Good Weekend on the Field for Stokers

A good weekend for our Stokers overseas.

Those following our Twitter feed will have seen Shawn & Hoppy record a convincing 8-wicket win in their first two-day game yesterday afternoon, Shawn bagging a nice 6-34 in the second innings yesterday…

WPCC Week 1 Win
Shawn 6 for 34
Dyson and Hopton - October 2017

Scorecard :

…and in the small hours England’s Women got going in the Ashes, Nat putting in good figures of 8-1-24-2 to keep Australia’s women behind the asking rate, that rose, comically, to 150.00 per over for those who might not have seen the caption! Maybe that was the Australians still trying to justify that asking South Africa to score 22 off one ball in 1992 was OK/achievable! (Look up an image for that scoreboard if you don’t know the story.)
