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

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

Scorecard

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.
