Match Report vs Cardiff
Bay Babas 16 June 2010@ Wenvoe (Skipper Dan, report
Another warm sunny evening at Wenvoe, the pitch is dry and
a bit bouncy and everyone is on time but for the kit and Capt.
Dan, we loose the toss and are inexplicably asked to bat by
Ed and Ash opened up and a partnership of 48 eschewed, 2 fours
for Ash including a straight lofted drive and Ed took toll
of a particular over getting double figures off it with the
cut and pull. Ed was out 1st for 21 bowled by a good one.
Kim came in and he was his belligerent self with 36 consisting
of 3 4’s and 2 6’s. Ash was out next for 21 bowled
running down the wicket by a full toss (61 for 2).
Shandy joined Kim and put on 59 with him, Shandy’s
17 contained 2 well hit 4’s as he contrived to give
Kim as much of the strike as possible. Kim was very well caught
in the deep at cow corner (120 for 3) and Shandy fell at the
same score (120 for 4)
JR and Gareth were at the crease together until the score
reached 143 for 5 when I gave JR out LBW for 9 hitting one
four. Goff joined Gareth who I also gave out LBW for 18 swinging
across the line trying to keep up the run rate having played
very well hitting two fours.
Goff got 9 including a four, Tesh had 3, both were run out
pushing the fielders and Dan was 0 not out at the end in an
innings containing 30 odd extras totalling 164.
We opened up with Muff and myself, I bowled one of the openers
with one that nipped back to take the middle pole in the 1st
over. Muff had the number 3 caught at mid on by cheese in
the 4th over. I bowled the other opener for 1 in the 5th over
with a good ball even if I do say so myself.
Now Imran our old buddy of indoor fame and cow corner abuser
came in and danced down the wicket to Muff and hit him for
a 6 over Muff’s head, he later tried it again and was
stumped by Kim, or was he? Well Imran began to walk, the umpire
(CBB’s club chairman) said not out. Kim lost his rag
and had a right go at anyone that might be listening and the
CBB’s skipper had to ask Dan to calm him down, which
he did quite quickly. Enough said about that incident other
than he looked out to me at midwicket.
In my last over I caught the 5 batsmen for 1 (4 overs 3 for
12) and Muff finished with 1 for 19 off his 4. Tesh was next
on and the ball was turning and he took 2 fine wickets. Kim
stumped one and caught one off one that really bounced and
Dan at the other end ended Imran’s innings with a return
catch for the top score of 19. He then bowled the next guy
with a Yorker and Tesh caught the number 9. Dan bowled very
well 3 overs 3 for 10 and Tesh had 3 overs 2 for 20.
Goff came on from the field end and bowled one just short
of a length and got creamed through the straight cover only
to find Tesh directly in the way looking into the sun clinging
onto a sharp chance, 1 ball, 1 wicket.
CBB’s all out for 62 off 14.1 overs for a good win
