Match Report vs Hills Plymouth 24 July 2011@ Pentrebach (Skipper Cheese, report Dan)

I think this was a late entry onto the fixture list (fixture bureau), so the Cazh headed up the valleys to Pentrebach (Merthyr). I will also assume that the toss was won by skipper Cheese, and HP were inserted to bat. Winkie and Goff opened the bowling. Both started the Cazh off well, Winkie bowling his 8 straight through picking up one wicket bowled. Big Willy and Steveo were next up, both under fire from the batting power of HP. Steveo did pick up a wicket stumped by Ash. The Stephens twins next up and though going for some runs, the run rate was brought back a bit, plus picking up 4 wickets between them – one of which was a supposedly splendid catch by Steveo, another by Winkie and a another stumping. Tesh and Cheese finished off the bowling Tesh getting a wicket. Supposedly over the course of the innings the cazh managed to put down 6 catches – which had proved costly. The final score 227-7 off the 40overs.

Winkie – 8overs – 1 maiden – 32 runs – 1 wicket
Goff – 4-0-16-0
Will – 3-0-27-0
Steveo – 5-0-41-1
Shakey – 8-0-46-1
Paul – 8-1-30-3
Tesh – 2-0-11-1
Ed – 2-0-12-0

Tesh and Britpop started us off, and though it seemed that Darren hardly faced a ball, the first wicket to fall was Tesh’s bowled for 27 with the score on 32 off 4.2 overs. A very bright start. Cheese joined Britpop briefly before Darren was adjudged lbw by the umpire. I’m not sure if this was a mercy killing as Darren left the field having scored 1. Goff joined up with Ed and the pair continued to build the innings. The third wicket fell in the 16th over with the score on 71 – Ed being caught for 25. Richie joined Goff. New bowler N Lewis came into the attack. Goff bagged a boundary off Lewis’ 2nd ball, but fell the next caught for 11 with the total score on 82-4 off 16.3overs.

Now, I’m not sure of the reason, perhaps it was the weather, perhaps it was the calling of the pub/kebab house, but the infamous Cazh collapse had just begun. Richie fell next ball (2) caught. Steveo fell a couple of balls later also caught (3); The Stephens twins in together, Shakey lasted 5 balls caught 1; Paul did rather better lasting 13 balls before also caught (6); Winkie and Will lasted 4 balls in total one caught, one bowled, both 0, leaving Ash no on 2. N Lewis finished with 4 for 7 off 3; and either his brother or dad with 2-1 off 2. The Cazh slumped to 98ao off 24 overs.

Tesh – 27 bowled
Darren – 1 lbw
Ed – 25 ct
Goff – 11 ct
Richie – 2 ct
Steveo – 3 ct
Mark – 1 ct
Paul – 6 ct
Andy – 0 ct
Will – 0 ct
Ash – 2 no

One to forget, or to learn from…though one memoriable discussion of the pitch was how many rude words the team could think of to describe female genitalia - the result - more than runs the team could score....
