Match vs Haddocks, Pontcanna

Author: Dave  |  Category: Matches

After going down to Cardiff Asians Northern took on a team at the same end of the table as themselves.

Being put into bat on what was probably the flattest and hardest outfield Pontcanna have ever served up Northern knew a decent score would be required.  In form Jarryd Wilkins opened the batting with Ben Horlock and the two raced along in the early overs before Ben lobbed a straightforward catch to mid on and although Charles Brain came in looking confident Snowy’s quickfire 20 ended as a carbon copy of Ben’s dismissal.

This brought Vaile in to bat following his confidence boosting 14 earlier in the week and he rotated the strike well allowing Brain to play his shots as the runs kept coming.  Then looking to put a full toss into Sophia Gardens Charles picked out mid off and his swashbuckling 22 came to a close.  Ashley Chedzoy came and went for 6 and Ashish Chatap edged behind for a single exposing Northern’s lengthy tail.

Dan Jones however had other ideas and with Jimmy starting to attack too and some excellent running they both started to build the highest partnership of the innings and when the final batting point looked doubtful with 2 overs remaining a few more boundaries and a last over of 14 placed Northern on a handy 131.  Jimmy was run-out off the last ball for 34 and Dan a career best 16NO.

Northern had every reason to believe enough runs were on the board given Haddocks previous matches but Walker and Musgrove started well and Horlock’s first over was expensive but he pulled one out of the bag when Jimmy held a catch off the last ball when 13 runs had come off the previous 5.

Clarke came on and bowled 2 mixed overs but took another and at the other end Chatap took two wickets, one ball clipping the very top of the off bail and the other a plumb LBW decision.  Perkins replaced Chatap and bowled his best spell in a while taking 2 wickets for 12 off 4 overs and Brain’s two over spell took 2 wickets and was only spoiled by a big six over his head.  Only one more wicket for maximum points was required with 2 overs to go but it just wouldn’t come as Workman and Preece dug in and after Snowy took some stick in the penultimate over going for 13 it was Ashley who shattered the stumps with 3 balls to go as Haddocks tried to get themselves another batting point.  All out for 93 and 38 runs short of Northern’s total.

An excellent performance and our first 20 pointer in a good while and it was good to see the full bowling arsenal get a chance to bowl.
