Ward End CC 263 in 40 overs
|Match: Old Doms lost by 160 runs|
Last game of the season, and as the Doms have done over the past few seasons they ended up at Ward End where it seems an unwritten rule that the teams take it in turn to win. This season it was Wards End's turn. Yep as night follows day the host won the game by 160 runs.
The Doms had turned up with only 10 men and two of those were suffering from the previous nights alcoholic poisoning. Not the best ground to play, large slope very uneven outfield and a tap to get a six to most points of the ground. Still its the same for both sides.
Hunt lost the toss in what he thinks is his final game as skipper. The hosts got off to a good start but lost their first wicket with the score on 31 when Atkinson was bowled by Brookes. The batsmen then took control for most of their innings and ended up scoring 263-4. Dan Brookes getting 2 of the wickets and Colin Hunt and Martin Brookes one each.
Tea was taken. Not the most spectacular tea one would ever see at a cricket match.
Adams and Amir opened with Adams blasting 29 runs in 12 balls before he holed out to mid on. The Doms had raced to 41-1 off just 18 balls, and the hosts were looking a tad worried. However once Adams was out the team capitulated over the next 15 overs being bowled out for 103. Only Martin Brookes put up any real resistance with a good knock of 31.
So the Doms limped home with most players grateful the season was now over. April 2017 will soon be upon us when the Roving Reporter will bring you the Match Day News as and when it happens...
