Nomads no match for Gaieties 

 A rather mature Nomads/Virgin side came seriously second to Gaieties.We dropped both openers and should have run out one as well all early in their innings.Profiting from these lapses Gaieties then ran riot over the Nomads bowling added and abetted by some bizarre field placing.Sometime Nomad Ben Nealon hit an undefeated century and Crowe 79 with a flurry of sixes.Gaieties thus declared at 278-2 off not much over 30 overs.In fact Denis de Caires had bowled well and one early over had Crowe playing and missing at every ball.
Shomit Dutta's decaration was generous giving Nomads the best part of 20 more overs to chase the target.To achieve that some of our top order had to make a substantial score. Despite the familiarity of the Gaieties opening attack of Nick Cowley and Matt Burton both of whom have played in many a Nomad fixture over the years Nomads reply went into self destruct mode when first Keith Alexander and then Charles Peerless gave their wickets away tamely.Lascelles prospered for a while until attempting a pull off a straight ball which did not bounce as anticipated.
Gaieties did then bowl a lot of lollipops, left arm and right arm..Andy Smith hit some clean blows before patting the ball back to the bowler. He was fatigued by then!. Paul Brown and Denis de Caires hit a few boundaries but neither stayed long. Jamie Lane batted with a runner and slowly the innings ground to a halt as he and Arshad Khan played out a comfortable draw while Shomit Dutta employed a variety of bowlers in an attempt to break the partnership. Thus the assembled masses were spared the tedium of the President stonewalling until stumps.
A sumptious tea was enjoyed.
