Third game in and the Doms have romped home...

The theme to this report was going to be based around the tale of Rip Van Winkle you know the story by Diedrich Knickerbocker (yes that's his real name, Google if unsure) about the man who slept for years and woke up late for a cricket match. But the story line changed with the dramatic abysmal catching of our teacher buddies, albeit Kath can hold her head high in that respect.

Well, another cold and windy day. A great day for kite flying on the Lickey Hills as Pedro won the toss, or rather more correctly the oppo skipper failed to call correctly, all Pedro did was to toss the coin and that wasn't his. Today's visitors were Sportsman who we played not more that two weeks ago. That was a close affair but the Doms line up looked much stronger so Pedro put the visitors in on a wicket tinged with green.

Srini and Pedro opened and soon had the openers in trouble as the bowlers balls were moving all over the place. Its was only a matter of time before the first wicket went down, surprisingly it was Pedro who bowled the opener in the 4th over with the score on 9. However it was not until the tenth over that the second wicket went down, even more surprisingly it was Pedro again, this time a stunning one handed catch by Srini fielding at square leg, sadly the teachers didnt take inspiration from this effort by Srini. Sportsmen 2-20 off 10 overs.

With the opening bowlers needing  breather Hodgson and Perry continued to keep tight lines and restricted the Sportsmen to the odd boundary. Perry getting a wicket in his first over thanks to a catch by Hodgson, a non teacher. 3-38 off 15. Both bowlers were using the conditions and the green track well and the batsmen continued to struggle. At drinks the score was 4-52.

After the break the Doms continued to tighten the screw Hodgy bowling out 2-24 and Perry 2-21. After 28 overs the Sportsman were in deep dodo at 6-77. Srini and Pedro came back to complete their overs, Srini 1-21 and a miserly Pedro 3-12. Sportsmen 8-81 off 32.

It was good to see Aide running in again albeit a little rusty who went for 23 off her 4 and Rip Van Hunt 1-21 who failed to knock over the final wicket.

The Sportsman ran out of overs and their innings concluded at 9-125. A great bowling performance sadly let down by a bunch of teachers with soft hands.  I do hope Mr Gove has  included catching in teachers annual performance assessments.

Tea was taken. Hey what a good spread. Sadly Hodgy bought sausage rolls and pork pies.... no home cooking in that household. And a bag of crisps... how the fck do you get on the list to provide that one..?

So 126 to win....

Perry and Davidge would knock these off with ease.. all was going well until the 7th over when somehow Davidge got himself out - yes Davidge was out having amazed 3 runs. Playing down the wrong line. Doms 1-30 off seven.

Hodgy, first game of the season, no nets but soon rattled up a 19 ball 30 with some big hits but was out in 11th over to a very weak shot. Obviously there are no teachers on the Sportsman side as the ball was held. Doms 2-68 off 11. Brookes came and went 3-70.

Well that's was it really, Perry smacked the bowling all over the ground... big strong hits and raced to un unbeaten 73 with 15 boundaries. At the other end Srini with a glorious 6 finished on 14 not out.

The Doms home in 18.2 overs with 7 wickets spare. A good all-around performance marred by weak catching skills by the teachers.

So now the Doms move forward to the first mid week game against Old Westheathians.

Man of the Match: Tom Perry for a good all-round performance despite a shocking dropped catch .

Dropped Catches: 4 Perry-1 Pedro-1 Brookes-1 Davidge-1  Running total: 5
