Match Report vs Chartered
Trust 2 June 2010@ Wenvoe (Skipper Dan, Report Big
A lovely evening, with sun in the sky Dan walk out to the
toss with one less eyebrow and a fetching bald spot on his
head and promptly lost the toss.
C Trust decided to Bat. Winkie started down the hill and
at only the second ball the Number 1 bat showed his intention
by hitting Winkie back over his head. Then came Dion running
up the hill and starting with a tidy first over. Andy and
Iain bowled their overs straight through with Andy ending
with figures 4-0-25-2 and Iain picking up two wickets. Ian
got Bat 1 caught and Bowled and Cheese taking a nice catch
for Bat 2 leaving Dion with figures 4-0-26-2.
Then came The skipper who took a wicket in his first over
bowling Bat 4 with on coming back. Pablo came up hill trying
all he new to take wickets.
C Trust then had a stand 50 stand with clean,mighty hitting
to all parts of the ground. The Casuals chased hard in the
field. Pablo bowled 3-0-30-0 and then in Dans last over and
his last ball he took the wicket of Bat 5 with Pikey taking
a good catch at Long on. This leaving the skipper with figures
Then came Muff. It has to said that now Bat 3 was in the
grove and ready to hit a few runs. I think the six he hit
over long on off a yorker was breathtaking. At the other end
Goff bowled well with figures of 2-0-15-0. Muff bowled the
last over and managed to stop Bat 3 from getting his hundred
ending on 97. Unlucky Muff 3-0-49-0. Well done in the field
Now casuals time to bat. With the skipper still finding cuts
and bruises from his Stag do in some distant east european
country, JF and Will went to bat.
With Casuals needing 8.4 per over Jf and Will set off at
a steady pace. The ball popping on a good length and keeping
low at other times.
JF and Will shared a stand of 81 JF been dropped one or
two times and finally holing out for 38 to S Shupta. Then
next ball Will got bowled by a ball that bounced twice for
35. So that left Kim and Cheese in a good situation. Unfortunately
Kim got bowled for 2 playing a very gay shoot. This brought
Pikey to the wicket who started with a few nice dabs and pushes
and then got run out for 2. Next in was Goff who looked like
he was still trying to win the match. Unfortunately Cheese
ran himself out for a nicely played 22. This brought the skipper
to the wicket to face the the last few overs. The last over
was bowled by a somebody who had obviously learnt to to ball
just before he was handed the ball. Skipper and Goff swiped
at a few and in the end Goff was bowled on the last ball for
9. Leaving the skipper not out 6.
Casuals loss. But a batsmen in the oppo who could clear the
boundry with ease. Still good to have the sun.
