Sat 24th June – 1st XI v Oxted & Limpsfield

OXTED & LIMPSFIELD 206-9 (51) drew with DULWICH 201-8 (49)


Dulwich twice recovered from unpromising positions to achieve a winning draw off the last ball in their Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 match at home to Oxted & Limpsfield.

Dulwich put their opponents in to bat, and Leon Sealy and Matt Wright kept Stuart Fletcher under a tight rein while skipper Simon Jackson scored more freely at the other end. Fletcher had scored just eight runs off 34 balls when he was dropped off a straightforward catch to mid off, which would have given Wright a wicket on debut. This reprieve led him to up the tempo, and the pair had added 83 off 17.1 overs when Kamran Munawar bowled Fletcher for 34, off 63 balls. Munawar and skipper Alex Gledhill then imposed such restraint that only 20 runs came off the next ten overs for the loss of three more wickets. In that time the next three batsmen faced 49 balls between them for 13 runs, starving their captain of the strike to such an extent that he faced just 11 balls in that time, off which he scored six. He never fully regained his earlier fluency, but added 38 for the fifth wicket with Ross Powell, who was bowled by Salaar Waqar for 20, and 13 for the sixth with Isaac Miller.

Sealy returned to have Jackson caught behind for 71 (off 82 balls), the same score that he had made in the first match between the sides. Veteran Gordon Boxshall joined Miller with the score on 154-6 after 40.1 overs, but tight bowling and judicious field placing kept them to 11 runs off 5.4 overs before Miller was run out for 14 off 35 balls. Ned Lack came in with orders to hit out, and obliged with 20 off 15 balls before being bowled by Waqar. Munawar returned to take the ninth wicket, but Boxshall then hit 13 off the next four balls to set up the declaration on 206-9 after 51 overs. Munawar finished with 3-39 off 9 overs, Gledhill 2-48 off 13 and Waqar 2-32 off 10, while keeper Will Bancroft picked up three catches.

Dulwich were left with 49 overs to get the runs, but got off to a turgid start against accurate bowling. Only 13 runs came off the first 13 overs for the loss of three wickets, with Ed Stolle, Kristian Williman and Matt Balch facing 66 balls between them for just ten runs. Nick Hudson was the first batsman to inject some life into the proceedings, making 35 off 27 balls and dominating a fourth wicket partnership of 45 in 6.5 overs with Henry Hazlewood. His dismissal was followed by Hazlewood in the next over for 11, and Bancroft fell four overs later having scored just a single.

At 74-6 after 25 overs an assault on the victory target, or even 198 for the winning draw, seemed unlikely, but Waqar and Sealy had other ideas. Waqar had already reached 15 at a run a ball, and Sealy played himself in carefully, scoring just two off his first 12 balls, before declaring his intent with the first of four huge sixes. The partnership reached 50 after ten overs and 100 after 20, by which time they had whittled the target down to 33 for victory or 24 for the winning draw off the last four overs. They had taken their partnership to 109 in 21.3 overs when Jackson had Sealy caught on the boundary for 46, made off 60 balls. Waqar was bowled in the next over for 79, his second half century of the season, having faced 87 balls. They had both recorded their highest scores for Dulwich.

Munawar and Gledhill thus found themselves together at 191-8 with 16 needed for victory off the last over, or more realistically seven for the winning draw. As tension mounted six runs came off the first five balls, leaving Munawar to face the last ball. With the field brought in to save the single, he drove through them for four to reach 201 and claim an extra batting point along with the winning draw.

Dulwich thus gained ten points from the match, against seven for their opponents. They remain in ninth place, but are now just one point behind Epsom. Next week they have their third successive home game when they welcome Old Rutlishians, who are currently fourth in the table.


Sat 17th June – 1st XI v Malden Wanderers

DULWICH 120 (47.2) lost to MALDEN WANDERERS 122-1 (33) by 9 wickets


A top order collapse saw Dulwich dismissed for 120 to go down to a nine wicket defeat in their Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 match at home to Malden Wanderers.

