The season rounded up – 2017

It was a season of near-misses, at both ends of the tables, for Dulwich's senior mens cricket teams.

The 1st XI spent the season at the nether end of the Division 2 table, with a final day win over Old Rutlishians saving them from relegation. A mid-season thrashing of eventual champions Esher was the high point. Salaar Waqar had an excellent season, making 374 runs at 34 and taking 25 wickets at 17 – including a fifty and five-for in that Esher win. Tom Savill again led the run scoring efforts, with 427 of them at 47, including a superb 135 off 106 balls in a successful 265-run chase against Dorking. Sav moves down under for work this winter – everyone at the club wishes him well and hopes to see him back Burbage Road again soon for a sambuca or two!

After spending 17 out of 18 weeks in the top two, the 2nd XI missed out on back to back promotions, and a return to Premier Division cricket, with a final day defeat by Old Rutlishians. It really was a season of two halves. Seven out of the first nine games were won – then only one of the following nine was a victory. Ed Towner scored 464 runs at 46 and was not out at the end in four of those first seven wins and made the team's only hundred. Skipper James Bridgland (28 wickets at 13) was excellent with the ball again and Graeme Hough took 23 at 17. AJ Patankar nabbed 32 victims with the gloves. 

Ever having to compensate for unavailability in higher teams, the 3rd XI managed mid-table respectability in the Premier Division. An incredible 51 were players were used across the campaign and, with no settled side, wins against the higher sides eluded them - although champions Spencer were forced to cling on for a winning draw with nine down at the DSG. 

Also involved in a near-miss were the 4th XI – again – as they sought Premier Division glory. Matt Dixon's men finished second again, although were behind champions Wimbledon by a win for much of the season. A run of eight wins in their first ten games of the season was ended by two weeks of rain, but there was much to be proud of about the team's campaign. Andrew Swain showed new excellence with the ball and led the wicket-taking charts with 20, including an excellent 8-55 to bowl the side to victory against Oxted & Limpsfield.

The 5th XI toyed with promotion from the Kent 1B League for a while, but came unstuck in the final weeks. Zeeshan Chauhry made the club's highest score of the season, with 151 against Ex Blues, before becoming an important member of the 4th XI side. And it was a pleasure to see David Begg return to Dulwich colours this season. Finally, the 6th XI finished a commendable third in a truncated Kent 2C league.

U12s win the Harry Bright Cup!

The u12s travelled to Bromley on Sunday to contest the final for the Harry Bright Cup – our first attempt at winning silverware in the North Kent league. We had not really been troubled en route to the final, but the boys knew that Bromley CC, the defending champions, would be difficult opponents.
