Sat 11th June – 1st XI v Purley

DULWICH 213-7 (40) beat PURLEY 99 (22.3) by 114 runs


Dulwich overcame both the elements and the opposition to record a convincing victory in their Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 match at home to Purley.

Following the imposition of a four point penalty after receiving two reports of sub-standard pitches from their first three home matches, Dulwich decided to avoid the risk of further point deductions by transferring this match to the third team pitch at DSG, which had been playing well all season. A lot of hard work was done to make this happen, which was well rewarded as the DSG pitch gained high praise from both players and umpires.

Purley won the toss, and with rain forecast inevitably decided to field. They were unable to make an early breakthrough, as Ed Stolle and Tom Savill put on 41 for the first wicket in 7.3 overs. Stolle was first to go, having looked in good form while making 29 off as many balls, and Savill followed on the same score with 12 off 18. This brought together Ed Towner and Will Bancroft. The pair had taken the score to 136-2 off 31.4 overs when intermittent drizzle turned into heavy rain and drove the players from the field. By the time the rain had stopped and the Umpires deemed the outfield was dry enough for play to resume, 30 overs had been lost and Dulwich had just 8.2 left to post a defensible score.

Bancroft fell soon after the resumption without adding to his 43, but this brought in Naeem Iqbal, who proceeded to flay the Purley bowling to all parts, scoring 39 off just 17 balls with four sixes. He was out in the 38th over, and was followed in the next over by Towner, whose impressive 69 had come off just 86 balls. Two wickets fell in the last over as Jon Lodwick and Salaar Waqar both sacrificed themselves in going for ambitious second and third runs respectively. Four wickets had gone down in eleven balls, forcing numbers ten and eleven to frantically don their pads (and in one case his kit), but Leon Sealy and Levi Olver saw the innings to its conclusion without further mishap. The last 8.2 overs had yielded 77 runs, to lift the Dulwich total to 213-7 after their 40 overs.

With just 30 overs to bat, Purley needed to score at 7.13 per over for victory, or more realistically 5.33 to achieve 160 for a winning draw. Dulwich maintained attacking fields throughout, which enabled the batsmen to score at a steady rate but also had fielders in position for any edges or mishits that might come. And come they did! Iqbal took the first wicket, caught by keeper Bancroft, off only the third ball, and Kamran Munawar had the other opener well caught by skipper Alex Gledhill above his head in the second over. The innings was now led by Trinidadian OP Jason Batson, in stands of 28 for the third wicket and 24 for the fourth, but an excellent spell of 3-25 in seven overs by Lodwick destroyed the middle order. He was well supported by Sealy whose four overs for 16 runs included the wicket of opposing skipper James Scott, caught by Savill at second slip.

When Batson became Lodwick’s third wicket to make it 67-6 after 14 overs, there seemed to be nothing left for Purley but to bat out time, but the tail didn’t see it that way and indulged in a weird mixture of defence and attack. Olver was the beneficiary as he induced catches to midwicket (Gledhill), second slip (a superb low catch by Savill) and long off (Sealy), before finishing the innings by having the last man lbw. He had taken 4-9 off just 3.3 overs. Purley had been bowled out in 22.3 overs for 99.

This was Dulwich’s fourth win in six matches, but the two teams above them also won, so they remain in third place. Next week they will have their third consecutive home match, against Chessington who are currently in seventh place.

Sat 4th June – 1st XI v Farnham

FARNHAM 112 (46.4) lost to DULWICH 116-6 (40) by 4 wickets


A depleted Dulwich side emerged victorious by four wickets in their Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 match at home to Farnham.

Dulwich were missing six regular players, and gave first team debuts to three newcomers. Acting skipper Ed Stolle won the toss and elected to field. One of the newcomers, Kamran Munawar, fresh from taking five wickets for the second team last week, opened the bowling and produced a devastating spell of 4-11 off eight overs. With Naeem Iqbal also picking up a wicket, Farnham were reduced to 23-5 after twelve overs. Sam Powell and Ben Ungaretti steadied the ship, adding 55 in 16.2 overs for the sixth wicket. With the three regular spinners all missing, Stolle turned to the left arm spin of Richard King (who bowled seam in his previous matches) and the second newcomer James Hirst, and even had a rare bowl himself. All three had respectable figures, but it was King who made the breakthrough by bowling Ungaretti for 19 with the score on 78. Powell followed on the same score, run out by Iqbal for 33. The eighth wicket pair then took the score to the dreaded 111, when the recall of Iqbal brought the innings to an abrupt conclusion as he took the last three wickets in seven balls without conceding a run. Farnham were all out for 112, with Iqbal finishing with 4-23 off 9.4 overs.

