      Match: Old Doms won by 9wks      
         

After the debacle of the season opener against Coftonians the Doms made 5 changes to the line up to face Sportsman who have had the upper hand over the Doms for a season or so. Last was drafted in to captain and immediately appointed Con Adams as vice Captain and Dan Brookes as Vice Vice Captain in a spot of succession planning.

Its was one of those gloomy pre summer days where the sun was lost behind greyness and rain was always threatening. Sensible players would done a jumper or two to keep the chill wind at bay whilst other would tough it out.. The visitors won the toss and decided to bat first on a used strip.

Dan Brookes and Pedro took the new ball with Brookes bowling his first over mainly on a different playing strip giving keeper Adams a chance to practice his diving skills. Hunt more controlled made the first breakthrough in his second over bowling Amar for 1. Brookes was rested after 6 overs for just 9 runs. Pedro took the second wicket in his 5th over removing Farhan for 15 and the score was on 36-2 in the 10th over.

Banners was toiling toiling away getting some turn and not allowing the batsmen any chance to up the run rate. Colin Hunt replaced Pedro (33-2). The Doms catching hadn't improved in the close season as catches went down, Banners suffering.

At drinks the visitors were on 65-2 and were struggling to get the scoreboard moving along.  The next wicket to fall came just after drinks as Hunt bowled Calvin for 9 with the Sportsman on 67-3. Saquib and Zak then took some control and tried to get a defendable score on the board, they put on 73 runs for the 4th wicket in ten overs not helped by dropped catches. Then with score on 145 in the 32nd over Last had Zak caught by Davidge then three balls later Jay topped edged to Adams who took a tricky behind the stumps catch. The Sportsmen were now 146-5 after 32 overs.

Adie then removed the dangerous Saquib when Last took a regulation ankle high catch at mid wicket and the batsman was walking back for 76 runs which was the backbone of the Sportsman inings. Adie took a further 2-2 and Last mopped up the final wicket having Abeer caught by Stato and the Doms walked off to tea after restricting the visitors to 169 all out.

Well the tea was another good spread, including chicken wings and other nice stuff (excluding the devils quiche) Another top dollar spread of cakes produce by @AbiMaud was the jewel in the crown.

So with the weather looking more murky than Jonners jock strap at the end of a long season Davidge and Adams  strode out to knock off the 170 needed. Abeer and Adiis opened for the visitors and kept the runs in check, in fact Davidge dug in and eked out 29 dot balls before he trouble scorer Riches pencil. The openers ticked over at a steady rate never getting behind the run rate with Con Adams taking the major role of scoring. In 16th over with the score on 57 the persistent drizzle saw the players come off.

The covers stayed on for 40 or so minutes giving the sky time to dry out and the gloom to lift a bit. Davidge was the only wicket to fall as the Doms chased the 170 needed. Davidge being caught for 18 and the Doms 72-1 in 19th.

Brookes joined Adams and the run rate lifted seeing Con Adams race through his first ton of the season with some great to watch proper boundary shots. The Doms eased past the 170 needed in 31st over with Adams undefeated on 109 and Martin Brookes with a useful 21 ball 25no.

A good all-round performance by the Doms who now get an early chance to take on the Coftonians and reverse last weeks disappointing result.

Player of the Match: Con Adams 109no

Drops: Last, Procter, Brookes one each, Adie 2.
