    again.

    Top batting by Resha and solid from Buts, and bowling by Jack. Some of us are a little slow and some of us are a little out of form, it seems.
    REMEMBER: A couple of years in therapy, you'll get over it.

    That's a great fighting win, even when we looked down and out we fought back and took control. It's good to see a total where everyone contributes, and the lower order cameo's cap it off nicely. Gough, Patrick and (eventually) Pickup are stars. All contributing with both bat and ball.

    Gough pressing for FC claims heavily now. Can't ignore him for too long.

    2 wickets yet getting out for a golden wasn't good.

    Good effort guys, guess we were undone by a brilliant display of fast bowling from Goughy (well done mate ).

    Dissappointing on a personal note, leaked runs early, and didn't really make any impact at all with the bat or ball.

    Cricket Web Colts v Cricket Web Blue
    PDV Dome

    Scorecard
    Ball by Ball

    A heartpounding finale at the PDV Dome saw both teams head into the final hour desperately pressing for a favourable result. For Cricket Web Blue, captain Liam Camps jr. and Alex Crampton attempted to secure an unlikely draw, while Cricket Web Colts pressed desperately to seal a dramatic and convincing win.

    The first innings presented largely level honours as only 13 runs separated the teams. The Blues chose to bowl first in seam-friendly conditions. At the top of the order, Fitzsimmons carried the hopes of his team, scoring 119 of a total of 203 all out. The Colts made a brave start to their innings, reaching 132-1, then collapsed dramatically to their eventual score. Travis Demeza found life in his home pitch and he capitalized upon the conditions to take 5 for 60 as the innings ended in the final session of day one.

    The Colts then hit back smartly before the close, taking the day's total wicket tally to 14, as the CW Blue closed on 64-4. After solid progress on the second morning, Fuller and Cribb perished in quick succession to leave CW Blue struggling - 98-6. When Bowen was caught off the top edge for 27, Camps was left with only the tail for company. May-Quinlan was bowled by McNamara's arm ball, then Collins joined his captain. Camps had just 20 at that stage, but finished on 78 not out when Demeza was trapped lbw for 3. Some 72 runs were scored for the final two wickets, and the Blues scraped through to a slim lead.

    It was evidence of the pitch flattening out to peak batting conditions. And the Colts obliged in making use of such conditions. Fitzsimmons and Malthus continued their impressive opening combination, following a first innings 82 with 92 for the first wicket. A outswinger from Fuller finally dealt for Fitzsimmons - out for 56 - but the new batsman Towns settled in easily on the flat surface. He progressed smoothly to a second first-class ton of the season, scoring an even hundred to place the Colts in command. Malthus was less fortunate, as he was caught driving with 93 to his name. As in the first innings, top order breakthroughs triggered a middle order slide. From 270-1, the Colts floundered at 288-5.

    But as already accustomed this season, Kerr and Wilson were in fine recovery form. The two added 107 on this occasion, then Hancock took over from Wilson in another excellent partnership. The allrounder scored 51 not out, and Kerr was unbeaten on 74. Kyle Wright called the innings closed at 478-6, leaving CW Blue a target of 466 runs with some 109 overs remaining in the game. And the Colts' advantage was further stated with the cheap wickets of Young and Mamesh in the final session of day four.

    Again Crampton entered at number four, still searching for a defining innings at his new position. He and Dinu DeSilva fought to stumps at 59-2. The fourth morning brought more brave cricket and a dropped catch. Ranging comfortably to his right, Jasotharan put down a sitter from a healthy edge by Crampton. That his opposite number would go on to bat late into the game compounded the woes of the Colts 'keeper. But success did come late in the session, DeSilva leg-before-wicket for 66. It was a crucial breakthrough at an important moment, and Thomas followed up with the wicket of Cribb for 8 after lunch. Fuller faced 77 balls for his 26, but again McNamara's arm ball landed perfectly, and he removed the offbail. Before he could get set at the crease, Rob Bowen too returned to the pavilion. He was outfoxed by the flight of McNamara and caught at slip for 3.

    Cricket Web Blue entered the final session with 4 wickets in hand and the last recognized batsmen at the crease. Crampton, on 62, and Camps, on 1, played desperately for their team, fending off spin and pace alike in crawling into the final hour of the game. Wright stacked the slip cordon, then found the edge of Crampton's bat. At fourth slip McNamara grabbed a stunner to his left. With 6.4 overs left in the game, the Colts sensed blood. A fierce bouncer from Wright provide a simple catch to leg slip, and CW Blue were down to their final two wickets with 6 overs remaining. Camps batted 11 of the next 12 balls, but left Collins to face a full over from Nick Hancock. He survived.

    Wilson replaced an exhausted Wright, and Camps played watchfully to see through another maiden. The penultimate over saw Hancock slip past Collins' edge on 3 occasions, but there was no luck for the Colts. The final over arrived with 2 wickets in the game for either side. For the Blues there was some measure of relief, as Camps started on strike. The first ball, a yorker, cannoned into his pad, but was adjudged to be slipping down the legside. Dutifully Camps played forward and kept out the remainder of the over, breathing a sigh of relief in a thrilling drawn result.

