Match Report:

The day started with a win and Simon took the advice of W.C. Grace, Michael Vaughn and no doubt his Dad and elected to bat. Collins was left to reflect on his promotion up the batting order as only 10 were taking the field. And so it started in a digital fairground fashion. Lots of noughts, a few ones and plenty of swings. As the innings progressed with more maidens than the Chippy WI Simon played a majestic off drive boundary.
At the next doubling of the score to 14 the 5 Ms on the opening bowler DeSilva card, was halted by a Simon single and this encouraged Webby who nicked a single to double his score. More runs came an it was progressing nicely when Webby remembered he had a ticket for Lords for next week and wouldnít be able to play so he retired hurt on a giddy 3.
Joe next with a single off his first ball but while contemplating becoming our second highest scorer, he left one round his legs and heard a clatter. He said it swung. Southport Jack saw off a hattrick ball before nurdling a single to see off the opening bowler with 9, 5,2,9.
Jack moved into second scoring place quickly while Simonís boundary count got to Jackís batting position of 5 when Jack top edged a catch to a backpedalling keeper
Bis started well but was done by what looked from the boundary to be an unusual decision, sadly as he was looking good. A wicket later Webby returned and was sportingly allowed a runner, second only to the sportsmanship showed when Kiddlington didnít run him out when he became injured. With a new life, Webby carved a boundary stunning the home team. Simon made his half century as Webby continued to move us on but looking pained every time he had to traipse off to square leg when not on strike although he did elicit half hearted LBW appeal from point. Simon was caught for a fantastic 65. Richard up next showed some good running with Jack to keep the scoreboard ticking over as Webby kept accumulating but was bowled while hurrying it along . Collins in next skying a spinning dolly to mid off that was spilled before he edged one for a boundary over the slip cordon. Some quick bye running saw us finish on a respectable and season best 128.
And so after what should be an award winning tea Deddington took the field with a sadly lacking bowling attack and a limping Webby. And so starting a batting display of rare quality. Nothing being offered but the slimmest of chances for players 2 foot taller or 30 years quicker. However due to the declining standards of numeracy in the yoof of today the No.1 batsmen was denied his century as he failed to work out how to reach a century with the runs remaining ignoring ex teacher Collinsís advice as he hit a four for the winning runs instead of taking two and hitting what would have been his 7th six. well done Kidlington for their convincing win and to batsman Dogar for his 99. Ice creams all round.
