Dodgers v Green Sox, 27.07.14

Chiswick
35 overs
2pm
Bright & Sunny

Toss: Won by Dodgers and elected to bat first

Dodgers 155 for 10 (Hanspal 28, Dollin 23 & McBarron 19) lost to Green Sox 156 for 9 (Shahin 4/40, Cooper 1/12 & Hilary 1/12) by 1 wicket

MOM: Shahin 10 & Hanspal 1

Another afternoon loss for Dodgers...apart from the opening batsmen everyone played like a T20 game and failed to make as many runs as we did on Thursday. Suppose we are all exited about no retirement and make some big runs. Green Sox fielded really well and stopped at least 30 runs and we were that many short and never in that game. Congratulations to Shahin on his hat-trick but it came very late only when 6 runs needed to win of 5 overs.

Dodgers v Blue Marlins, 24.07.14

Chiswick
20 overs (30 retirement, 2 runs for wide/no ball and no extra ball except last over)
6pm
Bright & Sunny

Toss: Won by Blue Marlins and put Dodgers to bat first

Dodgers 168 for 6 (Shimoga (NJ) 33* of 25, Anand 30* of 23 & Khalid 29 of 21) beat Blue Marlins 114 for 10 (Shimoga (NJ) 3/17, Hilary 3/22, Anand 2/20 & Shahin 2/24) by 54 runs

MOM: Hilary 5, Anand 3 & Shimoga (NJ) 2

This was a great game of cricket, played in the best competitive spirit, that turned out in the end to be a comprehensive win for us over a Blue Marlins side bristling with talent. Once again, the fleeting return of distant ex-pat Simon Cousins to the Dodgers ranks was enough to catapult us to a famous victory.

The Marlins' tactic of putting Dodgers in to bat seemed to have paid off early on when Chris, Ravi and Shahin all fell to high quality pace bowling. To lose three such batsmen with just 17 on the board looked ominous, but the run rate was high from the start and Mike held his ground to steady the ship. The arrival of Vijay at the crease turned the innings in our favour, as he matched stout defensive shots with spectacular boundaries, quickly reaching the retirement score of 30. Khalid and NJ took on where Vijay had left off, scoring freely and running well between the wickets. By the time John and Simon came in to finish off the innings (both scoring at a strike rate of over 170 for their cameo performances) the damage had already been done. We posted a total of 168, our highest of the season, against a side packed with excellent bowlers.

Victory was by no means assured, however, as the Marlins were clearly all able batsmen and the outfield was lightning fast. It would require disciplined bowling to keep them below our total - and Simon supplied exactly this to open our attack. John found the ball swinging nicely from the other end and picked up three early wickets before Vijay and NJ pinned the batsmen back, capturing five more between them. Shahin mesmerised the tail with his mix of leg spin and flippers, bagging a brace of wickets for his own tally, and we were home with over 50 runs to spare. No report would be complete, however, without special mention of the stupendous one-handed catch taken behind the stumps by Mike off Vijay, a peach which will remain in the memory for a good while to come.

All in all, a very good comeback after the loss of the afternoon game against the Marlins at the beginning of the season. The Dodgers summer goes from strength to strength!

Dodgers v LT Dinos, 16.07.14

Chiswick
20 overs (25 retirement, 2 runs for wide/no ball and no extra ball except last over)
6pm
Overcast

Toss: Won by LT Dinos and elected to bat first

LT Dinos 139 for 5 (Khalid 2/26 & Kashyap 1/31) Beat Dodgers 138 for 6 (Malins 30* of 19 & Khalid 26* of 31) by 1 run

