About M.E. myself and I

My photo
Eastbourne, East Sussex, United Kingdom
I have been an M.E. sufferer for a long time now, but sports replay gaming is an easy hobby for me to enjoy. Originally from Canvey Island, Essex, I was introduced to replay gaming a few years ago, leading to my first purchase: Cricket World. Most sports I share will be common, but there are some more obscure replays thrown in. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy your stay. Feel free to say hello! - Chris

CW 1898/99 (S7), Game 6: New South Wales vs Victoria

New South Wales 10/12 vs Victoria 12/15

Sydey Cricket Ground

26th-28th, 30th-31st January 1899

Lineups:
New South Wales - SE Gregory, AL Newell, MA Noble, FA Iredale, H Donnan, ACK Mackenzie, VT Trumper, LW Pye, JJ Kelly, TR McKibbin, WP Howell


Victoria - CE McLeod, FJ Laver, J Worrall, JF Giller, H Graham, JH Stuckey, TS Warne, W Bruce, H Trumble, SA McMichael, AE Johns


First Innings


Inconsistencies at the crease saw New South Wales to score as highly as they might on a good pitch. It took a tremendous last wicket stand to get above 200, let alone 300.



NSW 324


TR McKibbin 92*; MA Noble 77; WP Howell 44
JF Giller 3-43; CE McLeod 3-94


With the first Victorian wicket not falling until 107 runs were on the board, the visitors showed the class that had near dominated the competition this year.


NSW 324
VIC 373


JH Stuckey 112; CE McLeod 63; H Graham 58; FJ Laver 52
WP Howell 5-115


Second Innings


A more rounded performance in the second inning failed to match their first innings total, and that left Victoria with a very attainable score.


NSW 324 + 318
VIC 373


VT Trumper 69; FA Iredale 52
FJ Laver 3-64; CE McLeod 3-86


A pair of fast wickets at the start, and again later on, did little to stop the champions sweeping the season.


NSW 324 + 318
VIC 373 + 270-5


J Worrall 104; JF Giller 66; JH Stuckey 62*
MA Noble 3-75


Victoria wins by five wickets and are the 1898/99 Sheffield Shield Champions!!!

CW 1898/99 (S7), Game 5: New South Wales vs South Australia

New South Wales 10/12 vs South Australia 10/10


Sydey Cricket Ground

6th-7th, 9th-13th January 1899

Lineups:
New South Wales - VT Trumper, H Donnan, MA Noble, SE Gregory, FA Iredale, RA Duff, AL Newell, JJ Kelly, LW Pye, TR McKibbin, WP Howell


South Australia - J Darling, FT Hack, C Hill, G Giffen, JJ Lyons, A Jarvis, JC Reedman, A Green, AE Peters, E Jones, AH Jarvis


First Innings


In a game New South Wales had to win to have any chance of wining the Sheffield Shield this season, records tumbled. VT Trumper's score may not be broken for a very long time, and NSW felt confident enough to declare with many wickets in hand and leave their bowlers to do the work.


NSW 498-3 dec


VT Trumper 220; MA Noble 122; H Donnan 83
JC Reedman 1-38


A resilient South Australian side defied the odds and even took the lead!


NSW 498-3 dec
SA 500


JJ Lyons 101; J Darling 91; FT Hack 78; G Giffen 55
MA Noble 6-130


Second Innings


Another fine batting performance from the home side would be worthless if the bowlers didn't shape up.


NSW 498-3 dec + 390

SA 500

RA Duff 129; JJ Kelly 70
E Jones 3-87; G Giffen 3-93


And the bowlers were just not in this game at all as SA wobbled towards the end but ultimately gave the title to Victoria.




NSW 498-3 dec + 390

SA 500 + 389-8


FT Hack 110; A Green 68*; G Giffen 68
MA Noble 3-99


South Australia wins by two wickets

CW 1898/99 (S7), Game 4: Victoria vs South Australia

Victoria 12/15 vs South Australia 10/10

Melbourne Cricket Ground

31st December, 2nd-5th January 1899

Lineups:
Victoria -JF Giller, J Worrall, CE McLeod, JH Stuckey, H Graham, SA McMichael, FJ Laver, W Bruce, TS Warne, H Trumble, AE Johns



South Australia - J Darling, JJ Lyons, C Hill, JC Reedman, G Giffen, A Jarvis, FT Hack, E Jones, A Green, AH Jarvis, V Hugo


First Innings


A devastating South Australian attack had Victoria on their knees at 88-8, but they failed to deliver the killing blow and found themselves chasing the game on a difficult batting pitch.


VIC 270


FJ Laver 116*; H Trumble 68
G Giffen 3-69; JJ Lyons 2-20


Half of SA's order fell for just 74 runs, but they did well to rally and come close to their opponents' score


VIC 270
SA 239


A Jarvis 58; FT Hack 46
CE McLeod 5-65


Second Innings


Victoria would not be slowed by the pitch on this occasion as they surged away towards their third victory.


VIC 270 + 423-9 dec

SA 239


CE McLeod 143; TS Warne 58*; JF Giller 57; JH Stuckey 57
E Jones 4-106


A mid-order collapse saw this one end less than twenty-four hours later as Victoria get one firm hand on the trophy.


