      Match: Old Doms  won by 7wks      
         

After a run of two consecutive defeats the Doms bounced back with a confident 7 wicket win over AMS. A nice evening for a cricket match, warm and light. Nice prepared track that looked good to bat on. Skipper Chickin wins the toss and put the visitors into bat.

Adie bowling down the hill got success with her third ball as she got one to lift and Last took a shape slip chance, possibly inspired by the England slip catching practice earlier in the day at Trent Bridge. The visitors were made to work hard for the runs but there were some interesting bounces off the hard outfield that made a couple of the Doms fielders look at tad awkward.

Banham was next to strike bowling Pugh for 10 in the 5th over and the visitors were 2-19. It took another 5 overs and 49 runs before Clarke bowled Elliot for 19. Last and Adie returned to get two more wickets, Last tempting Bose to sky one to Hawker and Chickin picking up a regulation catch to dismiss the dangerous Dean for a well constructed 35. AMS were now 4-75 off 12.

AMS were unable to get any head of steam up against the Doms bowling and tight fielding and their innings petered out on 6-133 as Banham struck in the final over by trapping Downing LBW.

So a very good first half by the Doms. It all looked very good in the field, lots of energy and tidy work. The bowling generally was tight although 18 wides were bowled which obviously gives the opposition another 3 overs.

Stevie Martin and Dolly were given the task of getting the Doms off to a good start, sadly Martin only lasted 2 balls edging a sharp lifting unplayable ball to the keeper for 0. Not a good start to the chase. However Dolly had a new bat and wanted to see how far he could hit the ball and started off like a train hitting some classical slogs mixed in with text book drives. Meanwhile Banners at the other end played himself in and punishing the odd bad ball.

The pair kept the score board ticking over at the right rate. It appears that these two batsmen can divide overs remaining into runs needed. At the halfway mark the pair had moved on without giving a chance to 1-73 with Dolly hitting the bulk of the runs. Sadly two overs later he played a wafting shot all around a straight ball and was given out just 2 runs short of a well deserved 50. The Doms were now 2-80 off 12.

Chickin joined Banners and the pair kept the runs flowing against a spirited AMS side. Banners was moving seamlessly to his 50 when he played an outrageous shot only to be bowled for 49. Another disgruntled batsman trudged back to the pavilion to muted applause. 3-123 in the 18th over.

It just took Chickin a few more flicks of the wrist and the Doms were home and dry with Chickin making a useful 20 ball 27 not out which included an all run 3.

Banners 49 came off 45 balls and Dollys 48 tad quicker off 33. Two good knocks but failing to convert into 50's was disappointing.

The Doms home and dry with 7 wickets and 7 balls to spare.

 

Man of the Match - Joint. Dolly and Banners for two good knocks

Dropped catches: 0 - Running total 59
