LMS T20 (8-a-SIDE) EASTERN SYDNEY SUNDAY DIVISION 4  ROUND 9 v ‘MARVELLOUS MARKHORS’ AT MP8 ROBERTSON ROAD, MOORE PARK ON SUNDAY 17 JULY 2022: REPORT BY JIM HADLEY

A late injury left us with 7 men for the fixture and the general view was to bowl first then design a run chase. Toby Forbes 4-0-31 and David Craig 4-0-38 did a great job with the new ball, supported by Joel Uddstrom 3-1-25, Jonathan Seifman 3-1-30 and James Bonkowski hitting a good line with  2-0-13. Williams took the keeping gloves off to provide cheap late overs 2-0-16 and the Marvellous Markhors finished with 2-179 after their 20 overs.

Bonkowski 50* and Forbes 32 got us off to a perfect start against their best bowlers maintaining the required run rate and on their departure we had good reason to be confident that we had their total under control. Scott Williams 52* hit some searing 6s over midwicket with Uddstrom providing an exciting 40* off 19 balls. Seifman sealed the win with 2 boundaries off 3 balls and we got home with an over to spare.   .

LMS T20 (8-a-SIDE) EASTERN SYDNEY SUNDAY DIVISION 4  ROUND 3 v ‘TWELTH MAN’ AT UPPER KIPAX SASH RANGASWAMY, MOORE PARK ON SUNDAY 24 JULY 2022: REPORT BY DAVID CRAIG

For reasons known only to the mystical organisers of LMS, we rocked up to Moore Park at 8.30am on a Sunday to play some cricket. Unfortunately, half of our opposition seemed to have missed the memo, with only four of their players showing up. Ever the gentleman and keen to make a game of it, our skipper Jim Hadley offered the following concessions: a) allowed them to bat first, b) allowed their players to bat twice each if needed, c) reversed our batting and bowling orders, d) loaned them two substitute fielders, and e) allowed them to bowl more than 4 overs each. Never let it be said that Sunday Div 4 LMS is not some serious cricket!

By agreement, the ‘Twelth Man’ team took to the crease first, and faced some serious heat (yeah, nah) from Peter Rolls and James “Bonkers” Bonkowski. They were in early trouble on run-rate before both openers coughed up skyers against Rollsy, catches safely taken by Bonkers and Rollsy himself. While they never really got going, a few big hits late in the innings lifted them to a respectable but not particularly challenging 3-128 at the break.

With Jim Hadley and Matt Leong generously covering some of the gaps in the field for them, our openers Peter Rolls and Beris Zanetich steadily built a partnership that took us halfway there before their “gun” player bowled Rollsy for 31. Dave Craig joined Beris and moved the score along in typical fashion before coming to grief in an over horribilis against their keeper (literally) chucking down gentle offies – five wild swipes, zero bat on ball, stumping and LBW chances, ending with the castle disturbed and a rare wicket maiden in LMS. Ignominy indeed. The good news was this brought Bonkoski to the crease who, with some trademark blows and busy running, brought up the victory with a huge six with 3 balls to spare. A great effort considering he had a broken hand from a nasty bouncer early in his innings.

Mission accomplished – made a game of it and took the points. Well done, skipper.

The Team was (playing 7): – Peter Rolls 31, Beris Zanetich 48*, David Craig 14, James Bonkowski 28*, Matthew Leong dnb, Joel Uddstrom dnb and Jim Hadley (c) dnb

The Result was:-

LMS T20 (8-a-SIDE) EASTERN SYDNEY SUNDAY DIVISION 4  ROUND 7  v ‘PREMATURE WICKET TAKERS’ AT MP8, ROBERTSON ROAD , MOORE PARK ON SUNDAY 31 JULY 2022: REPORT BY DAVID CRAIG

For the second week in a row organisers saw fit to schedule us at 8.30am and we batted first on an oval soaked in dew. Jamie Murtha and Matt Leong opened up, and after a promising boundary early on, Jamie coughed up a catch and Joel Uddstrom came in. Joel was in rare form, adding the lofted cover drive to his favourite cow-corner power, and soon retired with 55* off 27 balls, 5 x 6s and 3 x 4s. Matty Leong at the other end played a steady hand, getting some useful centre wicket practice as he accumulated 45 off 40. Joel’s retirement did not end the fireworks, with his place taken by Scott Williams in a typically aggressive mood. He added another 4 x 6s and a boundary before losing his castle for 34 off just 13 deliveries. Matty Leong was unfortunately caught just before reaching retirement, and Matt Edge and Dave Craig finished off the innings at 3-167with a busy partnership.

