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...
