Hey another nice sunny day, after the previous days downpour the Doms were pleased that the Bromsgrove grounds staf had produced such a good strip. The visitors were the Beaumont boys who decided to ignore the 1pm start and left the hosts kicking their heels.

Well the visitors were put into bat and expected that the 10 Doms men would struggle to match their strength and must have expected another big win as they did in June.

Stu Rich having a first run out looked keen and eager. Well keen and eager to get hold of Last's HB2 and set about the scoring. Last still sidelined by a ladder mishap eased himself into the role of scorer. Three father and son combinations in the Doms 10, the latest pairing are the Searle's Josh and Clive.

We even had a visit from Rolex down for the weekend, still looking cool with his unshaven look and smooth dress sense. Good to see him again.

To the game, Pedro up hill and Srini down the slope. Pedro was first to strike in the 8th over when Davidge took the first of his four catches removing Percival for 11 with the score on 30. The visitors found it hard to score and in 11th over with the score on 59 Hall was bowled by Martin Brookes.

With Josh Searle bowling uphill he tuned the screw on the visitors by taking two wickets in the 20th over, so at drinks 4-73 the Doms were edging it. The bowling needed to be kept tight if the visitors deep batting lineup were to be restricted.

In the second period of the visitors innings the Doms bowlers continued to keep things tight and took wickets at regular intervals, with some good catching and a super run out by Pedro the wickets kept tumbling with Dan Brookes taking the last wicket in the 37th over with the score on 144. All the bowlers contributed with the Brookes boys and Josh taking 7 wickets between them.

Tea was taken. This appears at tea...

So just where is the graceful placing of some green salad leaves? the odd sliced tomato or cucumber, words fail the Roving Reporter. Shakes head in despair. The Srini's vegetable samosa's were a treat but it was a BIG failure by Tank's noodles....

Tea over the Doms faced a run chase of 145 to win.

Tank wanting to make up for the duck he scored against the visitors in June and the bombing of the noodles was straight into his stride, lashing the ball to the boundary off the back foot whenever the ball was short. Some 27 balls he faced in reaching 38 when he mistimed a ball and was caught in the 9th over. This laid the platform for the other batsmen to work on. It was not all plain sailing, the Beaumont boys bowled well and made the batsmen work hard for the runs. in 19th over Davidge was out for 16 with the score on 72.

After drinks the Doms went through a 7 over period only scoring 9 runs. But then Martin Brookes kept the runs flowing until he was out with his score on 31, the Doms team total on 4-123, still needing 24. But Josh Searle leathered the ball around and got the Doms over the line with 20 balls to spare. Josh ending up on 30 no.

A great win for the Doms, three in a row and loosing only 7 wickets in the process.

Player of the match: Perry, Martin Brookes and Josh all deserved the MOM award but all ten players contributed so well the MoM goes to all ten players.

Dropped Catches: Searle C -1 Brookes M-1 Hunt C-1 Running Total -39
