Sat 16th June – 1st XI v Sanderstead

DULWICH 191 (48.3) lost to SANDERSTEAD 195-8 (50.2) by 2 wickets




In another tense finish Dulwich narrowly failed to defend a total of 191 in their Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 match at Sanderstead, and went down to defeat by two wickets in the final over.


Dulwich chose to bat first, and faced a rapid but wayward opening attack, with the result that 48 runs came off the first nine overs, but for the loss of three wickets. Matt Marfani and Salaar Waqar steadied the ship as the scoring rate slowed against the change bowlers. The pair had added 49 in 15.3 overs when Waqar was unlucky to be bowled for 13 when the ball rolled onto the stumps. Marfani went three overs later having made 58 off 82 balls, his first half-century for the club, with the score on 113. A spirited knock of 23 in 35 balls by Ed Hopkins, in company with George Pearson, then lifted the score to 145-6 after 34 overs. It was left to Pearson to shepherd the lower order to a total of 191 as he finished unbeaten with 31, off 56 balls. Dulwich were dismissed in the 49th over, leaving their opponents 51 overs to get the runs.


Dulwich struck back immediately as Assan Crawford-Khan took the first wicket in the second over without a run on the board. But the score then advanced rapidly as Shareef Hassan launched an assault on Jon Lodwick that saw 18 runs come off the next over. Sanderstead had reached 46 in the eighth over when Crawford-Khan took his second wicket. Lodwick got his revenge three overs later when he bowled Hassan. The opener had made 44, off only 31 balls, out of a total of 60-3. The pace men subsequently gave way to left arm spinners Alex Gledhill and Patrick George, who slowed the scoring but took only one more wicket as the total advanced to 157-4 in the 43rd over.


By this time Lodwick had returned to the attack, and in an impressive second spell he bowled six overs for just 13 runs, with a wicket in each of his last three overs, to finish with 4-51 off 14. A fine throw by skipper Ed Stolle led to a run out at the other end, as Sanderstead lost four wickets in five overs for 11 runs to decline to 168-8 after 47 overs. With 24 needed off the last four overs, and 21 off the last three, the pressure was now on the batsmen. But they proved equal to the task, taking seven runs off the 49th and thirteen off the 50th to level the scores. The victory came off the second ball of the last over.


Dulwich thus finished with just four points and remain in ninth place. Next week they have a difficult match away to leaders Malden Wanderers.
