Match Report vs BOTS 26 July 2022 @ Pontcanna (Skipper Richies, report Dan)

The highlight from this match was the delivery and distribution of the new Cazh sponsored kit (and a fight in the Gaelic footy match on the neighbouring pitch).

The Cazh revelled once again in the size choices of other players – the best line delivered – it fits very well – just like a latex glove!! However, everyone seemed very pleased with both kit and size choices.

The team changed somewhat over course of the preceding days and hours before the match, but 11 almost fit (read – not injured) Cazh made the start time. Richie won the toss and decided to bat first. Rhys and Alex opened up and things started well for the pair as the BOTs opening bowler pulled his calf second ball in and gifted a number of wides and no balls to get us off the mark. The pair then battled well against the other openers and the replacement opener and they put on a partnership of 49 before Rhys (11) smoked one at the cover fielder who took a cracking catch in front of his face.

Alex (28) having had a reprieve with the keeper dropping an absolute sitter, but later took a blinder one handed catch the next over. Jesus and Jack next pair in and Will was facing a very good off spinner who bowled it as fast if not faster than many of our ‘fast’ bowlers and moved it away each delivery – even Will was caught out a few times by the speed, bounce and turn. However, Will did get hold of a few and elegantly put to the boundary. Jack (1) didn’t fare as well and was caught at the other end.

There was then a procession of a few mini partnerships all with Will , who carried his bat to the end. The Cazh finishing on 113-6 off 20

Rhys 11ct
Alex 28ct
Will MW – 44no
Jack 1ct
Rich 1ro
Jim 3ct
Dan 3b
Naren 5no
Goffy, Dave W, DT – DNB

The second inngings started with Dan bowling a good line and length, but the opener creaming it through mid off for 2 fours. Adjusting his length, Dan’s remaining 3 overs were more frugal and took the first wicket in his 3rd over – caught by Will at mid-on.

Goffy’s 4 over spell was wicketless but there were some very good deliveries, the batsmen though were more than competent, the no3 was the same fast spinner who looked to club most balls.

DT and Dave White bowled 3 overs a piece, both batsmen taking no prisoners and helped by a depleting number of ‘fit’ casuals – Goffy pulling his groin and Richie tweaking his calf.

The opener retired, and Flat White got the number 4 with the scores tied – caught well by Naren in the deep.
BOTS 114-2 off 14overs

Goffy – 4-0-31-0
Dan 4-1-22-1
DT 3-0-30-0
Dave W 3-0-31-1
Catches WMW and Naren

It was then off to the pub for a couple of pints and a lot of buffet (in the end)
