Kensington U14 Reds v’s East Torrens – Round 1 Match Report
After losing the toss 14 Reds were made to bowl in very windy conditions (40-50km winds) at Rostrevor.
ET’s batted solidly and Kensi struggled a little with left / right combination and windy conditions. Three dropped / missed catches in Slips / Wk. and after 35 overs ET’s were 3/118 from 35 overs and not looking good.
However after Tea Kensi made a remarkable recovery taking 7/44 and ET’s were all out in last over of the day for 162. Sims 3/26 with Warrick, Musster and Bilsborow all 2 each.
Turned up the next week and confronted by a pitch softer, greener, longer and slower than week prior. After a slow and watchful start Kensi lost 6-24 in the 15th over and the game looked over and out. However a long and strong partnership between Sims and Musster raised some hope with some assistance from Cunningham. In the end all bowled out for 88.
Man of Match – Sims 28 runs, 3/26 and few catches
