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.

Sat 29th July – 1st XI v Epsom

DULWICH 192-9 (55) v EPSOM – Match abandoned


Dulwich staged a remarkable recovery in their Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 match at Epsom, but it proved to be in vain as the weather had the final say.

Epsom put their opponents in under overcast skies and with the threat of heavy rain to come. Fourteen runs off the first three overs proved to be a false dawn as the bowling tightened and scoring became ever more difficult. The first three wickets fell within the space of ten balls, and they continued to fall at regular intervals until the seventh wicket went down with the score on 61, coincidentally the same score on which the seventh South African wicket had fallen in the Test Match on the previous day. Jon Lodwick now adopted the role played by Temba Bavuma in the Test, dominating a stand of 26 in 4.5 overs with skipper Alex Gledhill, who made a resolute 3 off 19 balls. At 87-8 after 37 overs Lodwick was joined by Kamran Munawar, who played himself in carefully, scoring just two runs off his first 16 balls, before going on the attack. The pair had added 81 in 16.4 overs when Munawar fell in the penultimate over with the score on 168. Lodwick then scored 24 off the last eight balls of the innings, including 19 off the last over, to take his side to 192-9 after their 55 overs. Lodwick finished unbeaten with 81 off 86 balls, while Munawar’s 41 had come off 60 balls. Both batsmen had recorded their top scores for the first team.

But the rain was already falling as the players left the field, and despite a couple of brief interludes it never relented long enough for the match to resume. It was therefore abandoned, with both sides taking four points.

This was the second week in succession that all the matches in Division 2 have been rained off. It was particularly galling for Dulwich as they were playing the two teams immediately above them in the table, and victory in either match could have lifted them out of the relegation zone. They thus remain in ninth place, with only five matches remaining. Next week the format reverts to 50 overs a side, as Dulwich travel to Worcester Park who are currently third in the table.

Sat 15th July – 1st XI v Esher

DULWICH 249-9 (50) beat ESHER 102 (38.2) by 147 runs


A fine all-round performance by Salaar Waqar, who hit 69 and took five wickets, led Dulwich to a stunning victory by the emphatic margin of 147 runs over table leaders Esher in Division 2 of the Travelbag Surrey Championship.

Dulwich were put in to bat, but got off to a rousing start as Nick Hudson dominated both the strike and the scoring to score 25 out of an opening stand of 35 in nine overs with Matt Balch. He then scored a further 22 in a second wicket stand of 24 in three overs with Henry Hazlewood. Both fell in successive balls with the score on 59, with Hudson having made 47 of those runs off 48 balls. Assan Crawford-Khan fell 16 runs later, to bring in Waqar to join Kristian Williman. The pair had taken the score to 107-4 off 22 overs when a heavy shower drove the players from the field. Ten overs were lost, thereby reducing the Dulwich innings to a maximum of 50.

After the resumption the pair took their partnership to 68 off 20 overs when Williman was caught behind for 32 with the score on 143. This brought in keeper Will Bancroft, who went on the attack, scoring 41 off 34 balls in a stand of 67 in nine overs for the sixth wicket to take the total to 210 after 44.2 overs. Waqar fell two overs later, having faced 91 balls for his 69. This was his fourth half century of the season, and his second against these opponents. Skipper Alex Gledhill and Kamran Munawar then added 36 for the eighth wicket before Gledhill became the fifth victim for keeper Alex Martin in the final over. Matt Quaife was run out off the penultimate ball, and the innings closed on 249-9 after 50 overs. Esher had 40 overs to try and score the runs, or at least reach 200 for the winning draw.

The bowling was opened by second team captain James Bridgland, making a rare first team appearance, and he got off to an ideal start when he removed the visiting skipper with the second ball of the innings. He dismissed the other opener with the last ball of his third over, and Munawar followed up three balls later by bowling the dangerous Martin, who had made a century in the first match between the sides. The fourth wicket pair came together with the score on 27, and had added 31 when Waqar, having conceded two fours off his first four balls, dismissed prolific overseas player Shoaib Khan with his fifth. This initiated a collapse in which six wickets fell for 35 runs in 14 overs, with three more to Waqar and two to Quaife.

