Match Summary 1XI rd5

Match | Mon 10-Nov-2014 1:24pm
1st XI def Mt Caths After loosing the toss there were a few (I counted 11 when I looked in the mirror) disappointed faces to take the field in the 34 degree heat, after a good start with the ball the batters started to swing and proceeded to take to myself. But a great spell between Naqi Haider and Dave Bennett brought the boundaries down, we were a little unlucky with some decisions not going our way but we were sharp in spells in the field and got a couple of runouts and finished the innings with them scoring 6/197 with Andrew Wright getting 2/33 myself 2/44 and Dave and Naqi 0/28 and 0/36 respectively. With Dave having pulled his calf while bowling I made the masterful decision to make him open the batting with Michael Muttiah and they didn't disappoint, they got us off to one of our best starts punishing the bowlers to take us to 82 off 7 overs before Mick fell for 29 off 22 balls Dave continued the punishment to make his 50 off 26 balls when Andrew Celle went out for 1 off 8 but that bought the ever reliable Ian Timms who controlled the situation well to make 38no off 59 but the star today without a doubt was Dave who passed his ton off 67 balls and took us home to finish 118no off 83. Amazing batting by Dave was a pleasure to watch great win boys 2/199 off 29.3 overs
