      Match: Old Doms won by 6 wickets      

The final 20/20 slog of the season faced the Doms on an premature autumnal evening down at Richmond Hill in leafy Harbourne for a match against our our old chums the Sportsman. Given the potential lack of light it was agreed to a 15 overs per side match. It was a good decision as both teams had good light to complete their innings.

With both weekend and midweek captains deciding to drop down to umpiring roles the greatness was thrust upon Last to captain the side, and as one player Tweeted time to put his money where his mouth was..

Well the toss was lost, the hosts decided to bat on a damp wicket that played reasonably well throughout the match. Adie and Last opened with Adie bowling an excellent 3 over spell for a meagre 10 runs. Last bowling down hill suffered the 'short chip shot boundary' as Jonney took 2 sixes off his first over and his first two went for 18 runs although in his second over Simon chipped to Dolly at mid off for a neat catch.

Smaylen six balls suffered the same fate with 24 runs flowing off the bat to the short boundary. Banners and Pedley then took the next 6 overs of the truncated game and picked up a wicket each taking 1-24 and 1-20 respectively. Yarrington came on and took his second ever Doms wicket when bowling Patel for three runs. It looks like Yazzer is more of a bowler than batter and should be given a few more overs.

The host innings ended on 120-6, given the short boundary (14 of their 17 boundaries were scored there) 120 might not be enough.

Steve Martin and Dolly got the run chase off to a rollicking start with the first two overs going at ten a piece. In the 4th over Martins lack of fitness came to the fore and was well run out going for a second run with his score on more than a run a ball 17. The Doms were on track at 1-32.

Pedders joined Dolly and the runs kept flowing. Dolly was next to go in the 8th over, caught for 14 and the Doms were 2-70 off 8.

Ten runs later Pedders thinking the short boundary was to easy took on the long boundary and was well caught just inside the rope. Pedders 32 runs coming off 15 balls with 5 boundaries. The Doms were still on course for a win at 3-80 but with only 3 runs added Banners played a wafting shot more akin to someone who has never batted before. He trudged off for a 3 ball duck. 4-84 in 10 overs.

So 38 needed off 30 balls. Collins and Stato to get the Doms home, it looked like a close finish. Sadly for the Sportsmen Collins had other ideas and his final 6 balls faced he hit 61464 and a final 6 to win the match in the 12th over. Only 3 of the Doms 15 boundaries being hit to the short boundary with classic cricket shots being played. Collins ending on a 16 ball 39 not out.

So the Doms win their final mid week game, its always a good game against the Sportsman boys and we look forward to next seasons battles.

Man of the Match - Joint. Pedders and DC for strong batting performances

Dropped catches: 2 -Yarrington -1 Stato -1 Running total 70
