Belstone v Datchet

Tourists struggle in the rain

Datchet Cricket Club from Slough, on their first tour for many years, were welcomed to Belstone for a 15 over, 8-balls an over evening friendly. They were staying at The Tors in Belstone, now run by publican Kevin Vogan who used to be the Bar Manager at Datchet CC for many years. Richard Drake’s opening spell (3-0-12-2) of very slow looping deliveries proved tricky for the visitors as they slumped to 30 for five, this including the dismissal of Berkshire County player Joe Thomas, caught at point by Jack Barkwell off Doug Little for just four. A partial recovery followed with Thienus Jackson and Ryan Doye (21) doubling the score to 66 before Jackson was stumped by Jack Hatton off Alex Jopling (2-0-19-2) for 23, the first of three Hatton stumpings. Andy King picked up two late wickets but it was left to very occasional bowler Chris Walpole to dismiss last man Gurmehar Sumra (11) with a smart caught and bowled, his first wicket in five years and only his fourth since 1993!

After Callum Edgar claimed an early wicket, bowling Matt Dennis for 9, Hatton and Ryan Dennis looked at ease pushing the score along to 74 before they both retired on 25 and 34 respectively. Datchet had the misfortune of having to field most of the time in steady rain but they persevered with two wickets for Gurmehar Sumra before Alex Jopling and Harry Bushin knocked off the remaining runs to give Belstone a seven wicket win. Joppers won the post-match ‘Most Entertaining Player’ award for a rain-affected stroke that saw his slippery bat end up in the covers and for his quick off-field reactions to cut off a ball that was heading towards the pavilion and the head of one of the visitors.
