ROUND 7 MATCH REPORT
Our Green Shield boys rounded off the regular season in style with a tight 2 wicket win against Sydney University, securing another undefeated regular season and 2nd place on the Ladder.
After losing the toss and being asked to bowl, early wickets were hard to come by and it was the introduction of spin in the form of Peter Murray (4/33 off 10) and Lachlan Bailey (0/22 off 10) that changed the game. Wickets began to fall regularly with Sydney University eventually posting 164 off their 50 overs with the loss of 9 wickets.
With the bat, early wickets dented any momentum from the bowling innings and it was up to Krish Thakur (21) and skipper Riley Mackay (29) to consolidate in the middle overs. As was the case with Sydney University’s batting innings, wickets once again began to fall regularly however a clinical innings from Jasper Scott (38*) coming in at 8 guided the boys to victory with 9 balls to spare. A thrilling end to the regular season, with attention now shifting to the Finals.
With a top 2 position secured, the boys take on Sydney in the Quarter Finals on Sunday, 23rd of January, keen to make it through to the last dance and lift the Green Shield in back to back seasons.
