June 26, 2005 Friendly vs The Shakespeare Lost by 125 runs

Full scorecard | averages | back to fixtures

Double ton is too big a target

After losing three early wickets for 43 runs The Shakespeare looked in deep trouble ... but the next wicket didn't fall for another 215 runs, by when the game had slipped from the Old Fallopians' grasp. 

Two Shakespeare players (see picture below) scored hundreds, but in reply Simon Hemelryk was the highest scoring on 42. 

Here's the full post-match analysis from captain Richard Telfer ....

Two centurions

Double hundreds: Shakespeare's Toby Jenkinson and Alan Pearson celebrate their twin centuries

Bowling first, the Fallopians were looking to put early pressure on the Shakespeare line-up on a seaming, green wicket. Debutant Michael Osbourne took the new ball and bowled with pace and a good line and was eventually rewarded with the wicket of danger man Ahearn, with Russell Balkind taking an excellent sharp catch at point.

At the other end, new ball partner Tim Castle extracted steep bounce and seam from the green top and had the batsmen jumping. He made a double breakthrough in his second over, finding the edge of Beary’s bat with a rearing leg cutter for a regulation slips catch from Telfer, then following up two balls later with a fast swinging yorker, to send the Shakespeare number 3 on his way, bowled for a duck. 

At 43–3, the Shakespeare boys were looking shaky, but the Fallopians did not count on the excellent stroke play of Captain Pearson and wicket keeper Jenkinson. Together they put on 215 runs for the third wicket, mixing aggressive hitting with fast singles to have the Fallopian fieldsmen scattered to all parts of the ground. Both batsmen were rewarded for their excellent batting with hundreds, Pearson finishing on 107 n.o. and Jenkinson making 102. 

Eventually Peter Morrow, bowling his wily leg spin, made the breakthrough, sliding a well flighted flipper past Jenkinson’s outside edge to collect his off bail. It was just reward for the former Queensland under 19’s representative, who bowled with good line and length throughout his 5 over spell. 

The Shakespeare finished their 35 overs at 296-4, a daunting target. 

Unfortunately, the Fallopian innings never really got started, with the constant fall of wickets taking away any momentum. The Shakespeare new ball pair found the overcast conditions to their liking, swinging the ball both ways and bowling a good line and length. Simon Hemelryk continued his good form this season, with a well made 42, first seeing off the opening pair, then attacking when the change bowlers came on. At the other end, Russell Balkind and Simon Tate offered good support for a well made 24 and 28 respectively. 

In the end, the large total and the excellent new ball bowling by the Shakespeare boys proved too much, with the Fallopians being dismissed for 171, taking the season tally to 0-2 against the Shakespeare.
