Results Round 5 Week 2 | 2019/20
THIS WEEKS RESULTS:
A GRADE: Rd 5 vs Keswick away week 2
After bowling Keswick out for a competitive 200 and having to face one over at the end of the day we finished 0/1.
Quietly confident of being able to chase down the total with a very deep batting list we started the day well with the openers seeing off 13 overs before the fall of the first wicket.
The next 4 batsmen combined for a total of 24 runs and before too long we were 4/52 and in trouble and ultimately fell a long way short, bowled out for 136 with 8 overs remaining in the day.
Standout with the bat was J Baird and Kanck who valued their wickets more than the rest.
Standouts with the bat
J Baird – 29 from 130 balls
Kanck – 21 from 62 balls
Haussen – 19 from 39 balls
Work – 15 from 45 balls
6 out of the 11 who batted scored in single digits and was always going to be tough to chase down a score of 200 when this occurs.
Next week is a new game Go Ramblers
B GRADE: Defending 288, Keswick had an opener on a mission, belting the first ball of the game for 4,they continued to race to 43 from 8 overs. After a good catch on the boundary by Matt Treloar the run rate slowed and Keswick were never really in the game. A good catch to AOK, and a direct run out to Laurence Borda were highlights in the field. With the ball, all of our bowlers were tight. Sam Davenport was starting to hit his straps and look like his former threatening self when he injured his calf and finished with figures of 9 overs 3/27. Charlie looked the best he has all season with 10 overs 1/33. Col Farrell was fighting remnants of the flu and finished with 10 overs 3/28, and JC was his usual stingy self with 7 overs 1/10.We bowled Keswick out for 110 in the 39th over. Other highlight was Col Farrell beating Steve Davenport’s record for arriving early at a game. Col arrived at 10:45am for a 1:30pm start!
C GRADE: Week 2 vs Warradale.
After posting a total of 143 from our 60 overs week 1 we were going to need to bowl and field well.
We got off to a great start having Warradale 3 for 21 after 12 overs with fantastic line and length being bowled and 3 of their strong top four in the pavilion. The first 20 overs we only conceded 45 runs and took the 3 wickets. We kept the pressure on the Warradale batters. The bowlers did everything that was asked of them after the 1st break and at tea we were still in the game with Warradale 6 for 101. We could have easily had them 8 down except for a couple of very obvious catches behind not being given by the Warradale umpires and a couple of dropped chances. We continued however to fight well to have them 8 down with still 38 runs to chase thanks to a superb bowling spells from Merritt Boyd and Dan Hayes. The no 9 and 10 scratched around with shots landing between fielders and edging balls for runs to finally chase down the total with only 6 balls to spare. A tough loss but probably some of the best bowling spells I have witnessed in the C Grade. The pick off the bowlers was Boyd with 3 for 32 off 15 overs, Hayes 2 for 32 off 15 overs and Rochow 2 for 24 of 12.
D GRADE: 260 runs was always going to be a difficult job for the young Coromandel Ramblers Development Squad and it proved to be.
Fitzroys opening bowler was out of their A grade side and it would be fair to say they won’t face two openers quicker than these guys this season.
Losing a wicket first ball of the day , and then the skipper going not long after meant the youngsters had to do all the work. We would bat for 49 overs which was great. Ben Wender was very promising with a hard fought 19 against a Fitzroys best. Luis Riley batted for a long period and didn’t take a backward step even after copping a blow. McNicholas fought hard, but it was Jayden area who really impressed batting for 23 overs for 20 runs and batting the opposition out of all chances of winning,outright. Vansh Sekhon finished with a huge six on his way to 14.
The Ramblers fell well short but I was hugely impressed with the ticker they showed in fighting the game out.
Thanks to Fitzroy who showed our lads great respect and were a fantastic opposition to play against.
Next week is Men’s Mental Health Awareness Round. I look forward to seeing everyone out at practice in preparation for Glenelg ANA
E GRADE: Having only hit 88 runs last week, and then have Keswick 6/47, things were looking positive. Opening with Ashley Bates and Joel Bates we had them on the defensive. Some excellent bowling from Joel we had them 7/48, and then soon after Joel took another wicket making it 8/60.
A tail ender came in and basically slapped Keswick’s way to passing our score. Ramblers losing first innings by two wickets. We bowled them out for 105runs with a possible 44 overs left in the day.
Ramblers went in again to bat making 113runs in 30 overs and then a sporting declaration, sending Keswick in to make 96 runs in 12overs. Hoping for us to take wickets Keswick hit us around the park making those runs in the last over. Disappointing for us, however it was a great game. Everyone did their bit and played their best. Highlights are
Michael Sadler 4/15, Joel Bates 3/20 and Alex Manning 2/21. Batting best was Gringo 48, Jordan Rowley a patient 18 and Michael Sadler a quick 15runs.
Unfortunately all our Junior sides were rained out on Sunday. We hope for better luck next week!
Under 16’s: Unfortunately we were rained out with bowling a ball and didn’t get a chance to defend last week’s excellent batting performance. Match Drawn.
Cheers and see you at the cricket.
Under 16’s T20: Round 4 T20 v Flagstaff Hill Friday 29th November.
With dark skies looming we were able to get a start to our game. We lost the toss and Flaggy chose to bat with light drizzle constant until the 10 over mark when the rain got heavier and the match was abandoned.
The game was pretty evenly poised with Flaggy 1/60, the one wicket going to a great catch by Captain Ben off Josh Payne’s bowling. A special mention to u14 players, Brad O’Keefe, Josh Martin and Jacssen Fisher who all bowled their overs early in the innings and restricted the scoring, Good stuff from these lads.
A big thank you to Josh O’Keefe who, when his game was cancelled, rushed to Joan’s Pantry to umpire our game as until then we had no umpires.
Cheers and see you at the cricket.
