SEMI-FINAL
 

 

West Glamorgan

193 all out

 

 

 

 

162 all out

 

 

West Glamorgan

won by 31 runs

 

Choosing to bowl first, Gwent looked dangerous with the ball.  They took a wicket with the first ball of the game and had reduced West Glamorgan to 45 for 3 off 15 overs, including the wicket of dangerous player Shaun Griffiths.  However, the middle order then fought back but Gwent continued to take wickets and bowled the opposition out in the forty-ninth over.  The pick of the bowlers were Jarrod Bluck and Josh Harris with two wickets apiece and Lewis Coates was unlucky not to take more than the one wicket having bowled 10 overs for just 23 runs.

In reply, Gwent lost an early wicket which brought Lewis Coates and Lewis Pheasant together at the crease. The two put on a partnership of 70 runs and Gwent were going well. However, J Underwood had other plans and the young swing bowler ripped through the Gwent middle order to leave the Gwent side hoping that the lower order would bring them through to victory. However, it wasn’t to be.  With wickets falling regularly, Gwent were always up against it and were eventually bowled out with 21 balls and 31 runs left.

Best Performances: Lewis Coates 32, Lewis Pheasant 31

Gwent won by

277 runs

Gwent lost two early wickets, with the ball moving around, but Lewis Coates and Callum Reid responded with a magnificent 178-run partnership.  When these departed, Josh Harris and Robson Blake carried on the good work with an excellent display of powerful hitting, losing four balls on the big Aberystwyth ground.  Harris was rewarded with a fine century.

In reply, Mid Wales were bowled out in under 30 overs with Jordan Bachelor and Callum Reid taking two wickets apiece and Scott Bailey one.  The main man, however, was Jarrod Bluck who took his firsti five-wicket haul for the county.

West Glamorgan

153 - 7

 

 

150 all out

 

 

West Glamorgan won by 3 wickets

Gwent batted first on a used, dusty pitch at Ebbw Vale CC and only managed to get to 150. West Glam bowled extremely well and put the Gwent batsmen under pressure throughout the innings. This made Tyler Morgan-Huggett's fifty all the more special given that Lewis Pheasant's 28 was the next highest score.

In reply, Gwent took two early wickets but a strong partnership from Griffiths and Lazarus took the game away from them. However, there was a glimmer of hope for Gwent as they continued to take wickets, with U14 Marc Lezar getting two of them, but West Glam managed to reach their target with three wickets and six overs to spare.

Best Performance: Tyler Morgan-Huggett 57
 

Carmarthenshire

121 for 8

 

 

120 all out

 

Carmarthenshire won by 2 wickets 

Gwent batted first on a damp track and provided little resistance against the Carmarthenshire bowling attack. Only Lewis Coates and Marc Lezar showed the required application on a difficult wicket scoring over half the team's runs between them.

They also started poorly in the field until Marc Lezar bowled a terrific spell of bowling to bring the home side back into the game. It then looked like Gwent were going to win the game when Carmarthenshire were 51 for 6.  However some aggressive batting by J Morgan (49) took the game away from tem and Carmarthenshire finally reached their target with the loss of 8 wkts.

Best Performances: Marc Lezar 3-20 & 30, Lewis Coates 33

 

Pembrokeshire

139 all out

 

 

90 for 1

 

Gwent won by 9 wickets (chasing a revised target of 88 runs in 30 overs)

Pembroke batted first on a wet day at Chepstow CC. Harry Powell bowled well for Gwent at the beginning of the innings, putting the pressure on the Pembroke batsmen. Jarrod Bluck and Marc Lezar kept this going in the middle of the innings and Lewis Pheasant finished off the innings. Each of these bowlers took two wickets.

As the game had been interrupted with rain, Gwent were set a total of 88 runs off 30 overs to win the game. The batsmen approached the target positively, with Jordan Bachelor reaching his half century in the tenth over and Gwent achieving the target of 88 in only the twelth over, with the loss of only one wicket.

