Fallopians wilt in a scorcher 

By (captain) Richard Telfer

The toss was won by Duke of Hamilton who sent the Fallopian boys out to field on a scorching summers afternoon. Duke's opening batsman Paul then proceeded to blast the Fallopian bowlers to all parts of the ground, racking up 81 in quick time.

The Fallopians swung the changes and eventually former Surry under 19's all-rounder Russell Balkind made the breakthrough with his first ball, with the Duke opener going for one hit too many to be caught on the boundary.

Thereafter, the Fallopian bowlers fought back well on a pitch that was breaking up as the day went on. Excellent catching by wicketkeeper Simon Tate (3 catches) and good bowling by all Fallopian bowlers managed to limit the Duke of Hamilton to 220-8 from their 35 overs - a good effort after they were 150-1.

By the time the Fallopians went out to bat, the pitch was very patchy with lots of uneven bounce causing all sorts of problems for the batsmen. No-one made much of an impression, and the Fallopians were shot out for 82, a disappointing effort.

The highlight of the day was Mark Venables's desperate (but unsuccessful) attempt to cut off a boundary by diving head first into some thorn bushes. It was a valiant attempt and provided great entertainment for everyone who witnessed it.
