Refreshers v Checkendon
27 June 2021
35 over game. Good game and a tight victory.
Refreshers 178-4 (A Gardner 55; Sacha Sandelson 51, Philo Wallace 33). Checkendon 164-7 (O Roach 7-0-2-24; E Faulks 5-0-2-30). Refreshers won by 14 runs.
Revelation of the game was that Sacha Sandelson (DA’s nephew) is now 6 foot 4. He is 17. Not only can he bat but he has given up leg spin (2 weeks before Checkendon) and become a quick bowler. He is pretty quick too and will apparently be opening the bowling for Bradfield 1st XI next year. His figures for this game were 7-0-20-0 which in a limited overs game seemed pretty good especially when he only took up quick bowling 2 weeks beforehand.
He is desperate to play as much cricket as he can when he leaves school next year and very much looking forward to turning out for the Refreshers throughout the season.
