Another 20/20 win...
Well there was much thought that this match would suffer from the constant rain and drizzle of the past few days but the Bromsgrove grounds men have come up trumps again. Outfield a tad damp but other than that it was ok to play on.
The Doms had a strong 11, even Justin Anstey turned out. The Doms were playing Old Eds, from past memories we have been under the cosh a few times down at Ash Lane. Perry lost the toss and the visitors decided to bat in good sunny light.
Perry and Last took the new ball and settled in to a line and length that kept the batsmen in check. Perry bowled two overs for 7 runs and Last bowled his allocation for 19. Martin Brookes replacing Perry struck in his first over with Perry catching the opener Tovey for 11. OEFW 1-23 off 5.
After 8 overs OEFW were restrained to 1-33 by tight bowling and keen fielding. Brookes then goes lame and is taken out of the attack with 1-6 off two overs. Pedders into his stride going up hill and keeping things tight whilst Dan Brookes serenely glided down hill. Dan took the second wicket a good catch by Steve Martin, 2-46 off 10. Pedley then strikes in the 13th and 15th overs and the OEFW were struggling to make a good score at 4-74 off 15.
Old Eds failed to push the score on and with Harry Smith keeping the runs down the visitor struggled to 109-6 off their 20 overs. With the short leg side boundary they looked about 70 runs short of making a game of it.
Martin and Pedley opened for the Doms and the comparison between the two sides approach to the game was plain to see with 31 coming off the first 4 overs the Doms were bossing the game. Martin playing the aggressive role as Pedders played with controlled ease.
It was much of a surprise when the score was on 57 off 6 overs that Pedders was caught out. This was just a minor blip as Smith strode in and continued the Doms onslaught. Steve martin completed a well judged 50. Good to see him kiss the badge.
It was just a matter of time and with the scores level Harry Smith smacked the next ball for a six to get the Doms home with 8 overs to spare. To put the innings into perspective the Doms only scored 9 boundaries. Terrific running between the wickets with five 3s being completed.
An excellent executed 20/20 game by the Doms.
