IPH v Stapleford Phoenix

Stapleford Phoenix v IPH, at Queens’ College, Weds June 12

Another close game at the wonderful Queens’ College ground (although the magic beer bell wasn’t working this time!). Ralph and Damon scored most of our runs and we defended the total valiantly only to be overhauled on the penultimate ball. Chris took two wickets in his first over and fellow debutant Elliott came straight from dental surgery, dripping blood across the pristine surface as he went. Such dedication deserved a more positive result…

IPH won the toss and elected to bowl
