Sunday Nine beat the Chelsea Nomads

Sunday 15th July 2018
Friendly
Chelsea Nomads 191 for 9 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 192 for 3 (33.4 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon won by 7 wickets

With World Cup fever apparently over on Wednesday night, this long-standing fixture was confirmed the following evening with the opposition saying “we have ten – should be able to get an 11th” and Stoke having 14 to pick from. A few of the 14 switched to Saturday to make the 3rd XI match happen, leaving us with 10+TBC – even if TBC wasn’t around, still a good ten. Sadly TBC wasn’t available, no worries there…but then two pulled out with bad backs – one first thing, another an hour before the start – resulting in an SOS. Roddy Kelso answered the call, so having lost a toss committing us to a fielding stint and no chance to sign up any others we made do with nine…and what a performance on another hot day.
