sat 18th May – 1st XI v Old Rutlishians

DULWICH 147 (44.5) lost to OLD RUTLISHIANS 148-1 (35.5) by 9 wickets 


A depleted Dulwich side lacking three first choice players were thoroughly outplayed in their AJ Fordham Surrey Championship match at home to Old Rutlishians, and went down to defeat by nine wickets.


Dulwich elected to bat, and skipper Ed Stolle and first team newcomer Chris Purhouse added 24 for the first wicket in 7.4 overs before the latter was lbw. The score had reached 37 after 12 overs when the opening bowlers gave way to spin in the shape of leg spinner Ross Trimmings and off spinner Michael Jones. These two took two wickets apiece, and imposed such a stranglehold that Trimmings conceded just 16 runs off his first nine overs before uncharacteristically giving away 14 off his last, while Jones was even more economical, with just 14 runs coming off his ten. Robbie Catling provided some resistance, defending stoically before taking advantage of some loose bowling to advance his score to 40. His stand of 39 with Salaar Waqar for the fifth wicket proved to be the highest of the innings, taking the score to 110 after 35 overs. Another leg spinner, New Zealander Danny Gibbs, entered the attack and also picked up two wickets. A wicket to skipper Sonny Cooper and a run out followed as Dulwich were dismissed for a disappointing 147 in the 45th over. Stolle with 23, Waqar 20, and Jon Lodwick who finished on 20 not out were the only other batsmen to get out of the teens.


Josh Price and Dan Woods launched the reply circumspectly against tight bowling by Lodwick and Kamran Munawar. Lodwick induced edges from both of them and would have had a couple of wickets had the chances been taken. But the batsmen were able to accelerate against the change bowlers, and the Dulwich spinners were unable to impose the same restraint as their opponents. The openers had added 77 in 21.4 overs when Price edged Waqar to slip for 40. But that was the only wicket as Woods and Joe Riches added a further 71 to take their side to victory with 14 overs to spare, Woods finishing with 67 and Riches 30.


Dulwich thus failed to take a point from this defeat, and slip to 7th. Next week they visit Oxted & Limpsfield, who have lost both their matches and stand one place and three points below them in the table.


Sat 11th May – 1st XI v Chipstead, Coulsdon & Walcountians

DULWICH 206-7 (50) tied with CHIPSTEAD, COULSDON & WALCOUNTIANS 206-9 (50)


The new season in the Surrey Championship started with a new sponsor in AJ Fordham Sports, and Dulwich entered into the spirit of change by fielding six first team debutants in their Division 2 match away to Chipstead Coulsdon & Walcountians. In a thrilling finish Dulwich took two wickets in the last three balls with the scores level to secure a tie.


Dulwich were put in to bat, and skipper Ed Stolle and newcomer Alex Leyshon, aided by a succession of wides, had little trouble in adding 76 in 19 overs for the first wicket. Stolle’s dismissal, caught behind for 28, sparked a collapse in which four wickets fell for just 15 runs. Jake Dunford fell to a spectacular running diving one-handed catch by the keeper, Leyshon was lbw for 35, and Robbie Catling gave the keeper his third catch. The fourth debutant, Elliot Miles, thus joined Matt Marfani with the score on 91-4 in the 22nd over. The pair had added 61 in 17 overs for the fifth wicket when Marfani was run out for 37. Miles fell four overs later for 30 and Salaar Waqar followed for 9 to make it 170-7 in the 44th over. Kamran Munawar then hit an unbeaten 23 off 25 balls in company with the fifth newcomer Simon Harwood to lift the score to 206-7 after 50 overs. Keeper Tim Baker finished with four catches, while wides added 27 runs to the total.


