Ken Block Trophy
v DODGERS, 11TH MAY 2011
Superstars 169-2 (Walker 63, Gaught 59, Ratcliff 29no) BEAT
Dodgers 96-3 by 73 runs.
Barry won the toss (this is getting silly) and batted. Paul Gaught and Will Walker opened up, and after a scratchy first two or three overs Will began to play with his customary elegance and Paul with his customary, err, determination. There was a little bit of help with dropped catches but Paul first and then Will reached 50s. Paul was out, caught by Rob Fox, for 59 after a stand of 120 in the 15th over. Will continued on until he was caught behind for 63. Jaime Ratcliff (29 not out) and Scott Thornton (7 not out) then took up the mantle with some lusty blows. Despite some excellent shots in our 169 for 2 for many people the highlight of the innings was Mike Taylor sitting on, and breaking, a plastic box.
There was a strange opening to the Dodgers innings. Our opening bowler looked like Sandeep, but this bowler was accurate as well as fast. A well deserved 4-2-10-1 followed, the other opening bowler, Ben Coleman (4-0-19-0) and fellow paceman Simon Gundry (4-1-15-1) ensured that Dodgers were not even chasing the total. Mike Taylor took a wicket in a "liquorice allsorts" display. Scott and Jason bowled well at the end, with Neil Priest surviving Jason's bowling for a change, even his new "Zumba" delivery. Dodgers made 96 for 3.
An excellent performance, followed by a good turn out at the pub for celebration drinks. And we avoided having to pay for a replacement plastic box.
