      Match: Old Doms won by 9wks      

The penultimate game of the season saw the Doms meander down towards Evesham to the pleasant village of Fladbury. A nice flat open ground with deep boundaries on three sides and a chip for six at the houses end. A big plus point was for the train boys Banners and Dolly in guessing what was hurtling through the railway cutting along one side of the ground, were they Class 66's pulling freight or 125's...?

With Perdo and Kath Adie also checking out railways (Pershore station) Last lost the toss and the Doms were asked to bowl first, which on reflection was an advantage as the track (see another railway term) was still a tad damp after Saturdays downpour and with the sun out the Doms may have the best of the wicket to bat on later in the match.

Dan Brookes and the mercurial Banners opened the bowling. The first ten overs had the host's openers struggling to score runs with only 15 runs being score. Brookes was rested and Banners bowled his 8 with no success but conceded only 22 runs.

Pedro bowling a very tight line and length caused the batsmen all sorts of problems and was rewarded when Sheppard was neatly stumped by Adams for 11 in the 13th over, 1-23.

Last joined Pedro and the runs continued to be difficult to get for the hosts, although Stokes took a liking to Last's first over which went for 14. At drinks Fladbury had struggled to 1-53. Hunt thought he had the dangerous Stokes when he top edged, Last got under the skier but the ball decided to split his index and forefinger webbing and ended up on the floor. Still with blood seeping through the tissue between his fingers Last had Stokes caught the next over by a top one handed catch in the deep by a running Dolly for 33 in 24th over. 2-73.

Last then withdrew to find something more appropriate to stem the bleeding giving Martin Brookes a chance to turn his arm over. He had an early reward when Stato held on to a slip catch in his first over. 3-81 in 26th.

Dixon and opener Prudden tried to push the score along against some tight bowling. Danny Brookes came back for his final 4 overs and soon had both out and the hosts innings petered out with the score on 159-6. A good performance in the field with some tight fielding. With the sun now well out and the track drying things look bright for the Doms as they went in for tea.

Tea was the usual cricket fare, sadly for some misguided souls no quiche but worse still no @abimaud cake.

Smaylen looking as if he's got quiche withdrawal ....

With tea taken Adams and Smaylen strode out to chase down the 160 required. Sadly 10 balls into the innings Smaylen played down the wrong line was bowled by Boardman for bugger all. I suspect the lack of quiche at tea may well have played its part in his abject defence...

Pedders joined Adams and both played themselves in but were soon scoring freely and only 17.5 overs were needed as Adams hit 664 to see the Doms over the line by 9 wickets and 22 overs spare. Adams finishing on a 59 ball 78 and Pedders a leisurely 46 ball 74. Top batting with neither troubled during their innings.

A good win now sets the Doms up for the annual final match in north Birmingham versus Ward End.

Man of the Match: Adams and Pedders for the ease of knocking off the runs and getting the boys into the pub early.

Drops: Last 2, Banners 1, Smaylen 1 and Adams 1
