Monmouth School

94 for 9

 

132 all out Gwent won

by 38 runs

Gwent's first game of 2014 started at a wet Monmouth School with a thirty-over friendly contest. Gwent won the toss and decided to bat in testing conditions with James Archer and Morgan Bevans putting on 31 for the first wicket until Archer was dismissed for 19.  Bevans was then joined by Max Herring after the fall of the second wicket and took the score to 73 until Herring was run out for 15.  Bevans continued batting and finally fell for a well-composed 51 which included a number of boundaries and some very good running between the wickets as Gwent managed 132 all out off their allocation.

In reply, the Monmouth innings started slowly with the opening bowlers, Euan Weaver (1-21) and Owen Humphries(5-6) bowling straight and making it difficult to score. Only Tim Andrew (46) provided any resistance as Owen ran through the middle and lower order to claim exceptional figures of 5-6 with all five wickets clean bowled. This allowed Gwent to restrict Monmouth to 94-9 off their thirty overs and there were also some good bowling performances by the other bowlers with one wicket apiece for Euan Weaver, Ben Davies, Sam Williams and Hussain Shahid. The bowlers performances were backed up well in the field as Gwent fielded really well with James Archer and Ben Davies taking great one-handed catches.

Berkshire

115 for 7

114 for 9

 

Berkshire won

 by 3 wkts

 

Gwent lost the toss on a damp wicket and were asked to bat first. Conditions were tough and scoring proved quite difficult as Gwent managed to total 114-9 off their allocated 40 overs. Out of this total, only Ryan Scrivens seemed at ease with the conditions as he scored 20 off 30 balls while Tom Franklin, Ben Davies and Max Herring and were the only other batters to reach double figures.

In reply, Gwent's bowlers did a very good job and new ball pair Euan Weaver and Owen Humphries reduced Berkshire to 19-3 off seven overs with Weaver bowling particularly well with pace and control. Gwent continued to take wickets before drinks and when the interval came the game was evenly poised at 57-5. However some lapses in concentration allowed a partnership to build and the sixth wicket fell with the score on 106. Gwent never gave up and took another wicket before Berkshire passed the total with 4.3 overs to go.  The wickets were spread around six bowlers, with Weaver getting a brace, and James Archer took two fine  catches.

Gloucestershire

94 for 1

 

93-9

 

Gloucestershire

won by 9 wkts

Gwent played host to Gloucestershire at Chepstow CC on a glorious sunny afternoon, won the toss and elected to bat in hot conditions. However, they struggled to 93-9 off their allocated 40 overs. The Gloucestershire bowlers bowled well but were assisted by some poor shots and uncertain running between the wickets. Only four batters made double figures with U11 players Joe Westwood finishing on 18 not out and Oliver Robson top scoring with 20.

It was not a high target but Gwent stuck at it in the field and bowled well to make Gloucestershire take 27.3 overs to chase it with Max Herring taking the solitary wicket thanks to a good catch in the deep from Harry Bachelor.

Cardiff & Vale    

The match was postponed due to the weather twice and not played.

 

West Glamorgan

135 for 9

 

138 for 6 Gwent

won by 4 wkts

Gwent lost the toss on a warm sunny day at Newport and were asked to bowl first and West Glamorgan started well with a opening partnership of 42 before H. Turner was run out by Lewis Watkins at fine leg with some great fielding. The score then progressed to 94-3 when Morgan Bevans got amongst the wickets.  He slowed the scoring down with a good spell of off-spin bowling taking 3-16 off 7 overs as West Glamorgan stumbled to 125-6.  Joe Westwood then took over as he took 2-0 off one over and also ran another batter out off his own bowling, as West Glamorgan finished on 135-9 off their allocated overs.

In reply, Gwent lost early wickets to be 22-2 but James Roberts and Ryan Scrivens combined to put on a partnership of 58 to take the score to 80 before Roberts was bowled for 17. Scrivens was then joined by Nathan Berry and they took the score onto 118 before Berry was dismissed for 15 thanks to a great catch at cover.  Scrivens completed his maiden 50 for the county before eventually falling for 54 with the score on 122.  Gwent then lost another quick wicket but the lower order held firm and Gwent passed the required total with more than 13 overs to spare.

Best Performances: Ryan Scrivens 54, Morgan Bevans 3-16

 

Herefordshire

124 all out

 

134 all out Gwent won

by 10 runs

Gwent lost the toss on a warm sunny day at Pentland Gardens and responded with an opening partnership of 82 in 19 overs as James Archer (59) and Morgan Bevans (16) started positively. However 82-0 soon turned to 90-4 as both they and the next two batmen succumbed to some poor shots as Herefordshire's spinners turned the screw. Gwent recovered slightly to 117-6 but then collapsed to 134 all out in 39 overs with Tom Franklin (14) and Sam Burgess (12) the only other batters to make double figures.

In reply, Gwent got off to a good start with Lewis Watkins (2-16) bowling Herefordshire's opening batsman in the fifth over. However, Gwent didn't take another wicket until the seventeenth over with the score on 46. Forty-six for 1 quickly turned into 49-4 as Gwent's bowlers started to get on top but Alex Hinckley batted well to make 41 and help take the score to 109-5 with 6 overs to go. A close finish was inevitable and Gwent's bowling and fielding tightened up as Herefordshire started to lose wickets at regular intervals and they went into the last over needing 12 to win. Hussain Shahid took two wickets and Ben Davies bowled particularly well at the death with 2-13 including 2 wicket-maidens but it was a direct by Lewis Watkins from fine leg which won Gwent the game with a direct hit as the Herefordshire batsman tried to push a single.