The Premature Wicket Takers were busy themselves at the top of the order, until Scott Williams removed their big hitting opener, miscuing one to David Craig at midwicket. His replacement at the crease continued the onslaught while the other opener pushed the singles, and they began to creep up on the target. Wickets to Matt Leong and David Craig, and the retirement of their no. 3 (51* off 27) slowed them down a little, and with 2 overs remaining they needed 23. Time for some crafty leg spin, and yours truly kept the ball outside off to keep them to 6 runs off the 19th over, and leaving 17 to get off the final 5 ball over,, Scott Williams returned to ice the cake. The ‘Premmies’ had other ideas, smacking 4-4-2 off the first 3 balls: 7 to win off 2! Sick of relying on others, Scotty induced a return catch, completed the double play run out, and bowled a dot-ball to finish things off. Cricketers’ Club took the points and remain undefeated for the season after an enjoyable and close game.

The Team was: – James Murtha 6, Matt Leong 45, Joel Uddstrom 55*, Scott Williams 34, Mathew Edge 6, David Craig 18*, Jim Hadley (c) dnb, Beris Zanetich (w) dnb

The Result was:-

LMS T20 (8-a-SIDE) EASTERN SYDNEY SUNDAY DIVISION 4  ROUND 6   v ‘RANDWICK GOLD VIII’ AT MP, ROBERTSON ROAD , MOORE PARK ON SUNDAY 14 AUGUST 2022

The Result was:-

Randwick Gold VIII

Defeated

CCNSW

By forfeit.

Having won every league round to date and coming first in the League regardless of the result in this game, CCNSW forfeited having apparently encountered difficulties in raising a side partly perhaps because of the City to Surf ‘fun run’, difficulties not apparently suffered by our opposition.

So at the end of the League season prior to the Finals the League Table is as below and CCNSW proceed to play the Premature Wicket Takers in the semi-final next Sunday

LMS T20 (8-a-SIDE) EASTERN SYDNEY SUNDAY DIVISION 4  SEMI FINAL   v ‘PREMATURE WICKET TAKERS’ AT MP6 ROBERTSON ROAD , MOORE PARK ON SUNDAY 21 AUGUST 2022: REPORT BY JIM HADLEY

CCNSW lost the toss and was sent in. Matt Leong (6) and Toby Forbes (25) opened and showed they were not going to let any opportunities go, scoring 30 off the first 3 overs. Both departed soon after bringing Charlie Sharpe and Joel Uddstrom to the crease. Uddstrom having not lost his wicket yet this competition , managed to get yorked for 5 bringing Jonathan Seifman and Sharpe together for the best partnership of the season. The umpires LMS scoring app had played up and he was unable to know when our players had reached their 50 retirement score. Seifman (72*) hit some enormous 6s to all parts backed up by the controlled aggression of Sharpe (66*) and CCNSW finished with 3-175 after 20 overs.

Matt Leong and Jim Hadley opened the bowling and after 5 overs the opposition were near the run rate required but importantly for us  had lost their two ‘ring in’ batters who appeared for the first time this winter season in the  competition. Forbes, Seifman and Sharpe bowled tidy spells backed up by our energetic keeper Beris Zanetich to keep the game in check and the Premature Wicket Takers fell 23 short 3-152 off 20 overs.                       

CCNSW into the final next Sunday v the Marvellous Markhors when Jamie Murtha will captain, helped “if needed” by David Craig. 

(Editor’s note:  Unfortunately this was  Jim Hadley LMS swan song.. He has  selected and led the team to the final with masterly captaincy  but won’t be playing in the final as he and his partner Karin need to use the accommodation credits  purchased for the cancelled CCNSW Tasmania tour of last year. Thus he will be leaving “old blighty Sydney” for the sundrenched UK for 2 months

He is also retiring from LMS summer cricket. Any takers  to run our summer LMS side on Wednesday nights?)

