gain just two points from a match for the third week running, and have slipped back to ninth place after Bank of England secured their fourth consecutive victory. The final match is away to Old Rutlishians, who are just four points above them in eighth place. Victory for Dulwich would secure another year in Division 2, while defeat would almost certainly lead to relegation.

Sat 19th August – 1st XI v Bank of England

BANK OF ENGLAND 233-6 (50) beat DULWICH 153 (42.1) by 80 runs


A depleted Dulwich side were thoroughly outplayed in their Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 match against Bank of England, going down to defeat by 80 runs.

Dulwich gave their opponents first use of a good batting pitch, only to see them get off to a flying start as 21 runs came off the first two overs from Jon Lodwick and Kamran Munawar. It was Munawar who made the breakthrough in his second over, dismissing Charlie O’Brien, who had made 23 off 16 balls, with the score on 29 after just 3.2 overs. Fellow opener Sam Brandon scored the next eleven runs before also falling to Munawar for 15, off 19 balls, in the eighth over with the score on 40. Damon Ridgway and skipper Richard Rawlings now consolidated as the bowling tightened, and the 50 did not come up until the 13th over, but they gradually increased the tempo. With several spin bowling regulars unavailable, former captain Graeme Hough returned to the first team for the first time since 2007, and got off to a good start by conceding just nine runs off his first six overs. But he then came in for some stick as Rawlings went on the rampage, with 35 coming off his last four.

The pair had added 133 for the third wicket off 34.3 overs when both fell in successive overs. Rawlings was the first to go, brilliantly caught by Ross Ewing off Lodwick for 72, off 98 balls. Ridgway, who had taken 21 balls to get off the mark, succumbed to a juggling catch on the boundary by Assan Crawford-Khan off skipper Alex Gledhill for 71, off 124 balls, with the score on 192 in the 43rd over. The next few batsmen tried to push the score along in the remaining seven overs, resulting in a wicket apiece for Crawford-Khan and Munawar, who returned to finish with 3-43 off his ten overs. A brief cameo by Ed Jones, who hit an unbeaten 18 off 11 balls, saw his side to 233-6 after their 50 overs.

The Dulwich reply got off to a disastrous start when Ed Stolle was out lbw to the second ball of the innings. Matt Balch and Kristian Williman then raised hopes by adding 70 in 18 overs for the second wicket, before both fell in the same over. Balch was first to go, caught at midwicket after making 26 off 52 balls. Off the next legitimate ball both batsmen found themselves at the same end, with Williman run out for 34, off 58 balls. Ewing provided a quick 16 off 14 balls, but was the next to go with the score on 92, after 23 overs. Lodwick, with 19 off 40 balls, also kept the score moving, but was the first of five wickets that fell as Dulwich declined from 113-4 to 127-9 in the space of seven overs. It took a last wicket stand of 26 between Munawar, who finished unbeaten with 22 off 26 balls, and Hough to lift the score past 150 and gain a batting point that could prove to be vital at the end of the season. Hough became the fourth lbw of the innings, having made 9 off 15 balls, as Dulwich were dismissed for 153 off the first ball of the 43rd over.

Dulwich gained just two points from a disappointing match and slip one place to eighth, just 11 points ahead of Epsom and 13 above Bank of England, whose third successive win has given them an unexpected chance of survival. Next week Dulwich travel to Malden Wanderers, who are currently fifth. Dulwich will be looking for the vital win that will steer them away from the threat of relegation.


Sat 12th August – 1st XI v Chessington

DULWICH 108 (45.2) lost to CHESSINGTON 109-7 (33) by 3 wickets


A top order batting collapse saw Dulwich go down to defeat by three wickets in a low scoring Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 match at home to Chessington.

Dulwich chose to bat on winning the toss, and Matt Balch and acting skipper Tom Savill put on 12 off the first four overs with eccentric running looking more likely to take a wicket than the bowlers. This all changed in the fifth over as Savill and Kristian Williman were bowled by successive balls from Colin Watson, who followed up by having Assan Crawford-Khan caught behind and went on to complete his ten overs with 3-25. In the meantime Ronan Qazi had Henry Hazlewood lbw, and when Balch was also caught behind in Prince Singh’s first over, having resisted stoutly for 39 balls for 10, Dulwich were in disarray at 26-5 off 12 overs. Salaar Waqar and Will Bancroft now combined in a stand of 31 for the sixth wicket, with Bancroft defending staunchly for 39 balls for five, while Waqar was more aggressive, scoring 29 off 54. Skipper Dan Yarnley removed Bancroft with his second ball and bowled his ten overs straight through for just ten runs. Luke Barnard dismissed Waqar and Leon Sealy while conceding just 28 runs off his ten. Jon Lodwick and Patrick George thus came together at 68-8 in the 31st over. Both defended resolutely, with Lodwick scoring just one run off his first 32 balls before going on the attack. George gave him solid support for 46 balls for six. The pair had added 37 for the ninth wicket when George was bowled by Qazi. James Bridgland fell to Singh five balls later to leave Lodwick stranded on 30, off 61 balls. Dulwich were all out for 108 in the 46th over.

