Sat 7th July – 1st XI v Worcester Park

WORCESTER PARK 89 (31.4) lost to DULWICH 90-2 (15.4) by 8 wickets




A devastating spell of bowling by Salaar Waqar saw Dulwich dismiss Worcester Park for just 89 runs to win their Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 match by 8 wickets.


Dulwich put their opponents in to bat, and Assan Crawford-Khan quickly justified his captain’s decision by taking two wickets in the second over of the innings, both caught behind. The Hill brothers had taken the score to 19 in the ninth over when the other opening bowler Ed Fleet dismissed Rob Hill in the same manner. Joe Hill and Danny Palmer looked in little trouble in adding 48 in 12.4 overs for the fourth wicket. The advent of Waqar changed all that, as he had Hill lbw with his second ball. Jon Lodwick struck in the next over at the other end, dismissing Palmer for 31 to give Will Bancroft his fourth catch behind the stumps. After that it was a procession as Waqar induced a succession of false shots which resulted in four good catches and another lbw. The off-spinner finished with the remarkable figures of 5.4-2-9-6. Worcester Park had lost their last seven wickets in 10.3 overs for just 22 runs, to be all out for 89 in the 32nd over.


Having been dismissed for a meagre total that was well below par for the conditions, Worcester Park needed an early breakthrough if they were to have any hope of defending it. But it was not to be as Nick Hudson and Ed Towner added 66 for the first wicket in just 11.3 overs. Once again it was Hudson who made the early running, but Towner had just started to accelerate when he fell to a diving catch by the keeper for 20. Hudson advanced to his half century off just 42 balls, one less than the previous week, but also like the previous week he was out without adding to his score. Waqar and skipper Ed Stolle then saw their side to victory, with the captain having the satisfaction of hitting the winning run.


The match had started an hour early to allow the players to watch England’s World Cup match in the afternoon, but ended well before the football started. The win lifts Dulwich two places to eighth in the table. Next week they will be hoping to build on this fine performance with their third successive home match, against third placed Dorking.
