Match Report vs GE Healthcare 06 June 2011@ Wenvoe (Skipper Ed, report DB)

Despite the glorious weather i was not confident of playing today given the record of the oppo but miracle of miracles they turned up.

Not sure if the toss was won or lost but we batted first. Tesh and Gaz opened but Gaz was bowled in the 3rd over for 0. Kim joined Tesh in the middle and dispatched the ball to the four winds. They put on 50 before Kim(33) was caought of the first ball of the 9th (possibly a bit unlucky as it the ball looked to have been above waist height). Gwion was next in and had a bit of a shaky start 1st ball edged for one, 2nd ball dollied to mid wicket and dropped. Tesh was out next bowled 1st ball of the 10th (12). JR was in at 5, He and Gwion rotated the stike very well and Gwion made them pay for the dropped catch with four consecutive boundaries in the 16th. They had the 2nd 50 partnership of the innings. Gwion was next out LBW (25). Next in and out Dion (0) caught. Goff next up and though he didn't score many (2) he did run well converting a few one's to two's, with some good (if extremely high pitched) calling. Dan was last in with one ball remaining, with instructions to bang it for 6 for the amusement of Britpops son Fraser. Result - one leg bye. JR finished not out with a great 40 which contained 4 boundaries. Casz finished on 142 for 6.

Tesh - 12 b
Gaz - 0 b
Kim - 33 c
Gwion - 25 lbw
JR - 40 no
Dion - 0 c
Goff - 2 st
Dan - 1 no
Nadders; DB; Muff - DNB

The Casz took to the field in great spirits after a great batting performance. Dion opened the bowling and found a great line and length, but Muff at the other end got the first wicket in the 2nd over bowled with the score on 4. Dione took the 2nd wicket in the 7th bowled (18). DB took over fron Dion and Nadders from Muff. Nadders struck next, Dion taking another magnificent catch in the deep. After 10 overs GE needed 101 to win. DB took the next wicket in the 11th - another good take by Dion (especially as he could have been put of by the mockney sparra's premature ejaculation). Nadders took another in the 14th (56) caught by shagger who was not his usual sharp self in the field (I was going to write a lot more about this but it's late and i want to go to bed). Dave struck again in the 15th - bowled (61). JR and Shagger took the last four overs both bowling well JR was unlucky not to get a wicket but the catch was put down by the aforementioned Mr Lewis to much hilarity. GE finished on 86 for 6.

Afzal 4-0-28-2