The Team was (playing 7): – Toby Forbes 25, Matt Leong 6, Charles Sharpe 66*, Joel Uddstrom 5, Jonathan Seifman 72*, Jim Hadley (c) dnb and Beris Zanetich (w) dnb

12 and 19 JUNE v TOEY GAMBLERS AND RANDWICK GOLD VIII

LMS T20 (8-a-SIDE) EASTERN SYDNEY SUNDAY DIVISION 4  ROUND 10 v ‘TOEY GAMBLERS’ AT MP4 ROBERTSON ROAD, MOORE PARK ON SUNDAY 12 JUNE 2022: REPORT BY JIM HADLEY

CCNSW lost the toss and bowled. Unfortunately at the start we had three of our players still finishing  an earlier game on a ground nearby. Richard Clark and David Craig did a good job opening the bowling with only four fielders for the first three overs. When our keeper and frontline bowlers arrived we were able to put the brakes on their run rate, Toby Forbes 2-28 and Charles Sharpe 1-18 bowling great spells. A terrific return to the bowling crease by Peter Rolls with 0-21 off 3 overs, getting some deceptive bounce and shape. Toey Gamblers ended up with 4-167 after their 20 overs.

Rolls and Clark started our innings in a hurry with Clark hitting 2 sixes in the opening overs till unluckily nicking a widish ball to the keeper. Rolls 28 kept the runs flowing after James Bonkowski holed out and put on a great partnership with Edge 53* (including 3×6 in a row) putting us in with a chance. Will Jacobs then pasted 35* from 15 balls leaving himself and Forbes to get 13 off the last over. CCNSW got the 1 run needed off the last ball to win.

The Team was: – Peter Rolls 29, Richard Clark 18, James Bonkowski 8, Matthew Edge 53*, Charles Sharpe 16, William Jacobs  (w) 35*, Toby Forbes 6*, Jim Hadley (c) dnb, David Craig dnb,

Back Row: Joel Uddstrom, Toby Forbes, Matt Leong, Beris Zanetich (w), James Bonkowski.
Front Row:  Peter Rolls, Jim Hadley (c), David Craig.

CCNSW won the toss and batted. Peter Rolls and James Bonkowski got us off to a flier. Bonkowski was peerless with 54* (off 21 balls) and with Rolls 50* (off 25 balls), had us in the driver’s seat early.  Beris Zanetich 27 and Matt Leong also 27 kept the runs flowing despite some pretty useful late overs from Randwick to limit our score to 4-174 from our 20 overs.

Toby Forbes and David Craig took the new ball hitting the spot immediately, Forbes took 2-24 off 3.3 overs; Craig took 3-15 off 3 overs including the very rare feat in LMS of bowling a maiden over. They absolutely dismantled any hopes Randwick had.  Joel Uddstrom, Bonkowski and Rolls also bowled tidy spells backed up by catches from Leong (2), Zanetich (2) and Forbes (1). Randwick were all out for 108 in the 15th over.

LMS T20 (8-a-SIDE) EASTERN SYDNEY SUNDAY DIVISION 4  ROUND 5  v ‘TOEY GAMBLERS’ AT MP5 ROBERTSON ROAD, MOORE PARK ON SUNDAY 8 MAY 2022:REPORT BY RICHARD CLARK

On Mother’s Day, eight brave souls, who had build-up enough brownie points with their mothers and partners, took the field at MP5 in the first “rain unaffected” game of the winter LMS Season. The weather was brisk but glorious.

CCNSW lost the toss but was happily sent in to bat. A steady start was anchored by experienced debutant Shahzeem Ajani (50* from 39 balls) which set up the innings. Joel Uddstrom (52* off 31) started slowly but, in the last five overs he and James Bonkowski (29* off 18), teed off to set a competitive total of 4-154 on a decent sized ground with a characteristically long outfield.

Toby Forbes (1-13 off 4) took the new ball and bowled fast and tight. The hitting arc (Cow Corner to Deep Mid-off) was covered by strong outfielders and the grass and fielders inside the circle on the off side dried up the singles.  Tight bowling was a feature of the second innings. There are not many LMS matches where six bowlers are used and the economy rate of all bowlers is below 8 (3 of which today  were below 5.5).

CCNSW eased their way to a Bonus Point win and look forward to the return of our fearless leader in the next match.

The Team was: Shahzeem Ajani 50*, Charles Sharpe 10, Beris Zanetich 4, Joel Uddstrom 52*, James Bonkowski (w) 29*, Jonathan Seifman 1, Toby Forbes 1, Richard Clark (c) 2*.

The Result was:-

C.C.N.S.W. MATCH  REPORT No 21: NSW POLICE  FRIDAY 22 APRIL  2022

SOCIAL  v  NSW POLICE  XI    AT BRADMAN OVAL,  BOWRAL   ON FRIDAY 22 APRIL 2022 : REPORT BY SOREN HUGHES

The CCNSW team above left was:

Back row: PeterBuruma, Paul Witherly, Peter Rolls, Harry Bridge, Stuart Ridge, David Craig, Martin Speiser

Front row: Richard Clark (w), Andrew Dadswell, Michael Carman, Ben Stanic, Soren Hughes (c)

The Umpires in blue in the middle were: Brian Breakspear and Tom Cooper.

