Blender 2.9 Cloth Simulation problems

I am trying to get a mesh plane to move down and cover a bowl and a set of planks using the Cloth simulation.
I have set up the simulation ie bowl and planks as collusion and the mesh cloth as standard in the cloth section together with self simulation.

but when I hit the animation play button this happens

when this should be the final result

The animation does not drop it goes at a weird angle and does not seem to collide with the Bowl of Planks and goes of in some unintended direction.

Also the cloth crumples as you can see.

Does anyone have the slightest scooby do as to what i have not done or done that will control this simulation.

Cheers
