Ipplepen v Erratics Cricket Club Erratics on Sun 08 Sep 2013 at 2.30pm
Match was Tied

Match report Ipplepen's total is unclear from the scorecard (the various totals do not match), but it appears from our scorecard as though we were chasing 253 to win, so I have called it a tie - does anyone remember this game being a tie? MH

I remember that I broke my thumb failing to take a return catch, which went for 4 up the hill, then bowling the batsman next ball. I also remember Chris Cook's brilliant innings - his acceleration was amazing. We needed a handful of runs off the last over, I was on strike but wasn't striking the ball well, and Chris Cook tried to get on strike by running when I hit the ball straight to short cover. I didn't move and Chris was run out. Then Varun must have been run out without facing. I'm not sure if we won or tied. I think we needed two off the last ball to win as I remember thinking that the only place that we might get a two was to a fine fine leg, and I think I did manage to work the ball there and get the two runs, but I might be completely wrong. CF

Another feature of this game was the extended tragi-comedy afforded by the unexpectedly long opening stand between McRae and Abrahams snr. Ipplepen fluffed about half a dozen run-out chances in the first few overs. CF

Another detail: I think that Suhaib injured his leg while bowling, then gave Varun his boots to bowl in. CF
