Bromsgrove CC X 265-5 in 40 overs
A blustery cold old afternoon saw the Doms enter the first game of the season, two games already called off through wet grounds saw this match faltering when visitors Earslwood CC failed to find 11 players. Luckily Banners rounded up a strong looking Bromsgrove XI and a match was on.
The Boars lads batted first and the score raced along, Kumar bowling a good first spell but Last a tad expensive. After 10 overs it was 49-0. Wilkinson and Dwyer put on 100 in the 18th over with Wilko retiring on 53no followed shortly by Dwyer retiring on 51no.
Pedders got the Doms first 2016 season wicket bowling Wyers for 10. Runs and wickets came at an even pace and the innings closed at 5-265. Both sets of players were keen to get out of the wind and enjoy a traditional Doms tea.
Davidge and Adams got stuck in providing a platform. Connor Adams retiring on 50 not out followed shortly by Davidge retiring after 50 dot balls for an unbeaten 18.
Pedders up the run rate with a 29 ball 50 before retiring but with the overs running out Hodgson and Adie shut up shop and the Doms innings was complete at 3-165.
Given the weather it was great to get back out on the green stuff and it proved useful match for both sets of players getting some useful overs in with bat and ball.
Man of the Match: Pedders, 50no 1 wicket a catch and some top fielding.
