Thursday 21st August 2014
Stoke D’Abernon 148 for 9 (20 overs)
Maori Oxshott 150 for 5 (19.4 overs)
Maori Oxshott won by 5 wickets

Before reading on a massive vote of thanks to Maori Oxshott for hosting this fixture. Stoke were starved of friendly T20 action having had both oppositions from last week scratch due to lack of numbers. Oxshott did, in fact, raise a side at very short notice to replace one of them last week, only for both sides to be beaten by the weather, but undeterred the clubs raised sides again. Read more

After being inserted, Alistair McMillan blunted the opening bowlers whilst Stephen Anderson was his usual attacking self at the other end, hitting three fours and three sixes in a knock of 47 from 35 balls. Both were dismissed in quick succession, Anderson bowled by Goss, then McMillan, (10), was caught at the wicket off the bowling of Stoke Quizmaster Peter Andrew. 60 for 2. Read more
