We it was nice to get a game on and also good to be playing a Bromsgrove Academy XI. Sadly the Doms could only muster 10 players but it was great to be playing against some very useful young lads coming through the Bromsgrove set up.

The Doms loose the toss and were asked to bat on a strip that had been uncovered so there was some moisture for the bowlers to exploit. Chickin and Steve Martin opened and with the fourth ball of the first over Bridge bowling from the very tall fence end bent a ball like a banana and Martin's stumps were laying around like fallen soldiers. Not a good start against an enthusiastic Academy. Doms 1 for 1 off one over.

Hodgy back from and R'nR session took a while to get going and the score struggled to move at any sort of rate that would set a reasonable target to defend. Chickin had scratched around for a 20 ball 10 before he played Downing against the spin producing an easy edged catch to DC behind the sticks.

The Doms in a mess, 7 overs gone two wickets down with only 30 runs on the board. Hodgy and Martin Brookes then started to get the scoreboard moving along but in the 14th over with the score on 92 Hodgy played a weak shot (fitness issues?) and was easily caught for a solid 64. With only 5 runs added Brookes went for 9 and the rest of the Doms batting line up could only muster a paltry 17 runs in 5 overs between them. The Academy boys had produced a good performance and had restricted the Doms to 115-8 off their 20 overs.

Dark clouds were rolling over the ground as Hickman and Mathews strode in to knock off the under par 116 needed to win. Hawker and Ladha opened with Ladha getting some stick before being taken off by skipper Chickin after conceding 21 off 12 balls. Hawker off after two and the Academy had raced onto 0-32 off 4 overs. 84 runs needed off 16, the Doms would have to bowl well to defend the 84 runs.

Hodgy came on and bowled a tight 4 overs taking the first wicket, Hickman LBW for a quick fire 33.  1-50 off 7 which looked a tad better when Pedro managed to sneak in a 8th over maiden. At the halfway mark the Academies run chase was stuttering on 1-60 off 10.

With Pedro rested the untried Yarrington was brought on and managed to get Doherty to hole out to Hawker who took a well judged catch, Yazzers first wicket for the Doms. The score was now on 2-75 in 14 overs.

Leading wicket taker Last was brought on as 6th change with the Academy innings stuttering and bowled a tight two overs and was then taken off not to be required again. Funny how batsmen are not taken off halfway through their innings and bowlers are. Can you imagine "right Hodgy you've faced 12 balls off you come".

So it was left to death bowlers Martin, Hawker and Pedro to bowl the remaining 5 overs with the Academy needing 35 runs with 8 wickets in hand.

Nine came off Hawkers final 2 overs and Steve Martin conceding 18 off two. There were two great pieces of fielding run outs by Hawker and Brookes to add to the tension. This now left Pedro to bowl six balls and not conceding more than 7. Sadly Banners slogged and top edge for 4 off the penultimate ball to see the Academy home by 6 wickets and one ball spare.

A good effort by the Doms in the field which nealry saw them home. Perhaps 20 runs light in setting a target and loose bowling at times.

Man of the Match - Hodgy for his 64 runs.

Dropped catches: 2 -Kman-1 Chickin-1 Running total 68
