Match Summary 2XI Rd 3

Match | Mon 27-Oct-2014 1:21pm
2nd XI vs East Ivanhoe Saints. Lost the Toss again, never the less we got off to a very good start, not taking wickets but containing the runs early, 0/23 after 10 overs great work Max Roberts & Ali HYdi setting the standard for the rest of the bowlers. Blake Ellis & Wayne Jewell continued with some very tight bowling and they were 2/71 after 24 overs, we were wondering when the onslaught was going to happen!!! Great News for us, they tried to take on Wes Howell and failed being all out for 142 in the 39th over. Wes Howell 6/34, Wayne Jewell 2/28 & Max Roberts 1/18 and one run out, Blake Ellis was on fire in the field taking 3 great outfield catches. We then set out to chase down the total and lost 3 wickets early being 3/36 after 10 overs. Warren Page 38 & Nipuna Welmillage 13 got us back on track before a very dodgy LBW saw Nipuna on his way, 4/77 with 22 overs left. We then battled on chasing down the remaining runs and just getting over the line again 9/143. Talk about a close finish. After being 8/118 it was great to see Ali, Max & Vish guide us to victory. Nail biting finish but never in doubt with Max Roberts 19 n.o and Vish hitting the winning runs. Great guts and determination today Cougars. We never gave up. Winning the close games are important.
