Dodgers v Superstars @ Abbey Rec 31 August 2017

Our stunning victory by 135 runs over Superstars yesterday (captured live on Twitter) means that Dodgers have won the Ken Block Trophy once again.

Highlights from our innings were a powerful half century (ret'd) for Jatinder, excellent knocks from James Arnold (opening with NJ) and Dan Malins, and some bold hitting from Khalid.

Up the Dodgers!

Dodgers v Superstars @ Chiswick 15 August 2017

Superstars made 128 batting first which looked a tough but potentially gettable target. Shout out to Milind for a lovely spell in which he went for very few (inc last over) and was unlucky not to take more wickets. Also, welcome to Noman, a new recruit from the LAA and his leg spin which was a welcome change.

Our run chase initially started well with NJ knocking off a very swift 25 retired including a lovely 6 over deep midwicket. Sadly it proved difficult to maintain that momentum in the middle order with wickets falling at fairly regular intervals. A nod to Garry for his own 25 retired playing as a turncoat for us much to the chagrin of Superstars. We won't mention the (contentious) run out of JT. Was his bat down? Who knows...

Eventually the run rate of 7.5 runs per over proved too much for us and Superstars got over the line in relative comfort.

So the Ken Block trophy now stands at 1-1, with the deciding afternoon match on 31 August. Thanks to all those that played as it was a lovely evening to play down at Chiswick.

Dodgers beat National Archives @ Chiswick

Dodgers recorded a fourth win on the spin last week against National Archives in a pleasant game at Chiswick last Thursday. Archives had a tactical bat due to available numbers and due to a strong all round bowling performance we managed to restrict them to a measly 82 from their 20. Not exactly being well versed in low run chases we happily managed to pursue the total with relative ease and the loss of just a few wickets then retired to the bar for a beer or two afterwards. The game was otherwise notable for it being JC's first game of the season and it was excellent to have him along.

Scorecard details to follow.
