Full scorecard | averages | back to fixtures  


Played at Hampstead Heath Extension

Good cricket all around and a closely contested match till the dying moments. Old Fallopians took revenge and defeated old rivals Homerton by 4 wickets. Homerton brought a strong side with players from UK, Australia, South Africa and New Zeeland.

Toss: Homerton won the toss and decided to bat on a very hot sunny day (loved the sun but all were missing some tree shade)

Bowling: Anthony Banks and Azaz Khalil started well but Homerton kept the run rate to 5 till the 10th over. Anthony got the opener out when total was on 19. Azaz was very tight and only gave 9 runs off his first five overs and his 3rd over was made up of six yorker dot balls.

After 10 overs double change was introduced with Hassan Khan and John Shaw. John Shaw took the same end as Azaz and kept the run rate low and Hassan took the shorter boundary side and had lot of disguised slower bowls and was rewarded by five excellent wickets and John by one wicket.

Once seven wickets were down, Azaz was brought back to wrap the innings and he did that in 1.4 overs (two yorkers bowled) and one almost a yorker played to point for a low excellent catch by Laurie Roberts. Homerton were done within 30 overs. (They were in 20/20 mode which did not help )

Batting: Will Ellis and Spike started well as bowl was moving around a lot for Woodman. 1st wicket fell on 23 where one kept low to Will. Suhail joined Spike and started defensively concentrating on partnership building. Spike started to open shoulder and after couple of fours got one that went up to the fielder at mid off.

Then came Will Hopson-Hill - Homerton remembered the 2013 season - 200 run partnership between these two so brought the best bowlers. Both Will and Suhail kept going solidily and slowly and started to open shoulders as total was near with a 87 run partnership including 13 fours between themselves.

After loss of few quick wickets - Laurie and Anthony joined hands to get the remaining runs and match was over in 37th over.

Fielding: Was spot on, good catches and hardly any midfields or dropped catch. Three excellent catches like last week.

Lunch: Some great food that both team enjoyed –included home cooked murgh biryani (Chicken), Aalo bhujia (potato with cumin), chana masala, naan breads and cakes/biscuits.
