Match Report
Superstars fielded first on a murky evening. Jack led the way with a top drawer fielding performance, that included two run outs (the second of which he cooly walked to the stumps to claim). Superstars' seven bowlers kept things tight without taking the wickets they perhaps deserved - although Mike Duggan produced one of the balls of the season to bowl Dimon around his pads- Plahe and Mountain were particularly miserly. One nameless Superstar suffered a wardrobe malfunction while fielding which we'd all rather forget. 97 in an 18 over clash felt below par but.....
Dinos came out showing they had an excellent bowling attack and had Stars 28-3 early on (although one of those wickets was, inevitably, a run out caused by Bishop - Nick Allen-Perry the unfortunate victim). At this point you need a leader, a hero, a calm head. Unfortunately Superstars had Barry Gigg but our greatest ever run-getter set about the target with quick singles, nudges and nurdles. With John Bishop completing a standard game by retiring injured and Barry running out Chris Briggs (his 12,436th run out victim I believe) it was turning it a stereotype Superstars chase but then Jack Lovell joined Barry to push the innings forward with 20 runs in 14 balls until he was dismissed with 10 runs required from the final three overs. Although there were nervous moments (Mountain being dismissed) the experience of Gigg and Duggan got Superstars home with 5 balls to spare.
A rare win in 2021 for Superstars but one we were grateful for! Another close game against Dinos whose record against us is a bit misleading.