The NSW Police team above right was:

Back Row:   G. JAMES, P. BURNS, W. BARGE, M. BURSA, M. EDWARDS, R. ALLINGTON, P. MORGAN, R. NINOVIC

Front row: H. MURPHY B. SAGDIYEV, R. MCMAHON, D.LEGGE-NICHOLLS 

Absent:  D. STEPHENSON and A MCBRIDE

Rumours were apt pre game of a formidable opponent, a strong team who would be using the game as a selection trial for higher duties. We hadn’t been involved in a State selection trial since our game at Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka where the trial wad been a test of all abilities in every facet. This game was on home turf (and thankfully 20 degrees cooler and without the intense humidity), played at the most prestigious Bradman Oval, Bowral; a cricket ground of international standard and designed for fair play between teams.

\We had not played the NSW Police previously; however the fixture was played in such good spirits that rumours are now abound of an annual fixture, perhaps to be called the ‘Brooks James Cup’ in honour of honourable men. May that be so; however we may well need to commit all our resources to this game before we conquer ex and current first graders and cricketers with current professional contracts to play in the BBL. The script may have been written before the game began, although it would be written in four quarters and two innings (4 quarters of 25 overs and a cumulative total).

Bradman Oval was looking a picture, though slightly damp after months of rain. Despite good cloud cover, it was a pitch to bat first on before the pitch crumbled and while the outfield was still wet. We lost the toss. Stuart Ridge and Ben Stanic gave us a strong start with two early wickets, a classic caught behind by Richard Clark and an athletic and agile catch from Paul Witherly who I hope to see occasionally next year around the Masters (or C&S) circuit if his duties captaining St George 5ths let him do so.

The Police pairing were quick to dispatch almost anything, reliably scoring in all areas off almost every ball. The change to spin with Martin Speiser, Andrew Dadswell (“Tex”) and David Craig  however slowed them down somewhat, ‘Tex’ rewarded with a wicket. Holding them to 168 from their first 25 was a seemingly good result as we just couldn’t break the 100 run partnership between Murphy and McBride until both men retired on 50 each. Perhaps we might stand on the rope instead of 10m inside it next time as there were a couple of chances that bounced just inside the rope that might have changed things.

Our first batting quarter was pleasing. Peter Rolls and Richard Clark were obviously up against a quality fast bowling attack and were given almost nothing loose to enjoy. Watching them survive  was thrilling. Admittedly we needed almost 7 an over to keep pace but neither threw their wicket away and kept at it. I’ve not seen ‘Rich’ bat so slowly ever. When Rolls fell, Harry Bridge lasted only one ball with one that shaped away but yorked him on off stump for a golden. Peter Buruma held them out for 3 runs before Edwards removed both in his 4th over. Michael Carman and Andrew Dadswell  then formed a nice partnership of resistance and resilience before Michael got a good one from Morgan just as they began to accelerate towards the break. Paul Witherly accelerated from ball one, he and ‘Tex’ building a fine 50 run partnership into the halfway mark at 5 for 89, though 80 short of the target. 

The Police batted sensationally in their final quarter, ticking off the wagon wheel and spraying the ball anywhere and everywhere. To quote David Craig, “They smashed it everywhere, then bowled us out cheaply but it was a nice venue The End.” but our readership deserve more. They smashed it everywhere and we ran after it and retrieved it and kept coming back for more of the same. Stuart Ridge bowled magnificently, as always, picking up another couple of wickets from edges. Unfortunately the sun was setting; we were tiring and Garry James kindly declared with 6 overs to go. It could have been worse, but almost 200 from 20 overs is fair game these days, especially considered the tour opportunity and need to justify selection for higher duties at stake for the Police batters.

So needing 11 an over from 25 overs with 5 wickets in hand in the setting sun on a crumbling pitch (or 266 from 20 in the circumstances) against the foregoing attack was not an unremarkable task.  Witherly and Dadswell had grand plans and set about it with vigour. Both however were undone by Stevens in successive overs despite solid resistance. Martin Speiser put up some resistance too. However the running of successive twos appeared to get the better of him, run out by a direct hit from the boundary. In came David Craig who put the reverse sweep aside for a few balls but was caught out chasing the target LBW. Ben Stanic had a crack  too but came up short. With Soren Hughes swinging madly at the odd loose one, Garry James decided  on the fall of the tenth wicket that Harry Bridge should get another crack and so Soren and Harry formed a short partnership with the sun setting on a lovely day out at Bradman Oval.

