Match Report vs Celtic Hawks 15 June 2017 @ Wenvoe (Skipper and report Dan)

It might have been sunny during the day, but the evening of this fixture – the conditions had turned cold. Dan won the toss and with a strong batting line up (and still waiting for Jesus to turn up) decided to bat first. Kim and Tesh opened up. The Hawks bowling attack produced a mixed bag – some really good deliveries, but struggled with consistency and a lot of wides. Kim looked confident, but was undone in the 4th over when tried to cart one that turned out to be a good ball and top edged it to the keeper (9). Tesh didn’t fare any better and was out next over after cracking one to square leg only to be caught (6). Ollie was in and Jesus had turned up so the pair began rebuilding the innings...31-2 off 5 rattled along to 98-2 off 10, slowed a little at 129-2 off 15 then shot up to 159 in the 17th when Ollie was bowled for 33. Will went in the 19th over for 82 followed very quickly by Shakey 0 2 balls later. Rob (3no) and Dan (0no) saw out the rest of the last over. 175-5, with an impressive 36 wides.

Pete Tagliatelle and DB opened the bowling attack – Pete was very unlucky not to take the first wicket, dropped by Dave at square leg (would have been a good catch, even though it did go straight to him), the second chance – the very next ball – all happened in slow motion..the ball looping up to Rob at mid-off...only to be put down. Instead Dave took the credit (against the same batsman) the next over – a carbon copy of Rob’s drop – this time going to Dan. Pete did get his reward the next over – caught by Tim at mid-on. Dave took 2 more wickets – one bowled of pad, inner thigh and tickled on to the stumps, and Pete took another also bowled. 38-5 off 8. The game effectively won, Dan tossed the ball to Kim – who actually enticed the new batsmen into more attacking shots. Tim also bowled a 4 over spell without reward. Richie and Shakey finished off – Richie got a comedy run out – the ball belted back to him off his foot and left the non-striking batsman stranded as it ricocheted onto the stumps. Shakey bowled one of the 2 remaining batsmen and Richie claimed a stumping (Ollie) off the last ball of the innings. The late order batsmen providing Hawks with some respectability with a 47 and 39. Dan and Rob not required.

Pete T –4-0-21-2
Dave T -4-0-17-3
Kim -2-0-12-0
Richie -4-0-30-1
Shakey – 2-0-19-1

A convincing win, then off to the pub for a pint or two and to discuss the impending fixture vs the Aussie touring side...
