Dulwich ODI v ATCC: 06/07/11

GREAT BRITAIN TRANSPLANT CRICKET CLUB V AUSTRALIA TRANSPLANT CRICKET CLUB

DULWICH CRICKET CLUB

JULY 6TH 2011

The second game for the GBTCC v ATCC for the summer was a One Day International to be held at Dulwich Cricket Club in south London.  This was an extremely special occasion for both sides as this was the side that David Hookes, whom the series’ trophy is named for, played for whilst in the UK and before he became a test player for Australia.

Despite an initially dubious weather forecast, bright and warm conditions were prevalent at Dulwich and the GB skipper, Mike Rice, won the toss and elected to bat. Rice had come back into the team after recovering from an injury and was joined by Biddick, Hannay and Kennedy (all on debut for GBTCC), Chillcott who had previously faced the ATCC in 2006, along with Phillips, Molyneux, Maroudias, Condon, Wollington and Mills who all started at Tynemouth.

This was a strong GBTCC line up, with the team looking to make a significant impact following the disappointment of defeat at Tynemouth.

  • A great effort from the ATCC’s Jake Williams as he collected figures of 5-27 from his 8 overs.

  • One stand out innings from the ATCC in the 68 scored by Steve Arthy which saw a good mix of power and poise in his strokeplay
  • A great team effort in the field saw the ATCC remain under pressure throughout their innings with Hannay and Phillips picking up the majority of the wickets with Chillcott going under-rewarded for a superb spell of left arm quick bowling
  • ATCC were finally bowled out for 179 as their innings came to a close in the 44th over
Final Thoughts
  • Following an ATCC victory at Tynemouth (which reclaimed the David Hookes Memorial Shield), a win here at Dulwich was a great rebound for the GBTCC.
  • Our most sincere thanks go to John Soldan and Dulwich for a super day of cricket and an event of great poignancy to all present. 
  • Again, we were graced with the presence of Robyn Hookes and her words at the end of the day meant a huge amount to both sets of players.  We remembered those we have lost – Graham Marsh, Ian Lewis-Jones, Chris Wills and Phil Walker.
  • The side has allowed old and new players on both sides to come together in celebrating their second chance of life and also to demonstrate the importance of organ and tissue donation.  Both sides showed wonderful team spirit and a spirit of competition demonstrated in the absolute best way throughout.
  • Both sides look forward to a return series in a couple of years – one recent development has been the possibility of a tri-series in South Africa around the World Transplant Games in 2013 – truly exciting times for Transplant Cricket.  
  • Our thanks to everyone who helped make these games possible – including (but not exclusively), Jeff Sewell at the ATCC, Lynne Holt at TSUK, John Soldan at Dulwich and Christine and Kevin Marsh at Tynemouth.