MOM: Malins 7, Khalid 2 & Shimoga (NJ) 1

It's 6pm and only 8 dodgers in the field, oppo has the same numbers. NJ went for the toss and no idea why he toss the coin in an away game! Lost the toss and had to field with only 8 + 1 borrowed fielders. Opening bowlers struggled to bowl to the field and oppo were cruising with 55 runs of 5 overs, it was looking like a 200 target. NJ & Ash managed to get the run rate under control and by 11th over we had the full 11 on the field. Dev's second spell was better than first but still went for more runs. Excellent fielding by Dan, NJ, Matt & David and there were many chances of run outs one of the direct hit from NJ was turned down. Finally first wicket came as a run out, after a good stop Matt through it to the wrong end but still a chance and Dollin safely thow the ball to bowler Dev who took the bails, good team work there. Dollin took a excellent catch behind the stumps in Nitesh's bowling. Khalid bowled well got two wickets plus a last ball run out too. Oppo scored quickly and 2 of the retired batsmen played really well, managed to put a very competitive score of 139 runs.

Dodgers has a very strong line up all the way to 11 and went to bat positively as we have posted/chased such scores comfortably this season. Dollin facing the first ball played a nice ground shot to mid off but turned down the single, next one is the same ball and the same shot but in the air and got caught at Mid off. Dan started slowly once he got his eye played an excellent innings Vijay & Matt gave him a good support but scored only 6 a piece. Guy & Khalid who went before David to keep the run rate ticking, started well and played some good shots but struggled a lot in the end to put bat on the ball...Khalid who scored with 162 strike rate last week only managed half of it today. David joined proceedings oppo had a good combination of one pace & a slow bowler each end struggled to rotate. In the end 22 of 18 balls only managed 4 runs of 18th over then 18 of 12, David get's out and Ash & Nitesh chasing 12 runs needed to win and 11 to tie of the last over. Only managed to get 10 runs in the end and lost by 1 run. Stephen who scored quick 25 also terrified our batsmen with the ball and the umpires for giving wide. I bet he haunted in Matt's dreams yesterday. Winning streak of 8 T20 wins/6 wins in a row has broken today...

Many factors contributing to this loss - 64 dot balls, poor opening bowling, 3 players turning up late had to field 8 overs with only 9 players and turning down singles on the last ball to get/keep the strike. Vijay Anand to play as a just batsman...

Dodgers v Superstars, 09.07.14

Imber Court
35 overs
2pm
Bright, Sunny & Windy

Toss: Won by Superstars CC and elected to bat first

Superstars 164 for 6 (Palmer 2/25, Shahin 2/35 & Shimoga (NJ) 1/18) Lost to Dodgers 166 for 6 (Shajib 40*, Shahin 39 & Dollin† 28) by 4 wickets with 5.4 overs remaining

MOM: Shahin 5, Shajib 4 & Shimoga (NJ) 2

This is the second afternoon win and a very convincing one. This's the first game and a first win of three matches towards the Ken Block Trophy for this year.

Dodgers had gone through many changes to get the final 11, three new players playing. JLaw & Saurabh supposedly playing had to make space for Naidu & Shajib. JLaw who was keen to make use of his day off (retired) and fancied to be an official umpire for the game. He made it look very professional...did the job really well, there were few questionable wides and an LBW - aren't they always! With some pep talk from Dollin all went well.

Dodgers started with usual Naidu and this years opener Palmer and both bowled really well. Naidu only conceded 8 runs of first 4 overs and Palmer going nicely taking pace of the ball and using pitch well, hard to bat on taken two important wickets. Shahin, Aneez, NJ & Shajib all bowled really well and economical in their fist spell. Rats were less than hundred by end of 29th over and we thought this is one of the low scoring game. Here comes the second spell all went wrong 2 overs of Naidu & last over of Shahin, those three overs went for 55 runs. Vijay went crazy and hit most of the runs in that period with few sixes and fours with backing from Meyler, lost two balls as well. In the end Rats managed to put on a respectable score of 164.

