Welcome to the Streatham & Marlborough Sweep (SMS), a regular update of club news.

4s regain top spot whilst Women’s 1s extend lead

The 4s regained their position as league leaders shortly before putting on another excellent social at the weekend. Facing fellow promotion favourites, Beddington, they were indebted to a 125 run partnership for the second wicket between Ettinger (58) and Corner (70) in setting 187. Wickets were shared around, exhibiting the variety that captain Glazier has at his disposal this season. The other SMCC side topping the tables put on a dominant display at Dulwich on Sunday. The Women’s 1s bowled superbly to dismiss Dulwich for just 58 which they chased within 13 overs for the loss of five wickets. Kerins, Kent and Hanslal returned amazing combined figures of 16.5-8-16-6 which blew away the Dulwich top order.

The 5s triumphed in the “ampersand” derby against Chislehurst & West Kent with a battling team performance defending 160. Runs and wickets were shared around as the 5s closed in on the promotion places. The 1s posted their highest total of the season to climb into mid table and ease some relegation fears. Captain Davis (70) and debutant Subbhian (65) the major contributors in posting 242 at Addiscombe. The seamers bowled superbly, led by Nicholls (14-2-47-4) with Oakes (8.4-1-26-3) taking the final wicket with two overs to spare. The 6s lost heavily to Dulwich in a game we won’t talk more about and the 2s lost to the league leaders, Ewell. However, it was very pleasing two of our juniors, Kay and Khan, amongst the wickets for the 2s - hopefully we’ll be hearing a lot more from those young cricketers.
