Dorset

242 for 8

90 for 9 Dorset

won by 152 runs

Dorset won the toss and batted on a very good pitch. David Hawkins, Ethan Oliver (5 overs for 7 runs) and Sophie Smale (7 overs for 19 runs) kept Dorset to 60 for 1 off 20 overs when drinks were taken. Straight after drinks, Dorset ramped up the run rate with powerful hitting, excellent rotation of strike and, aided by some lacklustre bowling and fielding from the home side, amassed a further 182 runs in their second twenty overs. Despite this, there were some good fielding performances especially from Owen Harris (2 catches and a run out) and Matthew Hall (two catches).  Two players on debut, Kit Skailes and Evan Cadwallader, as well as David Hawkins took two wickets apiece. Unfortunately, Gwent also lost both Oliver and Smale to injury so were unable to bring them on to finish the innings.   

After tea Gwent were down to ten batters as the two injured players were unable to bat. After losing a wicket in the first over Matt Hall (17) steadied the ship, first with Tom Barry (18) and then with the debutant Charlie Gedge and they took the score to 72 for 2 when Hall was run out.  Gedge perished six runs later for a gritty 24 and the remaining five wickets went for just twelve runs.

Best Performance: Owen Harris 2 catches and a run out

Wiltshire

138 for 2

137 all out Wiltshire

won by 8 wkts

Gwent won the toss and decided to bat and got off to a good start with Rhodri Williams and Tom Barry complimenting each other – Barry (29) watchful and Williams (23) aggressive. After each of the above departed Rayner, Gedge and Smale all looked good and got started but departed. That left Ethan Oliver (23) to try and bat with the tail but Gwent eventually finished on a total which was below par.

Gwent take two early wickets through an excellent spell from Oliver. However, the other bowlers  bowled a little bit too short and allowed the Wiltshire batters to take control and they strolled to a comfortable win with some twelve overs in hand.

Cardiff & Vale

78 for 0

76 all out Cardiff & Vale

won by 10 wkts

Gwent made the trip to Lisvane CC to take on Cardiff and the Vale. It was a grey day with rain in the air and the home team won the toss and put Gwent into bat. This proved the right decision, as a strong bowling attack allied to some poor shot selection, saw Gwent bowled out in 21 overs.

In reply Cardiff & Vale chased it down their target in a mere 10 overs.

Mid Glamorgan

93 for 2

92 for 7 Mid Glamorgan

won by 8 wkts

Mid Glamorgan won the toss and asked Gwent to bat on a newly cut and rather damp strip.  The home side were soon in trouble against the opening pairing of Asim Hameed and Harrison Page who reduced the team to 35 for 5 wickets. Owen Harris, Adi Vishwakarma and Jonty Heffaran were the only batsmen who were able to graft on a difficult track but even they were unable get the team to a score of a 100.  Adi finished on an unbeaten 29 having scored a third of his team's runs.

In reply, Mid Glamorgan set about the target in a sensible measured way and despite setbacks when both Ethan Oliver and Kit Skailes took a wicket apiece they were never troubled. In fairness the pitch did seem to ease but six dropped catches did not help Gwent’s cause.

Best Performance: Adi Vishwakarma 29 not out

Many thanks are accorded to Monmouth CC and its members who put on the game at short notice when the Usk pitch proved to be unplayable on the day of the match.  The possibly below-par pitch is understandable given the situation and the change necessitated a change to a 35-over game.  This was a great example of a Club's determination to 'get the game on'.

Mid Glamorgan

76 for 4

75 all out Mid Glamorgan

won by 6 wkts

In a match reduced to thirty overs by the weather, Gwent batted first and finished with a disappointing total with four overs left. Last-minute drop-outs left the side with only nine of whom only three got into double figures.  Credit must be given to Evan Cadwallader who batted through the innings.  The damage was done by Jack Tozer with four wickets and Liam Wyatt three.

Mid Glamorgan reached the target comfortably in the thirty-eighth over despite a a good bowling performance by Charlie Gedge who took 3 for 17.

 Best Performance: Charlie Gedge 3 for 17.

Cardiff & Vale

230 for 5

219 for 6 Cardiff & Vale

won by 11 runs

Best Performances: Rhodri Williams 51, Noah Rice 50no
West Glamorgan

143 all out

147 for 8 Gwent

won by 2 wkts

West Glam won the toss and elected to bat on a very good Briton Ferry wicket and Gwent bowled and fielded with a high intensity and the opening spells of Evan Cadwallader and Ethan Jones reduced West Glamorgan to 22 for 5 and Gwent were well on top. Then came two fine partnerships between Callum Stephens and Rhydian George and then George and Osian Thomas which eventually took them to a respectable total . The bowling and fielding was commendable with Jones taking 3 wickets for a parsimonious 10 in 8 overs and Cadwallader and Jonty Heffaran two apiece.

In reply, Gwent lost two early wickets, Ollie Rayner and Tom Norton then made batting look fairly easy, picking up singles at will and punishing the loose ball, and put on 42 runs before Norton was Luke Salter's first victim. Salter then ripped through the middle order taking three more wickets and leaving Gwent in a perilous  position at 91 for 7.  Heffaran then joined his captain, who had been batting with great maturity amidst the mayhem, and supported him well as they put on 36 for the eighth wicket.  Rayner was eventually out for a fine 66 leaving 17 runs to win with just 2 wickets left.  Heffaran was then joined by Cadwallader and they calmly got their team over the line with 11 balls left.

Best Performances:   Ollie Rayner 66, Ethan Jones  3 for 10

West Glamorgan

130 for 7

Did not bat Match abandoned as a Draw

West Glamorgan won the toss and elected to bat on what was a very good Monmouth wicket despite all the recent rain.  They started steadily against the accuracy of David Hawkins and Tom Barry but runs dried up when Owen Harris and Charlie Gedge with their off-spin keeping things tight. Things changed completely when Kit Skailes came on.  He bowled with good pace and accuracy and took 4 for 20 in 6 overs with three of them bowled.  West Glamorgan had reached 130 for 7 with 9 balls to go when it rained with such force that the ground was soon under water forcing the games abandonment.

Best Performance: Kit Skailes 4 for 20
