Dodgers vs Agricola 24.8.11

Chiswick
6pm
T20
Fine

Agricola 108 for 6 (Taylor 4-0-26-2, Carr 4-0-18-1) beat Dodgers 88 all out (Taylor 25, Gigg 16)

MoM votes: Taylor 8, Carr 2.

Match Report by Matt Taylor

Some despondency hung over the Dodgers following recent defeats, but they competed strongly until the final third of this tie.

Losing the toss and taking to the field, Dodgers had only nine, but were soon boosted by a wandering Gigg.

Shimoga and Zaheer opened effectively despite bombastic batting from Agricola's opener/wicketkeeper/captain - restricting the oppo to five an over and taking a wicket apiece. NJ bowled the same as he heaved and Zaheer had his replacement, a dangerous saffer, caught by Taylor in the deep.

Carr and Taylor stepped in to the bowling breach.  The latter had batsmen caught at point by Fox from his first ball, lbw to his third and dropped by a diving Westhead off his fourth. Neil Benn and his Poisson Distribution breathed a sigh of relief.

Economical and backed up by good fielding, Fox and Carr stood out off the last ten as Dodgers restricted the oppo to 108. Five-and-a-bit an over. Straightforward, surely?

Sadly, it wasn't, as a steady stream of Dodgers couldn't adapt to the pitch and accurate bowling. Hatteea was caught at long on just as he was imposing himself, Dollin snicked to the chuntering keeper and Gigg chopped on after some choice strokes. Taylor was more adhesive but watched Westhead caught at mid-off and Zaheer, Shimoga and Fox bowled by Yorkers.

Even as Carr strode to the crease with 34 required off 4 overs, the Dodgers were in the game. But acceleration was beyond them. Carr nurdled but was caught, The Cat was beaten outside off stump, Taylor was dropped three times.

Dreams of 22 off the last over were quickly extinguished and your reporter was finally caught off the last ball, heaving to long off. A galling defeat - but a strong performance in the field gave the Dodgers hope for the season's last two fixtures, where the batting will surely come good.

The beer still tasted good, although senior members were seen drinking lager in a shocking break with orthodoxy.

Gaddafi was nowhere to be seen.

Dodgers v Treasury 16.08.11

Chiswick
6pm
T20 reduced to 18 overs
Fine

Dodgers 87 for 6 (Hilary 19) lost to HMT 91 for 7 (Cousins 4-0-17-3, Zaheer 4-0-17-2) by 3 wickets

MoM votes: Cousins 9, Matthews 2

Match report: JH

Another loss for Dodgers, again resulting from our failure to put enough runs on the board when batting first. The Treasury had brought along a varied attack, with one opening bowler managing successive wicket maidens and the other sending down nothing but wides. Dodgers continued to struggle, and HMT then unleashed a genuine pace bowler who saw off the other top order batsmen. On a lush outfield we managed only one boundary, and even off just 18 overs a total of 87 was never going to be sufficient. Despite pretty good bowling and fielding on our part, Treasury made it home with time to spare.

Let the game be remembered for the moment that Simon Cousins became the sixth player in Dodgers history to notch up 100 club wickets. Congratulations, Simon. You are now one of the sporting elite.

Dodgers v KAI Dragons 09.08.11

Chiswick
6pm
T20
Sunny

KAI Dragons 127 for 6 (Zaheer 2 for 30) beat Dodgers 84 for 8 (Hilary 19) by 43 runs

MoM votes: Hilary 8, Shimoga 1, Zaheer 1, Matthews 1

Match report: JH

As London braced itself for another night of heavy rioting, Dodgers went down to another heavy defeat - this time at the hands of a team we beat comprehensively last year. The Dragons started swiftly, running singles off almost every ball and regularly turning them into 2s. A slow and expansive outfield restricted them to only one boundary during the innings, but they still managed to clock up 127 within the 20 overs. Dodgers spilled a number of catches (some difficult, some easy) and managed to run two of the oppo out. Mohammad Zaheer, playing his debut game for us, notched up two wickets.

