Sat 13th May – 1st XI v Oxted & Limpsfield

DULWICH 195 (50) lost to OXTED & LIMPSFIELD 198-2 (41.1) by 8 wickets


Dulwich travelled to Oxted & Limpsfield for their first game at the ground for many years, but lost their Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 match by 8 wickets.

With all four of last week’s first four batsmen missing, Dulwich had a new look top order as they were put in to bat on a damp pitch. Tom Savill returned after missing last week’s match, and he and Oliver Steward withstood the opening attack to put on 30 together in 10.2 overs before Steward fell for a resolute 5, off 34 balls. This brought in Kristian Williman for his first Championship match, and he and Savill both scored freely in adding 84 for the second wicket in 15.3 overs. Williman had reached 39 off 49 balls when he ran himself out going for a third run off a wide, thereby causing consternation for the home scorer whose computer app didn’t seem to be programmed for such an event! Savill followed two overs later, adjudged lbw for 56, having faced 75 balls.

Guy Skinner and Will Bancroft were more circumspect in their approach, adding 25 in 7.3 overs for the fourth wicket. Bancroft’s dismissal then sparked a middle order collapse in which four wickets fell for 11 runs in 5.1 overs. Salaar Waqar and 18 year old Sam Ellison thus came together with the score on 151-7 and ten overs still to bat. The pair added 40 together, with Ellison confirming his promise by making 24 off 33 balls before being caught off the second ball of the last over. Waqar was run out two balls later for 18 and skipper Alex Gledhill was also run out going for an ambitious second run off the last ball. Three wickets had thus fallen in the last over to see Dulwich dismissed for 195, having lost their last nine wickets for 81 runs. This was certainly a disappointing total after being 114-1 in the 26th over, but could also be seen as a good recovery from 151-7.

Dulwich got off to a good start in the field when Jon Lodwick had Stuart Fletcher lbw off the last ball of his second over, but this was to be the last wicket for 35 overs as the second wicket pair added 166. Skipper Simon Jackson showed his class with a cultured 71 off 103 balls before being bowled by Waqar. At the other end Jack Lloyd seemed more vulnerable, with several mishits that just evaded the fielders. But he didn’t give a genuine chance until the match was as good as won, and saw his side home with an undefeated 96 off 123 balls. Lodwick and Waqar both bowled their full ten over entitlement to finish with 1-30 and 1-44 respectively, but only Ellison of the other bowlers was able to summon the necessary control.

Dulwich thus 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 old rivals Esher.
