Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 251 for 6 (35 overs)
The Min 196 all out (31.4 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 55 runs

More late season fun and a triumph for patience. As the weeks go by and more players call time on their seasons, some having previously said available, there was still a Stoke side ready for a game if an opposition could be found.

Centuries Making Up a Large Percentage of the Total – Revisited

This week’s Ask Steven column on CricInfo returned to the question of the highest percentage of a total scored in a One Day International.

The last time he was asked the question we had a look at our own centuries, (links to the original articles at the bottom of this page), and have added the hundreds scored so far this season to the list.

Over 40s v Weybridge June 2018

Overs 40s beat Leatherhead

Thursday 19th July 2018
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon Over 40s 176 for 3 (20 overs)
Leatherhead Over 40s 96 for 6 (20 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon Over 40s won by 80 runs

Leatherhead were the latest to put together an Over 40s side as this highly successful initiative started by Stoke and Weybridge a couple of years ago continues to grow. Don’t read the scorecard as a one-sided affair. Everyone was involved and Stoke ran out winners against a newly formed team who, with games, will reduce the targets they will have to chase and put more on their own total.

The Over 40s squad’s unbeaten run stretching back to last July came to an end as Walton-on-Thames chased down the required total with 14 balls to spare and plenty of wickets in hand.

What is it about T20 matches at Stoke this year? With the boffins at CricInfo looking into our seemingly unique Surrey Championship T20 win against Horsley & Send in May, (http://www.stokecc.co.uk/2018/05/25/t20-win-over-horsley-send-on-cricinfos-radar/), they’ll be at it again to see if a side has ever won a match with three sixes off the last three balls…and before you ask, remember that Ben Stokes wasn’t hit for all those sixes off the last four balls of that World T20 Final…and he had 19 runs to play with. Stoke needed 24 off the last over of this one.

Over 40s In Pre-Season

For years Stoke has offered cricket for everyone; 1s, 2s, 3s, Sunday XI, age group from U7-U17, Surrey Trust League, Under 19 T20 Blast, Friendly T20 & Long-Format, Women & Girls T20 & Long-Format to name just a few.

In 2016 an Over 40s squad was assembled for the first time. Affectionately known as “Dads & Pads” and made up mainly of colts’ parents, (but anyone over the age of 40 is welcome to join in and having children is not a pre-requisite!), the team defeated the mighty Weybridge in their inaugural match last May.
