Last week’s Ask Steven column on CricInfo looked at people who opened the batting and the bowling in the same ODI. The question and the answer was:

Q : Mehidy Hasan opened the batting and bowling for Bangladesh in the Asia Cup final. How many times has this happened?

Enjoyable day despite defeat for the Sunday XI

Sunday 1st July 2018
Friendly
Old Ashfordians 229 for 4 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 200 for 7 (40 overs)
Old Ashfordians won by 29 runs

The original Women’s Surrey Trust League match was postponed in the week after the opposition were unable to raise a side. This left the Stoke Rec free for a home friendly and our good friends the Old Ashfordians were able to come along and play.

3s v Epsom Methodists June 2018

3rd XI Victorious. McMillan 70, Hafeez 57. 2s Lose.

Saturday 23rd June 2018
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 3rd XI 197 for 8 (40 overs)
Epsom Methodists 175 for 8 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 3rd XI won by 22 runs

Good availability at the beginning of the week allowed us to accept the offer of an invitation to play the Epsom Methodists. EMCC are one of our traditional ‘Sunday XI’ opponents but a crammed fixture programme at the Rec meant this was one we had to miss this year…so it was great when they were able to host a Saturday game and enough of our ‘I’ll play either day’ candidates were able to attend.

Toby Tarrant Award

My Greatest XI – Toby Tarrant

Another “My Greatest XI “ has dropped into the Club in-box, this one courtesy of Toby Tarrant who writes…

Here you go guys, I’m sat by the pool in Verona compiling this. The things I do for this Club…

Ian Hopton
“Hoppy” has to be one of the first names on the teamsheet. Mr.Reliable in many ways, I can’t think of a game where he hasn’t contributed with either the ball, the bat or in the field. I’ll put him at the top of the order because the rest of this line-up likes to have a slog and we need someone to at least try and stick around. Plus we need him to lead the warm up and roll the wicket.

Richmond Nomads 117 all out (28 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 120 for 0 (21.3 overs)

Bowled Out by a Stoker

This week’s “Ask Steven” feature on CricInfo saw one follower ask:

Which bowler has the best record of hitting the stumps, given a large amount of wickets?

The answer was:

Of the 181 bowlers who have so far taken 100 or more Test wickets, the two with the highest percentage of bowled dismissals are the 19th-century England pair of George Lohmann, with 51 out of 112, or 45.53% bowled, and Johnny Briggs, with 52 out of 118, (44.06%)

Firstly a thanks to Drew for making this happen for us and it was a shame he wasn’t able to attend an excellent evening himself due to another commitment. A space was kept for the Club Captain…
