Downpour dashes chance of victory

Played at Beaverwood Road, Sidcup

The Fallopians second weekend game of the season saw them making their way down to the south east suburbs of London to be struck by the beautiful surroundings of the Barts University hospital ground.

Winning the toss and electing to field on a flat, slow track, the Fallopians got of to a poor start with some unusaul dismissals seeing the score to 29-3. The confidence waning, and enter the borrowed from Barts player Ash. Facing a tough time from his medical peers, he made them sure they knew what they were missing that day. Putting on a fine partnership of exactly 100 with Rafe, The Fallopians eased their way back into the driving seat, playing carefully at first, and opening up after the drinks break with some lusty blows and beautiful strokeplay.

Both payers reached their 50s, and then Matt Asquith and Simon Hemelryck maintained the momentum perfectly to ensure the Fallopians were able to post a formidable 221 in 35 overs.

After tea and it soon became apparent that 221 may not be enough. Barts rushed to 50 in 9 overs. A rain break enabled the Fallopians to have a tactical discussion which paid dividends, pace from both ends ensuring the runs dried up and the wickets started to fall.

John Shaw and Will Hopson-Hill bowling in tandem meant the Barts team were becoming ever more frustrated (both taking 2 wickets), and it was therefore a shame that the rain started to fall just as Charlie Davis and Paul Robson were about to finish them off (slight exaggeration!). Paul Robson's final ball before the downpour saw some extra bounce which suggests he could be quite a handful in the games to come.

The rain interupted the game with Barts needing 80ish of 10 overs with 6 wickets in hand, but it did mean we got to watch the end of England's victory in the Caribbean via the means of the modern day Ceefax that is Sky Sports News.

This game contained some really high quality cricket from both teams and will no doubt inspire the Fallopains to go on to achieve greater sucess in their next few games. So put your name forward!
