Dulwich Cricket Club all rounder Richard King was the star of the show for the second game in succession on Saturday, this time proving deadly with the ball rather than the bat.
Last week the News reported that King’s knock of 79 was critical in the clubs big win against Farnham in the Travelbag Surrey Championship.
Last Saturday King starred once again, this time with ball in hand, as he took six Chessington wickets for 29 runs as the Southwark side picked up a 51 run victory.
Dulwich batted first at the weekend and scored 196 for eight in their 50 overs with Henry Hazlewood top scoring with 63 runs off 116 balls.
The Dulwich top order, including King who only scored six runs, largely misfired with the exception of Hazlewood but the middle and lower order provided enough support for Dulwich to post a more than reasonable target.
In a role reversal Chessington’s top order put in a much better shift than their opposition and with the score on 106/4 it appeared the home side may chase down their target. But King tore through the Chessington batting line up, supported by Kamran Munawar, Alexander Gledhill, Salaar Waqar and Ed Stolle who took a wicket apiece, to secure a big win for the Southwark side.
