Full scorecard | averages | back to fixtures

Spun out of control

Stranded: Fred Barrass misses a Pat McGuinness spinner -- so did the keeper

They spinned, they span, they spun. And we couldn't hit them. 

Five (!) overs of tricky stuff from Grasshoppers 2 captain Pat McGuinness so bamboozed our finest wandsmiths (Andrew Wardle, Fred Barrass) that only 13 runs were scored during the spinfest.

Only hopeless keeping prevented umpteen stumpings -- in fact our air-swiping willow wavers survived all McGuinness's overs intact.

Our own ball wizard, Kit Wright, captured a trio of wickets for a more expensive 38. But we seemed powerless to resist the Hopper onslaught and let them charge up a 150 run target.

Jonathan Stebbins was an early loss -- departing after his first Old Fallopian duck. The remaining Fallopian strikeforce failed to deliver and we swished and missed our way to a disappointing 94.

Off target: Andrew Wardle completely misses another Pat McGuinness delivery
