Match Report vs Chartered Trust 24 July 2013 @ St Fagans (Skipper Cheese, report Shag)

With the chance of rain during the heat wave that had gripped the summer, the Cazh made their way to St Fagan’s to play table topping Chartered Trust.

The toss was won and skipper Cheese decided to field first. Shag and Shakey opened the bowling, Shag containing Trust to mainly to singles apart from a boundary through the slips in the first over. Shakey struggled to a) turn his arm over and b) let go of the ball, so took himself off after 1 over, to be replaced by Winkie. Winkie apart from a few loose ones started to find his form once again, but neither him nor Shag could get the first wicket, nor managed to stop Trust from playing their shots.

Matt H replaced Shag and Kiwi Pete replaced Winkie. Kiwi Pete gave the Cazh some hope by getting the first wicket, however, the other opener Liddell was scoring at a much faster rate and an imposing total looked likely and a lack of sharpness in the field didn’t help. Fall of wicket at 114 off 12 overs. Kiwi Pete was unfortunate not to get another wicket when the ball was hit high to Shakey on the bowling green fence, not sure if Shakey’s sight is going the same way as his hearing, as although he was directly beneath the ball as it came down,he managed to miss it with his hands, instead using the top of his head to stop the ball, which was hit with a thud which took the speed out of the ball which fell the right side of the ropes and the boundary was ‘saved’.

Cheese took over from Matt and Pete Obee One replaced Kiwi. Cheese put his heart and soul into his bowling but was unable to take a wicket, although, Obee1 took 2 in the last over one lbw and the other stumped by Jesus. The innings ended with Trust on 202-3 and Liddell getting his unbeaten century.

Lewis – 4overs-0maidens-30runs-0wickets

Cheese – 4-0-39-0
Obbe1 – 2-0-22-2

The forecasted rain had stayed away, though the clouds drew darker as the evening progressed.

Steveo and Jesus opened the batting for the Cazh, and looked confident to start with. Steveo hit a couple of 4’s and Will looked in touch. However, it was Will who was out first clouting a lofted cover drive only to be caught on the boundary. 22-1. Steveo fell to the same fate shortly after for 13. Britpop and Tesh put on a mini partnership before Tesh was run out for 7 (when the report starts mentioning partnerships of 10 you know we’re in trouble...) .

Obee1 hung around for a while before being dismissed for 8 (partnership of 14). Kiwi was next in and out for 3 (partnership of 6). Cheese was next in and not helping his mood top edged the first ball to the keeper (partnership 1).

Britpop finally succumbed in the same over finally failing to edge a straight one for joint top score of 14. Winkie and Shakey gave some level of respectability to the score by hanging around and playing some good shots in the closing light, putting on a massive partnership of 32 before Shakey’s eyes failed him. Shag came in for the last 3 balls and snuck the Cazh over the hundred mark.

Can’t say it was our finest performance, but Trust were the all round better side.
