Academics fail to make mark

Played at Hampstead Heath

By Rafe Smallman (captain)

It appears we have a team of highly capable bowlers! When even the wicketkeeper is taking wickets you know something is up. But more of that later.

The day saw the Old Fallopians take on the unknown quality of Bikbeck University. OF put Birkbeck into bat and for the first three overs it looked as if we were in for a long afternoon. However, tight bowling ensued and wickets started to tumble, leaving Birkbeck 3 short of a century.

It was a great all round display from bowlers and fielders, with special mention going to Matt Woods, taking 3 (?) wickets, including that of their star batsman, as well as a wicket with his debut, shane warne style, ball!

This prompted an early tea and much scurrying from the tea lady, but it was worth the wait!

All it needed was for the OFs to knock of the runs. Tight opening bowling ensured a slow start, a couple of wickets got the nerves jangling, however the result was never really in doubt.

A few big blows from AK and a nice closing partnership from the two Peters saw us to the finish with 6 wickets in hand and time to spare for a beer (? where was it?) match.

In this game, all ten players bowled, and I don't remember a bad ball from the Fallopians. Remarkable, a lot of untapped resources! OFs kept Birkbeck down to 50 runs off 10 overs, a target that seemed well within their reach.

Birkbeck also showed a capability to bowl well, and it was starting to look close until the partnership between Simon and John set up the finish with 5 balls to spare.
