      Match: Old Doms won by 9wks      
         

Second match of the season and the Doms turn up two players short - sad state of affairs. Anyway rain was forecast so the Doms might just get away with this one as a rained off match. The stand in skipper Last won the toss and put the visitors in. The same track as last week but much harder. Overcast skies and a fresh SE wind was bringing the rain in.

Old Doms stalwart Jonners making a cameo appearance was coupled up with Srini to open the bowling and get the Doms off to a good start. Srini bowling down the hill took four balls this week to get his first wicket bowling Bubna for naught and two balls later Callum Connor talking a good catch behind the stumps. Sportsman 4-2 off one over. Jonners bowling uphill into a strong breeze soon got his length and had the batsmen struggling to get him away. The third wicket went down with the score on 12 as Srini got his third of the match bowling Marwick for 5. 12-3 off three.

Five more overs went by before the 4th wicket when down, George slapping a ball from Jonners straight into the hands of Smaylen. Sportsman rocking 23-4 off 6 with a light drizzle falling.

Jonners rested Last came on uphill and with his fourth ball had the dangerous looking Tudor-Griffiths plumb in front,  5-36 off ten overs. Runs were hard to come by as Last and Srini supported by excellent fielding, with one exceptional one handed save by Pickles.

Srini rested after 6 and Dan Brookes came on downhill. The Sportsman lads put up some resistance but with the score on 59 Brookes bowled the dangerous Khan for 26 followed by Key and the visitors were again reeling on 68-7. Last ended the visitors innings by have Patel sharply stumped by Adams and the next ball saw Hussains off stump cartwheel. The Sportsman innings 75 all out off 17.5 overs.

A great first half performance by a threadbare Doms team skittling the visitors out in just over an hour. Was there time before the rain fell to win the game?

The skippers agreed to forego tea and go straight back out to avoid being beaten by the rain.

Morris and Brookes M opened and were pleased to receive some short pitched balls which were put away for runs. Those watching were waiting for and Old Doms collapse but it never came as Morris and Brookes played with ease and kept the run rate over 4 per over. Both batsmen's innings were chanceless and it was a surprise when Morris played and awful looking shot to get himself out for 29, but by then with the score on 65-1 and the Doms were nearly home. Smaylen smacked his 6th ball for 4 runs to see the Doms over the line with just the one wicket down and 25 overs spare. Martin Brookes 29 not out. The time was 3:30 the Doms had beaten Sportsman convincingly and the forecasted downpour.

A good game for the Doms bearing in mind only 9 players and two of them over 60 ! The team bowled and fielded well and both Morris and Brookes played with maturity in knocking off the runs.

However, the Tea needs more work on it. 7/10 is not good enough. Maybe its time to reconsider what we provide for tea. Perhaps culinary expert Tank could draw up a new tea list?

Player of the Match - No doubt about this one. All nine players, top class team performance.

Dropped Catches - Adams -1   (running total 4)
