Cardiff Solicitors XI -v- Swansea Law Society Cricket Club

On 21st July the Cardiff Solicitors XI welcomed the Swansea Law Society Cricket Club for a return cricket fixture at Llandaff Cathedral School. Having won the toss, captain James Davenport decided to bat, mainly in light of the fact that only 6 men had arrived on time. With a few stragglers arriving late Cardiff enjoyed an opening stand of 90 from Ian Bridgeman and James Arter.

After 14 overs things took a turn for the worse however when a spritely Chris James took a hat-trick dismissing Arter (33), Bridgeman (41) and Wheeler in consecutive balls. Davenport (32) and Ian Griffiths (28) consolidated the innings and veterans Mark Harvey and Simon Mumford provided cameos at the death to ensure the innings finished with a respectable 157 off the 30 overs.

Unfortunately it proved to be too little against a strong Swansea batting outfit who dispatched the bowling attack to all corners of the pitch to take them home with 3 overs to spare. Griffiths, Wheeler and Bridgeman all bowled well in wet conditions and afterwards the sides retired to the Butchers for a well deserved drink after the game.