Dulwich were not so generous with the wides, and Nick Woods and skipper Rob Woolley needed 17 overs to add 46 for the first wicket against tight bowling by Munawar, first team debutant Zac Brown (who was unlucky not to have Woolley caught twice in one over) and Harwood. The latter took the first wicket in his fourth over, having Woolley caught behind by Catling for 25. Slow left armer Miles had also joined the attack in a parsimonious spell that saw just nine runs come off his first five overs before he dismissed Woods for 37 in his sixth. Armaan Randhawa then went on the attack in company with Sam Chamberlain. The pair had added 63 in 12.4 overs for the third wicket before Waqar had Randhawa caught for 34 off 33 balls. Matt Foakes joined Chamberlain at 131-3 after 37.1 overs, but tight bowling by Waqar and Harwood restricted them to just 44 runs in 9.5 overs. Alex Gledhill returned to bowl the 46th over and had Foakes stumped for 19 off the last ball to make it 175-4. Chipstead thus still needed 32 to win in the last four overs.  


Waqar then took two wickets in the 47th, as Chamberlain was stumped for 52 and Mikey Armstrong picked out the long on fielder first ball. Miles, whose first spell had cost just 22 runs from eight overs, returned to bowl the 48th, which saw Baker run out off the fourth ball. Mike Bradley hit the last ball for four to take the score to 187, still needing 20 off the last two overs. But Bradley added another four and a six as 14 runs came off Waqar in the 49th over, to leave just six needed off Miles in the 50th. A single came from the first ball and an awkward delivery that eluded both batsman and keeper went for four byes off the third to level the scores. Bradley was then bowled by the fourth. The new batsman was unable to score off the fifth, leaving him having to score a single off the last ball to win the match. But he could only hit the ball back towards the bowler, who then won the race to get to the far end first, secure the run out, and tie the match.


Both sides take ten points from a match that they will both feel they should have won. Next week Dulwich have their first home match of the season when they entertain Old Rutlishians, who are back in Division 2 after dominating the third division last year.




Sat 15th Sept – 1st XI v Cross Arrows

CROSS ARROWS 313-9 (50) lost to DULWICH 314-9 (49.5) by 1 wicket


Fresh from winning four of their last five league games, Dulwich travelled to the Mecca of Cricket to play the Cross Arrows on the nursery ground at Lord’s. Dulwich faced a daunting total of 313, but a remarkable unbeaten partnership of 87 for the last wicket saw them secure a famous victory by one wicket off the penultimate ball.


The home side had first use of a good batting pitch with a short boundary on one side. The openers had put 50 on the board in nine overs against Jon Lodwick and Kamran Munawar when skipper James Overy fell to a good running catch on the boundary by Patrick George. George soon joined the attack and he and Sunil Isaac put a brake on the scoring, with George taking 2-19 off seven overs and Isaac 1-30 off eight to reduce Cross Arrows to 137-4 after 27.3 overs. George gave way to 14 year old leg spinner Ahmed Khan who produced a mixture of loose and challenging deliveries, and was unlucky not to take a wicket. Salaar Waqar came on at the other end and struck in his first over when Kira Chathli held on to a blinder at mid off, her second catch of the innings. Three more wickets for Waqar saw the score decline to 228-8 in the 42nd over. But this brought in left hander Clint McCabe, who peppered the short leg side boundary. He was particularly severe on George, who came back at the wrong end to concede 39 off two overs. McCabe fell to Sam Ellison in the 49th over with the score on 304, having made 59 off just 30 balls. The last pair lifted the score to 313-9, with number four bat Phil Wise remaining unbeaten with 87, having faced 100 balls. Waqar, with 4-44, was the most successful bowler.


