2nd XI taste defeat

Disapointing result at home to Creigau losing by 76 runs. With many players out it was always going to be a tough assignment. Asking the visitors to bat first stand in skipper Mike Lowe and his troups restricted Creigau to 182-8 with Nick Parker the pick of the bowlers taking 3-36 off his 10 overs. Special mention to Dan Pearce who after being called up on the morning of the game fielded superbly throughout the innings.

Bowling figures were as follows:

Mike Lowe.........8....1....26...0
Upinder Singh..10...1....33...2
Nick Parker......10...1....36...3
Danny Zaman..10....0...41...2
Neil Islam..........7.....0...40...1

Catches taken by Nick Parker (2) and Miles Wilton

Dinas set about the chase in poor style when stand in opener Neil Islam fell in the second over with Matthew falling in the next. Wickets fell all too regularly with DP at 39-7 at one stage before Mike and Upinder once again came together to add 54 for the 8th wicket.

Mike and Upinder both scored 31 runs with Mike being the last Dinas wicket to fall with the score on 106.

On a more positive note today we entertained a Stewards XI on the common with 4 Dinas Powys juniors excelling with both bat and ball. We edged a cracking match with the party still going strong when I left.

Tough away trip to Tredegar awaits next week as we aim to get the show back on the road.