CCNSW  came up well short against a very strong, notably armed and well mannered NSW Police side in hitting 189 from 43 overs chasing 355 from 44 overs. We will need to rally to beat them next year as they certainly bring a 1st class outfit with the 1st grade premier cricket leading run scorer and a Sydney Thunder recruit  waiting on the sidelines for their opportunity for selection. They might even might make an appearance next year and give us bragging rights if we can conquer the Goliath.

The Team was (playing 12): Peter Rolls 5, Richard Clark 9, Harry Bridge 0 (and 13*) #, Peter Buruma 3, Michael Carman 17, Andrew Dadswell 31, Paul Witherley 29, Martin Speiser 6, Soren Hughes (c) 42, David Craig 1, Ben Stanic 3, Stuart Ridge (dnb) and S. Ridge dnb

LATE REPORT

VINTAGE  OVER 60s ROUND 7  v SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS    AT CHATER OVAL, MITTAGONG ,   ON SUNDAY 13 FEBRUARY 2022 : REPORT BY PETER ROLLS 

La Nina once again threatened the round with rain leading up to the weekend. The groundsman did an amazing job to get us on.

Sunny skies on a damp pitch. Peter Rolls won the toss and decided to bowl. The outfield was wet in places so hard for balls to reach the boundary. Ambient temperature 22°C with little humidity in the Highlands. We welcomed Jim Hadley for his first game in Vintage Cricket.

The Highlands openers were patient and played well on a slow variable pitch and Joe Scarcella and Paul Georgiadis bowled without luck. It took Mick McCormick in the 17th over before we got a wicket. 1-50 off 17 overs. John Finucane and David Wright shared the keeping with 20 overs a piece and did a great job on a tricky pitch.

Enter Pete Jensen and the strategy was to have Stuart Ridge have a crack at him as soon as he came in and the planned worked! Stuart in his second over bowling him for 8 with a beautiful in-swinger. The first time Pete has been out in 3 seasons of Vintage cricket! 2-58 off 19 overs. Stuart followed up a few overs later to also bowl Rod Van Beek who was settled in. 3-89 off 28 overs.

Jim Hadley bowling his leggies claimed his first wicket in Vintage bowling the batsman after tying him down. 4-104 off 31. Jim snared his second wicket from a well judged catch by Paul Georgiadis. Frank Baliotis got a freakish run out throwing the ball to the bowlers end while still on the ground.

Greg Brooks bowling well then chimed in with 3 quick wickets. The Southern Highlands’ retired opener came back in and did some damage in the last couple of overs. 9-151 off 40 overs.

Peter Rolls  and Jim Hadley  opened and Jim dispatched two full tosses to the boundary in quick succession. But in the 4th over Jim tried to smash a loopy off spinner with the ball popping and edging to the keeper. 1-12 off 4 overs.

Peter Rolls edged one to keeper and John Finucane hit a powerful shot but a great running catch at deep mid-on by Pete Jensen removed him. 3-22 off 10 overs. Jim Robson was looking good until he clipped one straight to square leg. 4-74 off 17 overs. Greg Brooks showed a master class of power hitting with 3 sixes and a four to soon retire at 30*.  Tight bowling by The Highlanders made scoring slow. Mick McCormick was patient then hit out with 3 fours. We lost Frank Baliotis, Stuart Ridge, Joe, Scarcella,Paul Georgiadis  and David  Wrightin quick succession but this helped bring back big hitting Greg. 9-103 off 29 overs. Greg hit another four and looking good for the final chase but then disaster with Mick hitting over the top of a slow loopy Pete Jensen to be bowled to have us all out for 113 with still 8.4 overs remaining and only 39 runs to get.

A disappointing end and if only we had a couple more batsman ‘in the bank’. Shows the value of getting a couple in the bank early in the innings. Greg left to ponder “what if”.  It took a few minutes after the game for the steam to subside from his ears. Then Greg kissed and made up with Mick. That’s cricket!

Still an enjoyable drink after the game in beautiful country surroundings in The Highlands.

