It was an overcast Saturday afternoon and after a wet week condition’s looked perfect for bowling. Old Woking won the toss and elected to bowl first. It looked an excellent decision after the 4th ball of the innings as Dean Stenning was on a hat-trick after dismissing Launder and Brown both for zero. This gave old Woking a lot of confidence as the number 4 batsmen came to the crease in the first over. Due to some accurate bowling from Tim Dalton the batsmen struggled to score for the next few overs. Slowly as the weather warmed up the wicket seemed easier to play on and a partnership between O. Davies and A. Drake began to build as they moved to 60-2. Then Abilash Panicker produced an excellent delivery to bowl Drake, this brought in N. Cooper who stuck with O. Davies until Panicker again produced a surprising delivery which had Davies caught behind for a well-played 41.
This lead to the introduction of Foster who struck a fast flowing 36, which with Cooper scoring freely at the other end piled the pressure on Old Woking. Eventually Sirman (1-48), bowled Foster. As the innings continued Cooper began to take the game away from Old Woking scoring a fantastic 111, Stenning eventually bought his innings to an end having him caught by Sirman but not before he had helped East Horsley mount an excellent total. With help from the numbers 7 and 8 East Horsley declared on a fine total of 261-6 after 42 overs.
Old Woking began their innings in a similar vain to East Horsley as Collin was dismissed for 4 in the first over. This began a shocking collapse as the next 8 batsmen were dismissed for 19 runs in 15 overs including 5 batsmen scoring 0, leaving Old Woking on the embarrassing total of 26-9. This was due to fine spells from Launder and T. Drake who finished with figures of 5-20 off 10 overs and 2-18 off 9 overs respectively. At this point Old Woking believed the game would finish quickly with a thunderous defeat and their worst batting performance of the season so far. However, there was a fantastic last wicket partnership of 107 between Adam Mascarenhas who struck a hard hitting 74 not out and Abilash Panicker who anchored the partnership and stuck with Mascarenhas with a well worked 15. This enabled Old Woking to achieve a more slightly more respectable 133 all out as Panicker was caught behind off R. Brown with 15 overs to go. This secured an easy win for East Horsley.
