Opened the Batting and the Bowling in the same League Match

Last week’s Ask Steven column on CricInfo looked at people who opened the batting and the bowling in the same ODI. The question and the answer was:

Q : Mehidy Hasan opened the batting and bowling for Bangladesh in the Asia Cup final. How many times has this happened?

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.

Oxshott v Stoke September 2018

Late season fun at Oxshott

Sunday 16th September 2018
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 220 for 5 (40 overs)
Maori Oxshott 222 for 5 (38.4 overs)
Maori Oxshott won by 4 wickets

With the clubs in different divisions in League cricket and the pre-season friendly wiped out by rain it took until mid-September to play a game against our friends and neighbours this year. It was worth the wait, though, as the sides played out an enjoyable match. Stoke took this one deep but the home side timed their run chase well with former Stoker George Depree pulling a six to win to and end his reign as Maori Oxshott’s Sunday skipper.

Saturday 15th September 2018
Friendly
Ashford 214 all out (38.3 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 205 for 8 (40 overs)
Ashford won by 9 runs

A great all-round individual performance from Will Thomson that included a maiden century wasn’t quite enough to score a win at Ashford who kindly offered us the fixture in the week after their original opposition never confirmed the fixture.

Finch 85 not out and Phipps 51 not out v Whiteley Village and Kingstonian September 2018

Two Sunday XI Matches – Two Wins! – President 85*

Sunday 9th September 2018
Incredible availability meant that we needed to source an additional Sunday fixture to the one already in the card against Kingstonian. Our friends from Whiteley Village had an ad on the board, and a call to them resulted in a second game being agreed meaning everyone who was available at the time got a chance to play.

Saturday 1st September 2018

Camberley 2nd XI 222 for 4 (34.4 overs)
Camberley 2nd XI won by 6 wickets

The 100

Over 40s beat Leatherhead in Inaugural 100 ball match

Wednesday 29th August 2018
Friendly
Leatherhead Over 40s 77 for 8 (100 balls)
Stoke D’Abernon Over 40s 78 for 2 (70 balls)
Stoke D’Abernon Over 40s won by 8 wickets

The ECB may be trialling the 100 ball game soon, (http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/24461064/pca-confirms-involvement-trials-ecb-100-ball-competition), but Stoke’s and Leatherhead’s Over 40s got in first and played out a highly sociable game despite the time of year suggesting miners’ helmets might be needed. To avoid this prospect the sides were creative by bowling the first 48 balls from one end, then the remainder – including the ten ball final over – from the other.