Khan then opened the batting with Matt Balch, and made the early running before falling to Luke Sharp for 24 with the score on 42 in the 11th over. Skipper Ed Stolle was lbw in Sharp’s next over. Tight bowling kept Balch and Chathli down to 24 runs in eight overs before Chathli was bowled for 10. At 72-3 after 21 overs Dulwich were well behind the rate, but Waqar changed that with a commanding innings of 69 off just 35 balls. He added exactly 100 for the fourth wicket with Balch in 11.4 overs before being caught on the boundary off McCabe. Balch fell one run later, having held the innings together with a patient 54 off 99 balls. Ellison, who had earlier retired with blurred vision after just one ball, recovered to smash 37 off 20 balls in a stand of 46 in five overs for the sixth wicket with Assan Crawford-Khan. Ellison’s dismissal to McCabe in the 39th over was followed by the run out of Crawford-Khan in the 40th and the wickets of both Munawar and George to McCabe in the 41st. Dulwich had lost four wickets for eight runs as they declined to 227-9 after 41 overs.


With 87 runs needed off nine overs the match seemed as good as over. But Lodwick, who had amassed just four singles at this point, now treated McCabe with due respect while launching an assault at the other end, taking full advantage of the short off side boundary. He was given vital support by Isaac, who gave him the strike when he could and defended resolutely when he had to. Sharp, who had taken 2-26 in his first seven overs, was recalled to try and finish it off but was hit for 35 in three overs. Dominic Evans conceded 15 off the 48th to leave 20 required off the last two. But McCabe gave away just four runs off the 49th to leave 16 needed off Evans in the final over. Isaac took a single off the first ball, Lodwick hit the next two for six, and followed up with a two and a single to reach the target with one ball to spare. He had scored 78 out of the last wicket stand of 87, and finished with 82 not out off just 40 balls, with six fours and seven sixes.


This remarkable victory capped a magical day. The match was originally scheduled for last season as part of the club’s 150th anniversary celebrations, but was scuppered by the weather. Dulwich are grateful to their hosts for rearranging it for this season. It will have left a lasting memory for the players and officials, and the increasingly vociferous supporters who came along to watch it.



Sat 1st Sept – 1st XI v Malden Wanderers

DULWICH 205 (49.1) beat MALDEN WANDERERS 135 (39.2) by 70 runs




Dulwich finished their season in Division 2 of the Travelbag Surrey Championship in fine style by beating second placed Malden Wanderers by 70 runs.


Dulwich chose to bat, and the Eds Stolle and Towner put memories of the debacle in the first match between the sides behind them as they cruised past that meagre total of 42 in the twelfth over. The pair had added 51 in 13.4 overs when skipper Stolle was the first to go, having led the way with 35 off 49 balls. His dismissal sparked a collapse as five wickets fell in ten overs for 32 runs, three of them to off spinner Will Clapp who bowled his ten overs straight through for just 18 runs.


Jon Lodwick thus joined Arun Ayyavooraju with the score on 83-5 after 23.4 overs. They stayed together for 22 overs, during which they added 107 for the sixth wicket. Ayyavooraju defended resolutely until Clapp had completed his spell, but then advanced to his maiden fifty for the first team before falling for 58, scored off 92 balls. Lodwick reached his own half century but was out two balls later. He faced 57 balls in making his best score of the season. The opening bowlers then wrapped up the tail as the last five wickets went down for just 15 runs. The innings ended on the first ball of the 50th over as Dulwich were dismissed for 205.


Lodwick then removed both openers in his first six overs in a spell of eight overs for 21 runs. He gave way to Salaar Waqar, who took a wicket with his first ball and another three balls later to make it 57-4. Two wickets for Patrick George made it 77-6 in the 24th over. Pete Young and Joe Lavender then added 44 in 10.3 overs for the seventh wicket until a direct hit by Kamran Munawar ran out Lavender, and Munawar followed up with the next wicket in his next over. Two wickets in three balls by Alex Gledhill finished off the innings as Malden were all out for 135 in the 40th over. The last four wickets had gone down for just 14 runs, with Young the last man out for the top score of 34. The wickets were thus shared equally between the five bowlers. Four of them took two, while Munawar had one plus a run out.


Dulwich have thus won four out of their last five matches, and have risen four places in that time to finish sixth. Four players have made their maiden fifties for the first team in the last three matches, which promises well for the future. Dulwich will be aiming to take this improved form into next season.





