JACK PACE ROUND 3 v RANGERS C.C. AT CAMPERDOWN OVAL, CAMPERDOWN ON SUNDAY 13 NOVEMBER, 2016 REPORT BY GREG BROOKS
C.C.N.S.W. were sent in to bat on a dry and flat wicket that had seen at least 360 overs in the past 7 days! Nonetheless it played okay which allowed us to accumulate a total of 199 all out.
Unfortunately we are losing wickets regularly and need to reset our goals to build big partnerships by occupying the crease as the runs will come if we do.
Ian Allmey (46 off 29 balls) got us off to a flyer and despite losing wickets regularly we scored at 6 an over. Soren Hughes 38 and Greg Brooks 23 put together an eight wicket partnership of 51 and we closed all out for 199 from 32.4 overs.
After tea Rangers begun the chase and were soon in trouble. Joe Scarcella (2-9) made the early breakthrough and was well supported by Shane Peterson and Soren(2-21).With the introduction of Angus Cusack who generated serious pace the task looked beyond them. Bowling straight and quickly Angus took 3-10 from 6 overs allowing Dave Byrnes (1-20) and Greg Brooks (2-9) to clean up the tail, all out 91 in 24 overs.
While all wins are crucial in the Jack Pace Shield qualifying rounds and we picked up a bonus point, our batting needs to improve if we are to progress further in the knockout stages.