The Team was: –  Jim Hadley 10, Peter Rolls (c) 4 , John Finucane 6, Jim Robson 21, Greg Brooks 36*, Mick McCormick 22, Frank Baliotis 5, Stuart  Ridge 1, Joe Scarcella 1, Paul Georgiadis 1, David Wright (w) 1

CLASSICS  OVER 50s ROUND 9  v  BURWOOD    AT CAMPERDOWN OVAL, CAMPERDOWN   ON SUNDAY 20 MARCH 2022 : REPORT BY SCOTT WELLS 

CCNSW were originally down to play the Sri Lankan Lions after missing this opportunity for the past two seasons due to wet weather. The week prior however, the Classics Committee changed the draw to a finals game of 1 vs 2 – being Roseville and Lions respectively.

As Roseville were down to play Burwood (whom we had already played earlier in the year) we were matched against them again – at Camperdown.

Whilst 1 and 2 played it out for a table topping match, 2, 3 and 4 were all very tight on the table leaving the final round as moving day. CCNSW were just ahead of the team who comprehensively beat us the round prior – Georges River. Roseville were top of the table by some 30 points ahead of the training group which left a remote opportunity (leaving the maths out of the explanation) for CCNSW to top the competition needing Lions to roll Roseville for not many and score very slowly losing no wickets.

But first we had to comprehensively beat Burwood by scoring 200+ and get all 10 wickets which was possible given we had beaten them well in the earlier round.

With regulars Ian Allmey, David Benson, David Craig, Richie De Silva, and Garry James not available for this game it was a slightly different looking side to previous games. Big Andrew Bachelard making his comeback from a near season ending leg injury, Jed Wesley-Smith offering to keep and umpire a full 40 and a young Brett James making his Classics debut for the club making up the 12. A side with deep batting and plenty of bowling options which has been our strength all year.

It was an unusually dry week leading up to the game so we were hoping for a nice hard wicket and dry, mown outfield. Unfortunately La Nina had different plans and dumped another load of wet stuff on the ground Friday. The pitch had been well prepared and the covers down in time thanks to the C&S Saturday team. However, upon inspection Saturday, somehow water under the covers had prevented any chance of play Saturday – as did the constant rain that morning. A call to arms was made Saturday afternoon to see if the pitch could be salvaged with Mike Pinter removing water off the covers and remove them for an inspection. The outlook was dire.

With no rain expected for the rest of the afternoon along with a stiff sea breeze expected and sun first thing Sunday morning, we decided to leave the covers off (Mike P with the assistance of some local soccer lads packed them away) with this being our only real option to get a dry pitch within 24hrs.

An early inspection on Sunday morning lead to hope we would be playing and with efforts to sop up some wet areas, the slight breeze and eventual sunshine left us with a playable pitch come 1pm. Special mention to the great clubman Mike Weaver who caught the 6:05am from Gosford to get the ground to help with the mopping up.

Game time – Skipper Scott  Wells won the toss and showed no hesitation to bat knowing we needed to post a big total to stay in touch on the table. A few scoffs from Burwood were heard seemingly surprised at the decision expecting a wet deck but that was the chance we had to take.

CCNSW started steadily but busily with the two Mikes (Pinter and Weaver) opening up with the strike being turned over well until Weaves was adjudicated lbw. Sliding down leg – perhaps – a shiver went through the shed thinking we had a trigger finger at the helm. Enter Paul Nash who too started cautiously with the pitch playing a bit slow due to the dampness and the opening bowlers swinging the ball on tight lines. Pinter was the next to go chasing a wide one caught behind. Nash and Wells batted cautiously until drinks with both the Burwood  openers and first and second changes bowling very tight lines and swinging the ball. beating the bat but still offering the odd loose one to score off. 2 for 53 at drinks with a platform to launch in the second 20.

Upon return Nash wasted no time in getting the runs to bring up his 30* retired. However this change bought the early dismissal of Ed Cross which saw Brett James making his Classics debut. The left handed batter seemed to throw the Burwood attack who  lost their line and length which Brett took full advantage of after a watchful start 2 (11) launching a few into the hill to bring up a very good 30* (23). Greg Brooks entered the fray making his intentions clear in picking up the run rate (and running a 3) whilst at the other end Wells nudged his way to a very tradesman-like 31*. Leaving us at 3 for 119 after 30 overs. Brooksie departing after a hard hitting 24 – 147 with 6 overs remaining

With 3 in the “bank” 200 looked possible after a steady start with 7 or 8 an over required. Mick Tarrant, Martin Speiser, Andrew Bachelard and Stuart Ridge continued to push the score getting us to 171 with 2 overs left and retirees Nash and James seeing them well. 23 runs off the last two overs saw us get to 8-194 with Nash 46* and Brett James 49*. A very solid total on a tricky deck.

