BROADSTONE CC V OUTCASTS CC

BROADSTONE CRICKET CLUB, DORSET – SUNDAY 1 JULY 2018

OUTCASTS WON BY 6 WICKETS

After the nail-biting tie in the first tour game against Dorset Dinosaurs, the tourists ventured even further afield to take on new opponents at a new ground, Broadstone Cricket Club, located between Wimborne and Poole. It wasn’t the easiest place to find, but it turned out to be a pleasant, tree-lined ground, and our opponents were very welcoming.

The weather was as warm as the previous day, but more humid as captain for the day Ant Hobbs won the toss and invited Broadstone to bat first on a rock hard pitch. Paul Mooney and Ted Noone opened the bowling, and Ted took some stick from Broadstone opener Lal, who hit two huge sixes to the short boundary before holing out off Paul’s bowling to a very good catch in the deep by Chris.

Tony Williams bowled a very tidy spell, taking two wickets in his two overs, one of them a sharp stumping by Steve Potter, the other, a good catch on the boundary by Ant. Paul Chick also had a stumping when Steve saw off Om, one of Broadstone’s youngsters, before Roger accounted for Cam, well caught by Colin.

Another of Broadstone’s younger contingent, Sol settled in and together with the more mature Jerry, put on some very useful runs, with Sol taking a particular liking to Peter’s bowling. Sol eventually fell to a great running catch by Chris on the longer boundary. Ejaz, the 10 year old son of opener Lal, saw out the last couple of overs, and thankfully that slowed the scoring rate somewhat with Broadstone closing on a challenging 175. Jerry top scored for Broadstone with a solid 44 runs.

175 seemed a formidable total as Outcasts began their reply with Dave Buckle and Chris Truesdale opening. Broadstone had a number of young and pretty quick bowlers, and it wasn’t long before Dave fell to quick bowler Jai, bringing Tony Williams to the middle. Chris was continuing the excellent batting form he’d been showing throughout the season, timing the ball beautifully and finding the boundary at regular intervals. Meanwhile, Tony was playing an invaluable supporting role, and the pair had put on 72 runs before Tony was caught behind off his glove. The Outcasts’ score was being helped along by an unusually large number of byes, which were eventually to play a major part in the game.

Eric joined Chris, and soon showed the kind of batting form that would be very welcome in our midweek games, and not just on tour! This pair put on a brisk 56, putting the Outcasts in a very strong position, before Chris had to retire, having reached an excellent 51, with 36 of them coming in boundaries.

Peter came and went fairly quickly, leaving Colin to accompany Eric towards the total. Eric was eventually bowled by Jai for a valuable but jug-shy 47 with the score on 159, followed on the same total by Colin. Surely Outcasts couldn’t blow it from here? No danger, Paul Mooney saw us safely to the total with two fours and a six in an over to win it by six wickets with more than three overs to spare. The rain was starting to fall, so Paul’s flourish came just in time. Extras had contributed an amazing 50 runs to the total, with 39 of them coming in byes!

So a very successful end to the cricketing aspect of the tour with what turned out to be a fairly comfortable win in a competitive match against a sociable and welcoming set of opponents.

Man of the Match – Chris Truesdale for his match winning innings

Champagne moment – Chris again, for his fine running catch on the boundary
