Round 3 Week 2 Results | 2019/20
THIS WEEK’S RESULTS:
A GRADE: Rd 3 vs Plympton Away week two.
End of week one we faced 14 overs and were 1/22 overnight chasing 194 for the win.
Very optimistic about chasing down this total with a very deep batting list Plympton bowled well with continuous wickets falling.
We were restricted to 5/42 before a small fight back from our middle order but in the end didn’t offer a lot and were bowled out for 124 with 38 overs remaining in the day.
Notable mentions with the bat
Ferris 35 from 49 balls
Haussen 32 from 56 balls
A lot of work needs to be done on our batting before we play ICC at the Dene next week.
Well done to Steve Davenport for 450 games, Brett Chilton for 350, Dave Benson for 100 and this coming game will be Josh Haussen’s 150 and life membership
B GRADE: B Grade Round 3 report
We were chasing 144 on a slow Hawthornedene deck. We wanted to apply ourselves and make up for our lack of grit last game. Our top order certainly did this, digging in well, almost too well with us at 1/36 after 30 overs. We were able to lift the scoring rate from 4/73 to have a 5th wicket partnership between Borda and J Benson to take us to 127. Laurence batted well for his 26 from 46 against a Southern team with slightly ruffled feathers. Others to do well with the bat were J Benson 44 from 46 balls, Pablo 26 from 131 balls, Tyson Clark 17 from 65 balls, and Willy Baird coming in at the end with a bad back to score 11* from 13 balls. Congratulations to the team on our first win of the season!
C GRADE: C Grade wk 2 vs Adelaide Lutheran
After convincingly winning first innings in week 1 we sent Adelaide Lutheran in to bat again. After a good start bowling we took early wickets having the opposition 6 for 58 with just 4 wickets away from an outright win. The Adelaide Lutheran tailenders then dug in and we found them difficult to get out when they were just blocking ! they chewed up the overs we needed to score the winning runs. In the 53rd over we dismissed them for 142 leaving us 87 to get off just 10 overs. We went out hard to chase down the win but finished up short, unable to bring home the outright win. A solid victory however with a win in the next game taking us from 7th to 4th on the ladder. Best with the ball in the 2nd innings was Nick Spano 3 for 16 off 10 overs, Jarryd Simister 3 for 29 off 10 overs and Jarrad Thompson 2 for 35 off 9 overs.
D GRADE: Unfortunately due to unfavourable oval conditions, this week’s match was abandoned without a ball being bowled on Saturday.
E GRADE: Bundling South Rd out for 147, the Ramblers had all day to hit the runs. Opening with Ben Kean and Chilly, we were in a bit of trouble in losing wickets for not many runs (3/43). However the opening batsmen and Jordan Rowley at first drop, did soak up some overs and saw the opening bowlers off. Enter big Fish, and naturally his first ball was slammed through cow corner for four, finishing with with 57runs in 35balls. With Fish out we were 4/92. Enter Ricko Vale and Ashley Bates, who from that point got us over the line with no further loss. Ricko hit 46 and Ashley supported him well on nine very important runs. We passed their score
with 4/154 after about the 45th over. Excellent resilience was shown through our innings in being patient and waiting for the right ball to score runs.
Another great win from the Ramblers E grade making it two wins from three rounds.
UNDER 16’s: The lads turned up today keen to chase down Mitchell Park’s 9/145.
We set some targets today with 1st being to have the top order bat through 10 overs, retire and give us a solid foundation. At the first drinks break we were 2/66 and well placed with 2 retired back in the shed.
The next target was to replicate the first session and at the second drinks break we had put on another 63 for the loss of a further 2 wickets and 5 batsmen retired.
The target for the last session was to get the runs required and then bat out the full 50 overs, which we did, so it was tick, tick, tick.
The lads batted well together today, ran well, called well and looked after each other to achieve the result, finishing 7/174 from 50 overs, and our first win of the season by 29 runs.
Batting, Aaron 38, Joel 18, Ben Wender 16, Ashley 10 and shoring up the innings were Ryan 26 no and Josh 23 no, both off 20 overs. Well done to all the lads.
A really satisfying win, played in great spirits against a great group of lads from Mitchell Park.
Cheers and see you at the cricket. Daz
UNDER 14’s: Day two of our match against Coromandel Valley CC Green, was almost as chilly as last week! CVCC Green batted for two more overs, adding five runs to their score, for the loss of 1 wicket. This meant we were chasing a total of 153. The message was to value your wicket and build an innings. Despite best efforts, our wickets fell at regular intervals, although we managed to have 3 batsmen retire and return to the crease. Well done to Liam B, who remained not out on 16 runs and Josh M made 12 runs, including 2 boundaries. Coromandel Valley Green won by 81 runs. Next week sees us at Weymouth, so hopefully a home ground advantage may see the runs flow!
UNDER 12’s: This week the U12’s played Happy Valley at Waymouth Oval. This week’s captain (Charlie Fisher) lost the toss and the opposition decided to bat first which suited us as the ground was still really wet.
The bad weather did stay away this week – which was a bonus.
The boys are bowling a good line and length and not giving the opposition many loose balls to hit. We put a lot of pressure on Happy Valley in the field holding all our catches and a really good run out.
This week saw a good spread of wicket takers again with Euan, Aarnav and Lachlan taking 1 wicket each and James Murphy being the pick of the bowlers with 2/21.
The batting is really pleasing to watch. The boys are batting intelligently, pushing singles around and hitting boundaries when they get a loose delivery.
The communication and running between the wickets has seen a massive improvement. The best with the bat this week was Charlie Fisher making 38 runs (no), with close follow up by Henry Dunk 23 (no) and James Murphy 15 (no).
UNDER 10’s: What a great team effort by the Ramblers on Sunday. It was a hat-trick coin toss for us and the captain (James) sent Cove in to bat.
This week at training we focused on fielding and calling between the wickets. It was fantastic to see in the field that every ball was backed up and the team’s efforts were rewarded with 2 run outs (Bonnie and Dylan) and a couple of close ones hitting the stumps. Jasper and Mitch performed wicket keeping duties well and stopped many balls.
Bowling by all the players is improving with a number of solid wickets taken by Bonnie (2) and Dylan (1).
The team made their most runs yet off the bat (52) against Cove’s 57. Calling between the wickets were clear and confident and everyone scored runs. James, Mitch, Dylan and Archie all made 10+ runs and Jasper had another “not out”. Eamonn also had some solid hits and good running between the wickets.
Next week is a bye for the U10s so the parents can get some well-deserved rest.
