This week saw an inaugural DMS vs. AKA cricket match take place in the beautiful surroundings of Dulwich Sports Ground. It was a hard fought game, played with great gamesmanship…. and plenty of laughs thrown in!

Batting first, AKA scored 113 runs in 18 overs with great knocks from Pete Moffatt and Chris O’Quinn and contributions from the whole team. DMS threatened to get very close to that score, but with demon bowling from Joe Arditti, backed up by Pete, Chris, Adam, Adrian, Thomas and Ben, plus acrobatic keeping by Alex Johnson and some class catching and fielding by the whole team, they just fell short. Extra special mention to Zoe for scoring and keeping tabs with rather a lot of ‘wides’ and to Harry, who offered a Columbian spirit to our fielding.

Team AKA: James Jezusek, Nick Sawyer, Ben Pilgrim, Chris O’Quinn, Joe Arditti, Adam Kenwright, Pete Moffatt, Adrian Allen (C), Alex Johnson (WK), Thomas Allen, Harry Yepes.

Team DMS: Bob Thomson, Nick Lane, Kieran Brunwin, Nicolas Vargas, Viren Shah, Avtar Brar, Ajay Bangar, Tauseef Mehdi, Michael Petch, Nick Brown, Rahul Shah, Chetan Amliwala
