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)
Match Drawn

The hottest day of the year saw Stoke and Concorde play out a draw at Sendholme.

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. After a quiet opening maiden, it was anything but at the start of the second over as debutant Ishan Mulchandani drilled the first two balls he faced through the covers and mid-off, then pulled the third along the ground through mid-wicket – not a bad way to start your Stoke career – and he hit another four before the over was out.

Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 148 for 9 (40 overs)
Epsom Methodists 149 for 5 (34.4 overs)
Epsom Methodists won by 5 wickets

An inspection of the scorecard makes this look like a routine ‘restrict & chase’ for the opposition, but it was far from that. Stoke can take a number of positives from this, notably the contributions from their younger players.

Friendly
Merrow 160 all out (34.4 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 155 for 6 (40 overs)
Merrow won by 5 runs

In a tremendous advert for Sunday cricket Stoke renewed acquaintances with Merrow after the latter replied to our ad that we were only able to place after Moumer Khara and Doug Gilbertson found extra resources to complete a side, a prospect that looked unlikely following the Saturday selection needing resources.

Harrow Wayfarers 151 all out (42.5 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 95 for 7 (40 overs)
Match Drawn

Fun in the sun as Stoke and the Harrow Wayfarers played out a slow-paced friendly match at the Rec.

With members of the opposition arriving late due to traffic the match kicked off 20 minutes after the scheduled start with a ‘negotiated’ toss seeing Stoke take the field first; and new-ball pair Adrian Mills and Richie Parrett wasted no time tucking into a re-juggled top order.
