Sat 19th May – 1st XI v Oxted & Limpsfield

DULWICH 212 (49.5) lost to OXTED & LIMPSFIELD 214-1 (43.1) by 9 wickets

 

Dulwich started their first home match of the season in Division 2 of the Travelbag Surrey Championship by scoring 212 against Oxted & Limpsfield, but were left watching in frustration as their opponents cruised to victory by nine wickets with almost seven overs to spare.

 

Dulwich chose to bat, and skipper Ed Stolle led the way. He enjoyed stands of 37 for the first wicket with Kristian Williman, who made 19, and 28 for the second with Nick Hudson, who made 12. This brought in newcomer Matt Marfani for his first team debut, and together the pair added 77 for the third wicket to take the score to 142-2 after 36 overs. Marfani fell to a smart return catch by Ned Lack for 32, and Stolle was stumped off a wide in Lack’s next over, having made 63. Wickets then tumbled steadily, punctuated by some lusty blows by Salaar Waqar, Jon Lodwick and Phil McCormack. The last eight wickets went down for 70 runs to see Dulwich dismissed for 212 off the penultimate ball of their fifty overs.

 

Dulwich struck back immediately when Lodwick had Mike Adamson caught at gully off the second ball of the innings. But that proved to be the only wicket to fall as skipper Simon Jackson and Jack Lloyd, who had added 166 together in the first game between the sides last season, proceeded to knock off the runs. Lloyd led the way at first, but his captain caught him up in the thirties and reached his fifty first. Six bowlers were tried but were unable to break through as the two batsmen moved neck and neck into the nineties. Jackson reached his century first, to leave Lloyd facing the next over needing three for his hundred with three wanted for victory. The first ball went for four byes to end the match and leave Lloyd stranded on 97.

 

Dulwich took just three batting points from this game, and find themselves ninth in the table having suffered two defeats and one abandoned match in their first three games. They are level on points with Bank of England, who happen to be next week’s visitors. Dulwich will be looking to avenge their defeats of last season by these opponents.
