CLASSICS ROUND 8  v MOSMAN AT  RAWSON  OVAL,   MOSMAN ON SUNDAY 2 FEBRUARY 2020: REPORT BY STUART RIDGE

C.C.N.S.W. won the toss and batted first on a sticky day at Rawson Oval.

Some green tinges in the wicket gave some encouragement to the Mosman opening attack. While scoring was difficult, Mick Weaver and Mike Pinter built a solid opening stand of 48 with Pinter retiring for a well made 32* in the 14th over.

Peter Nielsen then fell quickly for a duck and ‘Weaves’  (13) was unable to build on his start leaving us 2 down for 64 at drinks.

Mick McCormick and Peter Rolls chipped in with 21 and 18 and a couple of nicely struck boundaries each. However we struggled to find the necessary acceleration against the change bowlers only bringing up our 100 in the 31st over. The lower order picked up the pace in the last 10 overs with a couple of mighty hits from Greg Brooks to the long Rawson boundaries getting us to a more respectable 8-159 at tea.

Missing some key bowlers, the experimental opening partnership of the medium fast Stuart Ridge and the slow off spin of Garry James took the new ball. Stuart found some life in the wicket but not the required early breakthrough. The Mosman openers were quick to put pressure back on to the bowling and fielding until a smart run out by David Benson and catch behind by Weaver off James left them 2-38 off 10.

Their strong middle order then took the game away from us scoring 70 off the next 10 punishing anything loose and taking advantage of some ragged fielding. With the gloom closing in after drinks, the main drama was whether we would complete the game before the approaching storm. Andrew Spedding, McCormick and Benson each picked up a wicket but Mosman comfortably closed out the win with over 12 overs to spare.

Outplayed in all departments against a very strong team, it doesn’t get any easier next round against defending champions, Sri Lanka Lions.

The Team was (playing 11): – Michael Weaver (w) 13, Mike Pinter 32*, Peter Nielsen 0, Mick McCormick 18, Peter Rolls 21, Martin Speiser 3, David Benson 13, Andrew Spedding 15, Garry James 9, Greg Brooks 18* and Stuart Ridge  (c) 1*
