Kirk Hammerton V Saxton
23rd May 2009
Saxton CC 218-9, Kirk Hammerton 111 All Out – Saxton Won By 117 Runs
Getting to the ground seemed to be an issue for some of the players as most of the team followed a group of caravan holidaymakers (not) through the village streets.
Having lost the toss and looking a very damp sticky wicket Kirk Hammerton’s captain kindly asked the 11 men of Saxton to bat first. At 10 for 2 after 3 overs their decision looked to have been vindicated. With Mr Buck (aka Sophie) having chased a wide one and Harry playing what can only be described as the worst shot ever seen on a wet wicket. Enter Skippy to join the returning Tea Boy. Both batted sensibly with Tea Boy getting to about 20 with his one shot! Then there was a ridiculous appeal for a caught behind against Tea Boy which was refused by the excellent umpire. Skipper and Tea Boy put on over 100 when Skippy called for a single and popped his hammy again. In came promoted Alex (King Louis) and batted excellently for his 21 with wickets falling around him, then got a really bad decision from the excellent umpire. In comes Ifti and bludgeons his way to 38 no, leaving the home side with 219 to win.
Tea Time, Burger in a pitta bread lovely!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1st ball of the reply, Cheeky to open and the Kirk Hammerton opener smacks the ball through extra with Tea Boy giving chase and the earth tremoring with each foot pounding on the ground a single stopped!! Saxtons second win was not in the script for the Home sides opener as he smacked the ball everywhere until trying to slog Cheeky and getting bowled. Wickets fell steadily with DC picking up another 5 for. There was of course the several dropped catches, a mix up in the slips, a dolly to short cover, Smokey did he drop one or two? King Louis picked up a wicket with a complete pie, and Harry picked up the last.
A second win of the campaign. Back to the hound to listen to the excuses of the 2nd team! Normal service resumes with a first team win.
- Never walk, that’s why we pay umpires
- Rubbish bowling gets wickets, ask Alex.
- Hamstrings pull after a night on the ale!!
Is the burnt jock strap back!!!!!
