Regents v Old Fallopians 

Monday 3 May 2011, Victoria Park

Regents won by 26 runs

Regents lost the toss and were put into bat

Regents: 174 for 3 in 16 overs
Farmer-Carver 53*
Walsh 50*
Asquith 4-0-19-2

Old Fallopians: 148 for 2 in 16 overs
Ellis 50*

Losing the toss, yet surprisingly put into bat, Regents made a quick start, with CDM Mortimer striking two boundaries to go with an all run 4, alongside the ever solid Farmer-Carver. However, some good swing bowling from Asquith was rewarded with the wicket of CDM in the 3rd over.

Walsh, determined after the previous week's failure, started cautiously, but soon opened up, the highlight being a straight six, as he and Farmer-Carver converted their centuries. Regents lost a couple of wickets in the search for quick runs at the end of the innings, and a fairly large target of 175 to win was set. Salmon Jr. and Walsh opened the bowling, and after the early wicket for Salmon Jr courtesy of a great catch out of the sun by Garcia off a leading edge, began a great battle with the Old Fallopians' top order.

Ball repeatedly beat bat, but Ellis in particular chanced his arm and peppered the offside boundary with some superb cut shots and drives. Linay prised out the other Fallopians opener with some tight offspin, eventually frustrating the batsman into an ill advised charge, which CDM Mortimer converting a smart stumping, whilst Ellis completed an excellent half century.

With the target looking improbable and the light failing, the bowling was shared around, and Old Fallopians fell fairly comfortably short, to give Regents the somewhat dubious reward of probable second division cricket. An enjoyable match, played in good spirits, although a bit chilly with the wind. And no-one ate chips from a bin.
