Badgers Cricket Club – Season 2024 Match Results

 

This page provides immediate access to the latest results for season 2024. The above links, and the navigation bar at the top of the screen, also make it possible to get at the running results and match reports for the other seasons since this web site has been in existence, as well as the results for the seasons back to 1959. Seasons prior to 1984 do not include information about individual performances since full scorebook details have not (yet??) been input to the database for those years.

The match reports page makes it possible to see the reports from all games in the current season, not just the current one in the section below. To get at the reports you can either select the link in the menu at the top of the page, or indeed in the text above, or click on the date and opponent details in the results table below, which should be a hyperlink directly to the report for that game.

My apologies for the lack of a report for this game, but nothing was written at the time and there is only an outside chance that anything will be

Statistical Notes: Jake became the second Badger, after Mark of course, to record 50 scores of 50 or more, adding a 46th fifty to go with his four centuries. He has some way to go to catch his old man up, and was already comfortably in second place having passed Pat and AT at a similar point last season. Darrell’s fifty arrived half a dozen overs later and was his 17th score of 50 or more (2 100s, 15 50s) and the 117 they put on together tied the fourth highest for the third wicket. It is also the fifth century partnership that the pair of them have put on together – a category that they were already leading ahead of six other pairs who have recorded three such together (I will leave it as an exercise for the reader to figure out the likely combinations of half a dozen Badger stalwarts who feature on that list, perhaps revealing the detail later in the season).

We play somewhat fewer timed games than we used to but this was our first win in such a contest for nearly five years (since Ottershaw in June 2019 to be precise). Only one bowler got to send down more than their normal limit of eight overs, with Billy peppering his 12 overs with some 61 dot balls. Sam was second in that category, managing 40 during his eight overs, and also captured his first two wickets for the club.