Best Performance: Jordan Bachelor 55

 

Mid Glamorgan

117 for 9

 

 

221 for 9

 

Gwent won by

 96 runs

Gwent batted first on a damp, used pitch and it was hard work for the batsmen with weather conditions in favour of the bowlers and an indifferent bounce.  Although several batsmen had good starts no-one really went on to get a big score. The highlight of the innings was Robson Blake's 38 off 24 balls and U14 squad member Matthew Jones contributed a good knock of 29 runs.

In reply, Mid Glamorgan lost early wickets as Gwent opening bowling partnership of Jarrod Bluck and Jordan Bachelor bowled consistently and caused problems for the batsmen. in fact they Glam lost wickets at regular intervals, which made it hard to chase down 221. This was a convincing victory but the final wicket, and with it the final bonus point, eluded the team.

Best Performances: Robson Blake 38, Jarrod Bluck 3-18, Cameron Tippings 3-22

Devon

291 all out

 

 

205 for 9 

 

Devon won by

86 runs

Devon won the toss and elected to bat on a very warm day.  One Devon batsman dominated proceedings and scored 138 having been caught early on off a no ball.   took his second four-wicket haul in three games and he was supported by Jarrod Bluck and Jordan Bachelor with two wickets apiece.

In reply, Jarrod Bluck led the way supported by Josh Harris and three batsmen - Mike Jones, Matthew Jones and Aled Burkitt - all got into the twenties.  However, nobody went on to make that match winning score.  Gwent finished well short of the Devon total but this was still an encouraging score as no fewer than 5 Wales players were missing and the three U14’s who played helped all did well.

Best Performances: Scott Bailey 4-50, Jarrod Bluck, 41, Josh Harris 30

 

Gloucester

210 for 9

 

 

 

211 for 6

 

Gloucester won

by 4 wickets

Gwent won the toss and elected to bat first on a hot day at Abergavenny Cricket Club. They managed to reach 210 for 9, which was well short of a good total on this pitch. The only batsmen who showed application was captain Lewis Pheasant, who batted 43 overs for 66. Jordan Bachelor also helped with a positive 20 not out at the end of the innings.

In reply, Gloucester initially struggled losing early wickets, however a positive 92 by B Ringrose, and 36 by J Cowles guided, Gloucester to their target off only 43 overs. The pick of the bowlers was Lewis Coates, who look threatening, but was let down by some rather poor catching by the Gwent fielders.

Best Performances: Lewis Pheasant 66 & 2-34
 

 

Berkshire

268 all out

 

 

 

205 all out

 

 

Berkshire won

by 63 runs

Berkshire’s openers Lincoln (57) and Higgins (97) got off to a very good start.  Against some rather indifferent bowling by Gwent they were going at 6 runs per over for the first twenty overs and looked set to post a total in excess of 300. However, the Gwent spin attack, of Lewis Coates and Scott Bailey, slowed the Berkshire innings down in the middle overs. Lewis Pheasant and Harry Powell were brought back into the attack at the end of the innings and Gwent restricted Berkshire to 268.  Harry finished with four wickets and Lewis and Jarrod Bluck with two apiece.

Gwent knew that Berkshire had posted a very good total and they would have to approach the chase in a positive attitude.  However, only Lewis Coates batted with any real authority with the next highest scorers being Stuart Roberts and Josh Harris with scores in the twenties.

Best Performances: Lewis Coates 77, Harry Powell 4-31

 

Dorset

146 all out

 

 

147 for 3

 

Gwent won

by 7 wickets

Dorset started poorly withopening bowlers of Powell and Bluck taking early wickets, which put pressure on the middle order of the Dorset batting line up. Wickets continued to fall at regular intervals throughout the innings, with wickets being shared around the bowlers.  The spin attack was particularly effective with Lewis Coates and Scott Bailey  taking two wickets each.  Special mention to Robson Blake who took an excellent leg-side stumping off the bowling off seamer Marc Lezar.

In reply, Gwent lost two early wickets but captain Lewis Pheasant and Josh Harris put on a 110-run partnership to see them reach their target in the twenty-eighth.  Josh made a fine unbeaten 76.

Best Performances: Josh Harris 76no, Lewis Pheasant 33
