      Match: Old Doms won by 8 wickets      
         

Well another 20/20 slog down at a murky Bromsgrove, the weather was certainly typical 'English summer' weather, dark and damp. The visitors were Highwood Park who somehow mistook the 6pm start for a 6:30 start. On a nice clear summers evening this would fine but it was grim. So midweek stand in skipper Perry (where was Steve Martin!) lost the toss and agreed to a 15 8 ball over match, same number of balls to be bowled but it saves a few minutes. The match would also be played out on the artificial as the square was quite damp still.

The Highwood lads decided to bat first and started off at a sprint 10 coming off Blackmore's first and Banners first over was carted for 22 but he did have the consolation of bowling Woodley for 6. The question still remains why was Banners bowling seam up !

Banners then removed the other opener when Tank Perry took a catch at mid off that most of the side never thought he was going to get his hands on. 2-49 after 4 overs.

With Banners bowled out for a 35-2 and Blackmore rested Perry and Last took the team through the middle overs. Last disposed of the dangerous Allsop for an 18 ball 31 and Perry bowling Stamps for 26. The bowling pair had restricted the visitors middle 8 overs to just 41 runs and taking 2 wickets.

It just left Morris and the returning Blackmore to continue the tight grip the Doms had on the run chase, both took a wicket as the visitors limped to 119 all out.

The Doms performance in the field was top class, two cracking run out's and Ben Smith standing up to most bowlers which is no mean feat when keeping on the artificial where to ball has some exaggerated bounce.

So at halfway the Doms were the most confident team in the match.

With the night closing in Hickin and Wright struggled against some tight bowling by Duncan and Barratt, at one point it looked like we had two Davidge's batting.

Hickin and Wright didn't hang around long and were both out for 6 apiece. This left Jacob Matthews to build on last weeks 70no and Banners to clatter the ball to all parts of the ground, interestingly given the short boundary only Banners managed to score a maximum. The pair saw the Doms home with ease.

Banners 35 and Matthews 48 undefeated looked class with the Doms winning by 8wickets.

Man of the Match: joint Banners and Jacob Matthews.

Drops: 2. Matthews and Smith
