CLASSICS ROUND 5 v WARRINGAH AT CAMPERDOWN OVAL, CAMPERDOWN ON SUNDAY 8 DECEMBER 2019: REPORT BY STUART RIDGE
Cricketers’ Club won the toss and elected to bat against an unbeaten Warringah.
Scoring wasn’t easy against an accurate opening attack and we lost Mike Pinter early. Pete Nielsen and Glenn Mortell consolidated but the steady Warringah pair both completed tight 9 over spells. Just as we were looking to build, Glenn was bowled trying to force the pace and Peter had to retire with a calf tear. After the double bowling change, Mick McCormick also fell cheaply to leave us effectively 4 down for 62 at drinks.
Fortunately, our trio of lefties were able to pick things up against the change bowlers with Martin Spieser just falling short of retirement for a well made 27, President Brooks threatening another explosive knock before being robbed of a third six by a fingertip catch on the boundary, and Andrew Spedding getting to his 30* with the last ball of the innings to take us to a more competitive 175 at tea.
Stuart Ridge and Mick Knox both picked up a valuable early wicket to set back the Warringah run chase which then proceeded to 32 without further loss in the first 10 overs. Greg Brooks replaced the skipper, slotting into a great spell of stump to stump bowling. He joined Knox to strangle the Warringah innings, picking up a couple of wickets each with a succession of batsmen bowled or trapped in front and only 15 more runs added through to the drinks break,
Any hope of a Warringah recovery was smashed when a fired up Brooksie got another one through the defences of the Warringah skipper first ball after drinks in a perfect response to the send-off he had received in our innings.
A cameo from the Warringah number 9 delayed the victory push before the President completed a well deserved 5 wicket haul and David Craig finished things off with a neat caught and bowled to round out a clinical performance from the bowling unit.
Not quite the same excitement as the nail biters against Georges River and Mosman last year but a great all round effort against one of the top sides.
The Team was (playing 12): Mike Pinter (5), Peter Nielsen (24* ret hurt), Glenn Mortell (w) (15), David Benson (8), Mick McCormick (5), Martin Speiser (27), Greg Brooks (23), Andrew Spedding (31), Garry James (12), Stuart Ridge (c) (6), David Craig (4*), Mick Knox (dnb)
