They thought it all over

It was - wow!

NEGOTIATIONS went on between Clyst Hydon and Sidmouth before the game as to how best a televised football match in a far-off country could be watched uninterrupted around the cricket action.
Among the suggestions were a shortened game, possibly 20/20, or even an elongated tea break between innings. Both these were rejected but an early start of a full game was agreed to. It was all futile because an action-packed match was finished inside 27 overs, leaving plenty of time for a fine tea before a ball was kicked.
Clyst Hydon elected to bat after winning the toss and lost opener John Rhodes, caught and bowled to the second ball of the day sent down by Lee Clayden. Rhodes was one of two people at the game who were members of the first Sidmouth side to win the Devon League championship in 1988. The other one was at the scoring table.
New batsman Dom Carswell struck the next two balls for four and, with surviving opener Louis Marks, tucked into the next over from Wes Holmes.
Clayden's second over saw Carswell dispatching good balls to all corners. The pitch was obviously a belter which may have prompted Clayden to dispense with it and send down a full toss. Carswell missed it and was bowled for 29 off 13 balls.
After four overs Clyst Hydon were 50-2. Clayden was conceding runs but also taking a wicket an over. Holmes was not escaping the lash but he took two wickets with the last two balls of his third over, leaving the home side at 63-5 after six.
The next five overs saw a more normal cricket service resume with the run rate slowing as Supen Maligawe Sinharage and Chris Holmes kept Clayden and Wes Holmes at bay while scoring when a bad ball was delivered.
Holmes looked to be moving smoothly into the teens with a legside shot which was destined to bounce just inside the square leg boundary until Jash Patidar swooped low for a fine catch to give Jordan Fowler his first wicket.
Clayden signed off for his summer work programme by finishing his eight-over spell with a double wicket maiden for figures of 5-46.
Fowler ended the innings in his fourth over and boasted figures of three wickets for two runs. Clyst were dismissed for 93 in 16 overs.
Father and son Saj and Jash Patidar got the Sidmouth reply underway in similar vein to Clyst's early assault, having 37 on the board before Patidar junior missed a straight one in the fourth over. This brought Louis Adey to the crease and he accelerated the rate to such an extent that Sidmouth got the winning runs in the 11th over. Adey was 33 not out from 20 balls and Patidar senior's unbeaten 35 took 28 balls.
