      Match: Old Doms lost by 31 runs      
         

Right, the Doms played half of a great game then as its becoming all to often the other half of the game the batting was appalling. The Doms were playing our long time rivals and chums the Coftonians. We beat them convincingly last time out but this time the Doms fell 31 runs short chasing a modest 168.

Nice sunny day, so nice that even Fiona turn up to witness Alex produce a fine spell of opening bowling. The visitors  decided to bat first on a good track which looked full of runs. Rich and Pedro opened and gave little away, the first 9 overs producing only 31 runs. Pedro having seen Chicken drop a regulation catch was later rewarded when Tank pulled off a stunning one handed slip catch. 1-31 off 10 soon turned into 3-33 as Alex deservedly picks up two wickets in his 6th over.

The fielding was top draw which is a boon for the bowlers toiling away in the heat of the day. Colin Hunt on kept the runs down with his best bowling stint for a while, but threw a paddy when Dolly dropped a catch. DC replaced Rich and continued the good bowling and picked up a wicket in his third over with Stato taking his second catch of the game. Hunts good spell of 0-27 and DC's spell 1-34 kept the run rate at around 4 an over.

Last picks up Templeton's wicket in his first over with Stato taking his third catch of the match, 5-93 in the 30th over. Perry, battling pain for the team came onto bowl and with his second ball gets a wicket.  Sadly, Perry went lame after 11 balls and Stato came on to bowl his shortest bowling stint for the Doms one ball, one run..

The Coffs tail wagged a bit and at the end of the 40 overs their innings ended with a very gettable chase for the Doms of 168 to win. Great bowling and fielding possibly the best of the season. The crowning glory of the fielding was Dolly putting his balls on the line for the Doms... heroic stuff if not a tad funny.

Tea, not bad but DC's mum needs a lesson about her cake selection. The only other tea news is that the first thing to be done is to put the bloody kettle on and make the tea. Head shaking stuff, the food just needs laying out, the tea has to be made. Simple, not rocket science. First one there does it.

Right, the Doms need 4 an over against a fairly modest bowling attack. Only DC came out of this epic batting failure with any credit. He eked out 41 runs as the calamitous Doms batters failed with monotonous regularly. Shameful running from Chick, loose shots, no shots just awful to watch and so predictable.

Getting in and scoring ten or so runs then playing an awful shot to get out is not good enough. As the saying goes, there are those that can bat and those that cant. Currently to few of the 'batters' are getting any runs of note regularly. Nets and some coaching may be the answer.

The Doms innings ended on 137 when Last drove wildly down the wrong line when a sensible shot would have sufficed.

A good first half but an appalling second half.

Man of the Match: Difficult but DC for his 41 runs and 1-34

Dropped Catches: Chickin-1 Dolly-1  Running total: 39
