Sunday XI lose by 42 runs at Kingston

After dismissing their hosts for 161 the Sunday XI made a promising start in reply but collapsed from 49 for no wicket to 119 all out.

Alex Bond led the Stoke bowling effort with 3 for 32 from ten overs. Rod Thomson, (2-15), took his first wickets for the club and there was a wicket each for Richie Parrett, Sam Bradford-Smith and 1st XI keeper batsman Tom Frost who would have taken notes on the stumping off his bowling by Rick Mustill!

One glance at the scorecard will tell you that 10 players were bowled during the course of this game. Was this due to the accuracy of the bowling or more down to a succession of dropped catches during both innings? I think a bit of both.

Tim Dyer writes:

What a great day for English cricket! England win the T20 World Cup in Barbados and the Under 17s start their season with a win!

Sunday morning at Stoke HQ was slightly different from the weather in Barbados! Grey, overcast, cold, very occasional burst of sunshine and a good attempt at rain…a fairly typical English summer’s day! A little local knowledge helped Stoke enormously. Thanks to the groundsman, who advised that the wicket was a slow, low bouncing track that would take spin. He advised batting first to take maximum advantage of the higher bounce that the new ball would offer. John lost the toss and Leatherhead put Stoke in to bat.

Good games over the weekend…

League game v Esher May 7
Esher 299, Stoke 238
All bowled well, (Jake, Daniel, Alex N, George picked up 2 wickets), and we would have restricted them more if we had held our catches better. Batting was tough as there bowling was good and they had a great keeper and it was dark. George and Alex H stood out.
