|Match: Old Doms lost by 9wks|
Well the Old Doms first 20/20 blast ended in a right stuffing by 9wks. The Doms eleven looked a strong mixture of youth and 'experience' and was thought to have enough to get the midweek games off to a winning start. The Old Griffs were the visitors who lost the toss and were asked to bowl first.
Martin and Pedders would open and the score was soon racing along with Martin hitting some big boundaries. At the 5 over point the score was 38-0. Although Martin was seeing the ball big Pedders was struggling to get the ball away. Shortly after hitting a huge six he tried the same but was well caught on the boundary. Doms 65-1 in the 8th over.
Hodgy joined Martin but with only 9 runs added martin was bowled for a very good 43. Although Hodgy was hitting runs at a good rate the batsmen at the other end were not staying long. Brookes, Adams, Banham and Pedro all perished with only 5 runs between them.
At the 20 overs the Doms had reached an under par 138-6 with Hodgy unbeaten on 60.
So with the light fading the Doms got back into the game not by taking wickets but by good bowling. Matty Banham was rewarded with a well taken catch by Pedro and returned with great figures of 1-6 off his four. Dan Brookes and the Johnson boys kept the runs in check. But with 6 catches being dropped and the light fading fast the batsmen were well set to reach the target. They reach the win in the 19th over with only one wicket lost. A great 98 no by Saltar got them home with 6 balls to spare.
A good game, but 6 catches dropped and a below par score the Doms handed the initiative to the Griffs who ably took up the challenge and won.
