On Sunday 16-june the Old Boys team showed up in Gärdet to play against a team of teachers from Stockholm, being referred to by themselves as the “Village Idiots” we decided to call them the “Stockholm Teachers” as a sign of respect.  Amazingly 7 Stockholm players showed up to play, given 6 people withdrew from the team the evening before it was an impressive effort.  They also had a few drop outs so it was agreed to play a 9-a-side 15 over bash in beautiful sunshine.

The Old Boys batted first.  After a positive first couple of balls we lost the first wicket with the score at 2.  There after we lost wickets in quick succession, typified with Karl running out Naga in a suicidal single.  We never formed any lasting partnerships until Jones and Karl came together in the xx over, and Karl and Wayne put on a solid xx for the xx wicket.  At the end of the innings we had put 114 runs on the board. Top scorers were Karl (33), Extras (30), Wayne (22*) and Feroz (15).

In the field, Feroz opened the bowling along with Naga and things were looking good.  Our bowling lines were good with only 2 wides in the whole innings. It however wasn’t penetrative enough as the batsmen got their eye in,  seldom threatening the batsmen and a part from Jones’s wicket there wasn’t too much to celebrate. That said, there was some marvellous batting by Brandon (49*) and Sam (27*) who between them scored 9 boundaries.  So in the end we lost by 9 wickets.


But it was a fun day. Even after this schooling we have tentatively agreed on a rematch on 10-August. Big thanks to Robin and everyone who made the day so enjoyable.
