Dodgers v English Heritage, 15.05.14

South Park
Mistle thrush
20 overs (25 retirement, 2 runs for wide/no ball and no extra ball)
6pm
Sunny in parts

Toss: Won by EHCC and elected to bat

EHCC 85 for 9 (Shimoga (NJ)* 2/11, Khalid 2/13, Hilary 2/18 & Palmer 2/20) Lost to Dodgers 87 for 5 (Dollin 28, Hatteea 21 & Mason 9) by 5 wickets

MOM: Dollin† 3, Shimoga (NJ)* 3, Hatteea 3, Palmer 1 & Mason 1

Despite a few last minute jitters, Dodgers ran out convincing winners in this 20:20 against English Heritage, thanks to some tight bowling, sharp fielding (including an excellent run out by NJ) and two commanding knocks from Sacha and Mike (who took a nasty full toss to the throat on his way to 28 not out). The South Park pitch remains a law unto itself, with balls shooting along the ground off any length, and the match was also memorable for the appearance of no fewer than three mistle thrushes (see picture).

Dodgers v LSE, 14.05.14

Berrylands
35 overs
2pm
Sunny

Toss: Won by LSE CC and elected to bat

LSE 163 for 6 (Anand 3/23 & Shimoga (NJ) 2/24) beat Dodgers 146 for 6 (McBarron 51 & Dollin† 21) by 16 runs

MOM: Anand 6, McBarron 3 & Shimoga (NJ) 2

This is a match that Dodgers ought really to have won, but once again our mental strength in the long form of the game was found wanting. On a beautiful day at the lovely Berrylands ground, tight bowling from openers Imran and Vijay kept the LSE pinned back at the start, with NJ and John G keeping up the pressure well at first change. Even though we leaked a few more runs later in the innings, a total of 163 looked eminently achievable as we headed towards the egg sandwiches.

Things started well enough as Mike and Phil opened our innings, and we were never too far behind the run rate. However, the infamous Dodgers 'false sense of security' kicked in as we began to notch up dot balls by the dozen. The game slipped inexorably away from us, so that by the time the lower order were called upon to chance their arm, it was in a lost cause. A frustrating afternoon, all in all, and a lesson that we must approach longer matches not with a desire to hit every ball out of the ground, but with a little more intensity when there is still time to make it count.

Dodgers v MoJ, 06.05.14

Chiswick
T20 (25 retirement and 2 runs for wide/no ball and no extra ball)
6pm
Windy, sunny in parts

Toss: Dodgers won the toss and elected to bat first

Dodgers 145 for 4 (Hatteea 30 of 21, McBarron 27 of 21 and Shimoga (NJ) 24 of 12) beat MoJ 66 all out (Palmer 4 for 18 and Carr 2 for 10) by 79 runs

MoM votes: Palmer 10 and Hatteea 1

A convincing Dodgers win down at the old Chiswick ground, memorable for the debut performance of quick bowler George Mason, a magnificent six over long off by Sacha on his way to reach 30 not out, two further strong innings by Phil and NJ, an amazing direct hit run out by NJ, a smart catch behind by Mike, two caught and bowled and a sparkling four wicket haul from Ralph. Captain Carr also showed us his guile and experience as he turned in figures of 3-0-10-2. All in all, a good way to get the season back on track.
