With the threat of rain hanging over Stockholm Old Boys played a friendly match against the Village Idiots (formerly known as the Stockholm Teachers) at Granby BP on 10-August for a 30-over match. Perhaps due to the early start, the overhead clouds, or just bad luch it took time for the teams to roll in so thet match started 1 hour laters than scheduled.  Naturally Stockholm lost the toss and were asked to field.


In the field Stockholm were sharp. The opening bowlers Vijay and Adil restricted the Idiots, and we picked up regular wickets. And importantly that of Brandon early (as in the last match he scored freely). Jeffery, Santhosh, Himanshu and Wayne kept hings tidy. And if it was not for the missed catches we would of kept the score down. And their 5th wicket partnership lifted the scoring.  In the end they were all out for 160, the main contributions for the idiots being Arie (37), Slater (36), Rosser 24, and Brandon (17).  Adil took 3 wickets, Jeffery 2, Santhosh, Himanshu and Wayne 1 apiece.


The chase didn’t start well,  with Karl running out Pratyush on the 2nd ball (for which he is deeply embarrassed and ashamed). There were some nice partnerships, with Jesse and Karl  then Jesse and Shrikant moving the score nicely along so in the 13th over the score was 78 for 3. And then after 20 overs with the score at 119 for 4 things were looking comfortable. It was then that perhaps the pressure of the chase started to come in , two wickets were lost in the 23rd over with us needing only 16 more runs. Then the 8th wicket fell in the 26th to a fabulous with the score at 158.  And the following over we lost our 9th and final wicket with out adding to the score.  Highlights for the batting was Shrkant (55, 8 fours, 1 six), Jesse (31, 4 fours), Karl (23, 4 fours) and Wayne (10, 1 four).  For the Idiots, Rosser took 3 wickets, Brandon 2, Chris and Whiteroad 1 each.
