Superstars 213-4 (Walker 53ret, Gaught 36, Spencer 32, Kumar Chintala 25no) BEAT
LSE 117 all out (Conway 3-1, Varghese 2-40) by 96 runs.
On a beautiful day at the lovely Berrylands ground Barry lost the toss, but in true FIFA style this didn't matter as it been pre-decided that Superstars would bat. LSE were in a player deficit so Rhys "son of Steve" Meyler took the field against us. Gaught and Walker opened. Walker was batted well for his 50 but the same could not be said for Gaught who struggled on the recently watered wicket - his innings of 36 included an amusing double-dip drop from the keeper and slip, while Economists predicted around 70 of his 30 plays and misses. Spencer (32) and Conway (23) supplied typical aggression, which was demanded to up the run rate. Steve Evison (2), Sandeep (25no) and Gigg (9no) inflated the score to 213 for 4 in 34 overs. Right at the end of the innings there was a very unfortunate injury to a fielder which restricted the game to 34 overs a side.
After a tea that proved resources are not scarce, whatever economists tell you, Sandeep and Roy opened the bowling. Once Roy made the breakthrough, with an excellent ball that help in the pitch, caught by Jeremy at gulley there was a contagion of wickets with Varghese finishing with 7-0-40-2 and Keates 7-1-24-1, the new Sandeep having finished with 4-0-11-0. There was an upturn for LSE but Superstars were regulating the run rate well. The key dismissal came when Jason got the opener out LBW, he ended with 5-0-21-1. Matt Conway got full Marx for efficiently mopping up the tail (2-1-1-3) - including another catch for Fielder of the Year 2011 Gaught- who seems to have a third, invisible, hand these days. The highlight of the match for many was Rhys Meyler scoring a run, but unfortunately his promising innings was ended by Steve Meyler, caught by Adam. LSE made 117 all out.
An efficient performance against a sub-optimal LSE side for Superstars in a neo-classical match.
