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*.
