An addendum has been added at the end of this report.
Can only manage a brief report:-
Methigion 93-2 off 20. Excellent dogged accumulation from Dush & Dinuka, both 31 NO. Well supported by Stableforth 8NO and wides-18.
Nervously we felt we were 20 short however an extraordinary fielding performance had them all out (only 9 of them mind) for 68. Methigion recording their first win of the Edwards Regime(only took until July!)
Scorching figures from Surendra 4-9-4 including a near hat-trick. Well supported by Van lingen 4-22-2. Great fielding once again from Shetty even after the WAGS had left and even a catch from Van-lingen- sensibly turning it on for the mother team despite near treachery fielding earlier for the opposition- Equity card in the post.
The final wicket was by then a formality and no one can accurately remember what happened- we were all too worried about Stableforth’s knee. We did hear some whooping from RV Locum ’45yards, 1 stump to hit,cross wind etc’ but as usual we ignored all this and had a very enjoyable pizza and beer feast kindly supplied by Francis Clark- who I feel we should play every week next year.
Addendum:- Many apologies to Dunuka who was in fact our near hat-trick bowler- he finished off the opposition in quick time taking 3 wickets from 2.2 overs for only 7 runs. Surendra finished with 3-9-2.
