Gayn­dah bats­men were too good

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

GAYN­DAH’S im­pres­sive bat­ting set Mun­dub­bera Stingers a to­tal that proved unattain­able in their match at Martin Love Oval in Mun­dub­bera last week­end.

Af­ter win­ning the toss and elect­ing to bat, Gayn­dah’s bats­men pro­duced 423 runs in their 40 overs with the loss of seven wick­ets.

Lance Baker top-scored with 142 and Dave Shep­perd also im­pressed spec­ta­tors with his score of 101.

Best bowlers for Stingers were Cameron Brauer with fig­ures of three for 55 off eight overs and Ross Schulte, who took two for 77, also off eight overs.

Be­ing one player short was a dis­ad­van­tage for Stingers, who were all out for 353.

Brad Sut­cliffe showed his pre­vi­ous success with the bat was no fluke when he added 143 runs for his team.

Cal­lum Shute also bat­ted well for his score of 48.

Gayn­dah bowlers shared the wicket, and both teams are look­ing for­ward to their next en­counter.
