|Match: Old Doms lost by 68 runs|
Well a game at some point the Doms team thought they were on top. The visitors were the Beaumont boys from over Stourbridge way.. Nice sunny day for cricket and a good crowd had turned up. Pedro tossed well again and the visitors skipper calling wrong. The Doms would bowl. The Doms included two new Bromsgrove boys Aiden and Harry.
Well the Doms got off to a flier....the visiting batsmen couldn't lay a bat on Srini's 8 overs and a claimed 3 great wickets. Pedro ably assisted in picking up a wicket in his first spell.
At drinks the Doms were well on top with the visitors 75-5 off 20. And by the 30th over they were 7-118. But the lower order all batsmen played well, so well that numbers 6,7,8,9 put on 136 runs and finally eked out a very competitive 171-8. The Doms fielding was good and the new boys looked very keen and secure, both took good catches. The Doms suffered from not having a sixth bowler.
Tea was taken, a good tea with Srini's chicken things going down well. Sadly Pickles presentation continues to need improvement.
Well the score of 172 to win was gettable but the Doms batting needed to be at its best. Sadly it was a shocking batting display, only Davidge and Pedro can hold their heads high. They scored 55 between them supported by 32 extras. Shocking shot selection against some good bowling, particularly Stato's...awful.
The Doms innings ended on 103-7 off 40 overs. This 'women' thing is certainly affecting some players performances....
A game to be forgotten. The Doms were well beaten by the visitors, a well drilled team who could all bat.
