Well we had a cricket match on! After being dogged with lack of players and rain we finally had a match to play. Its was our old chums Westheathians. The sky was blue and the wicket was green, Heathy lost the toss, again and Pedro decided it would be best to bowl on a seamer friendly strip. Both teams only had ten players so it was anticipated that it would be a good match. Sadly as this report will unfold the match ended very unsatisfactorily.

Srini started down hill and soon had Butcher and Stock playing watchfully as the ball moved off the seam with Pedro bowling steadily uphill. The visitors  saw out the first  fours overs until Srini found the edge of Stocks bat and sportingly he walked as Davidge caught a simple catch behind the stumps.

1-6 soon became 2-13 as Butcher played a loose shot to Srini with Martin Brookes pulling off a sharp ankle high chance. 

But skipper Heath and Evans dug in and started to pull the game around until 2 balls before the drinks break when Perry bowled Evans for a watchful 36. So at drinks it was 3-81. Rich Winstanley didn't look comfortable at all and was soon walking back with the score on 4-100 after Perry collected his second wicket curtsey of a Hodgy catch.

Heath was still playing carefully and was ably supported by Dan until the 33 over when he went to drive Last and was bowled leg stump for a good 65. Three balls later Last enticed Dan to come down the track and was smartly stumped by Davidge. 34 overs gone and 6-142. Last was rested which allowed Dan Brookes to bowl a cameo two overs picking up a wicket for 8 runs. Last had switched ends after Colin Hunt mysteriously withdrew from the attack. Last cleaned up the tail by bowling out the last two batsmen finishing on 4-26 and the Westies score on 164

Tea was taken. The new tea making format was a success.

So the Doms needing 165 to win got off to a poor start as Perry's poor form with the bat continued and was out first ball feathering a simple catch behind. 1-1 off 1. The innings was only five overs old when a brief shower took the players off  with the score on 1-21. The covers came on but within 15 minutes the game was on its way again. Davidge and Hodgy pressed on against some average bowling and kept the rate above 5 an over. 53 off ten overs with Hodgy hitting some big shots and Davidge keeping the rate up whenever he faced.

Hodgy's 50 came up with easy and the Doms looked like they were cruising to victory at 1-117 off 18 overs. The Westie boys were looking a beaten team. Then unexpectedly the skies darkened and the light rain was enough to take the teams off again. With sunshine not far away and the wicket covered it looked to be a delay of about 30 minutes.

However, sadly the Westies boys took this as a chance to save the match with most of them changed  within ten minutes of leaving the pitch and even a few players got in their cars and went. Shocking sportsmanship. The rain had stopped and the ground quickly drying there was a reluctant pitch inspection by skipper Heath - who had already ready changed and packed his bags like the rest of the remaining team. His view the pitch was not playable and they would not be continuing with the match.

The sun blazed down on the ground with blue skies and the Doms boys looked dumfounded in their whites as the few Westies that did stay drove off to the bar.

Awful sad end. Just wondering if the visitors needed say just 2 more wickets to win the game if it would have been completed.

Well the Duckworth Lewis charts were consulted and the Doms won by 65 runs.

Really disappointing end to what was a competitive match.

Player of the Match: Hodgy again - 65no

Dropped Catches: Last -1 Brookes D -2   Running Total -25
