      Match: Old Doms lost by 98 runs      
         

Well it had to happen, the 100% start to the season came falling down to a big 98 run defeat at the hands of a good solid Lemmings performance. Again the Doms were short of players with Pedro and Chickin both playing through injuries, really sad state of affairs. Emails being sent out all week asking for availability, just a simple 'sorry not available' would be courteous.

So the visitors were our pals from down the road at Leamington, a good side to beat with a full strength Doms 11 but with only 9 players with two who were not intending to play all season it was always going to be a tall order.

The visitors went into bat and made steady progress against Last and Hunt. Doms new boy, Yarrington putting down a chance off Last at mid off. This was opener Trews first of four chances he gave the Doms but were unable to hold onto the ball.

Last bowled through without success and got a last over treatment for 17 from White, whilst an injured Pedro swapped with Perry after bowling 5. At drinks the Doms had kept the visitors score in check. At 20 overs the score was 90-1 with Perry bowling Trew for 21.

It was then hard work for the Doms as the Leamington boys upped the rate with some good clean hitting. White - 74, was eventually bowled by Hodgson, another player carrying an injury.

Ciderman and Errington continued to keep the score board turning and wickets finally started to fall as the overs ran out. The fielding was good albeit 5 catches were downed but a remarkable catch was made by Chickin running downhill catching a skier over his shoulder, a great moment in the match. At 40 overs the visitors had amassed 224-8, not a great score on this wicket but with the Doms limited batting resources plus the injuries it looked a big ask.

Tea was taken, a slight improvement worthy of its 7.5/10 Tea Index Rating.

So the Doms batsmen needing 225 to win soon were in trouble as the dependable Davidge holed out to the sixth ball of the innings, an uncharacteristic shot so early in the game. Worst to come. The innocuous Mancini got two more wickets in the 5th over, Perry going to a very good slip catch for 9 and Dolly out first ball. Doms 5 overs gone and 3-17.

Hodgson and Martin then staged a good recovery at great pace until Hodgson was undone by a slow full toss for 38. The Doms had raced along to 77 off just 11 overs when Hodgy was out.

Wickets then started to fall and it looked like the match would not get to the drinks break. But with the last wicket stand of 27 going well, dusk was far from settling on the home teams innings.

However, Trigger Perry had an itchy finger and the stand was brought to an untimely close as his finger went up to give a disputable LBW decision. The visitors had won by 98 runs, deservedly so.

The team will now need to regroup for Thursday 20/20 bash against Old Mose.

 Player of the Match: Hodgson for 38 and 1-31

Dropped Catches: Last-2 Perry-1 Yarrington -1 Hunt -1 Running Total -11