The last wicket pair thus came together with the score on 93 and 12.2 overs of the innings remaining. Gledhill used four different bowlers to try and break the stand, but the pair resisted for ten overs as number 8 Ben Collins took a single off the last ball of four consecutive overs to keep last man Tom Brown away from the strike. A maiden by the skipper in the 38th over left Brown facing the 39th. Waqar was recalled, and he bowled Brown with his second ball to dismiss Esher for 102. Waqar rounded off an inspired performance with 5-23 off 11.2 overs.

Dulwich have thus lost to the bottom side and beaten the top side in successive weeks. Unfortunately the three sides above them in the table all also won this week, so Dulwich remain in ninth place. They are five points behind Epsom and 14 behind seventh placed Dorking, who are their visitors next week in the return match between the sides. Dulwich won the first match, and would overtake their opponents if they can repeat the feat next week.

Sat 8th July – 1st XI v Bank of England

BANK OF ENGLAND 239-9 (55) beat DULWICH 134 (37.4) by 105 runs


A depleted Dulwich side failed to build on a good start in their Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 match at Bank of England, going down to defeat by 105 runs.

Dulwich gave their opponents first use of a good batting pitch, and got off to a good start as Leon Sealy and Jon Lodwick each took an early wicket to reduce Bank to 25-2 after 8.1 overs. The third wicket pair added 32 before both fell in the space of three balls trying extravagant shots. This gave a first wicket to Levi Olver, in his first over, and a second to Sealy, who completed an impressive first spell with 2-29 off nine overs. Janil Ramesh and Sam Brandon then defended resolutely as Brandon sought to recover from a knock on the hand. They added just twelve runs in the next eleven overs to reach the drinks break at 69-4 off 26 overs, with Dulwich seemingly well on top.

This all changed after the resumption as the pair went on the attack, and added a further 104 in 19.1 overs before Ramesh was caught behind by Will Bancroft off Olver. Having scored just five runs off his first 39 balls, he hit 38 off the next 49 to finish with 43 off 88. Brandon fell the same way 21 runs later for 80, having scored just four runs off his first 29 balls, and 76 at a run a ball for the rest of his innings. Sam Hawley, with 20 off 22 balls, and Nikul Ramesh, 15 off 15, then added 27 for the seventh wicket before both fell to Salaar Waqar in the penultimate over. Skipper Alex Gledhill picked up the ninth wicket in the last over as Bank closed on 239-9 after 55 overs. Olver finished with a creditable 3-33 off 14 overs, but none of the other bowlers were able to stem the flow of runs as 170 came off the final 29 overs of the innings.

The Dulwich reply got off to a disastrous start when Nick Hudson was caught behind off Jack O’Brien in the first over. Lodwick, in the unusual role of opening bat, fell the same way for 17 with the score on 27, and Henry Hazlewood was brilliantly caught by Brandon at second slip for 16 nine runs later. O’Brien took his fourth wicket when Assan Crawford-Khan was lbw for 4 with the score on 45. Waqar and Bancroft took the score to 65 in the 16th over when Bancroft was lbw to Nikul Ramesh for 4, and Waqar was caught behind in the next over for 13 to give Hawley his third catch and O’Brien his fifth wicket. The opener had bowled a curious mixture of wayward and challenging deliveries that had left the Dulwich innings in ruins, and was rested with figures of 5-29 after ten overs.

Kim Winder replaced him, and removed Euan Johnson, who had defended resolutely for 25 balls for a single, in his second over. He didn’t take any more wickets, but conceded just 13 runs off his nine overs. Sealy and Olver found runs easier to come by at the other end and added 27 in seven overs for the eighth wicket, the highest stand of the innings. Sealy was the next to go, having top scored with 24, off 32 balls. Olver and Gledhill added a further 17 before Olver fell for 21 off 30. At 127-9 the last pair still had to hold out for 11.3 overs to avoid defeat, but had lasted just four when O’Brien was recalled. Four balls were all he needed to take his sixth wicket and secure victory for his side. Dulwich had succumbed for 134 in just 37.4 overs.

Dulwich gained just three points from a disappointing match and slip back to ninth place as Epsom gained nine points from a winning draw against Malden Wanderers. Next week Dulwich have a difficult match at home to runaway leaders Esher.