Keen to take the wickets required and with plenty of bowling options, CCNSW opened up with Tarrant and Ridge. Both bowled tight lines on the pitch which saw the score plod along to 2 for not many with Tarrant getting one to jump for a snick behind and Ridge the other not before toying with their resilient number 3 twice hitting him in the money makers much to the amusement of the other 12 players on the field and umpires. A double change was made with Brett James bowling well pitching the ball up seeing what swing could be extracted from a drying pitch and Brooks from the other end bowling his usual reliable tight lines. Brett finished up with 2 wickets to cap off a great day along with a direct hit run-out earlier. But still Burwood seemed intent and hanging around with only 4 or 5 wickets down at drink but for a miserly 34 runs.

Straight after drinks, a double change was again made with Wells (for the first time in 3 seasons) sending down a few leggies to try to break the shackles and Andy Bachelard bowling from the café end. It was Andy B who struck twice to get the break throughs needed and we were well on our way to a victory. Not wanting to risk another injury, another double change was made with Ed Cross from one end and Martin Speiser from  the other to try to shake their stubborn batsmen out of their defensive mode and  not letting them get comfortable. Enough was enough and with 6 or 7 overs remaining with the last pair offering nothing, the secret weapon was released with the skipper yelling – “warm up Weaves”. Truth be known, we were only stalling until Brooks came back with the beers and tonic water but don’t tell Weaver that.

Once Brooks was spotted with a carton on his shoulder, Tarrant and Ridge were bought back into the attack to mop up and swiftly did so leaving Burwood all out on 93 runs (Editor’s note: Burwood only had 9 players and we provided one sub in the field) and a comprehensive, deserved and expected victory to CCNSW.

A flurry of text messages post game with other teams and the dusting off and clanking of abacuses (abaci?) saw the results and bonus points filter in. Sri Lanka Lions had beaten Roseville by first sending them in and rolling them for 70 odd and then achieving the run chase within 50% of the overs securing 5 bonus points.

The League table saw Roseville drop to 4th by 1.3 points (effective 2 wickets or 26 runs) and Lions retrain take second place. CCNSW had done enough to hang onto 3rd place

The competition winner which no one had seen coming was Georges River who absolutely spanked Old Ignatians by scoring a mammoth 270 runs earning 43.5 points outing Lions by 1.1 points (22 runs or 2 wickets) and CCNSW by 2.3 points (46 runs or 3 wickets). Ironically, the ultimate winner didn’t play  in the 1 vs 2 game.

Anyhow, a great, fun year which everybody contributed to and we toughed out a couple of close games whilst winning the games we should have won but for one blemish against Georges River who were the ultimate competition winners.

The Team was (playing 12): – Mike Weaver 2, Mike Pinter 9, Paul Nash 46*, Scott Wells (c) 31*, Ed Cross 0, Brett James 49*, Greg Brooks 24, Mike Tarrant 3, Martin Speiser 6, Andrew Bachelard 1, Stuart Ridge 9, Jed Wesley-Smith (w) dnb

MASTERS  OVER 40s ROUND 9  v GEORGES RIVER     AT BLAND OVAL, RIVERWOOD  ON SUNDAY 13 MARCH 2022 : REPORT BY MIKE WEAVER 

Back row:- Luke Holman;  Ian Allmey (c); Ed Cross; Lee Witherden ; Tim Croft;  Stuart Ridge
Front row: – Andrew Dadswell ;  Mike Weaver, Tom Robertson, Soren Hughes, Scott Wells (w)
Absent: Paul Nash

CCNSW Masters were hopeful of a good result to end their season in their final match at Bland Oval, hosted by Georges River. 

Blues captain Ian Allmey won the toss in conditions which made scoring, via more conventional means at least, difficult. The pitch was quite normal for a Bland Oval track and the outfield, as could be reasonably expected, was thickly grassed and boggy in some areas. Good to stomp around on though! Sincere thanks to the Georges River club for the efforts they made to get the ground prepared up to a playable standard, considering the previous weeks’ record deluge of rain. 

Stuart Ridge and Tim Croft opened the bowling with Tim steaming in from the car park end. ‘Crofty’ had been chaffing at the bit for a run, his recent CCNSW net practice efforts testimony to that. And he didn’t disappoint. Operating at very good pace he soon had Georges River opener Hillman caught at mid off for 2 and number 3 Doran ‘nicked off’ to wicketkeeper Scott Wells, for a duck, to have Georges River 2 for 2 after his first over and just the second of the innings.

