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?

Stoke 2s stay top with win against Farncombe

Jonny Lawes led Stoke D’Abernon to an 8th victory of the league season.

After acting skipper Falcon won the toss and chose to field; Bondi took a wicket in each of his first 2 overs; the first a simple catch lobbed up to Tufty, the second a ball which beat the batsman for pace as he could only play it on to his off stump. Po was back from injury in his usual place at the railway end, but with a shorter run up and even less pace than we’re used to and nearly had an early wicket too when visiting skipper Paterson was put down off the edge of his bat. Not long afterwards Bondi had a third, thanks to an edge held and Stoke were well in control with Farncombe on 26-3. Read more

Sunday XI run Ashtead close in thriller

Whilst Spain and Holland served up 120 minutes of dross, Sunday XI skipper Stephen Finch has news of a more exciting event…

“…A great game against Ashtead today, really showing what Sunday cricket is all about.

Ashtead won the toss, decided to bat, scored 271, one player got a hundred. Our star bowler was James Trower who bowled his longest ever spell, 18 overs for good figures, really restraining the runs. Star fielder was Ben Dunjay who stopped countless fours on the deep extra cover boundary and also a great catch to stop a six. Read more
