Friendly
Bank of England 158 all out (39 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 159 for 8 (30.2 overs)

Sunday XI v Concorde 18 06 2017

Sunday XI One Wicket Away

Sunday 18th June 2017
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 236 for 5 declared (43 overs)
Concorde 179 for 9 (40 overs)

Batting first, Doug Gilbertson was originally listed at No.3 but faced the first ball of the match as the person originally selected for the role was sat on the roller at Stoke with less than 20 minutes to the start.
