Legs galore as Fernando bites

When the batting side also umpires, it takes a great deal of courage and certainty to give a fellow team mate out leg before.

Imagine the heroic bravery, and Hawkeye certainty, that Nick Clarke displayed on Sunday when he became the first Old Fallopian ever to give a hat-trick of leg before decisions.

Yesterday's Men vs Woodstock
Yesterday's men: (Standing L-R) Tim Castle, Philip Barrass, Simon Tate, Nick Clarke, David Sultanti, Simon Hemelryk, Mark Dummett; (seeking inspiration L-R) John Shaw, Chris Lim; (kneeling R) Mark Venables (picture: Adam Castle)

First up was debutant Chris Lim, trapped on 12 by a low stunner from Woodstock's Darren Fernando. Then it was Simon Hemelryk's turn, caught on the pad dead between the wickets by Ferando next ball.

Finally in came guest star Alan Pearson of The Shakespear CC, only to be turned back to the boundary after another deadeye delivery from Fernando found an undefended pad.

The Old Fallopians never recovered from that triple blow. Chasing what had seemed a simple target of 111, it confirmed itself an unlucky total as Fallopian wickets continued to tumble. 

Clarke himself was not spared the umpire's finger and also fell to the dread lbw.

Only veteran John Shaw showed any resistance, coming in at 46-8 and scoring a steady 26 before a Fernando delivery knocked over his bails to end the innings at 100 all out.

The disappointing batting could not take the shine off an earlier splending bowling and fielding performance by the Fallopians, played out on a glorious sunny afternoon at Highgate.

Excellent catching by Mark Dummett at square leg, Simon Tate behind the stumps and skipper David Sultanti at point complimented a six-man bowling line up that each took at least one wicket.

Philip Barrass took the bowling honours of 4 wickets for 12 runs, while Dummett earned the most economic spell with just 7 runs scored off a 5 over session that claimed two wickets.
