Weekend Results

Weekend wrap-up 14th Dec.

Positive signs for Turf 4, Turf 2 fought hard to end the day evens, One-dayers won and B-grade boys have a tough battle on their hands

 

Turf 2

Batting first on a tough pitch the boys lost some early wickets but were steadied by Anir (21) and Jakey (16) who was robbed by being stumped without the ball. The rule clearly states the Keeper needs to have the ball in his hands when he breaks the stumps clearly did not apply in this case. The rest of the middle order contributed well to the cause and we ended the day with the score of 161. Special mentions to Alex (43) who played a great knock in difficult conditions to post his highest score in Turf 2.

Turf 4

After losing the toss and put into bat on a slow pitch by the opposition turned out to be a shocker of a decision as Abhi (66) and Chalmers (117) put on a 155 run partnership for the 4th Wicket to end the day with 9/252. Chalmers played Gem of an innings that included some dazzling stroke play combined with good defense. Abhi continued his good form at number 3 and provided good support for Chalmers. Chaddy’s 20 runs (1 more than Hennas as he politely put it) took the team to 252, the highest score for the team this season.

B garde

Batting first, boys posted 145 runs from 51 overs with key contributions from Rohan, Dharmesh and Ajay. They will have their work cut out next week with the opposition needing only 93 runs for victory with 8 wickets in hand. Judging by their recent results, victory is not out of sight but not guaranteed either.

One Day Side

After winning in 30 ish minutes last week, we faced a tougher test this week and with the usual captain Alby missing from the trenches after working extra hard last week, Doccy was left in charge to lead the troops into battle and he didn’t let anyone down bringing home the victory. Bowling first, we restricted the opposition to 126 from their 36 overs with Cowie taking 4 /32 from his 11 overs. While batting the usual suspects (Cam, Josh), a new opener by the name of Brock and eccentric Nelly provided the fire power to take us to victory inside 27 overs for the loss of 8 wickets.