The visitors won the toss and chose to field. They got an early reward when Tom Savill was adjudged lbw to Joe Lavender in the second over, the first time this season that he has been dismissed for less than 50 in the Championship. His partner Ed Stolle was bowled by Will Sabey in the next over. Sabey followed this up by having Richard King caught behind and Kristian Williman taken by a juggling catch in the slips in his next two overs, to leave Dulwich reeling on 17-4 after seven overs. Henry Hazlewood then dug in while Nick Hudson played more aggressively at the other end. The pair had added 30 off 7.2 overs when Hudson also went lbw, for 17 off 23 balls. Will Bancroft joined Hazlewood, and the pair had added 16 off seven overs when the latter’s resolute innings ended for 23, off 57 balls, with the score on 63. Salaar Waqar then joined Bancroft in the best stand of the innings. The pair had added 34 for the seventh wicket off 13 overs when both fell in successive overs, Waqar caught at mid on off Sabey for 20, off 39 balls, and Bancroft caught at slip for 21, off 57. Jon Lodwick, who also faced 39 balls, then led a late rearguard before he was last out, stumped for 14. Dulwich were dismissed for 120 in 47.2 overs, with Sabey finishing on 4-26 off ten overs.

This looked to be an inadequate score on a good batting wicket, and soon proved to be so as Aussie OP Jacob Wilson and Harri Aravinthan survived some early edges off Lodwick and Savill to post 50 on the board after 13.1 overs. Wilson led the way, cruising to 50 off 73 balls while his partner gave solid support at the other end. Skipper Alex Gledhill imposed some restraint, bowling nine overs for 18 runs, but the 100 was reached without loss in the 30th over. Waqar picked up a consolation wicket, having Aravinthan stumped by Bancroft for 32 (off 95 balls) with the score on 103. But there was to be no further reward as Wilson took 14 off Lodwick’s next over to finish with 83 off 102 balls and see his side to a nine wicket victory after just 33 overs.

Dulwich therefore finished this match without a point and remain in ninth place. Next week they welcome second placed Oxted & Limpsfield, and will be looking to avenge their defeat in the first fixture between the sides.

Sat 3rd June – 1st XI v Worcester Park

WORCESTER PARK 174 (49.4) drew with DULWICH 146-9 (50)


Dulwich failed to chase down a target of 174 in their Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 match against Worcester Park, and had to settle for a losing draw.

Dulwich chose to field on winning the toss, and opened the bowling with Jon Lodwick and Tom Savill, who was having his first bowl of the season. Lodwick was first to strike in his fourth over with the score on 15, while Savill bowled an accurate spell of nine overs which conceded just 19 runs. Lodwick gave way to Sam Ellison, who took a wicket in each of his first two overs to reduce Worcester Park to 46-3 in the fifteenth over. Levi Olver also struck in his second over to take the fourth wicket with the score on 66. This brought together identical twins Joe and Rob Hill, who added 32 in 9.2 overs for the fifth wicket until Joe was caught behind for 32 off skipper Alex Gledhill. Skipper Rob was now joined by Waqas Sagar, brother of former Kent and Surrey all-rounder Azhar Mahmood. Sagar dominated a stand of 71 in 14.2 overs for the sixth wicket, scoring 48 off 47 balls before being caught behind off Olver with the score on 169. Mike Arundell fell in the same manner first ball, giving Olver two wickets in his last permitted over for the second week running. Gledhill and Richard King then mopped up the tail, with Rob Hill last man out for 37. Keeper Will Bancroft picked up his fourth catch, while Olver finished with 3-51 off his 14 overs and Gledhill 3-25 off 7.4. The last five wickets had fallen for five runs in 4.4 overs as Worcester Park were dismissed for 174 in the 50th over.

