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.

2s v Lingfield 2008 019

2nd XI Champions in 2008

With Pagie reminiscing about the 1st XI’s promotion day out at Sanderstead in 2008, (http://www.stokecc.co.uk/2017/02/04/my-greatest-xi-andy-page/), the same day the 2nd XI crushed Lingfield to secure the Championship of the 2nd XI competition. Five of Richie P’s greatest XI, (http://www.stokecc.co.uk/2016/12/11/stoke-dabernon-advent-calendar-2016-11/), were in the side that day, and a few were out with Logie last week. Here is the team…

Richie v Seb

Stoke D’Abernon Advent Calendar 2016 (11)

11 is for “My Greatest XI”

Listening to an old audio-book of Richie Benaud’s, in it he devotes a couple of chapters to what he calls “My Greatest XI.” By his definition they had to:

* Be brilliant cricketers, characters and good mixers on & off the pitch as they would be representing him.
* Have a beneficial effect on the game, be champions and have left an influence on cricket.
* Play on good pitches with pace, good for shots and fast bowlers, with spin to come into the game later on.
