Old Fallopians v Masiha

Tuesday 14 May 2013, Victoria Park
Match abandoned (bad light)

Old Fallopians lost the toss and were put into bat

Old Fallopians: 111 for 3 in 16 overs
Will Hopson-Hill 50*
Mark Scoltock 16
Jimmy 4-0-26-1 Kash 3-0-24-1 Harry 2-0-12-1

Masiha: 57 for 5 in 11 overs
Jimmy 17*
Tim Castle 4-0-10-4 Sam Berkson 3-0-13-1


The only match played at Victoria Park on a relentlessly wet night on the vast stretches of Pitch 3.

Will Hopson-Hill kicked off the Old Fallopians innings with a 4 driven through point and continued in that style till he reached an unbeaten 50.

Masiha were otherwise able to keep a lid on the scoring, with Mark Scoltock the only other batter to reach double figures (16), behind extras on 22.

The Fallopians reached 16 overs only three wickets down on 111 – a target normally well within Masiha’s reach.

However ... four of Masiha’s openers got themselves bowled by heaving across a succession of slow but straight deliveries from Tim Castle, with Sam Berkson’s sharp shooters also taking an early wicket.

A change of the ball – swollen with rainwater – after the third dismissal (and some discussion) brought Masiha little comfort as the wickets continued to tumble, but then they settled their innings and by the end of the 11th over they were on 57 for 5 – on the ropes, though not without hope.

But by this stage the sky was so overcast the batsmen appealed for light and the match was abandoned.

Points and honours shared, but a frustrating end for both sides, after enduring the elements for so long with no reward.