Dulwich thus had 50 overs to get the runs. This was the first Championship match this season in which Savill and his regular opening partner Ed Stolle had played together, and they launched the Dulwich reply in familiar fashion, adding 34 in 7.5 overs before Stolle was caught off Joe Hill for 13. Kristian Williman went in the next over and King one over later to reduce them to 42-3. Savill was joined by Guy Skinner, and both survived some near misses as they found scoring increasingly difficult against accurate bowling. Savill reached his third consecutive fifty but required 74 balls, six more than he had needed to reach his century in the previous match. The stand had reached 63 in 24.1 overs when Savill fell for 58 (off 87 balls) with the score on 105. Skinner went 11 runs later, having grafted resolutely for 30 off 97 balls, and Bancroft followed two runs later to make it 118-6 after 38.3 overs. Lodwick and Ed Hopkins continued to go for the runs and had added 22 in five overs before Hopkins, Ellison and Lodwick all fell in successive overs for just two runs. Dulwich had lost six wickets for 37, and at 142-9 after 45.2 overs Olver and Gledhill now had no alternative but to bat out time, which they did successfully to secure a losing draw.

Dulwich thus ended a disappointing match with just five points and slip two places to seventh. Next week they travel to Chessington, where they have enjoyed a number of close finishes in recent years. Their opponents are just one place below them in the table.








Sat 27th May – 1st XI v Dorking

DORKING 262 (48.4) lost to DULWICH 265-4 (41) by 6 wickets


A sparkling century by Tom Savill enabled Dulwich to chase down a daunting target of 262 with ease in their Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 clash at Dorking.

The home side chose to take first use of a good batting track with a lightning fast outfield, but Leon Sealy produced a testing opening spell and picked up the first wicket in his third over. With Jon Lodwick feeling unwell and lacking his usual aggression, Sam Ellison replaced him after three overs and dismissed the other opener with his eighth ball without having conceded a run. Jason Swift then joined Cameron Pitt, and together they put on 65 for the third wicket, taking the score to 99 in the 21st over when Levi Olver, in his first game of the season, dismissed Pitt for 33. This was to be the last wicket for 19 overs as Tim Johnson joined Swift in a stand of 116 for the fourth wicket. At 215-3 after 39 overs Dorking seemed well set for a total in excess of 300, but Swift’s dismissal to Ellison for 104 brought about a collapse in which five wickets fell for 29 runs. Ellison also dismissed Johnson for 64 to finish with 3-50 off his ten overs, while the other three fell to Olver with his last ten balls to give him figures of 4-51. The ninth wicket pair added 18 before skipper Alex Gledhill took the last two wickets in four balls to dismiss Dorking for 262 in the 49th over, the last seven wickets having gone down in 9.1 overs for 47 runs.

Savill and Kristian Williman launched the Dulwich reply, with the side facing a target of over 260 for the second week running. But this time there was to be no collapse as Savill ripped into some loose bowling while his partner gave him sensible support at the other end. The innings started in bizarre fashion as three wides in the first five balls saw nine runs on the board before either batsman had scored, and the bowlers continued to gift a succession of wides throughout the innings. The score reached 50 in just 5.4 overs and 100 in 13.2. The stand was finally ended at 141 off the last ball of the 20th over, with Williman falling for 24 while Savill had already reached 89. He managed to avoid 94 (on which score he was dismissed twice last year) by going from 90 to 96 with a single shot, and progressed to his first hundred for the club soon afterwards, off just 68 balls.

Savill had been joined by Guy Skinner, who contributed 19 (off 27 balls) to a stand of 53 in 9.4 overs for the second wicket. Skinner’s dismissal was quickly followed by Ed Hopkins, but Savill continued in imperious fashion in company with Salaar Waqar, until being caught behind with the score on 218. His 135 had come from just 106 balls, and included 20 fours and two sixes. Keeper Will Bancroft joined Waqar and carried on where Savill had left off, racing to 37 at a run a ball and seeing his side to a six wicket victory with nine overs to spare. The number of wides bowled had reached 27, with all eight bowlers bowling at least one. With several of them eluding the keeper, wides contributed 37 runs to an extras total of 43, in sharp contrast to just nine extras in the first innings.

The limited overs games thus finish with Dulwich in fifth place after recording two wins and two defeats. After three successive away matches they return home next week for the first time game, against Worcester Park, who have won three of their four matches and are currently third.


Sat 20th May – 1st XI v Esher

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


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.