The Farnham openers were unable to apply the same pressure as their Dulwich counterparts, and Stolle led from the front as he and Ed Towner added 30 for the first wicket in 7.4 overs. Stolle was the first to go, bowled by Ungaretti for 19, off just 30 balls, and Zakir Rostami went on the same score. King joined Towner, and together they added 32 in 11.3 overs for the third wicket. Both fell to acrobatic catches with the score on 62, Towner making a resolute 20 off 59 balls, and King 18 off 38. This was the fifth time in the match that two wickets had fallen on the same score, but worse was to follow this time as Will Bancroft went first ball. In just five balls Dulwich had gone from 62-2 to 62-5. Two of the wickets had fallen to left arm spinner Chris Terry, in the middle of an eleven over spell for just ten runs, and he followed up by dismissing Iqbal to make it 71-6. The match hung in the balance, but the third newcomer, Jack Anderson, now entered the fray, and he capped an excellent day for the debutants by seeing his side home with 26 not out off just 40 balls. He was well supported by Leon Sealy, who curbed his natural aggression until the game was almost won, finishing with 15 not out off 54 balls. The pair put on 45 in 14.4 overs for the unbeaten seventh wicket to secure victory by four wickets.

Dulwich have now won three of their first five matches, and climb to third in the table. Next week they will be looking for further success at home to Purley, who languish in ninth place having yet to win a game.

Sat 28th May – 1st XI v Worcester Park

DULWICH 256-8 (50) lost to WORCESTER PARK 257-5 (49.3) by 5 wickets


Dulwich had a last over finish for the second successive week, but this time were on the wrong end of the result as they lost their Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 match at Worcester Park by 5 wickets.

Dulwich elected to bat and once again got off to a dream start as Ed Stolle and Tom Savill bettered last week’s opening stand by one in adding 91 for the first wicket in 17.5 overs. Stolle’s dismissal for 29, off 56 balls, brought in Ed Towner, making his first team debut. The second wicket pair could not sustain the momentum, their stand of 66 taking 18.1 overs as Waqas Sagar applied the pressure, conceding just 25 runs off his ten overs. Towner was first to go, run out after taking 65 balls for his 26, and Savill followed two overs later. Having taken just 45 balls for his 50, he had required 106 for his final score of 94. At 167-3 in the 39th over quick runs were required. Will Bancroft, with 14 off 16, and Ed Hopkins, 30 off 26, added 31 for the fourth wicket off 22 balls, but five wickets then went down in four overs as batsmen found various ways of getting out while trying to push the score along. Opposing skipper Rob Hill was the main beneficiary, picking up 5-49 off seven overs. A late flurry by Jon Lodwick, with 24 not out off just 13 balls, ably assisted by Levi Olver (6 not out off 6), added 30 in the last three overs to lift the score to 256-8 after their 50 overs.

Dulwich struck back quickly as Naeem Iqbal took the first wicket with the score on 13 in the sixth over. Tight bowling by Iqbal, Lodwick and Leon Sealy kept the second wicket stand down to 43 in 11.3 overs, but Joe Hill’s dismissal, for 28 with the score on 56, brought in his twin brother Rob. The skipper then masterminded stands of 53 off 10.3 overs for the third wicket, 71 off 13.1 for the fourth, and 23 off 3.2 for the fifth. He was run out by Stolle with the score on 203, having made 65 off 79 balls. 54 were still needed off six overs, but with wickets in hand Rob Waite and Amer Saleem were able to go for their shots and levelled the score off the last ball of the 49th over. The winning run came three balls later. Iqbal, Sealy, Lodwick and Olver finished with a wicket apiece.

The match was unusual for the number of sixes scored: six in the first innings and five in the second. Most of these were hit out of the ground and required a change of ball, using up most of Worcester Park’s supply of spares!

Dulwich took six bonus points from this game, and remain in sixth position. Next week they have the first of three consecutive home matches, against Farnham who were relegated last season but who now stand second in the table.

Sat 21st May – 1st XI v Bank of England

DULWICH 196-9 (50) beat BANK OF ENGLAND 193 (50) by 3 runs


After a fluctuating match, in which all three results were still possible off the last ball, Dulwich secured a narrow victory in their Travelbag Surrey Championship match against Bank of England.

