|May 2, 2002||vs Rose & Crown||Lost by six wickets|
Batters must do better
Three recognised batsmen, but only one could see the ball.
Barrass swung on one and was caught. Wardle sliced, edged high in the air and was scooped for seven.
Stebbins was late, but made up for lost time. Four sixes, five fours, he reached the season's first half-century with ease.
Others fell abount him till only Castle stood between Stebbins and the abyss.
Careful farming kept the boundaries coming, but trying at the 14th over's end to play for a single, Stebbins played onto the stumps, and left dejected.
Special mention for Paul Hosking's debut innings. The left-hander settled down and crafted a deserved 15.
Fallopian bowling failed to deliver, only debutant Wright tasting success with a Wardle catch.
Fellow deb John Shaw got the short straw, bowled the last five balls and watched the final nine runs speed Rose & Crown to victory.
