Match report vs Cardiff Cricket & Hockey 2 June 08@ Wenvoe (Skipper John F, report Muff)

..........and the ball goes sailing over the boundry for 6.

Looks like i turned up a little late and the pikster is being targeted. next ball same shot same hang on, winkie has somehow jumped like air jordan and plucked the ball one handed from just inside the fence! result!

A dramatic entrance to the game and a walk over to scorer andy f to find out what i've missed. Apparently the oppo, in their first ever competetive game, went off like a gun, then through some miserly bowling from baggy and stumpy have been brought back and now their dangerman has been caught have to re-group again. the oppo went from 39-1 off 5 to 47-3 off 10 and with sharif, kim and funny jam all bowling well till johns last over are pegged at 112 for 8 off their 18 overs.

During the turn around shakey relives his majestic innings of sunday and we quitely explain to smitts where the covers are and the mystery of the off drive(im sure he was born left handed and is still confused) right, to the chase!

Jam and manish kick us off and with a slow, sticky wicket found it hard to play with any fluency, manish falling first to a low one bowled for 2. Simon up next and the painfully slow progress is maintained with both players struggling to time the ball and hitting the ball to a well placed field. Simon next to go bowled by a low slow one(natch) trying to hustle the scoring along for 13. 51-2 off11.

The light drizzle falling did not help at all but with kim coming to the crease the scoreboard started moving along with john hitting big to retire on 45, bringing jamie p to the wicket. 84-3 off 14 now, i will not comment on how it happened, suffice to say kim was run-out by 21 yards attempting a quick single and i'll leave it at that. Kim scoring a quickfire 18.

Shag strode like a collossus to the wicket and then trudged back bowled by a ..........for 0. 107-5 off 17. So with 6 needed off the last over the tension building the night darkening winkie faced and promptly smacked the ball through mid-wicket for 4 and he and jamie nurdled the 2 singles to win the game with 2 balls to spare. good game, good oppo, good result.
