Fallopians flay Chats
Doubts over Wardle run-out

By the Editor (Tim Castle)

Overexuberance or cold calculation? What was club veteran Peter Frisby thinking when he called skipper Andrew Wardle for a second run on the last ball of the Fallopians' innings?

Was it an irrational eagerness to add even more pressure on a wilting Chats? Or was it a plot to rob the Aussie exile of the top place in the batting averages? (Yes - Ed).

The effect was to leave the Fallopians with an unbeatable lead of 156, Frisby not out, second in the batting average and one place above the unlucky Wardle.

Had the mild-mannered Wardle refused Frisby's disasterous call, his season's best score of 52 would have made him top of the batting ranks. That desperate dash for the run that never was turned a 34.3 average into 25.8, three notches below Frisby's.

But letís draw a veil over Frisbyís folly.

Mark Dummett thrashed a quick 37 before missing a slow high one from Chatís Sarah Barnard. Chris Nagle puffed his way to a personal best of 49 and extras added another 15.

There were plenty of runs. No need for a mad dash in the last over (thatís enough - Ed).

Anyhow, Chats never had a chance. Not even with Fallopians dropping all but one of a shower of catching chances. Only Wardleís fingers showed any traces of glue.

Paul Marinko was nimble behind the stumps and David Sultanti bowled accurately.

But the dayís best bowling came from Freddie Barrass, playing while his injured father and club founder Philip dallied in Detroit.

He conceded just seven runs off his two overs making him the most economical of the clubís non-wicket takers to date.