The Dodgers innings started well enough, but the pressure of maintaining 6 an over soon took its toll as Hatteea was run out to a somewhat over-ambitious call from Bennett. This was not a good omen, and before long the Dodgers top order were all back in the pavilion admiring the sunset. With the light fading, the tail wagged manfully but the writing was on the wall. Dodgers had been well beaten by a Dragons performance of strong bowling and exemplary running between the wickets.

Match report by Simon Cousins

Dodgers lost on a miserable afternoon to Buckhurst Hill and nobody had any fun. JC won the toss and Dodgers batted, cruising to 216 - 4. Hatteea made a chance-filled but still classy 82 (dropped at least four times), Neil a typically calm 48 (during which he passed 6000 runs for Dodgers) and everyone else chipped in. JC then sportingly declared, giving Buckhurst a little over 40 overs to reach their target. They could have done it in 20.

In monsoon conditions, Dodgers' bowlers were tonked all over (and out of) the park. Due to slippery grass, bowlers were forced to foresake run ups, as they bowled from any vaguely dry part of the crease they could find, while the ball mutated into a swollen cake of soap. But that shouldn't detract from the quality of the violent innings played by Buckhurst's burly keeper or that of his more refined opening partner.

Dodgers' lowlights included a six off Cousins that hit the top floor of the neighbouring block of flats and four dropped catches. Rare highlights included a magnificent spell by NJ, who in 17 overs bowled barely five bad balls (his figures of 2-80 don't do him justice), a good comeback spell from NJ's mate Prem and a magnificent catch at square leg by Fox, who was otherwise in danger of being decapitated.

In bright sunshine, Dodgers ended up losing by 7 wickets with 8 overs to spare. And being at Buckhurst's second ground, there wasn't even a bar in which Dodgers could drown their many sorrows.

Wettish start, then brighter

Dodgers 123 for 2 (Ford 27no, Howe 26no, Priest 24) beat RSSB Stingers 65 for 9 (Hilary 4-1-12-4, Howe 3-0-6-2, Cousins 1-0-4-2) by 58 runs

MoM votes = Howe 3, Ford 2, Hilary 2, Priest 2

Match report: JH

After considerable rain during the day, many had felt that the pitch would be unplayable. Instead it was a pleasant evening in the sunshine, as Dodgers notched up a much needed win against a scratch Stingers side which featured no fewer than three members of the fairer sex (at least one of whom had never played before).

Dodgers batting first, Ford and Smith set about the bowling swiftly until Sean (who had just hit a glorious four to the long on boundary the previous ball) was skittled out by a good 'un. After taking 10 balls for his first run, Priest then began to help himself as first Ford and then Howe each lashed out to retire beyond the 25 mark. Sergei and Tawhid helped the total along to 123 for 2, which seemed it would be too great an ask for the comparatively under-strength Stingers side.

And so it proved. Cousins was cruelly denied his 100th Dodgers wicket by being taken off after just one over (in which he had already picked up 2 for 4). Hilary narrowly missed out on a 5-wicket haul, while Howe bowled tightly for his brace. Tawhid threatened with three overs of varied length, and it was left to Bennett to capture the final wicket. The Stingers had been bowled out well inside their 16 overs and a long way short of the target.

Match report (such as it is) by John Hilary

Dodgers 105 for 9 (McBarron 30, Shimoga 21) lost to Science Museum 106 for 2 off 16.3 (Cousins 4-1-10-1) by 7 wickets

MoM votes = McB (9), Cousins (1)

A second Dodgers defeat to the Science Museum in the space of a week is not for dwelling over. We failed to register enough runs on a docile pitch with short boundaries; in fact, we did not lose a single ball in the bushes during the Dodgers innings, which must surely be a first for Barnes Common. Only McBarron pushed on as others stalled or departed around him. The Science Museum then proceeded to do what we should have done, hitting out boldly and scoring freely. Cousins and Shimoga were economical, the other bowlers not so much. We were beaten by a margin.

The only other noteworthy feature of the game was the presence of a vocal Green Woodpecker, whose laughing yaffle seemed to mock us from the trees. (For those unsure what this refers to, the yaffle can be heard here.)
