1st XI Win Again

A nother home game and another “relaxed” start to proceedings. With the start time earlier at 12.30pm for this week’s match against Marlborough the real question was, “how many of the team would turn up in time to start the match?” The smart money was on 9 players – no prizes for guessing who the 2 missing would be. With those players who were at the ground in good time enjoying a mixture of crap chat, football keepy-ups and pavilion roof real tennis, Danny Watts once again won the toss and decided to bat.

The brothers Watson opened up again and, with the aide of a third batsman (Mr. Edward Xtra, who batted well throughout) took the score swiftly to 34, before Danny Watts was adjudged to use an illegal pad deflect to left arm spinner Henry Painter’s first ball. Blazer (arriving surprisingly only 5 minutes late despite the early start – begs the question why he couldn’t arrive at that time for the matches before) joined Matty Watts and kept the board ticking along. However, in Blazer’s haste to get ready one of his contact lenses came loose and fell out on the pitch. Fellow lense wearer, Chalky came to his help armed with a fresh box of contacts. Unfortunately due to the breezy Broadleys conditions neither were able to slot the lens in and Blazer had to leave the crease, retired hurt (unsighted). Bear strode to the wicket and seemed to find his touch biffing a few decent hits. Matty Watts was soon out having made a Ramprakash-like 28, which saw the return of Blazer. These two then compiled the crucial innnings partnership of 100 with both players looking in fine touch. When a big total looked likely, disaster struck in the 34th over when both batsmen were out – Bear going for another biggy caught at long off and Blazer sweeping trapped leg before.

It was left to in-form Lodgey and the rest of the lower order to try and get as many runs over the desired 225 as possible. So to finish on 243 for 9 was a decent return from the lads.

At tea, enjoying new to the rota, Cynthia Bond’s scones the need for early wickets was discussed. That is exactly what Coxy and Jerm delivered. Pace, movement and accuracy combined to have Marlborough reeling at 45 for 4 in the 12th over. Whilst Marlborough promoted a few younger players up the order, the deliveries that removed the experienced Pete Day and overseas star Zwelibanzi Homani were top draw. With Chalky replacing Jerm and offering little to hit (1 for 13 off 10 overs his usual miserly self) Marlborough dug in for points, which lead to some Cook/Trott style batting. Wickets were picked up regularly enough (68 for 6 then lead to 112 for 8) Danny Watts rotated his bowlers looking for that breakthrough. Jerm returned to pick up another, smartly taken low down by Bear at first slip and Blazer picking up John Carroll caught by the running whippet Ticehurst at deep midwicket. Marlborough, well behind the rate and not pushing for the win, kept the Marshfield attack at bay with the last 2 wickets putting on 70 runs.

Finally, Burny – never one enjoy a match quietly – took the ninth wicket and then eventually with two balls remaining in the inninngs had George Fox trapped leg before, for Marshfield to claim full bowling points and record a comfortable win. Marlborough all out for 181.

Another team effort with all players contributing.  Marshfield with two wins in August – when the league is won and lost – making their push for the European spots!
