|Result||Southwick Wanderers won by 152 Runs|
In a match that no-one knew about, and cared even less for, it has been reported that Baker Will and Baker Joe terrified the opposition with a display of batting and bowling the likes of which we have never seen before- and doubtless won’t see again.
As Lukey wasn’t present, one of the brothers probably won the toss and decided to bat. With a display of amazing stroke play, that nobody was there to witness, the boys took the hapless opponents apart in a blistering forty over thrash.
At 300-0 the innings closed and the opposition took to the field.
Both brothers took five wickets. Although one might ask why it took them so long as they had to umpire for themselves and the crease was vacant throughout.
With the score on 148, and our Will finally managing to bowl a straight one, the innings came to a close. Both the boys shook hands with eleven clumps of thin air and the season finally ended again.
The scorecard below is a reflection of this historical game, although alas it is too late for the averages.
Darwin the Dog is most miffed at gaining second place in the ‘man of the match’ stakes but it was felt that Junior deserved the top slot as he needs cheering up after his recent operation.
The match reaches an exciting stage…
