Sat 2nd June – 1st XI v Kingstonian

DULWICH (135 all out) beat KINGSTONIAN (101 all out) by 34 runs.


Chasing Dulwich’s meagre total of 135, the home side collapsed from 100-5 to 101 all out as left-arm spinner Pat George took four of the last five wickets to fall without conceding a run.

Kingstonian won the toss and inserted Dulwich on a bowler-friendly wicket at Windsor Avenue. The move reaped an early dividend when visiting skipper Ed Stolle was dismissed by Shan for a duck. Fellow opener Guy Skinner was then caught behind off Aziz for 13, reducing Dulwich to 16-2 inside seven overs. Three of this season’s newcomers, George Pearson (24), Jonno Evans (18) and Matt Marfani (22), then steadied the innings but after reaching 112-5 the tail offered only token resistance and Dulwich were dismissed for 135 after 46.4 overs. H. Ahmed was Kingstonian’s most successful bowler, taking 4-21 off 12 overs.

Kingstonian’s innings also got off to a bad start when in the very first over Imran Khalid was caught behind by Evans off Kamran Munawar. Second wicket pair Haroon Ashfaq and Raza Sikandar immediately went on the attack and a flurry of boundaries took the score past the forty mark before pace bowler Assan Crawford-Khan removed them both, two more victims for wicket-keeper Evans. Number four bat A. Ahmed righted the ship and his knock of 31, the highest score of the match, guided Kingstonian’s to 100-5 and within sight of victory. But Ahmed’s dismissal, caught at square leg off Pat George, triggered an almighty collapse and the home side were all out for 101 in the 37th over. Pat George finished with figures of 4-10 off 5.5 overs, whilst fellow slow left-armer Alex Gledhill returned 2-23 from 14 overs and Crawford-Khan 2-12 from 7 overs.

Having got off the mark, Dulwich will be looking for further victories in the coming weeks to climb further up the table, but they face a tough task this Saturday (9th June) when they entertain second-placed Walton-on-Thames at Burbage Road (start 12.00 noon).
