TD assembled full of optimism after a hard fought win the week before. Among the team changes was one Park brother swapped for another – Nick Darby is alleged to have said that it was hard to tell given both have a similarly athletic build.

Captain Jarvis won the toss and elected to bat. Rumours were flying around the camp of a quick bowler in Claygate’s ranks and it became apparent that they did indeed have a bowler of raw pace rarely seen at this level of cricket. Brett Lee could have done with taking this lad’s advice on how to bowl quick instead of floating them down like he used to.

Mike decided he didn’t fancy facing the pace bowler once he’d warmed up and edged behind the more gentle bowler from the other end second over. Tez battled bravely before hitting the same bowler very tamely to point with the weak cut shot that if he is not careful will become an unwelcome trademark.

Jonners played one of the more interesting innings to have graced the Green in recent times. In between being dropped twice, he played some outrageous shots and raced to 48 while TD as a team had barely crept to 60. He had a great battle with the pace merchant, getting hit on the neck by a snarling bouncer before hitting a glorious pull into the road to the delight of the crowd. Sadly a 50 wasn’t to be as he tamely skied the ball to mid-off much to the fury of his captain.

Hamza didn’t last long and it was left to O. Park and Raj to rebuild. Despite his captain and teammates expecting him to end up hiding behind Nick the square leg umpire when faced with the pace bowler, Park surprised everyone by remaining almost in line and flicking him for two fours.

With the pace bowler off to have a rest, Felix went on the attack, hitting 18 off one over from one of the two left arm spinners that had been introduced. Park joined in the fun and soon TD had reached a promising 116-4.

That was as good as it got however. Park chopped on for 27, Felix departed soon after also for 27 and Weir got his first duck of the year. 116-4 had become 116-7 and the TD innings was collapsing quicker than a house of cards in gale force winds. Yet again left arm spin was doing the damage. Jarvis and Muller came and went and despite some good blocking from Bennett, when he was left with C. Dixon there was not much he could do. Chris’s innings was a delight, the highlight being when he played a huge swipe to the spinner, missed, did the splits and sank slowly to the ground. Sadly for the wicketkeeper and everyone watching he had not left his ground. Claygate then brought back the paceman to wrap things up. Chris shut his eyes and edged the ball through slip for 4. There was almost a pitch invasion the crowd were so thrilled. Next ball order was resumed as the stumps went everywhere and TD had limped to 135.

Yet again left arm spinners did the damage – if any are reading this please come and play for us, if only to give our batsmen some practice in the nets.

TD started after tea strongly, with Hamza getting a wicket thanks to an excellent low catch by Bennett.

That was though the only bowling highlight. Jarvis, Hamza and M.Dixon bowled well but could not get the talented opener or the paceman, who batted at 3, out. When they came off, the floodgates opened and the pace merchant raced to 81 not out, Bennett and C.Dixon faced with the unenviable job of facing two set batsman on a good wicket and lightening outfield were left with less than respectable bowling figures. Claygate won at a canter by 9 wickets.

Next week sees a trip to Effingham, let’s hope they don’t have any left arm spinners.

Throughout history there have been individual bowling spells that have won games on their own. Broad vs Australia (8-15) and South Africa (5-1) Curtley Ambrose against Australia (7-1) to name a couple that pop into this writes mind. At league level, we have found another…

The 2’s continued their push for promotion with a trip to Woodmansterne, keen to return to winning ways after last weeks result against Mitcham. So, with the sun shining, captain Natt lost yet another toss, and we were batting first.

Morgan and Robinson strode to the wicket, keen to take advantage of what looked like a good track. Unfortunately this did not happen, with both falling in consecutive balls. 12-2.

Farley and Neale looked to consolidate and rebuild the innings, with both looking untroubled by a pitch with a bit of extra bounce. Farley was looking good, quick onto anything short, but, alas, this proved to be his undoing, cutting the ball straight to cover. 30-3

Pradeep joined Owen and once again, worked singles and hitting the bad ball to the boundary, Owen using his feet nicely to their spinners. Now, it would not be a Thames Ditton innings without a bit of controversy. Pradeep, stood in his stance, looking at the ground whilst the bowler ran up and promptly bowled him. Pradeep argued he wasn’t ready, but he had to go. 70-4

The game was firmly in the balance, Woodmansterne bowling with good control and us trying to pick up the odd boundary. Owen eventually departed for a well-made 29. 75-5

Akash, Nav and Chris tried to be aggressive to the spinners, Chris hitting a massive 6 in the process, but both soon departed leaving us 94-7 and looking down the barrel. Spiler made his way to the crease and had useful partnerships with Wallace (off the mark with his trademark one-shot) and Skipper Natt. 144 all out from 49.1 overs, something for the bowlers to work with.

After what can only be described as a feast of giant proportions for tea, TD were energised and ready for the hunt of wickets. Except that it took at least 18 overs for us to show any kind of energy or attempt to win the game, and at 75-2 you could say that there was a good reason. A dropped catch by Wallace, a couple of misfields and heads were dropping. Drinks were called and Td regrouped. What happened next can only be described as one of the most dominant bowling displays this writer has had the pleasure to witness.

Spiler made the initial breakthrough, trapping their number 4 LBW. 93-3.

Morgan, who had toiled without much reward bowled the filthiest ball he had bowled all day, a short wide long hop, and the batsmen knicked off. Wallace with perhaps one of the finest catches (yes you are reading his correctly), diving to his right and plucking the ball one handed. 97-4… game on.

Skipper Natt smelt blood, he recalled Pradeep to the attack, and clearly angry from his dismissal earlier reduced Woodmansterne to 109-7, including 2 wickets in two balls. Morgan picked up another wicket and TD were now completely on top, and there they stayed.

Pradeep picked up the last 2 wickets in quick succession. 114 all out and Natt’s men had picked up the victory they had so wanted. Pradeep bowling 3.1 overs, 2 maidens, 4-1 in his second spell. Truly remarkable, with the last 5 wickets falling for just 9 runs. The TD train moves on to Merton next week.
