Sunday 14th July 2019
Friendly
HJM CC 215 for 7 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 213 all out (39.5 overs)
HJM CC won by 2 runs

While England and New Zealand served up a rather dull affair at Lord’s, two sides, meeting for the first time, fixture only agreed the day before, served up a classic at The Rec that would have been talked about well into the night but for the fact that the teams were still playing at that time.

Sunday Cricket : Two Wins. One run feast, one feast of insanity

Sunday 30th June 2019
Famine to feast again on the availability front and we had numbers to play two Sunday fixtures this weekend, thus avoiding the difficult decision of having to tell a handful of people that they had no game. Plans were hastily changed when the original opposition called an hour after the second fixture was booked to say they couldn’t raise a side; but we found a replacement opposition well known to us selected the sides accordingly.

Sunday XI Win by 99

Sunday 2nd June 2019
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 252 all out (38.5 overs)
Allstars of Chichester 153 all out (28.4 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 99 runs

A new poster boy for a Sunday XI match report as Saud Ahmed hit 87 on home debut, (after a second ball duck the previous day on Club debut), to help Stoke post a formidable total that, one player aside, the opposition looked unlikely to chase. Read more

Sunday XI win at Petersfield

Sunday 5th May 2019
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 225 for 3 (40 overs)
Petersfield 159 for 8 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 66 runs

After the Saturday 2nd XI match was lost due to the opposition ground not being fit; a few of the affected players made themselves available for Sunday to allow an advert to be placed late in the week that generated an offer from an unknown quantity in Petersfield. Read more

Career Runs in Sixes

Mr Handel from Cobham contacted the Club to ask what proportion of runs he and his peers have made in 6s. In some rare down-time over the Christmas period we’ve now managed to put a couple of things together that we hope answers his query.

Of the players that played in 2018, here are the percentages of their career runs for the Club in sixes. To make this list you must have hit a minimum of eight career sixes and scored a minimum of 150 runs for the Club: Read more

Stokers Better/Worse than Virat Kohli

This week’s Ask Steven column on CricInfo looked at one of the poorer sides of Virat Kohli’s game. The question and the answer was:

Q : Does Virat Kohli have the worst average for anyone who has bowled more than 100 overs in ODIs?

A : Virat Kohli has so far taken four wickets in one-day internationals, for an average of 166.25. That is indeed the highest average for anyone who has bowled more than 100 overs. Next comes an Indian captain of a much earlier vintage, S Venkataraghavan, whose five ODI wickets cost him 108.40 apiece. Pommie Mbwangwa of Zimbabwe, (11 wickets at 103.63), also ended up with a three-figure average. Read more

Two Sunday XI Matches – Two Wins! – President 85*

Sunday 9th September 2018
Incredible availability meant that we needed to source an additional Sunday fixture to the one already in the card against Kingstonian. Our friends from Whiteley Village had an ad on the board, and a call to them resulted in a second game being agreed meaning everyone who was available at the time got a chance to play. Read more

Over 40s beat Leatherhead in Inaugural 100 ball match

Wednesday 29th August 2018
Friendly
Leatherhead Over 40s 77 for 8 (100 balls)
Stoke D’Abernon Over 40s 78 for 2 (70 balls)
Stoke D’Abernon Over 40s won by 8 wickets

The ECB may be trialling the 100 ball game soon, (http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/24461064/pca-confirms-involvement-trials-ecb-100-ball-competition), but Stoke’s and Leatherhead’s Over 40s got in first and played out a highly sociable game despite the time of year suggesting miners’ helmets might be needed. To avoid this prospect the sides were creative by bowling the first 48 balls from one end, then the remainder – including the ten ball final over – from the other. Read more

Sunday XI play well but settle for a Draw

Sunday 19th August 2018
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 223 for 7 dec (43 overs)
Surrey Cryptics 123 for 7 (42 overs)
Match Drawn

In years to come people could look at this scorecard and think ‘bore draw’ but the game went the distance and remained interesting until the last few deliveries. Read more
