How Manly Did You Say Cricket Was?


The Cowgirls beat Hels Belles 8-2.


The Cricket 3rd Team beat Bath Exiles 2nd Team by 7 wickets. It was  a sultry afternoon on a sticky wicket, Exiles won the toss and decided to bat. Few couple have imagined that the words “hartick ball” and “DC II” would be mentioned in the the same sentence before the day was out, however with three regular bowlers missing the moth balls were removed from every crevice and DC II was sent into action. With batsmen failing to handle his pace, or lack of it, DC II found himself bumbling up to the wicket to deliver a hatrick ball…. unfortunately it was a wide, but still finishing on figures of 6-0-22-2 was a good days work. Gary bowled 8-1-18-2 and Pagey excelled behind the stumps as Exiles were pinned back to 141 for 7 off their 40 overs. Unfortunately the Cowboys best fielding of the afternoon went unrewarded as two clear run outs were not given, the first of which was a stunning direct hit by Gary fielding at point. Stevo then managed to break his horrendous run of ducks as he and Grover put on 44 of the first wicket. Justine and Gary (44 of 21 balls!) brought the Cowboys home with Gary hitting 3 huge sixes, the last of which won the game, in 31.5 overs, just as the heavens opened, .


The Cricket 1st Team lost to Old Bristolians Westbury Sunday 2nd Team by 5 wickets. The misery of the 1st Team continued this week with Duncan’s finger injury being confirmed as a break. There have now been three broken digits in the 1st team this season. The Cowboys won the toss and decided to bat with Chris hitting 47 and Bernet hitting 59 they reached 205. A lack of available bowling was aparent again as OBW hit the runs off in 34 overs for the loss of 5 wickets. Sadley Chris decided to resign as Captain after the macth.
