      Match: Old Doms won by 7 wks      
         

September, early autumnal weather, dry crisp and a tad cold. Jumper weather. The Doms entertain Fladbury CC in their last home game of the 2013 season. Hey the game was taking place on the main strip. Nice fresh track looking like it will give some assistance to the bowlers but also a 'get your head down and bat well' wicket. The Doms had a useful looking team, Perry and the Brookes boys back, even Stato found his fluffy jumper and braved the chill.

Pedro wins the toss and the Doms will bowl. Alex Rich and Pedro opened and soon were testing the Fladbury boys with accurate and sensible bowling. After ten overs the visitors were finding hard going with only 27 runs on the board. Pedro and Rich were rested allowing Danny Brookes and Colin Hunt to continue the strangle hold. Both started well and in Brookes second over he claimed his first wicket having Prudden well caught by Chickin 42-1 off 13. Hunt bowled well and continued to contain and in Brookes 5th over he captured his second wicket again caught behind by a juggling Davidge. 61-2 off 19.

Colin Hunt finished with respectable figs of 0-27. Perry and Last were paired up and Tank bowled aggressively picking up three wickets whilst Last picked up an odd wicket and somehow missed out on a second when the batsman top edged,  the ball going straight up, it only needed keeper Chicken to move one pace forward and wait for the dropping ball, Chickin looked around bemused and a quick thinking Pedro dashed 10 yards only to see the ball tantalising tip his fingers. Sadly a drop for Pedro. Tank finished impressively 3-28 and the Fladbury boys managed just 158 runs for the loss of 7 wickets. A good bowling performance and some good fielding, but also some very sloppy fielding. Last particularly suffered as dot balls were turned into four balls which led to an 'eruption' when another easy dot ball to gully was turned into 2 runs.

But that's cricket, what said on the pitch in the heat of the moment is forgotten when you go off the wicket. Well for most that's the case, some take it to heart and it then all looks so unnecessarily messy and childish.

Tea taken, hey not a bad effort although the welcome cup of tea seems to be of little priority to most. Very sad. Perhaps that should be the job of the Milk provider?

So the Doms needing 159 to win started soundly with Chickin carrying on from his 90 not out the previous match and Davidge in expansive mode. After ten overs the score rattled along at just above the rate required 0-43. Its seemed that nothing would stop the Doms chasing down the 159 needed. Well until the 18th over when umpires Rich and Last brought players off when very dark clouds started to empty over the ground. Covers on, all will be well as the players sat in the pavilion waiting to restart the match.

The rain stops and covers were taken off only to find that one of the cover hoses had been blocked and rain had seeped on the the wicket. But after a closer inspection the pitch was considered playable and the match resumed with 33 minuets being lost.

The score board kept turning over as the Doms amassed a 100 run unbroken partnership in the 24th over. 59 to win, 10 wks left and 16 overs to get them. Nothing could go wrong. Well it could have but on this occasion the Doms passed the required total with only the loss of Davidge for 39 and a spanking 23 from Tank Perry. The only casualty was Martin Brookes duck. Chickin again fell short of the three figs but the boy is burning hot as he again remained undefeated on 83. The Doms chased down the require 159 with 7.2 overs left.

A great win and with only one match left to play in the 2013 season the Doms are back to winning ways.

Man of Match:  Tom Perry clinches it for 3-25 and a quick fire 23

Drops: 3. Davidge-1 Rich -1 Pedro -1Running Total 68
