Match Report

2nd XI v Bristol West Indian & Phoenix (H)

Saturday, 31st May 2014
West of England Premier League
Bristol & North Somerset

The Two's lumped to their first defeat of the season against Bristol West Indies and Phoenix at Chew Court. Batting first on a green top Chew raced away at 5 an over in the first 10 overs, mainly due to the Windies inability to bowl straight.

Bones went for 2 chasing a wide one, Lockie gone first ball and we looked in a bit of trouble, but Lee Bryant and Pat Jones steadied the ship with a patient partnership of 73 before they both went in quick succession. Lee for 38 and Pat for 25. With overs running out the tail had to put the pig up with the inevitable consequences of wickets tumbling. Jamie Dawson hit a rapid 13 off 4 overs, but the final total of 150 for 9 was always a bit on the low side.

The Windies as we know go for it from ball one. This they did as The Pie was despatched for six 4th ball. However revenge was quick in coming as Patel was bowled next ball. 6 for 1 off 1.

The damage was repaired though as Tom Vergo and B Gayle (no relation) set about the Chew attack. Fraser Thomas opening from the tree end bowled a great line and had the batsmen in trouble on several occasions, but the Windies cannot be tied down for long and both Thomas' suffered from the dot dot dot dot whack technique of the visitors.

Lockie came on from the pavilion end and Daff from the tree end and did slow the scoring down to 5 an over but too many balls were disappearing without any loss of wickets.

The Windies did slow down a bit towards the end, but despite Banco coming on a picking up 2 for 32 in 6 the game was over in just 27 overs.

Chew needed to have scored 220 and had a bit of luck to win one this, so it was no real surprise that 150 was nowhere near enough.
