Dodgers v Sergei Westhead XI 28.08.12

Chiswick
T20
6pm
Sunny

Dodgers went into the final fixture of the summer perfectly poised, with the season showing 10 wins and 10 defeats to our name. One last internecine affair against an opposition brimming with familiar faces would decide whether Dodgers finished 2012 in credit or in debit overall.

And we won! Sergei's XI posted a decent total, requiring Dodgers to sustain a run rate of 7 an over throughout the chase. We were there or thereabouts all the way through, until a spectacular surge from the bat of 2012 signing Sardar won the game for us in the space of one over (including a magnificent 6 over the long on boundary).

With a balmy dusk falling over the familiar riverside scene, both teams repaired to the bar to reflect on a season which July had threatened to wash out entirely, but August had redeemed. Cricket was declared the winner, and the summer was put to bed.