Sat 25 Aug – 1st XI v Old Whitgiftians

DULWICH 237-8 (50) beat OLD WHITGIFTIANS 106 (35.3) by 131 runs




Dulwich ensured their survival in Division 2 of the Travelbag Surrey Championship with an emphatic victory by 131 runs against relegation rivals Old Whitgiftians.


Dulwich opted to bat first, and Nick Hudson and Ed Towner took the score to 22 in the fifth over, assisted by an assortment of wides and no balls, whereupon both were dismissed in successive overs. Sam Ellison and Salaar Waqar then came together in a stand of 63 in 11.2 overs for the third wicket. Waqar was the first to go, having made 15 off 30 balls. He was followed two overs later by Ellison, who had continued in the same vein as last week and looked on course for a second consecutive fifty before running himself out for 37, off 49 balls. Nick Gunning settled in, but lost Arun Ayyavooraju and Kamran Munawar as the score advanced to 128-6 after 27 overs.


With memories of previous Dulwich collapses in mind there was a danger that they might fail to use up the overs. Acting skipper Jon Lodwick had other ideas, defending staunchly and scoring mainly in singles, while Gunning advanced to a maiden half century off 54 balls in just his second innings for the first team. The pair had added 65 in 15 overs for the seventh wicket when Gunning was caught behind for 64, scored off 80 balls. At 193-7 after 42 overs the stage was set for Will Bancroft to hit an unbeaten 26 from 30 balls, enjoying stands of 24 with Lodwick, who perished for 28 as he tried to push the score along, and an unbeaten 20 with Alex Gledhill. The Dulwich innings closed on 237-8 after 50 overs. Each of the six bowlers took a wicket, but Shaz Rana, who bowled his ten overs straight through to take 2-30, was the only one to take more than one. The bowlers contributed 26 wide balls, which increased to 34 runs scored as wides, in a total of 42 extras.


Syed Fawad and Harshil Shah launched the reply with 15 runs off the first three overs, but the rate slowed as Lodwick and Munawar stepped up the pressure. Only ten runs had come from the next five overs when Shah was bowled by Munawar off the last ball of the eighth. Lodwick picked up the crucial wicket of Fawad three overs later when he played on for 20, and struck again in his next over to make it 35-3 off 13. An amusing interlude then ensued as Arun Ramamurthy repeatedly forgot that he was batting with a runner. The opening bowlers came off after eight overs apiece, with Lodwick taking 2-20 and Munawar 1-22, to be succeeded by Patrick George and Ellison. Rana and Ramamurthy had added 16 in six overs when the latter fell to a sharp catch by Lodwick in George’s second over. The spinner then bowled the home skipper Adam Clarke in his third. Ellison followed this up with a wicket in each of his third and fourth overs. Old Whits had lost four wickets in 5.4 overs as they declined from 51-3 to 63-7.


Rana had survived the collapse, and opening bowler Ishan Kalra now joined him in putting on 27 for the eighth wicket, the highest stand of the innings. George and Ellison came off after bowling six overs apiece with figures of 2-14 and 2-17 respectively. But this afforded no respite for the batsmen as they were replaced by Waqar and Gledhill. Waqar unusually went wicketless in bowling four overs for 14 runs, but Gledhill finished off the innings by taking the last three wickets in successive overs to finish with 3-17 off 3.3. Rana was the last man out having played a lone hand in making 34 off 54 balls. Old Whits were all out for 106 leaving 14.3 overs of their allocation unused.


Dulwich have thus won three of their last four matches, rising from tenth to seventh in the process and escaping the spectre of relegation. Their final game next Saturday is at home to Malden Wanderers, who are second in the table having secured their promotion with a vital win against Dorking. Dulwich will be looking to maintain their recent form and gain revenge for their heavy defeat against these opponents earlier in the season.
