Dodgers v Nomura 27.06.12

Belair Park
T20
6pm
Humid

Dodgers 145 for 5 (Taylor 30*, Marsh 30*, Shimoga (NJ) 24*) beat Nomura 144 for 7 (Gray 3 for 24) by 4 wickets

MOM votes: Gray 9 and Marsh 1

Nomura batted strongly, making good use of the short boundaries on the farther Belair pitch and running well between the wickets to post a commendable total. Top moment came with John Gray's first ever Dodgers wicket - which he swiftly turned into a magnificent hat-trick! Not content with this feat, John then notched up a direct hit run out, comfortably securing him the Man of the Match accolade before we had even started batting.

A target of 145 could easily have proved troublesome, and Nomura's bowling was of a high standard. However, Dollin and Lindsey set us off at a cracking rate, ably supported by Falla and McBarron. Captain Matt Taylor used up eight of his nine lives in reaching his retirement score, while Marsh swept to 30* with a succession of majestic boundaries. NJ struck a couple of spectacular sixes to take us over the finishing line with two overs to spare, ending the month-long Dodgers drought with a well deserved victory.

NB for all those playing the next game here, bring mosquito repellent.