Dodgers had few injuries and McB not fancying to open. Looks like Dolin had no partner to open the batting with as none of the non bowlers fancied, Syed (replacing Aneez who had to leave early) got the lucky spot. Both played a good innings with some good looking shots. Ravi joined Dollin after the dismissal of Syed who tried to hit a six...all going well and there comes the LBW! next two McB & Mohan (LSE games hero) looking in good touch but didn't trouble the scorer much and Dollin joined the doughout after them. This year's find Shahin & a new comer Shajib played aggressively and put on a 49 run partner ship with Shahin scoring most of the runs, up until he went for his 4th six got caught at long on. NJ joining the proceedings with 40 runs to win from many overs, Shajib stepped up the game and hitting two sixes (again lost another two balls) and NJ playing a cheeky reverse sweep. All looking to finish nice and early with only 3 runs to win from 6 overs. Rats got their best bowler Gundry back on and all the fielders closing in. Gundry bowled on to the pads of NJ and he nudged it to fine leg for a four scoring the winning runs...

Bright & Sunny

Toss: Won by LSE CC and elected to bat

LSE 240 for 5 (Shahin 3/13 & Syed 1/20) Lost to Dodgers 244 for 6 (Mohan 92 of 75, Shahin 62* of 42 & Shimoga (NJ) 34* of 18) by 4 wickets with 10 balls remaining

MOM: Shahin 7 & Mohan 4

Jatinder Mohan was timing it so well it was delight to watch from the best spot (umpiring), just unlucky to get out on 92! Exceptional performance by Shahin with both ball & bat, his leg spin was unplayable. One of the best chases resulted in a WIN, Click here for the previous one.

Match report by JC2

On a scorching hot day in SW London suburbia the Mighty Dodgers assembled by various means of transport including train, cycle and car for the annual match versus the LSE Staff at their impressive Berrylands facility. Not for the first time, proceedings got underway 30 minutes late. Dodgers lost the toss and were predictably asked to field. The flat track and still conditions didn’t offer the most promising conditions and as the seam attack of Cooper and Hassan was dispatched to all corners our worst fears seemed to materialise. Before 10 overs had passed Cap’n Carr’s prediction of a 300 total did not seem too far-fetched!

LSE’s openers retired after making a fifty a piece with some robust hitting. Dodgers exercised various slower bowling options during the middle period of the innings. Most impressive was the very tricky legspin of newcomer Shahin who took 3-28 and was at one point on a hat-trick. The LSE middle order offered plenty of aerial chances but these chances did not stick. One notable exception was an excellent take in the deep by Habib off NJ who put in a solid 1-35 stint. The run rate was stemmed and LSE totalled 240 (including 33 extras) after 35 overs.

Following the tea break, Dodgers openers McBarron and Mohan started determinedly and ensured that the scoring rate kept us in touch. Phil unluckily snicked one to the keeper for 9 but Jatinder was by this time starting to get his eye in and hit some impressive boundaries. Hassan, in at 3, was scoring quickly but his big hit to midwicket was spectacularly caught and he fell for 17 when more seemed likely. Westhead in at 4 never really got settled and made only 2. Fortunately, at the other end Jatinder had really got his eye in and the Dodgers scoring rate was around 6 an over at the mid-way stage. Things really got moving though when Shahin joined him at the crease following the demise of Syed for 11. He showed true all-rounder credentials with some fluid strokes and the pair put on 67 for the fifth wicket.

It was all going jolly well and Dodgers looked certain to coast to victory when Jatinder was given out lbw in, er, controversial circumstances by umpire Westhead. Habib replaced Jatinder but could not get going and it was a blessing in disguise when he fell on 4 to bring in NJ to partner the still-strong Shahin with the score on 192 with Dodgers needing 49 to win. The pair shared the strike well and kept the scoreboard ticking over with regular boundaries bringing the required rate down to eventually less than one a ball. The scores were eventually levelled at the end of the 33rd over and NJ hit the winning four a couple of balls later. And thus the first afternoon victory of the Dodgers’ season was recorded.

Shahin was Man of the Match for his combined 62 not out and 3 wickets.
