Match Report vs Malpas 10 July 2011@ Malpas (Skipper and report Muff)

A short trip up the m4 and we were there. The ground looked good and the wicket although a little green looked like it would play well. Muff lost the toss and the oppo decided to have a bat with the skipper telling me that they had a better batting line up than bowling!

Andy and Muff opened up and kept it very tight, Muff picking up the frist wicket caught by Andy at mid off and not giving them anything to hit. Paul up next got the next wicket, bowled and again didn’t give them too much. The oppos opening batsmen then got into his stride after being put down early on and hit anything loose and aided by their skipper proceeded to build a big score.

Fox, Mark, Ed and Goff all tried and failed to get the breakthrough but it was Paul coming back who did bowling the captain. The next batsmen in nothing changed and the scoreboard rattled along, Paul picked up another wicket stumped and Muff got the opener well caught by Goff on the boundry after losing it then grabbing it one-handed as it sailed past him. 234(?) for 5 off the 40.

Andy 8-1-44-0
Muff 7-0-23-2
Paul 8-2-27-3
Fox 4-0-26-0
Mark 5-0-35-0
Goff 5-0-43-0
Ed 3-0-24-0

Tea was lovely, one of the oppo works at the celtic manor and we were given a massive collection of fancy cakes to eat which we did with gusto even the egg sandwiches were seasoned properly and came from greggs!

The batting.
Well, it was one of those days when nothing goes right and we really just fell apart.
Other than Goff with 16 no-one got to double figures except extras and the Cazh were all-out for 62 in no time.

Darren caught 0
Richie bowled 1
Chris run-out 4
Fox bowled 0
Ash caught 0
Ed caught 4
Goff stumped 16
Mark caught and bowled 7
Paul caught 4
Andy bowled 3
Muff not-out 8

After the game it was discovered that Paul likes to bake cakes. This disturbing news got weirder when he informed us that he bakes for charity!
One of these charities is the donkey sanctuary and I mentioned that donkeys deserve charity as they have a crap life, big cock they never use, spend all day on the beach and then left in a field to die. Paul reckoned that I had just described Dan!
