Joel had prepared a hard straw coloured pitch which looked like a road, but we knew from experience it wouldn’t play like one. It actually played ok, with only a few keeping low, especially at the church end, and the odd one stopping or jumping.

 

The first over went for seven, and the score stayed there until the overs also read seven. Hakey and Tappers were tidy and they progressed slowly. Rob pulled a muscle in his first over (which could have been simply in shock at his first ball, which may have been the best one he’s ever bowled; pitching in line and swinging late away from the bat) so Andy, who hasn’t been in the best of health so didn’t intend to bowl much, stepped in for a frugal full spell.

 

They were 40-5 and looking in some trouble when a young lad (who it later transpired was playing his first game for them, and turned out to be their stand out player in all three disciplines) came in and started hitting sixes. We dropped him twice, once first ball, a sharp chance behind standing up to Henry, and once more straightforwardly off a skied top edge at midwicket. Had we not, they may have been out a deal sooner for a much lower total, but in the end they made it to the 38th over and were all out for 111.

 

The old cricket wisdom is that you can’t judge a wicket until both sides have batted on it, though to be fair to Ashford, it definitely seemed to play truer and come on better as the day wore on. And we had the definite advantage of the new ball, which this time kept its shine until the seamers were done.

 

From the other end, the only batting I could see was Joel’s, so I can only assume that the whole 22 over chase looked that chanceless and elegant. Must have done. Graham and Colin reckon the last Damerham 10 wicket league win was a quarter of a century ago back in the Dorset League against Bere Regis, when Graham himself was opening the batting. But that is not the most remarkable stat of the day. That surely must go to Henry, who has now won six tosses out of six. Sterling work.
