Match Report vs Barry Wanderers 01 September 2019 @ Hayes Point (Skipper and report Dan)

The last domestic fixture of the 2019 season was upon us – everyone turned up on time at a sunny Hayes Point and the toss was won by the Wands who decided to bat first. Dan and DT opened the bowling. The wicket provided the bowlers with some ammunition and the batsmen needed to be watchful – some deliveries were splitting, others keeping low, but the batsmen played well and either kept everything out or were lucky enough not to nick one. Dan ended his spell with a maiden, DT continued and was rewarded with a wicket in the 14th over – caught by Luvvers at long on. 55 – 1 off 14. Goffy replaced Dan and bowled equally economically, the opener was still the linchpin to the Wanderers innings. Goffy got the wicket of the No3 after seeing his preferred shot – moved Luvvers to backward square and next ball the batsman obliged by sticking right down his throat. It was Obee1 who had replaced DT at the Sully end that got the prize breakthrough of the other opener who cut it to Goffy at short third man. 68-3 at drinks. The Wands failed to accelerate, but stuck around to nurdle a few runs. Pete picked up further wickets in the 24th and 30th overs both bowled. Tim’s spell should have resulted in a catch by the skipper (who would have been a very happy man had he not misjudged the pace of the ball vs the slope and spilled it on the cow boundary), but Tim did get his reward bowling the no7. With Dan OB taking the last overs from the Sully end, the skipper brought himself back on and picked up 2 further wickets for the loss of no runs. The Wands finished on 135-8 after their 40 overs.
The fielding on the whole was very good – Calamity Tim stopped almost everything that came his way in covers, apart from 1 that almost took his teeth out.

Dan L – 8-3-13-2
DT – 8-0-41-1
Goffy – 7-3-10-1
Obee1 – 8-2-22-3
Tim – 5-0-22-1
Dan OB – 4-0-21-0

Catches – Luvvers x2; Goffy x2

Tea was taken and as usual was very nice, far more consumed than should have been.

Luvvers and Rob opened that batting. The first 5 overs went for not many, and a couple of potential chances – with the ball continuing to bounce erratically – some pretty close to the wickets. 6th over, the one bowler lost his line and length and Gazza went after him with a couple of boundaries and a maximum. A change of bowling slowed the run chase down again. At early drinks (18 overs) the score was 90 and Luvvers reached his 50. After drinks he just wanted to get on with it and 2 big overs in the 19th and 21st finished off the game. 137-0-21.3overs.

Luvvers 84 no
Rob 32no

A nice game against our old friends, this one heavily in favour of the Cazh, but the roles have been reversed (last season for example). It was nice to finish with a win (though Jesus was about as happy as Cheese at West End)! We had a pint and a chat then made our way home, would our fortune continue on tour….?
