132 all out

164 for 5 Gwent won

 by 32 runs

Gwent won the toss, decided to bat first on a damp pitch and got off to a solid but slow start. Rohan Donga (21), Owen Jones (21) and Joe White (20) all batted steadily throughout the innings but it was Roahn Mohindru with 65 not out who really took the innings by the scruff of the neck with an array of strokes around the ground. Gwent finished on a creditable score of 164-5 off their 40 overs. 

In reply, Carmarthenshire also got off to a steady start and the match was evenly balanced. Harry Conick with 52 and Tiaan Sparrow with 32 threatened to win the match in a canter but three wickets fell in four balls and the matched turned dramatically in Gwent’s favour. Carmarthenshire were all out for 132 after being well set on 102 for 3. Rohan Donga was Gwent’s pick of the bowlers taking 2 for 6 in four overs.  James Kellaway also bagged a pair with Ethan Jones, Noah Rice and Mohindru taking one apiece.  They were well supported in the field with catches by Jones and Kellaway, two dismissals from keeper White and a run out by Henry Evans.

Best Performance: Roahn Mohindru 65no

Cardiff & Vale

147 for 5

146 for 5 Cardiff & Vale

won by 5 wkts

Gwent were asked to bat first on a damp wicket at Abergavenny and started slowly losing two early wickets before James Kellaway (35) andTom Norton (33) turned things around. However, after their departure Gwent struggled through the middle overs and, although they only lost one more wicket, they posted a below par score off their forty overs.

In reply,  Cardiff & Vale got off to a very solid start with Harry Burrows and Rhys Couston putting on 56 for the first wicket. Gwent then fought back with three quick wickets but a partnership of 74 between Rahil Idris and Fahd Ahmed took the game away from them.   Gwent took two more wickets near the end but it was too late.  Jack Hope-Bell was the pick of the bowlers taking  3 for 18 in 7 overs.

Best Performances:  Jack Hope-Bell 3 for 18, James Kellaway 35, Tom Norton 33


91 all out

92 for 1 Gwent won

by 9 wkts

Gwent won the toss and asked Worcestershire to bat first.  This proved to be the correct decision as Gwent ripped into the Worcestershire batting line up. Only two batsmen getting double figures as they were bowled out in 34 overs. Ethan Jones was Gwent’s leading bowler taking 4 wickets for just 9 runs. Yousaf Iqbal and Vidhey Maripuri both took two wickets while Abhijeet Kumar and Jack Hope-Bell took one each.  They were well supported in the field with Joe White making four dismissals behind the stumps, and catches from Kumar, Rohan Donga, Iqbal and Tom Norton who also caused a run out.

In reply Rohan Donga (20 no) & Roahn Mohindru (16) gave Gwent a solid start putting on 56 for the first wicket. This brought skipper James Kellaway to the crease and he finished the game in a belligerent style getting 26no off 19 balls. Gwent won comfortably with 15.3 overs to spare.

Best Performance: Ethan Jones 4 for 9, James Kellaway 26no


271 for 3

53 all out Gloucestershire

won by 218 runs

Gwent asked Gloucester to bat first and bowled and fielded quite well for the first ten overs.  However, the wheels came off dramatically and ground fielding mistakes began to appear and the number of dropped catches went into double figures. This resulted in Gloucester posting a massive score in their 40 overs with Freddy Sharp scoring 98no off 78 balls. 

In reply, Gwent got off to a disastrous start losing three quick wickets and never recovered. They were bowled out in the twenty-third over with only Roahn Mohindru (20) getting into double figures.  Five Gwent batsmen were run out putting the seal on an overall poor performance.


128 all out

132 for 7 Gwent won

by 3 wkts

Gwent asked Herefordshire to bat first on a damp wicket and two miserly spells by seamers Tom Llewelyn and Henry Evans plus the leg spin of Rohan Donga held them in check during the first twenty overs. Only Ben Yeo (27) and Ollie Langford (22) got starts for Herefordshire and they were bowled out for a below par score inside their 40 overs. Gwent captain James Kellaway finished things off with 3 for 6 in just 22 balls.

In reply, Gwent got off to a very slow start with Roahn Mohindru dropping anchor. Wickets fell at regular intervals at the other end but Yousaf Iqbal (13no) and Ethan Jones (12) supported Mohindru very well as he carried his bat for a fine 57no to secure victory for his side.

Best Performance:  Roahn Mohindru 57no, James Kellaway 3 for 6


130 for 6

129 all out Wiltshire won

by 4 wkts

Gwent won the toss and batted first on a warm day but got off to a very slow start and it was left to the middle and later order batters to post a total which was deemed to be below par. Joe White, who came in at number eight, scored an unbeaten 33 with good support from Yousaf Iqbal (24) and Ethan Jones (24).

