Match Report vs Eclipse 9 July 2013 @ Wenvoe (Skipper Cheese, report Shakey)

Will capped a fine batting display, and narrowly missed out on a ton, when he picked up an easy single to reach our target of 143 in the 17th over. His 92* featured three pleasing sixes and 14 boundaries as he dominated a 107-run partnership with Johnny F for the second wicket.

Ah hold on. Readers may get the impression that this was the winning target - they would sadly be mistaken.

No, this was the target we had set ourselves in beating the score of the Eclipse opener who had just smashed us for an unbeaten 142. He played extremely well and made the Wenvoe ground seem much smaller than normal in hitting eight 6s on the way. Yes he was dropped a few times [including on 0...] but some of the drops were excusable given their power. Oddly enough Paul bowled a wicket maiden and shakes only went for 20 off his four overs. The rest of the attack was taken apart as Eclipse reached 213-5 with the other opener scoring 31 (stumped by Will off shakes), extras 24 and the next highest score was 12. Cheese picked up an expensive three wickets.

The 'run chase' wasn't without interest though. After Darren fell cheaply Jam and Will batted very well for their big partnership before Jam was caught for 35. Gaz gave Will further support but alas Will was caught in the deep on 92 - the highlight being the hard thwack off cricket ball on to a travellers' van as the watching cazh predicted it was bound to happen soon. Ah yes the travellers. But that's a story for another time.

After a brief sojourn from cheese, Tesh and Dan made hay in taking us to a respectable 166-5 off 20 overs.
