Match Report vs Radyr Dads 23 June 2021 @ St Fagans(Skipper Rob, report Pat)

An overcast evening at St Fagans was the setting for the Casuals entry into the Bowl for 2021, against the Radyr Dads team (although a number of the opposition were more lads than dads). The Dads won the toss and opted to bowl, a good decision as some of the Casuals middle order were still on their way to the ground as Will and Rhys went out to open. After a steady start against some accurate bowling on an occasionally spicy pitch, Will found the boundary several times to retire on 27 and the score on 32 in the 5th over. Unfortunately for Richie, his arrival at the wicket coincided with the Dads’ strike bowler entering the attack, bowling round arm out swing/in swing/leg cutters, and tempting Richie into a nick behind. Rob came in next, and he and Rhys built the score with Rhys retiring on 25 and the score on 77. There was then a steady stream of boundaries and wickets, Ben caught for 1, Rob for 20, Jim a first ball duck and Dan for a quick fire 16. SteveO and Shakey continued to build the score into the final over, when SteveO fell for 12. What followed was an unusual sequence of two diamond ducks, for Patrick and then Foxy, in the pursuit of some optimistic final runs, followed by Will re-entering for a final ball at the non-strikers end. The Casuals closed on a solid 134 for 8 – ‘something to bowl at’.

The Casuals bowling effort started promisingly with Dan controlling the run rate and Shakey taking the first wicket – a swift stumping by Jim. Ben and Patrick came on at first change and managed to ‘see off’ a couple more, although due to them retiring rather than any wickets. At the mid way point the Dads were slightly behind the rate at 65-1 but with wickets in hand. Will claimed the second wicket of the innings when a skier was held by the safe hands of SteveO, circling round to take the catch. Despite some further tidy bowling from Rob, Rhys and SteveO and reliable fielding all round, a few lusty blows took the Dads within sight of the target which they duly reached with 5 balls to spare.