In reply, Wiltshire made a solid start with Hallsworth getting a quickfire 22 but Gwent stuck to their task taking 6 wickets at regular intervals to stay in the match. James Kellaway took two wickets and there was a good display of catching with Tom Llewelyn, Ethan Jones, Owen Jones, Yousaf Iqbal and Rohan Donga taking one each.  However Freddie Higton and Kit Blomfield  batted very well to see their side home to the win.

Best Performance: Joe White 33no

West Glamorgan

207 for 6

132 for 6 West Glamorgan

won by 75 runs

Gwent asked West Glam to bat first but this turned out to be the wrong option as West Glam piled up the runs aided by a rather poor bowling and fielding display from the home team in very hoy conditions. Ben Williams scored a fine century scoring all round the wicket off all the Gwent bowlers and received good support from Oliver Rodgers and Callum Stephens.  Ethan Jones took two wickets while Joe White and Rohan Donga both took a catch and effected a run out.

In reply,  Gwent got off to a solid start and were 58 for 1 at the first drinks break. After this,  they failed to raise the run rate and fell well short of the target despite only losing 6 wickets.  The fact that the innings contained 175 dot balls (the equivalent of twenty-nine of the forty overs faced being maidens) points to the running between the wickets as an area of development for the team. Joe White, with 38, was the only one to make a significant score.

Best Performance: Joe White 38

Cardiff & Vale

164 all out

238 for 2 Gwent won

by 74 runs

Gwent were asked to bat first on a good-looking pitch and batted extremely well to post a superb total of 238 for only 2 wicket down in 40 overs. Roahn Mohindru batted the full distance for 98 losing his wicket off the last ball. Joe White (27) was the batsman out after an opening partnership of 69 and Ethan Jones then proceeded to score 57no in an unbeaten partnership of 169 with Mohindru.

In reply Cardiff & Vale started poorly, being 23 for 4 at one stage and then 104 for 8. However, a ninth-wicket stand of 57 by Sam Sheppard, who finished unbeaten after a tenacious 73 no, and Jake Davies (15) made the final score more respectable. James Kellaway bowled really well taking in 4 wickets for only 16 runs in 8 overs with Henry Evans taking 2 for 6 in 4.  Also, the fielding was first class with catches by White, Jack Hope-Bell and Tom Norton (2) along with run outs from Vidhey Maripuri and Owen Jones.

Best Performance:  Roahn Mohindru 98, James Kellaway 4 for 6, Ethan Jones 57no


132 all out

144 for 7 Gwent won

by 12 runs

Asked to bat first on a very wet wicket in Devon, Gwent did not get off to a very good start losing 4 wickets for 29 in 13 overs. However after the first drinks break Tom Norton, Noah Rice and James Kellaway put together two valuable partnerships to get Gwent up to a competitive score off forty overs. Tom Norton led the way with a fine 56 while James Kellaway finished unbeaten on 39.

In reply, Devon got off to a flyer with their openers Julian Hayter (31) & Morgan Couch (27) putting on 56 for the first wicket in just 14 overs.  However, after the first drinks break the opposite happened to the Devon batsmen as did to Gwent, as off- spinner Owen Jones' two quick wickets changed the whole complexion of the match. Gwent continued to bowl and field very well with renewed confidence and wickets fell at regular intervals  Finley Hill, with 39 not out, gave Devon a glimmer of hope but to no avail as they were bowled out in the thirty-eighth over leaving Gwent winners by 12 runs.  Abhijeet Kumar and Owen Jones took two weeks each and there were four run outs from Jack Hope-Bell (2), James Kellaway and Roahn Mohindru .

Best Performances:  Tom Norton 56, James Kellaway 39


110 for 8

115 for 5 Gwent won

by 5 runs 

Gwent were asked to bat on a green Llanarth wicket with Noah Rice (19) & Joe White (29) putting on 30 for the first wicket. Another wicket fell the very next ball which brought Tom Norton (38) to the crease and, with White, proceeded to take the score to 90. Two more wickets fell after this and the Gwent innings finished on a rather disappointing total after their 35 overs.

In reply, Carmarthenshire struggled to get to grips with the Gwent bowling and after a few early wickets fell it was left to Tiaan Sparrow to lead the run chase. A few dropped catches and missed run outs nearly cost Gwent the game but they eventually won in a close finish and Sparrow was left stranded on 53 not out. Rohan Donga took two wickets and there were run outs by James Kellaway and Vidhey Maripuri, who also took a catch, and a stumping from White.

Best Performance: Tom Norton 38