    Cricket Web Green v Cricket Web Red
    CW Oval

    Scorecard
    Ball by Ball

    Two outstanding innings from Marc Robbins and a brilliant second innings spell of spin bowling by Sean Bennett led Cricket Web Red to a vital 5-wicket win over Cricket Web Green. In the final round of first class matches before the season half, the competition remains fierce, and while drama transpired at the PDV Dome, the CW Oval featured a thrilling contest of its own, as the Reds fought hard for their victory.

    As expected, Andrew Garven chose first strike when he won the toss. But his batsmen were caught out by the improving CW Red seam attack. Aside from another impressive innings by Nick Scott - 43 from 45 balls - the batsmen folded rather meekly, playing shots and then getting out. The innings of Xavier Rose epitomized the showing. He clubbed two sixes off Raghav in facing just 3 balls, but was caught for 15 two overs later. Martyn Corrin was in typical fighting spirits, but he too was out to a soft stroke, dragging on for 30. Tom Halsey's 29 and Paddy Gundry's 18 were then essential in seeing the Greens past 200, and they were all out for 206.

    In their turn at the crease, the Reds looked much more fluent, and they reached 110-2 at stumps on day one. The batsmen eased into the second day too, but consistently fell to loose strokes after getting set. When Kennett joined Robbins at the crease at 199-7, the veteran allrounder had only 17 to his name, having already faced 53 balls. Robbins' was a tremendous innings. Kennett lasted 59 balls and scored 1 run. By then Robbins had 42. Former captain Watt was lbw to Halsey for 9, and Robbins then had 55 - 257-9. As unlikely as any pairing, Robbins and Raghav carried the score to stumps at 286-9. On the third day Robbins increased his aggression and scaled to the heights of 94. He was then bowled off the bottom edge, leaving Raghav not out on 11 and CW Red at 309 all out.

    A lead of 103 was healthy on a deteriorating pitch. CW Green got to lunch at 42-1, losing a very promising Dubb-Lynch for a sleek 22. Bennett resumed with the second session. Immediately he found spin, and Kearsley took a good catch at silly point to dismiss Lezama. The dangerous Scott flicked Kennett into te hands of midwicket, and Bennett defeated Corrin and Read with uncharacteristically sharp spin. And there was no rescue act by Bryce Cunningham. He was run out after scoring a composed 38. Rose joined Garven and it was their that the fight was truly grounded.

    Both batsmen were aggressive in approach. Garven brought up his fifty by landing a delivery from Raghav on the roof over long-off. But Raghav showed great spirit, returning to york the CW Green captain for 53. Kearsley then held a stunning catch at backward point to remove Rose, and after a pleasant surge from from Halsey and Gundry, Bennett wrapped up the innings to complete his first 5-wicket haul of the season. CW Green were all out for 259, setting a target of 157 for CW Red to chase.

    Time was never an issue, and with the dismissal of Mørk late on day three, the game hung in the balance with CW Red going to stumps at 14-1. Cunningham took his second wicket - that of Luff - quickly on the fourth day. As Dauth flicked Gundry, he provided a leading edge an easy catch for Dubb-Lynch at cover. The Reds were 71-3 and in a precarious position on a turning pitch. Two more wickets fell in the morning session. Crucially, Kearsley was among them, caught at mid-on for 8. The other was Sharma, who had played well and scored 50 for the cause. Robbins and Dwyer went to lunch with CW Red on 125-5. They resumed after lunch and pressed on more confidently. The watchful role was played by Robbins, while Dwyer played with more freedom and aggression. Aside from two half-chances, the plan worked to great effect. Dwyer pulled Gundry over midwicket and the batsmen ran 3 to ensure a well-deserved win.

    Cricket Web Green 1st 206 all out (54.3 overs)
    NG Scott 43, M Corrin 30, TC Halsey 29
    MJ Robbins 3-37, DM Kennett 3-53

    Cricket Web Red 1st 309 all out (135.5 overs)
    MJ Robbins 94, H Mørk 48, RJ Dauth 36, DA Kearsley 32
    TC Halsey 4-69, AA Cameron 3-65, XPA Rose 3-75

    Cricket Web Green 2nd 259 all out (71.4 overs)
    AJ Garven 53, XPA Rose 41, PG Gundry 39, BC Cunningham 38
    SA Bennett 5-63, DM Kennett 2-61

    Cricket Web Red 2nd 157-5 (40.3 overs)
    A Sharma 50, CR Dwyer 34*, MJ Robbins 20*
    AA Cameron 2-19, BC Cunningham 2-35

    Cricket Web Red won by 5 wickets.
    Man of the Match: MJ Robbins

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Much better performance from the Colts, but we really should have won. Disapointing we didn't put more on the board in the first innings, with only three batsmen scoring double figures, that just isn't good enough, especially with an opening stand of 83. At least this game has solved the question of who our opening combination should be.

    On a personal note, it is very pleasing to have an impact on a game. Happy with seven wickets, but disapointed I couldn't produce the killer blow.