Best Performance: James Archer 59

 

Wiltshire

141 for 9

 

143 for 6 Gwent won

by 4 wkts

Gwent won the toss at Biddestone and invited Wiltshire to bat first. A wicket fell in the first over thanks to some good fielding by Ryan Scrivens and thinking by Nathan Berry. A partnership built to take the score to 38 before two wickets fell in two balls to Ben Davies firstly, thanks to a smart stumping by Nathan Berry, and then to a good piece of bowling to bowl the number four batter around his legs. Harry Bachelor was brought into the attack and he quickly dismissed the number three batsman with the score on 46 before a good partnership took Wiltshire to 95-4 before Max Herring struck. Wickets then fell quickly to leave Wiltshire 105-8 going into the final few overs thanks to Harry Bachelor claiming 4-33. Some lusty blows allowed Wiltshire to complete their innings on 141-9 which was a good score as Gwent's bowling and fielding was of the highest standard.

Gwent's reply got off to the worst start possible losing a wicket with the score on 13 however Ryan Scrivens (12) and James Archer (41) put on 40 for the second wicket before Scrivens fell to a catch at cover. Archer was joined by James Roberts and put on 31 before Archer was caught behind. Roberts continued to score freely but fell with the score on 121 for a well composed 38 to add to his two catches earlier in the game. A few nervy moments followed especially after the lose of another wicket but Ben Davies (14no) held firm and saw Gwent to victory with 9 balls to go!

Best Performances: Harry Bachelor 4-33,James Archer 41

Cardiff & Vale

141 all out

143 for 4 Gwent won

by 6 wkts

Gwent lost the toss and were asked to field first at Cardiff CC on a hot and humid day. Cardiff's openers got off to a solid start taking the score to 46 until a great diving catch at mid wicket from Sam Williams claimed the first wicket off Ben Davies. Jayden Goodwin completed a well crafted 50 for Cardiff before he was spectacularly caught by a diving Ben Davies at cover to dismiss him for 54 off Tom Franklin. Wickets then continued to fall at regular intervals to Franklin and Davies who claimed three wickets apiece as the Cardiff innings slumped to 96-6 thanks to some good catches and another great one handed catch in close on the drive from Morgan Bevans. Joe Truckel also took three wickets to help mop up the tail as Cardiff were dismissed for 141 inside 38 overs.  In all, eight catches were taken with Joe Truckel, Hussain Shahid and James Archer also getting in on the act to complete a fine all-round team performance in the field.

In reply Gwent started positively with James Archer crashing boundaries to all parts of the ground as he and Harry Bachelor put on 56 in 10 overs before Bachelor was run out for 14 by a direct hit. Archer was then joined by in-form Ryan Scrivens and they took the score to 76 before Archer fell for a well crafted 55. Scrivens continued to score freely against the Cardiff bowlers and, even though Cardiff made two more breakthroughs at the other end Scrivens, was still at the crease with 42 not out when Gwent passed Cardiff's score with eleven overs still left of their innings.

Best Performances: James Archer 55, Ryan Scrivens 42no, Ben Davies 3-15, Joe Truckel 3-21, Tom Franklin 3-33
 

Devon

123 all out

 

63 all out Devon won

by 60 runs

Gwent bowled exceptionally well on a turning wicket at Monmouth with spinners Ben Davies and Morgan Bevans collecting 4 and 3 wickets respectively.  They restricted Devon to a low total.

Devon's spinners, however, enjoyed the turning wicket even more and, with only Ryan Scrivens getting into double figures, Gwent were bowled with seven overs left.

Best Performances: Ben Davies 4-20, Morgan Bevans 3-21

 

Dorset

158 for 4

 

157 for 8 Dorset won

by 6 wkts

After losing two early wickets, Morgan Bevans andJames Rhydderch-Roberts set about rebuilding the Gwent innings with a 78-run partnership which was only halted when James Rhydderch-Roberts had to leave the field due to illness.  Nathan Berry (12), Ben Davies (15)and Tom Franklin (17no) made useful contributions to get to a respectable score. Bevans went on to score a fine 60.

Allthough Gwent didn’t take early wickets, they kept Dorset down to less than four an over and, at the thirty-first over, forty runs were still required Dorset still had nine wickets left. The next three overs then brought three wickets after which Dorset's big-hitter Bailey came in.  He was dropped when on one and then proceeded to hit five consecutive boundaries to finish of a match that was building up to be a close finish. 

Best Performance: Morgan Bevans 60

 

West Glamorgan

98 all out

 

112 for 9 Gwent won

by 14 runs

Gwent won the toss at Neath CC and decided to bat first on a good wicket but with a very slow outfield. Scoring was slow with Gwent only making 112-9 off their 40 overs.  This was mainly due to playing with adult boundaries but also to some poor shot selection as only opener James Archer, with 33, and number eight Harry Bachelor, making 24 not out, getting into double figures. Bachelor figured in a partnership of 26 for the last wicket with last man Hussain Shahid to help get to a total to bowl at.

In reply, West Glamorgan fared just as poorly with the bat as a number of poor shots resulted in them being bowled out for 98 with 2 wickets apiece for seamers  Shahid and Sam Burgess, while leg spinner Tom Franklin also snared two wickets.

Best Performance: James Archer 33
