      Match: Old Doms lost by 8wks      
         

The sun was up, the wicket was a pearler. The Doms had a well balanced side and looked to roll over an average Beaumont side. Pedro won the toss and decided that the Doms would set a target. Chickin and Davidge would set the platform for the big hitters to strike out and get a big total. The visitors have an average bowling line up, the opening bowlers are nothing much to write home about and on a batting track we made them look good.

Chickin out first for a 20 ball 3 runs, bowled by 'Swan' type full toss. Awful start. Doms 1-20 off 7 excruciating overs to watch. But hey in strides Hodgy and sets about the bowling with some gusto. In ten overs 68 was put on the board and 250 looked easily achievable. But Hodgy, for some reason not finding the middle of the bat for most of his innings then did and creamed one straight to point. Doms 2-88 off 17.

Brookes continued where Hodgy left off and battered the weak bowling attack around the park, sadly the most rank awful ball took out his middle stump when his score was on 30 off 22 balls. Doms looking edgy at 3-127 off 23. But hey still loads of batting to come.

Adie got in and got out for a quick 17. There seems to be a pattern with the Doms batting this season. Players getting in and not moving on to get a big score. As far as batting  the lower order failed to add significant runs. Davidges marathon sadly ended with him being caught behind on 49.

The Doms all out of 213, about 50 runs below par for the track and against some really ordinary bowling.

Tea taken, the mystery of what goes through peoples minds continues to fascinate the Roving Reporter. Given the 'and anything you want to provide to tickle the tastes buds' slot is the most converted tea selection allocation to get but what do we get, more fcking cakes. A fcking cake fest !!  Where was the inspirational English tripe sandwiches with a touch of mustard? Cakes and more bloody cakes.

Well the Doms stuttered on the batting front and provided a cricket tea with more cakes than you would see at a Mr Kiplins office party  what could possibly go wrong with the bowling and fielding ?

Well to put a gloss on this part of the Doms game it boarded on diabolical. Riches first ball sees Last snap up a smart catch only to be called no ball, the umpire said it was marginal. Well the opener never offered another chance as he went on to get 108 not out. The visitors openers raced along at nearly 7 an over. Supported greatly by one of the most inept fielding displays one could imagine. It was much like seeing a game of blind cricket and some mean bugger had taken the bell out of the ball.

The Roving Reporter lost count of the number of times a trusty foot was planted down to stop the ball as ones were turned into 4's with sad regularity. Last counted three such pieces of field of his bowling. Talking of whichthe only bowler to get a wicket for the Doms was Last, full and straight. Last's Index wicket. Visitors 1-74 off 12.

Hodgy put in a tight spell but sadly never got to bowl at his usual scalps of 7/8/9 . He ended up trying to spin the ball, 0-33.

To cut a long story of woe short the Doms looked ragged, turning  no run into ones and ones into 4's. Sloppy stuff. The only fielding magic was Pedro who run out Rands with a direct hit.

The Visitors sauntered past the 214 required with 8 wickets and 6 overs to spare.

On a day of warmth and bright sunshine the Doms had plunged into the depths of darkness. Shocking match.

 

Man of the Match: Not awarded for the second match running - awful performance all round.

Dropped Catches: 2 -  Boynton 1, Brookes 1 Running total: 43