VIC 270 + 423-9 dec
SA 239 + 264


JC Reedman 82; G Giffen 52
JF Giller 5-53


Victoria wins by 190 runs

CW 1898/99 (S7), Game 3: Victoria vs New South Wales

Victoria 12/15 vs New South Wales 10/12

Melbourne Cricket Ground-

24th, 26th-30th December 1898

Lineups:
Victoria - CE McLeod, J Worrall, H Graham, SA McMichael, JH Stuckey, FJ Laver, H Trumble, JF Giller, W Bruce, TS Warne, AE Johns



New South Wales - H Donnan, JJ Kelly, VT Trumper, SE Gregory, FA Iredale, LW Pye, TR McKibbin, WP Howell, A Coningham, MA Noble, ACK Mackenzie


First Innings


A solid if unspectacular performance saw Victoria pass the three-hundred mark on a very unstable pitch, but it's something they'll take after starting out 84-4



VIC 302


H Trumble 62; JH Stuckey 60
MA Noble 3-61; A Coningham 2-28


Another lead-by-example effort from LW Pye helped to avoid any follow-on, but NSW were certainly up against it at the midway mark.


VIC 302
NSW 255


LW Pye 93; A Coningham 48
H Trumble 4-82; TS Warne 3-51


Second Innnings

A much more assured performance had seemingly put this game out of reach as Victoria felt confident enough to declare at the end of day four.


VIC 302 + 367-5 dec

NSW 255


J Worrall 124; H Graham 110
A Coningham 1-48


A dramatic last-wicket stand made things more interesting than they should have been, but New South Wales still fell well short of the mark.


VIC 302 + 367-5 dec

NSW 255 + 355


MA Noble 111; A Coningham 48; ACK Mackenzie 44*
JF Giller 3-72; TS Warne 3-83; CE McLeod 3-87


Victoria wins by 59 runs

CW 1898/99 (S7), Game 2: South Australia vs New South Wales

South Australia 10/10 vs New South Wales 10/12

Adelaide Oval -

16th-17th, 19th-22nd December 1898

Lineups:
South Australia - JJ Lyons, J Darling, C Hill, G Giffen, JC Reedman, A Jarvis, HGW Chinner, E Jones, AE Evans, J McKenzie, V Hugo



New South Wales - ACK Mackenzie, H Donnan, MA Noble, SE Gregory, FA Iredale, WT Trumper, LW Pye, RA Duff, JJ Kelly, WP Howell, TR McKibbin


First Innings


South Australia once again open up at the crease, but this time through their own choosing on the coin toss. A very impressive start upon a slightly bowler-friendly pitch was soon undone as SA barely made it into a second day after enjoying a score of 224-2.



SA 298


JJ Lyons 101; J Darling 57; C Hill 54
LW Pye 3-52; WP Howell 3-93


A stunning reply, lasting the best part of two days, saw NSW surge into pole position.


SA 298
NSW 444


LA Pye 151; SE Gregory 63; VT Trumper 55; JJ Kelly 55
E Jones 4-121


Second Innings


New South Wales couldn't take advantage of their lead and would have to battle a South Australian attack of an increasingly degraded pitch in order to win.


SA 298 + 359
NSW 444


J Darling 114; AE Evans 61*; E Jones 52
WP Howell 4-88; LW Pye 3-89


A ferocious start had NSW scrambling at 36-4, but a partnership of 97 (FA Iredale + VT Trumper) was able to steady the ship just enough to take victory.


SA 298 + 359
NSW 444 + 214-8


FA Iredale 62
E Jones 4-60; G Giffen 4-66


New South Wales wins by two wickets

CW 1898/99 (S7), Game 1: South Australia vs Victoria

South Australia 10/10 vs Victoria 12/15

Adelaide Oval -

12th, 14th-17th November 1898

Lineups:
South Australia - JJ Lyons, A Jarvis, C Hill, G Giffen, JC Reedman, AE Peters, HGW Chinner, E Jones, AE Evans, V Hugo, J McKenzie



Victoria - JF Giller, SA McMichael, J Worrall, H Graham, JH STuckey, FJ Laver, H Trumble, W Bruce, GL Wilson, PA McAlister, AE Johns


First Innings


Victoria took the rare choice of putting in their opponents to bat first on a rather friendly batting pitch. It looked like a good decision as the home side fell for just 220 all out. Without a fourth wicket partnership it could have been a lot worse for South Australia


SA 220


G Giffen 86; JC Reedman 53
W Bruce 5-44


Victoria enjoyed a strong start, but may have felt their lead could have been bigger given the circumstances.


SA 220
VIC 318


H Trumble 88; J Worrall 69; SA McMichael 51
V Hugo 4-61; A Jarvis 3-69


Second Innings


A highly impressive showing from A Jarvis saw him last the entire innings; giving his team a chance of victory.


SA 220 + 318
VIC 318


A Jarvis 179*; V Hugo 50
FJ Laver 4-68


With the pitch turning in favour of the bowlers, Victoria's odds of winning were not as high. The middle order showed up this time though to take the win with some room to spare.


SA 220 + 318
VIC 318 + 221-5


FJ Laver 85*; JH Stuckey 61
E Jones 3-61


Victoria wins by five wickets

A Look Ahead to the 1898/99 (S7) Season

New South Wales 10/12 (last year 9/14)

The only team that can perhaps contend with Victoria on their day.

South Australia 10/10 (10/13 last season)

SA lack a bit of a bowling edge this year that helped them take the title last time around. Will hope to match up well with NSW.

Victoria 12/15 (9/14 last year)

An easy to pick favourite for this year!
