On Sunday (8-Sep) the Old Boys went to Skarpnäck to play against the Village Idiots for the last match of the season. Unfortunately all the equipment didn’t show up with them. And a mad dash to get some stumps was made.  Eventually, and only 30 minutes late the game could start.  Stockholm CC had won the toss and decided to field.

The opening partnership for the Idiots between Sam and Brendon was looking threatening. With the openers regularly reaching the boundary and things looked like thy might get away, then James entered the attach took a vital wicket and stopped.  There were some stops and starts with wickets falling regularly but the score ticked along. Boosted with some big hitting from Ash towards the end as the Idiots batted out the others for 153.  Top scorer for the Idiots were Ash (39*), Brendon (32), Sam (30), and Chris (18).  For Stockholm Srikanth took 3-26, James 3- 28, Adyita 2-11 and Rajesh 1-24.  Note worthily Graham took 2 good catches, and Wayne behind the stumps didn’t give away a single bye and tooks a tidy stumping.  

The chase didn’t start  too well with the Idiots new fast bowler, Ash, taking one of the openers in the 1st over. And applying pressure so even though Stockholm keep up with the run rate there was a frequent fall of wickets.  A solid partnership between James and Wayne saw Stockholm  to 80 for 4 by the 16th over, when there was a a mini collapse we fell to 89 for 6 in the 17th over.  When Jeff and Rajesh put together a nice recovery and things were looking comfortable when the 8th wicket fell for 150. Just to keep the suspense the 9th wicket fell with he scores tied on 153. Leaving Richard and Aditya to bring home the win in the 27th over.  Tope scorers for Stockholm were James (49), Jeff (30) and Rajesh (18).  For the Idiots bowling saw Ash (3-23), Sam (3-22), Brendon (3-36) and Chris (1-32) take wickets.

Perhaps the highlight for the author (given his run less and wicket less day) was that after the game the Village Idiots got their BBQ going and both the teams could finish the season with a drink and a burger.
