Match Report [by various]

On a fine balmy (barmy?) Chiswick evening the Dodgers came unstuck against a bunch of beefy Safs. We were a bowler or two light and they had 5 or 6 players who hit everything aerial which gave real value from long boundaries and slow outfields. We also fielded very poorly to compound things.

Chasing a high total we forfeited the top order to early slogging and a low ball (Pete Lee-RAIL). We were 17-4 after 7 overs at one point. We then rallied to avoid our worst ever score (a lowly 50 Dodgers stats fans). But they had a lot of bowling options including a leg break bowler who turned it square and got the ball to lift horribly. With better catching we might have been all out for less than 50.
