Saturday Team Report V Sturminster Marshall – Away

Charlton Down gained another 20 points and remain unbeaten with just one match to be played next weekend at home to Ashmore.

In all the years i have played cricket i have never seen a team gain 20 points with the help of a roller obstructing the wicket! I received a very apologetic telephone call from the Sturminster Marshall captain saying that the game was off due to the roller braking down this morning and stuck in the middle of the wicket we were due to use! It would not move and too heavy to tow off or push off!!!

They had telephoned the league to explain the unusual event and had no other choice but to concede the match as they were unable to provide a wicket to play the game.

After all the rain that we have had over the last month it was ironic that the this was probably one of the warmest weekends!
