Dodgers v RSSB Stingers 22.05.12

Hampstead Heath
6pm
T20
Sunny

Dodgers 126 for 0 (Dollin 26*, Marsh 26*, McBarron 25*) beat RSSB Stingers 88 for 8 (Shimoga 2 for 10, Hilary 2 for 13, Naidu 2 for 21) by 38 runs

MoM: Matthews 6, Dollin 3, Marsh 2

Match report: JH

Dodgers win again! Great batting from Mike Dollin and star signing Tom Marsh made light work of the Stingers attack until both retired with their 25s safely under their respective belts, leaving the field to McBarron and the OBE. The run rate dropped somewhat, but McB was swift to register his own 25 and leave the field to NJ, who rounded off the Dodgers innings with a couple of big hits to boundary.

The Stingers had a couple of promising batsmen, but Hassan and Naidu pinned them down throughout the first eight overs. Only one (the Antipodean who had reportedly played international indoor cricket) made it to retirement at 25, leaving Fox and Hilary a gentle bowl at some neophyte batsmen (and one batswoman). NJ and Captain Carr finished off neatly, but no report would be complete without due mention of the TWO stumpings bagged by the Cat. Matt Prior, beware!

MoM votes = Priest 3, Dollin 3, Wahi 2, Taylor 1, Shimoga 1

Match report: OBE

10 wicket win for Dodgers! (well 9 to be precise because we only had 10 players). They got 99 for 5 off 18 overs. NJ, Fox bowled particularly well. In reply Matt (one glorious 6), Dollin (one particularly lovely legside shot and a great catch), Priest (one super straight drive bisecting two fielders) all got their 25 not outs. And I hit the winning 3 runs – thanks for running them JC! So we were 100-0!

Dodgers v New Barbarian Weasels 16.05.12

Imber Court
35 overs
2pm
Sun and clouds

Dodgers 165 for 6 (Shimoga (NJ) 54, Hilary 31) beat New Barbarian Weasels 133 for 5 (Bennett 3 for 31) by 32 runs

MoM votes: Shimoga (NJ) 8 and Bennett 2

Match report: JH

Dodgers secured a second convincing win of the season in our first afternoon game, thanks to an all-round performance to which everyone contributed. Dodgers won the toss and elected to bat first on a grassy wicket that still bore the feel of many weeks' rain. McBarron and Priest provided a solid opening before Neil became the first of a number of top order batsmen to misjudge the speed of the pitch (or absence thereof). He was swiftly joined back at the pavilion by McB and Taylor, each of whom top-edged pulls. The star performance of the innings came from NJ, registering his maiden Dodgers half-century with a mixture of deft cuts and hearty sixes. Carr and Hilary added 40 more between them, before leaving the field to Bennett and Gray to close out the innings with some delightful hitting.

A total of 165 felt a little light for 35 overs, even if the clammy outfield was still frustrating anything hit along the floor. Yet the Dodgers bowling attack started magnificently, with the tightest of spells from new bloods Prem (7 overs for just 16) and Gray (ditto for 26). The run rate rose slightly with the first change of bowling, but NJ bagged the crucial wicket of Weasels star batsman Michaels, who has helped himself to more runs off us in the past than we would care to remember. Once Taylor had taken an excellent catch in the deep to remove the other Weasels opener, we were on our way. More tight bowling, admirable keeping by the Cat and another steepling catch by Prem at long on saw us home with runs to spare.

Dodgers v MOJ 08.05.12

Chiswick
T20
6pm
Weather: sunshine!!!

Dodgers 98 for 3 (Lindsey 25*, Hatteea 25*, Hilary 18*) beat Ministry of Justice 94 for 10 (Bennett 3 for 19, Hilary 3 for 17) by 7 wickets

MoM votes: Hilary (3), Hassan (2), Bennett (2), Lindsey (2), Hatteea (1), McBarron (1)

Match report: JH

Dodgers got the season off to a fine start with a convincing win over the Ministry of Justice. We chased down a target of 95 fairly comfortably, on a pitch still struggling to dry out after months of torrential drought. Tight Dodgers bowling (Hassan going for only 9 off 4) backed by excellent catching meant that an under-strength MOJ failed to post a high enough total. Strong showings from Lindsey and Hatteea, plus a crepuscular cameo from Hilary, saw us home.

The game was memorable (a) for Michael Dollin's sad demise as he was clean bowled attempting to sweep a donkey drop on his very first ball of the season - returning to the boundary, our normally phlegmatic opener smashed to pieces the innocent plastic box that holds the flags; and (b) more happily, the occasion of Guy Westhead's 1,000th Dodgers run. Congratulations to the OBE!
