SUPERSTARS 183 all out (Conway 45, Anand 39) BEAT
On another warm and humid July day Superstars took on much loved opponents (apart from their captain, who's a wally) Dartford Harriers, at the easy to find Stone Crossing ground (as Darth and Rich will testify). In accordance with tradition Superstars batted first.
Gaught and Spencer opened up and the wicket was a little up and down but i'm not sure Adam could blame it for his dismissal. It was a difficult start and Dartford's young opening bowler was causing difficulties - the runs wagon wheel would have concentrated in the slip area (coincidentally where Jason was fielding). Just as Paul looked like he'd checked in for a long innings he played a bad cut and was caught. Colin played some lovely shots until until, again he was out just as he got going. Vijay joined Matt and these two graudally put Superstars in a good position. However this was where we got as near to a professional team as we ever got, by losing concentration after the drinks break and lost the wickets of Anand and Conway. Not long after we lost the skipper and young debutant Damon (after a beautiful flick to the legside). At 120-7 it was a time for cool heads and experience and lucky Superstars had Steve Meyler and Richard Abigail who both batted well getting Superstars to a decent looking 183 - although both, and Roy, were dismissed in the late swing for runs leaving young Damon (on a second visit) not out.
This bought on the highlight of the day for way, tea. An excellent effort from Penny and Mary.
Rather heavier than 20 minutes earlier Superstars went out to field. Roy bowled beautifully, taking 2 wickets early on. With Vijay taking another victim Dartford were in toruble early on. However a nice partnership followed which had our heroes nervously looking at the scoreboard with around 6.5 an over required from 16 overs. However like the first innings the drinks break bought wickets, with Adam's dolly mixture medium pace getting both out - one off the back of the bat caught behind. After this although Jason batted well, as usual AGAINST us, Superstars chipped away at the tail with one batsman chopping on momentarily before he stepped on his stumps. New signing Damon bowled well but the champagne moment of the match was probably a startling dive, stop and throw by likely fielder of the year Paul Gaught to run out (with the help of bowler Colin) the 9th wicket.
Another wonderful day in Kent. Beautiful sunshine and a great tea. We really should play more fixtures in this area.
