Ten man Strollers turn tables with huge win at Chipperfield
posted: June 3, 2018
Having been roundly thrashed at Chipperfield a year ago, this afternoon we secured a huge reversal of fortunes, sealing a massive 229 run away win at their beautiful ground in west Herts. Having oddly been put in on a flat track on a hot sunny afternoon, we posted an immense 323-5 (possibly a Strollers record, we'll have to check – Ed) thanks to 49 from Ron, a lusty 40 not out from Viral and unbeaten half centuries from Nick and Gourav – both required to retire upon reaching 50.
In response the weakened Chipperfield lineup (in comparison to last year's XI) were skittled for 94 with only the Hogan brothers mounting any kind of resistance, both dismissed in their twenties. Our attack was ruthless, spearheaded by Tom 'Bowler' Harvey who collected a fine 3-27 from his spell of fast seam. An excellent performance all round and one that brings balance to this fine fixture. Hopefully we can do do it again next year!
