How many ways are there to lose a cricket ball? Washington must have experienced them all during a truly dismal afternoon on Barnes's tree-fringed ground in West London.
There was the simple lost-in-the-undergrowth loss; the gargantuan I-think-it-hit-that-tree-about-20-yards-up-and-bounced-into-the-forest loss; the I-can-see-it-in-the-brambles-but-can't-reach-it-has-anyone-got-a-bat? loss; and many, many others.
Luke Mitchell bowled very well early on and troubled all the Barnes batsmen, but skipper Sanjay (75) hit well, and Wash were completely overwhelmed by Zef who scored 182 not out, including 13 sixes.
Washington's reply never got going, though there were nice cameos from Nisar (21)and Clinton Dugmore (18), and Mike Egan who batted very well for an unbeaten 29.