‘Ridgy’ was keeping things tight at the other end as the opposition crawled along to consolidate. A bowling change for the tenth over saw Paul Nash collect the wicket of Smith, snapped up in the gully by Mike Weaver. ‘Weaves’ managed to hang on to the chance at his second attempt after the ball flew to his outstretched right hand. Unfortunately Paul strained his calf and could not continue his one over spell. 

With CCNSW well on top, a relatively easier chance given by Georges River batter Gerard was put down off Paul’s replacement Lee Witherden, also in the bowler’s initial over. Never the less, both sides went to drinks with Georges River battling at 3- 29. Andrew Dadswell had replaced Stuart Ridge from the far end and had bowled extremely well. He was very unlucky not to  obtain a wicket on the day, keeping the Georges River batters guessing with his very accurate, very subtle and very tricky changes of pace and flight. 

In the ‘second stanza’ things changed around a lot as the ball got older and a lot softer. Georges River opener and Over 50s Australian representative, Todd  O’Keefe, accelerated his very watchful and responsible start and began to hit the Blues bowlers around. After he retired on 42* , CCNSW couldn’t take advantage of a run out chance and although eventually having Gerard caught in the deep by Ed Cross, off Soren Hughes, were unable to take any other wickets. Georges River batter, Mag, attacked the bowling ruthlessly to also retire and see his team to a very respectable 4-154 at the close. 

The CCNSW bowling fell away markedly in comparison to the first 20 overs and in the entire process another three catches went down, one off GR batter Whittall’s first ball faced, to rub salt into the wounds. A half hour rain delay after 37 overs ended up reducing the match to a 39 over per side affair. The rain had softened the pitch up a little as well, which was not to Cricketers’ Club’s advantage. 

This could not be held as an excuse though. The Georges River bowlers attacked the stumps and off side lines relentlessly with maybe only one or two short of a length deliveries that could have been hit, over the whole innings. It was an impatient batting display by CCNSW overall. Some batters seemed  not prepared to knuckle down enough to avert a batting collapse, after two very good deliveries knocked over key men Allmey and Nash for ducks. Tom Robertson was also adjudged lbw for 4 runs in what was possibly an unlucky decision for him. ‘Nashy’ received a ‘rip snorter’ of a ball, that swung very late from middle to off stump, to knock out his off stump high up. 

Scott Wells and Mike Weaver both seemed in good touch yet both were unable to get full value for shots played right along the ground, aside from Scott’s nice hook to the short fine leg fence. Scotty, in an abnormal dismissal for him, holed out a drive to mid off.

And in pursuit of his sixth single run, Weaves tried in vain to nurdle a ball to the onside, which straightened from leg to off and lobbed off the back of his bat, for a sharp catch at second slip. It was an impatient shot in the conditions and situation. 

Ed Cross and Soren Hughes both had their castles knocked down with the score on just 25. Lee Witherden then hit his first ball received straight to mid off to be caught for a golden duck, with again no addition. It was definitely difficult to score at this point, for all the wrong reasons. It seemed Lee had been rushing to get his pads on, to get out to the middle in time, as he obviously, and perhaps justifiably, wasn’t settled at all by the situation. At this stage the CCNSW boys might have been thinking about finishing the game off early, to get to the local Riverwood Tavern, to watch the NRL. 

Fortunately for the Club, Stu Ridge isn’t that interested in NRL and at 8-25, Tim Croft was simply not going to give his wicket away. Both men demonstrated a proud, stubborn application and resolve that had been missing from most of their team mates.  

Stu chewed up 48 balls for 8 runs, finally looking to gain some kind of ascendancy, before getting himself caught, dancing down to the wicket to try to gain the said ascendancy. Last man Luke Holman succumbed to the second best ball received during the innings, unluckily bowled, to record the fourth Blues duck on the score sheet.

So Tim was left defiantly stranded, unbeaten on 21*, his highlight a booming six over the far mid on boundary of the back foot, to complete a fine match performance for himself. The final team score of 57 runs just managed to beat the record lowest club score in Masters and Classics. So well done boys…

In what can only be described as a difficult Masters season for so many reasons, CCNSW were again well led by their skipper Ian Allmey on the day and the team accepted the defeat in typical good grace. 

As…there’s always next season !!!
