Scorecard



Match : Stonor vs. Shiplake
Date : Sunday 7th September 2003
Venue : Stonor Cricket Club
Result : Stonor won by 2 wickets
 

Stonor and Shiplake played out a good-spirited, entertaining thriller on Sunday and for the second year in succession Stonor pulled off a tense, last ball

victory.

Having been put into bat on a dry wicket the Shiplake openers put together a solid 55-run opening partnership in good time. However, once the accuracy of

Mark Lovatt and tweak of Olly Nicholson were introduced to change the pace, the run rate slowed and the visitors sought to dig in. A somewhat mixed

fielding display then followed which, coupled with good running between the wickets, allowed the remaining Shiplake batsmen to pose a healthy total at tea.

The Stonor openers looked set for a good start until a wonderful one-handed catch by Lovelock in the gully started a superb spell of tight bowling by Bob

Bolton (7-48). In relatively quick time Stonor were reeling at 59 for 5 and requiring 7 runs an over from the remaining 15 overs. The stalwart Dan Fennell

then looked to counter-attack with the lower order and, although the runs came, the wickets also fell. With the scores tied and in fading light the last ball

cruelly evaded the Shiplake keeper and disappeared into the gloom for four byes.
