1XI Loss Against Yorkshire Academy

By

Sessay’s visit to Yorkshire Academy at Weetwood on Saturday saw them put the hosts in to bat and enjoy a couple of early successes.

Home skipper James Wharton chopped on to Stuart Peirse
for 8 with the score on 14, and in the next over Peirse himself took a well judged catch at long leg
to dismiss Finlay Bean, Joe Watson being the successful bowler. This was to be as good as it got
for Sessay on what turned out to be a chastening afternoon, for Matthew Revis and George Hill
began the Academy recovery with a fine partnership, taking the score past 100 before the 20th
over. The partnership was broken when Navin Kavikara had Revis lbw for 31 in his 3rd over, but
the hosts continued to prosper when Hill was joined by Harry Duke. Hill reached an impressive
century with some good all round stroke play, and the score raced past 200 in the 41st over.
Sessay then struck back well, first Duke was run out for 40 and in the next over Hill skied Tim Hall
to cover and was caught for 122. The visitors then began to regain some control in the last 10
overs as Matthew Till bowled tidily without reward, and Navin Kavikara claimed a couple of wickets
in his second spell, the Academy eventually closing on 262 for 7.

The Sessay reply began badly as the pace and bounce generated by Dominic Leach accounted for
Matthew Till, caught at slip, and Mark Jackson, caught behind as Sessay slipped to 11 for 2. Worse
followed when Mark Wilkie was caught at mid off, and a second interruption for rain at 36 for 3 in
the 15th over brought Duckworth Lewis into operation.

After a long delay, the calculations deemed
Sessay’s target to be 206 in 30 overs, i.e. to score an unlikely 170 in only just over 15 overs. With
20 overs needed to be completed in the second innings to constitute a result, rain halted play again
in the 19th over, but re-started in difficult conditions and Sessay were left to try and salvage some
sort of reward from an almost impossible position. Joe Watson and Nick Harrison briefly gave
hope, Watson playing his best innings of the season with clips off his legs and dabs through the
offside, but with the score in the 90’s, both he and Nick Harrison were carelessly run out, Watson
for 41 and Harrison for 25. With 155 - i.e. the 3/4 mark - Sessay’s only real hope of points, they
continued to attack with the rate for this target around 8 runs per over, but inevitably lost wickets
and closed on 136 for 9, well short of any reward, with the clock showing 8.15pm.

Sessay were in truth second best in this contest and 5 points from an abandoned fixture, although
they would have been very welcome and seemed very likely at one stage, would have been a
flattering return. However once again the Duckworth Lewis system did them no favours, coming off
for rain with around 230 needed at approximately 6.5 per over, they returned needing around 170
at around 11 runs per over. It seems you make your own luck with DL, and performances will need
to improve for Sessay to make their own luck and move up the division.
