The Doms second visit to Dingle Lane the home of Dingle CC, a nice little ground in the middle of know where. A very nice set up only marred by the cricket square. Well it needs loads of work on it, its basically 22 yards of grass cut and not cut enough. In fact my lawn is a better cricket strip. The Doms were put into bat and there were lots of Doms batsmen eager to bat, "me Pedro me, I wanna bat".... well not figuratively but you could see the cogs whirling desperate to get and face what is by far the easiest bowling to face all season.

Well some wishes were granted. It was a lousy pitch, dangerous in fact. Even Davidge decided to wear a lid for the first time ever. For some reason the Dingle bowlers bowled consistently short and the ball ballooned over the batsmen's heads or into Chickins body. Not sure if they thought the Doms batsmen would hook and get caught but the overestimated the batsmen's ability to pull the short balls.

25 overs elapsed before the first wicket fell, Davidge bowled for a watchful 34 including a mighty 6 off his toes. Doms 1-118. Two balls later Dolly bowled for nothing, 2-188. Chicken reached his 50, failed to really acknowledge the cheering team mates or kiss the badge. Perhaps he realised he will not score an easer half centry. Even more remarkable he only added 7 more runs before getting out.

Baffling as it was but the Doms batmen were trooping on and off at regular intervals. Only Brookes Snr looked like he would never get out. and when the innings closed he was on 43 not out and Pedro 15. The Doms amassed 246-7. Admittedly the pitch made batting hazardous but I'm not sure if the Doms should have gone past the 300 mark.

Nice tea, lots of egg sarnies and home made cake, with lots of pots of fresh tea.

The response from the home side was less than competitive. Bowlers lining up to enhance their seasons wicket haul. Pedro bowling short clonked the opener on the Barnett whilst Srini picked up two cheap wickets before being rested after a three over spell. 3-2 and Pedro gave up after 3 overs claiming a wicket with the assistance of juggler Brookes. After six overs the hosts were 3-27.

Dolly put in a pre tour set of overs, picking up 2 wickets whilst Rich and Dan Brookes bagging 2 and 3 wickets respectively. These latter two bowlers bowled full and were rewarded. The home side bowled out for 42 runs and a 204 run defeat. Nice set of lads and place to have a cricket pitch but until they improve the square they will not improve as a team.

The teams retired to The swan and enjoyed a few early beers.