The Bank won the toss and elected to field first on a green pitch, and with rain forecast. The Dulwich innings was a curious affair with large stands for the first and eighth wickets and a horrendous collapse in between. Led by a pugnacious innings from Tom Savill the openers got off to a rousing start, posting 90 on the board in just 14 overs. The entry of Richard Rawlings and Sam Ferrick to the attack brought about an abrupt reversal of fortune. Rawlings had Ed Stolle caught by Damon Ridgway in the gully for 20, Ferrick bowled Luke Cheadle, and Rawlings had Savill also caught by Ridgway in the gully for a belligerent 56, off 54 balls. Two balls later Ed Hopkins got a nasty lifter which gave Ridgway a third catch. Dulwich had gone from 90-0 to 92-4 in just 14 balls. Zakir Rostami and Naeem Iqbal dug in, but both fell to Rawlings and were soon followed by Jon Lodwick who gave Ridgway his fourth gully catch, this time off Ferrick. Dulwich had lost seven wickets for 28 runs in 15.4 overs. The two bowlers then completed their ten over spells unchanged, with Rawlings finishing with 5-16 and Ferrick 2-19. Leon Sealy joined Salaar Waqar with the score on 118-7, and they put together a stand of 66 in 17.3 overs for the eighth wicket before both were caught behind in successive overs. Sealy fell for 32 off 61 balls and Waqar also made 32, having batted obdurately for 84 balls. Levi Olver and skipper Alex Gledhill saw the innings through to the close, finishing on 196-9 off their 50 overs. The innings was bolstered by 38 extras, of which 33 were scored as wides.

Rawlings launched Bank’s reply by seemingly trying to emulate Savill, but fell to a juggling slip catch by Stolle off Iqbal, having made 14 off 18 balls. Three overs later a direct hit by Olver ran out Ridgway for a duck to reduce them to 25-2. The momentum was now taken up by Josh Andrighetto, who scored 61 of the next 95 runs. By now a light drizzle had set in which lasted for about an hour and hampered the bowlers, and particularly the spinners. Nonetheless a wicket apiece for Sealy, Gledhill and Lodwick, and two for Waqar, reduced Bank to 141-7 in the 35th over. Skipper Janil Ramesh was joined by Jack O’Brien, and they had put on 36 in 10.2 overs for the eighth wicket to lift the score to 177 when O’Brien was bowled by Olver. The ninth wicket pair had taken the score to 186 in the 48th over when Waqar took his third wicket. The final over was thus reached with the last wicket pair together. Waqar was to bowl it, with five runs wanted for victory. But last man Justin Hunt was facing, and it took him five balls to get the single needed to put his captain on strike. With four needed to win off the last ball Ramesh charged Waqar but was beaten and stumped by Hopkins for 37. Dulwich had emerged victorious by three runs, with Waqar finishing with the creditable figures of 4-25 off eight overs.

This nail-biting victory lifts Dulwich to sixth, but they are one of six teams who have all won two and lost one of their first three games and occupy positions two to seven in the table. Next week they visit Worcester Park, who are one point above them having gained one more bonus point in the match they lost.

Sat 14th May – 1st XI v Camberley

CAMBERLEY 286-4 (50) beat DULWICH 207 (48.4) by 79 runs


A target of 286 proved too much for Dulwich in their Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 match at Camberley, and they went down to defeat by 79 runs.

Camberley elected to bat, and the openers had put on 26 in seven overs when Naeem Iqbal took the first wicket. Tim Burns then joined his skipper Max Shoveller and they had added 39 for the second wicket in just 5.1 overs when Leon Sealy dismissed them both in successive balls, Burns making 23 off just 16 balls, and Shoveller 35 at a run a ball. This brought together James Day and New Zealander OP Marty Kain, who added 180 together in 33 overs for the fourth wicket. Burns fell to Alex Gledhil, having made 77 off 88 balls, with the score on 245. Kyle Philander then helped Kain add 41 in 4.3 overs for the undefeated fifth wicket, taking the score to 286-4 after their 50 overs. Kain had survived an early life to finish on 120 off 126 balls, and Philander 13 off 12. Sealy, who took 2-29 off nine overs, was the pick of the Dulwich bowlers. 

Day and Philander then opened the bowling and Day struck twice in his first four overs to make it 16-2. Will Bancroft joined Ed Stolle, and the pair added 80 in 15 overs for the third wicket. The partnership ended when Bancroft injured himself while completing a sharp single. He called for a runner, but was then out next ball. His 37 had come from 48 balls. Stolle’s dismissal for 63, made from 83 balls, sparked a mini collapse in which four wickets fell in 9.3 overs for 24 runs. Sealy joined Iqbal with the score on 147-7 after 36.4 overs, and the pair had added 32 in eight overs when Sealy fell for 8. Levi Olver then joined Iqbal and the pair lifted the score to 197 before Iqbal was out for a well made 46, off 61 balls. He had almost seen the side to a third batting point, and Olver and Gledhill completed the job, taking the score to 207. Olver fell for 10, leaving his captain undefeated for a second week.

Dulwich have thus had one win and one defeat from their first two matches, and stand 7th in the table with 23 points. Next week they have a home tie against newly promoted Bank of England, who have lost both their matches and are currently one place below them.
