Match Report vs Chartered Trust 11 May 2017 @ Wenvoe (Skipper and report Dan)

With previous downpours and thunder all around, the decision to play was put in the court of both teams – the verdict to give it a go...and apart from a splattering of light drizzle it was the right move.

Trust won the toss, and decided to bat with reduced overs to 18. Dan and Dave opened the bowling and were unlucky not to get a break through. There were a few miss hits and a couple that got through narrowly missing the stumps. After 8 overs Trust had reached 46 runs for 0. Rob and Richie took over and Trust looked to increase the run rate. There were chances in the field, though most were just out of reach. The first (and only wicket was taken via a run out from Kim in the outfield to Richie – who almost turned and threw down the stumps from 3 yards – fortunately he stepped up to the stumps and took the bails off with the batsman very close to making his ground. The batmen continue to hit the ball hard and ball skidding off the pitch, the ball reaching the ditch on a few occasions. A few injuries were sustained in the field, though not from necessarily from being hit, bar Saint who took one on the hand. Ollie and Tesh had a couple of overs at the end and Dan bowled his 4th last over. The opening batsman reached an agonising 99 not out. Trust finished on 175-1.

Dan 4-0-27-0
Dave 4-0-24-0
Rob – 4-0-35-0
Rich – 3-0-40-0
Ollie – 2-0-32-0
Tesh -1-0-17-0

A tough ask to chase down this total, but Tesh and Big Willy opened the batting against some accurate bowling to start with. Tesh (10) was first to fall against the first change bowler – caught at mid on. A few wides later, Will (2) was also out bowled. 19-2. Kim and Ollie now at the crease looked to stabilise and then push on. Both looked assured, until Ollie (11) yorked himself and was bowled. An injured Britpop in next put on the biggest partnership of 35 with Kim, including a big 6 in to Penelope’s garden. Darren was eventually out (11) caught. 73-4 off 12overs. Steveo innings was a little short, though did make it past all the bets, run out by direct hit for 2. Dan smeared a 4 into the ditch, before nicking one to the keeper (4). Richie (10no) and Kim (38no) saw the innings to a close 124-6. Extras was the second highest scorer with 35.
