1XI RD 11

Match | Fri 13-Feb-2015 6:40am
1st XI v Boroondara, looking for maximum points this game we won the toss & elected to bowl. Looking for quick wickets, unfortunately we grassed a couple of early chances & it took until the 22 over to claim the 1st wicket. We battled hard until tea with the score being 3/110 from 43 overs. After tea things really went our way & we picked up the remaining 7 wickets for 41 runs in just 12 overs. Spin twins Shane MacGregor & myself picked up 7/48 from 21 overs, whilst Rick Alabaster continued his recent good form finishing with the very tidy figures of 2/2 off 5 overs & Kusal Pathiraja bowled with good pace picking up 1/28 off 9. With 22 overs to bat we went searching for quick runs aiming to be in front (or close to) on day 1. That plan took a hit when we lost Dave Bennett with the score slightly less than 1! David Jensen (44) & Jake Alabaster (61no) then combined for a 101 run partnership, before we lost a couple of wickets late chasing the target. At stumps we are in a strong position at 4/120 & hopefully able to push on next week & take all the points. Congratulations Macca, an awesome display of leg spin bowling. Bet the old body is feeling the pinch today!!