The Chessington batsmen didn’t find scoring any easier, and Lodwick and Sealy each picked up an early wicket to reduce them to 15-2 after five overs. Bridgland joined the attack for the 13th over, and maintained his record of taking a wicket in his first over, but had to come off after that one over due to injury. Rob Edmond and Karl Thorns thus came together with the score on 34-3, and Thorns went on the attack against George and Waqar to add 30 for the fourth wicket in just 4.1 overs. Waqar had his revenge, removing Edmond for 20 and Matt Alldis for 5 to make it 70-5. Thorns and Qazi added 18 before Sealy returned to dismiss Thorns for 29, and Waqar had Adam Lawrence stumped without scoring in the next over to make it 90-7. The match seemed to hang in the balance, but Yarnley had held himself back to number nine, and after playing himself in for nine balls he hit four fours off Sealy’s tenth over to see his side home by three wickets.

Dulwich take just two points from this match. They remain in seventh place, but are now level on points with Dorking and are just ten ahead of ninth placed Epsom. Next week they have a crucial home match against bottom club Bank of England, and will be looking to avenge their defeat in the first match between the sides.

Sat 5th August – 1st XI v Worcester Park

WORCESTER PARK 186-9 (50) lost to DULWICH 180-4 (44.5) by 6 wickets


Dulwich were set 180 to win in a rain-affected Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 match at Worcester Park, and achieved victory by six wickets in the penultimate over.

Dulwich chose to field with rain showers forecast, and got an early reward when Leon Sealy struck with the first ball of the second over. He bowled his ten overs straight through, picking up a second wicket in his fifth over and conceding just 22 runs. James Bridgland also struck in his first over to reduce Park to 46-3 in the 13th, and also bowled his ten overs in succession for just 24 runs. Skipper Rob Hill and Connor Bliss needed 17 overs to add 45 before Salaar Waqar dismissed Hill in his second over to reduce them to 91-4 in the 30th over. Waqas Sagar now came in and played a typically aggressive innings of 45 off 55 balls. He had added 48 in ten overs with Bliss before Waqar bowled Bliss for a painstaking 35 off 85 balls. Waqar added his third wicket three balls later, and Sagar became his fourth victim in his last over as he finished with 4-47 off his ten. Assan Crawford-Khan had now joined the attack, and he maintained the pressure by conceding just 21 runs off seven overs for the wicket of keeper Ben Davies. Tom Savill ran out Gary Marshall, and the innings closed on 186-9 after 50 overs.

There had been two rain breaks during the innings, both lasting about 30 minutes. Tea was taken during the second, but four overs playing time were lost. Dulwich therefore had 46 overs to bat, with an adjusted target of 180 to win. Acting skipper Ed Stolle fell in the fourth over, having made 13 of the first 19 runs. This brought in Kristian Williman to join Savill, and the pair added 58 for the second wicket in just 12 overs to put Dulwich well ahead of the rate. The advent of spin brought about an abrupt change in tempo. Sagar had Savill lbw for 34 in his first over, and went on to bowl his ten overs straight through for just 18 runs. He was joined after four overs by left armer Mike Arundell. He also took a wicket in his first over, bowling Henry Hazlewood for 5, and ended with 1-32 off his nine overs.

Crawford-Khan thus joined Williman with the score on 97-3 in the 23rd over, and the pair proceeded mostly in singles until Sagar completed his spell. At this point 48 runs were still needed off 11 overs. Skipper Hill now brought himself on, only to see his first two balls sail back over his head as Crawford-Khan hit them both for six. With the shackles broken, the pair sailed steadily towards their target until Crawford-Khan was bowled in the penultimate over with just two runs needed for victory. The fourth wicket pair had added 81 in 22 overs, with Williman making his first 50 for the Club to finish with 62 not out off 126 balls. Crawford-Khan also made his best first team score (under any of his various names) with 40 off 69. Waqar calmly hit his first ball for two to bring his side victory with seven balls to spare.

This win lifts Dulwich two places to seventh, and their last two completed matches have now brought them victories over the first and third placed sides in the division. Next week they have a home match against Chessington, who are three places but only eight points above them in the table. Dulwich narrowly lost the first match between the sides, and they will be looking to gain their revenge in the return fixture.
