Match Report vs Eclipse 21 June 2018 @ Wenvoe (Skipper and report Dan)

Little Ed Sheeran and a pile up on the M4 meant that the match had a relaxed start time, Captain Dan offered the toss call to Eclipse – they won and the Cazh were fielding.

Things couldn’t have gotten off to a better start, Dan getting Mike to play on first ball. Goffy started with conceding 2 boundaries then got one to nip back and bowled the solid no3. 9 for 2 off 2. Dan got the No4 in his 3rd over and Goffy bowled out. Dan leaving one in the tank for reserve. 34-3 off 7. Maxy replaced Dan at the pavilion end and DT replaced Goffy. Both bowled fine, though Maxy conceded a boundary an over including a 5 from a no ball in his last. Next ball he got the first (first Cazh wicket?) bowling the remaining opener. 76-4 off 14. Steve B and Paul bowled the next 4, Steve bowled some very good looking deliveries, but was then prone to chucking a full bungger. He picked up a wicket caught by Goff running round to thirdman. Paul got one bowled in his second. Dan replaced Steve for the last but one over, but couldn’t get pick up any more and Paul finished off and a run out was provided between Kim and Steveo. Eclipse finishing on 115-7. This was probably 10 to 15 runs more than it should have been, and given the bounce of the ball on the wicket – it looked like a challenging target.

Dan 4-0-10-2

Luvvers and Kim opened for the Cazh and needed to be wary against speedster Mike and accurate Brian. Both started cautiously, and then Luvvers started to open up. Life was looking rosey, but in the 6th over, Luvvers tickled an edge to the keeper.41-1 off 6. Winkie joined Kim and the partnership started to grow, Kim smashed one into the stream but there the run rate was predominantly funded by singles. In the 12th over Kim fell to a fantastic caught and bowled. Like many times previously, this wicket was the turning point. 70-2, 46 runs still required but 8 overs in hand, the Cazh collapse began. Each over another wicket fell – Steve in the 13th, looking ok, but backed away to a fuller one; 14th Andy finally being undone to the right arm round the wicket bowler. The 15th brought 2 - Steveo faced 3 before being bowled and Goff connected with a couple before trying to guide a straight one down thirdman and missed. 80-6 off 15. The pressure now on. Maxy was still there and Dan next in. They both tried, Maxy clubbed many but to fielders, they both run hard and even run a 3 off an over throw. Matt was finally out in the last over, caught by the fielder who had previously dropped 2 others. Dan thought he’d hit a 6 but the fielder changed his mind to a 4, but he too was to fall nicking one behind and Paul finished off getting bowled last ball. The cazh finished on 105ao off 19.

Disappointing, one the skipper believed was ours to win, however, some good bowling and fielding in the end put too much pressure on the Cazh batsmen. The oppo and remaining Cazh piled off back to the Wenvoe arms for a big buffet and a pint.
