July 2, 2002 vs Dover Castle Lost by 111 runs

Full scorecard | averages | back to fixtures

Ninth nervous breakdown
Cutting edge: Nigel Bloch early in his innings
Cutting edge: Nigel Bloch sets up another defeat for the home side

Maybe it was  the rain. Maybe it was bowling 16 overs for no wickets. Maybe it was the prospect of the ninth defeat in a row. 

Whatever it was, it finally got to Andrew Wardle. Being captain of the league's least achieving side is no picnic, and against Dover Castle something snapped.

Facing a 209 run target on a dark and damp evening, Wardle could take no more. 

In an unwritten resignation, he put himself  bottom of the batting order at number eight, sending his now leaderless troops out before him.

Barrass, Stebbins and Shaw all made double figures, but Barrass's 34 was the highlight -- no match for the 133 and 60 reached by Dover Castle's undefeated batsmen.

By the time Wardle arrived at the crease the game was as good as over, and three balls later it was, leaving the ex-captain stranded on 0 not out and the Old Fallopians beaten again on 98.
