Sunday 1's suffer early season wake up call

By

The Sunday 1st XI were given a swift wake up call in their first game of the season against a strong Holmbury St Mary side down at Pixham lane.

Dorking's day started off well after they won the toss and elected to bat with a new look opening partnership of George Edwards and Tommy Chisman. The pair started off well scoring 41 runs in 8 overs before a lose shot from G. Edwards (34) saw him caught off of Morris which then triggering a batting downfall which resulted in Dorking losing their remaining 9 wickets for a pitiful 61 runs. Dom Kenway (26no) was the only batsman who was able to weather the storm with some very classy shots however he ran out of partners as Dorking fell for 102 all out.

After a very tasty tea break, Dorking were confident in being able to put up a strong performance in the field following their disappointing batting performance. Mo Rahimi and DCC debutant James Irvine opened the bowling causing the batsman issues but ultimately not getting the key break through that the DCC Cocks required. The introduction of the Edwards brothers as the first and second chance helped to slow the Holmbury inning with reducing run rate to just over 1.5 runs an over. During this spell the only two wickets of the innings were picked up by skipper F. Edwards who held up an end with 14 dot balls before a run was scored off his bowling. The fielding effort from Dorking wasn't quite up to the high standard that are expected however wicketkeeper Andrew Walker deserves a mention for his persistence and glovework on a difficult pitch.

Despite this Holmbury chased the target of 103 in the 23rd over with a determined effort from their opening batsman scoring 66 not out. Nevertheless the Sunday 1st XI promise to bounce back to in their next game vs Westcott on Sunday 5th down at Pixham lane.
