      Match: Old Doms lost by 62 runs      
         

Well the Doms finally got on to the field again after failing miserably to get anywhere near 11 players to turn out, however it was decided to go into this match with only 9 players, not wanting to let another opposition team down. by cancelling. With minutes to go the Doms had 11 as Amir and Abbas arrived to make the 11. It was really great to see a couple of players who just turned up in the hope of getting a game, well done those men.

Tank was the captain for the day and soon lost the toss and the Beaumont skipper John Granger ask to bat first on a green top and with a gale blowing.

The Doms makeshift 11 were short of regular bowlers and opened with McNeice down the hill and Last doing the hard graft up the hill. The first over by McNeice proved that the pitch was damp and slow! Lasts first ball was extremely short and wide as he tripped over the white line. However with his 5th ball opener Johnson left a ball outside leg stump and was gobsmacked as the ball jagged back and took out his leg stump. Last and McNiece continued to keep a stranglehold on the game and after 10  overs only 20 runs had been eked out.

Last struck again in the 12th over having Johnson L smartly caught by keeper Davidge and in his next over Kriskin was out smarted by skipper Perry when he moved Morris from slip to stand about 3 yards front of the bat on the edge of the strip. Last floated one in and the batsman chip the ball into Morris's midriff and the third wicket was down for 32 in 14th over. A great piece of cricket when a plan works.

The visitors limped along and at drinks they had amassed 63 runs for the loss of the three wickets. Sadly after the break and against some toiling bowling Johnson R and Jandi raced along and added 80 runs in the next 10 overs.

The next wicket arrived with the score on 143 when Jandi smashed a Morris delivery up into the swirling wind to mid off where Hunt took a great catch. That was the last triumph for the Doms as the visitor took full advantage of the limited bowling options open to skipper Perry. The visitors innings came to an end with the score on 225-4 with Johnson R score 100no. The visitors had added 162 runs in the second half 20 overs. Things could have been a lot worse for the Doms had the fielding not been top class, all 11 Doms flung themselves around for a full 40 overs, a great team effort.

Tea was taken, a simple affair lacking the delights of AbiMauds cakes which were sadly missed.

The Doms sent out Davidge and Amir to open against some tight bowling. With the score on 23 Amir nicked one behind which started a slump of 4 wickets with the score only on 55 in 23 over. Yes 23rd over! The Doms had only managed to score 47 in the first 20 overs.

McNeice S started to alter the run rate in an upward direction as 40 runs were scored in the next 4 overs, perhaps the Doms would challenge the 226 needed? But with the score on 95 Davidge was caught for 28 when he looked set.

When McNeice was out for a quick fire 63 in 30 balls to a very sharp catch only a cameo 21no from skipper Perry was the highlight of the rest of the innings. The game ended with the Doms running out of overs with still 65 runs require.

Despite the defeat it was good to see the Doms out and playing again, lets hope other Doms will try and play a few games to keep the side going.

 

Player of the Match: McNeice for a great 63 and a very tight 0-16.

Drops: Amir and Hickin 1 each
