ICCSA defeated Kensington
The Es had another victory off the field — winning the battle of cobbling an XI together — but another heavy loss on it. Winning the toss against ICCSA at Adelaide HS No 2, we lost four early wickets but managed to post 8-141 from our 40 overs. Brad Rumbelow (32) was in fine fettle at the top of the order, while Abraham Tomich’s unbeaten 44 was equal parts skill, determination and concentration. So we gave them something to chase, at least, and even dared to dream of winning when they were three-for early in the innings. But after that they blew us away to win in 21 overs. David Hamann, in his first game of the season, bowled with some serious wheels to take two wickets. James Iannucci took a wicket in his first over but was soon out of the attack with a hamstring injury. Walter Hamann had a ripper game — smashing 15 in the last few overs and taking 1-21 from six overs. But the bottom line is we’re 0-4 and still really struggling for numbers (thanks to all of you who have filled in or found us players). The dream of back to back flags is gone — we’ll need to fight like hell to avoid relegation.
