Match Report vs Cavaliers 16 June 2022 @ Wenvoe (Skipper Richie, report Shakey)

Wenvoe hosted the 70th match versus old friend the Cavaliers, with Casuals ahead 28 wins to 23. Alex S and Dave opened up against two very hard-hitting openers with Alex taking a little stick early on. The openers maybe weren’t the most graceful (I always preferred watching Mark Waugh but the figures would lead you to think that Steve was the better batsman) but they did a great job of putting pressure on the bowlers and fielders with ball flying to all parts.

There were some half chances and two rockets were put down with only Dave applying some control early on. Both openers retired on 50 but Steaders kept the pressure up, ably assisted by the number 4. At the end of the 19th over we hoped it would be over soon with the Cavaliers on 140-0.

Dave to bowl the last and in search of a wicket. Six, one, six, two, one and then didn’t we cheer when Dave finally took a wicket with the last ball of the innings. No we didn’t cheer actually. We were just relived it was over. 156-1 was an imposing score.

Alex S 4-0-28-0
Dave 4-0-32-1
Stevo 4-0-34-0
Rob 4-0-35-0
Shakes 4-0-33-0

Rhys and Alex H set us off in pursuit. We accumulated the runs pretty well but kept losing wickets after some positive stuff from Jimmy and Richie. When Richie fell to leave us at 76-4 it was up to Will and Rhys to keep the tempo up. Rhys was playing a well-paced innings by this time, and he ticked things over while Will went on the attack. He hit two maximums and three boundaries in a quick-fire 29 before being stumped with the score on 119. Rhys was run out shortly after for a very good 41 and we were never quite able to pierce the field enough at the end.

The target always seemed too far away as we somehow posted 147-8. The 23 extras helped.

Rhys 41, Alex H 2, Jack 7, Jim 14, Richie 10, Will 29, Rob 8, Stevo 8*, Alex S 3
