Sat 28th May – 2nd XI v Wimbledon
Dulwich travelled to Wimbledon for the fourth game of the league season, with both teams having earned 3 wins from their first 3 games.
Skipper Reid continued his 0% toss success rate and Wimbledon invited Dulwich to bat first. The Wimbledon bowlers bowled well throughout the innings and despite many of the batsmen getting starts, nobody was able to push on and impose themselves on the opposition’s bowlers after securing a solid grounding to the innings.
Gaz Cornick played nicely to push the run-rate up and Reid once again showed his value lower down the order with a typically feisty, determined, if not fluent, knock. With the help of 7 off the last ball of the innings courtesy of a wayward shy at the stumps hitting the keeper’s redundant helmet, Dulwich were able to post 202 for 8 from their 50 overs.
In response, Bobby once again bowled a superb opening spell and claimed an early wicket. That was pretty much it for the Dulwich bowlers as Wimbledon’s number 3, McNeilage scored an aggressive century with 11 4s and 5 6s to take Wimbledon to a comprehensive victory by 9 wickets.
A humbling bump back to earth for the Dulwich 2nd XI on a day when they came second best.
