Kohli v Stoke (2) : Consecutive 20+ Scores

India drew first blood in the Test Series this week despite a moderate contribution from Virat Kohli. However Virat added another impressive stat to his CV recently in the ODI series against the West Indies where, having made 157 not out, he made an eighteenth successive score of 20 or more in ODIs, (passing Matthew Hayden’s run of 17 20+ scores in 2007.) He then extended his run to nineteen with 107 in the next match before finally falling for 16 in Mumbai. Twelve of Virat’s knocks were also over 50, (8×100, 4×50.) Read more

My Greatest XI : Dom Morley

The next Stoker to put forward his squad and greatest final XI is Dom Morley, who has written to us from his placement in the States…

Had a bit of time on my hands out here in Montana so thought I’d chip in to the best XI that I’ve played with debate, although mine is a very modern team: Read more

Sixteen different players appeared in what turned out to be a reduced Under 19 T20 Blast programme in 2016, availability savaged by injuries and holiday commitments.

Under 19s show Learning and Progress

Nat West Under 19 T20 Blast
Maori Oxshott Tikis 115 all out (18.4 overs)
Stoke Slayers 119 for 2 (17 overs)
Stoke Slayers won by 8 wickets

Stoke’s stop-start Under 19 T20 Blast campaign finally got going again, and their points total and net-run-rate received a nice shot in the arm with an efficient win at Oxshott; untidy in places, notably the extras conceded count, but overall whole a very good night’s work. Read more

Stokers on the Outfield at the Oval Test

An incredibly fortunate group of young Stokers had the time of their lives last Friday, not only attending the final Test Match but also getting to play at the Oval in front of a 23500 sell out Ashes crowd, a memory they will all cherish.

Courtesy of Stoke D’Abernon CC and the Surrey Cricket Foundation ten colts ranging from U7 up to U11 received match tickets in the family stand and participated in a Kwik Cricket demonstration on the outfield during the lunch interval. Read more

Stoke D’Abernon 200 for 9 (40 overs)

Under 19 T20 Blast Win over Esher

Nat West Under 19 T20 Blast
Esher Eagles 134 for 4 (20 overs)
Stoke Slayers 137 for 3 (19.1 overs)
Stoke won by 7 wickets

Whilst Stoke didn’t make the winning hit until the start of the last, (maybe just to prove to their doubters that they could win one of these matches in the final over!), in truth this was a perfectly paced run chase after seven bowlers – again well done to Baz for involving everyone – restricted Esher to less than seven runs per over on a decent pitch and quick outfield that gave value for shots.
