A Turf Round 4 @ Boronia

Saturday 23rd November, 2013

Old Carey CC 9/104 (Rankin 40, Smith 23) def Boronia 66 (Reid 3/15, Merry 2/10, Smith 2/12)

When losing the toss and being sent in I never thought that 19 wickets would fall for 160 runs. After losing early wickets again it took two usual suspects in Stu and Muzz to steady the ship. Stu 40 and Muzz 23 kept their outstanding form with the stick and gave our bowlers something to defend. 9/104 our total.

Ball in hand knowing we would need early break throughs to defend this small target it took till the 9th over to get our 1st wicket. From then on though the wickets tumbled constantly. 0/22 to all out for 66, our bowlers executed our plans perfectly! Swamp in his first game in the ones for the season bowled beautifully with 3/15. Two a piece to Muzz and Tad and one to Rohan. Our fielding was sensational, with one of the all time great catches I’ve witnessed live taken by Woody at deep mid wicket! A fantastic show of grit and determination and as skipper the passion I’ve wanted all year from us really shone through. Now it’s time to get our batting right and giveour bowlers more of a score to defend each week and as a team we can go a long way.

Congrats boys on a very spirited win. Great work!!
