Match Report vs Cavaliers 25 May 2017 (Cup) @ Wenvoe (Skipper and report Britpop)

Note to self: Do the match report at a stage where you might remember what the hell happened during the match.

Part Fiction

So after terror had not really stuck at all on a Newport roundabout, we turned up at Wenvoe slightly late with Will MW stepping in at the last minute after Neil got caught up in the chaos.

Kim couldn’t wait for the captain who was also a little late so tossed himself (hmm) – I don’t recall the outcome of Kim’s tossing, but I do know (as the scorebook informs me) that we batted.

Kim opened with Ollie and they got off to a slow but steady start before Ollie was bowled for 7. I then walked to the crease and a couple of runs later walked straight back off 2 runs added. Kim & Tesh didn’t last much longer as they became the 3rd & 4th straight batsman to be bowled.

Will & Rob then went about salvaging the innings with a lovely 50ish partnership on a tricky wicket. They smashed 4 sixes between them of which Rob got one (sorry Rob – don’t remember where but I’m going with a straight 6). Will then retired and Godfrey joined Rob at the crease and set about ‘twatting the slags’ all over the park – it was a remarkable and ‘never seen before’ (or again) piece of batting that even included a straight six. Goffy then retired and of course was extremely modest about his performance!

Mark joined Rob (24) to finish off the innings a cut a 4 through backward point (I’m guessing) and we finished the innings on a respectful 133-5.

Kim also opened the bowling (fuck we are getting like some of our opposing teams) with Shaky and started neatly with the opening 4 overs going for 16 with Kim bagging the opener – C&B. The next bowling pair of Tesh & Thomas started well with Tesh bowling a lovely over including a turning spitting delivery to smashed into the stumps whilst only going for 1 run. Dave bowled tidily with only 10 coming off his 2 overs. Unfortunate Tesh must have served up a bit of dross in his 2nd over which got carted for 21 runs – their acceleration started at this point and the next 3 overs from Tim & Rich went for 45. Our last 3 bowlers of Ollie, Rob & Will had and uphill task with the pick of them being Rob who bowled beautifully, taking a wicket and going for just 2 in the penultimate over. They finish off reaching the target 134 early in the final over.

Sorry if I’ve missed something – it’s been a while.

Man of the Match Rob Owen – If only the hapless captain had brought him on earlier!!
