Full scorecard Match Details | IDCA/Presidents Rep (cricket.com.au)

After the winning the toss we elected to bat with the batting opened by Rob & Harrison. Both boys got off to a solid start, with the run rate accelerating after the first drinks break. Harrison D soon after notching up his first 50 with strong applause from his excited team mates. The boys quickly reached their 100 opening partnership, with Harrison out 51 shortly after. Rob also made his first fifty of the season with an equally excited celebration from his mates. The following batters Ben, Jacob, Toby, Van & Jimmy each had valuable time at the crease (well it was one ball faced for 1 run for Jimmy) with their confidence growing & their efforts contributing to the team total of 5/194 after 40 overs. Rob had a great innings of 85 n/o ‘carrying his bat’ – congratulations Rob.
The boys took to the field with energy & confidence as Will & Max opened the bowling & Mitch behind the stumps. Unfortunately Will succumbed to an injury and left the field for the remainder of the game bringing Charlie into the field. Toby stepped into to partner Max in the bowling & they didn’t look back with both boys taking wickets in their opening spells. Catches were taken by Harrison D , Max & a great effort from Jimmy when he took over from Mitch keeping. Van & Charlie both bowled well during the innings with Max, Ben & Harrison T all finishing the day with 2 wickets each & Toby took the honours with 4/16 after his 8 overs. Great work. The end result was our first win of the season – a convincing 89 run victory.

Harrison Drummond – first 50
