Another SpecSaver match with a little bit of Casualty thrown into the mix. To days match in the sun was against Leamington Lemmings.. last years fixture was one of the many to fall foul of the weather, this time the sun was out. The Doms fielding  a weakened side, brittle batting and no room for bowling problems. Pedro decided to bowl first and Srini and Pedro took the new ball. Srini again moving the ball like a banana and with his sixth ball he bowled White all ends up. There were some very good shouts for LBW, some mysteriously failed to get the umpires support. Hunt was next to take a wicket, when the score was 21, a good catch by Smaylen. Lemmings 2-21 off 4 this became 3-21 when Hunt had Tally caught behind for 0, a regulation catch for Hickin.

The Lemmings eked out runs and not until the 16th over did the next wicket fall, this time another regulation slip catch. 4-56 off 16. Then the stand of the match that took the game away from the Doms. Haslett and Brown put on 114 runs before Last had Haslett caught for a well constructed 84 but a number of SpecSaver moments helped him out. Plus a few dropped chances.

One moment during the match saw Pedro the latest player to be injured. Lazily getting down to a easy pick up at point, he took his eye off the ball which smacked him in his face. It was difficult to see which part of his face was hurt. But apparently he needed major surgery and he was whisked away to the QE, another statistic of NHS time wasting.

The Lemmings tail clipped a few runs and Last was particular disappointed a with some appeals which did not help the Doms cause to be chasing a lesser score. But that's cricket and the umpires do what they think is right for the game. I think.

Tea was alfresco as the clubhouse was under siege with wedding guests enjoying a beer or two.

The Doms started slowly with both Perry and Davidge finding runs hard to come by particularly as the bowling was very negative and erratic.  Smith particularly bowling leg side. But Smith was first to strike with one of the few balls likely to hit the wicket. Perry played forward but the ball hit the deck and never got more than an inch off the ground. Perry out for 2. Davidge and Brookes went cheaply and the Doms were struggling at 3-16 off 9 and the 197 needed looked a long way off.

Shaylen and Srini steadied the innings and were now hitting the boundaries regularly. Srini looked like a big inning was going to be accumulated but when on 26 he lobed a simple caught and bowl after the ball stopped on him. 4-56 off 15. Shaylen was next to go after recording his highest Doms score of 33. Doms 5-86. Luke Rowan was looking good and with Chickin moved the score onto 113. Rowan out for 15. The tailed failed to wag even with the critically maimed skipper coming in at number 11 the Doms innings petered out on 154 when Last was run out by an excellent direct throw.

Some useful performances but again dropped catches have lost the game for the Doms. 6 dropped catches, non overly difficult. The Doms now move on to the next 20 over sloggaathon  on  Thursday evening.

Man of the Match: Shaylen for a good 33 and and an excellent catch.

Dropped Catches: 6, Brookes-1 Srini-1 Rowan-1 Hickin-2 Sub-1 Running total: 14
