Af­ter win­ning the toss and elect­ing to bat, Colts set a mod­est to­tal of 9-196, but their bowlers took con- sis­tent wick­ets to dis­miss Leschenault for 131 in the 43rd over.

Colts’ day started hor­ri­bly with Con­nor Ipsen and Jay­den Good­win both be­ing dis­missed for a duck in the open­ing two overs.

James Letch­ford (2-15 from six overs) re­moved Tim Ste­wart for eight runs, while cap­tain Cruize Cial­lella was run out for just nine.

When Mur­ray Good­win was dis­missed for 12, Colts were in trou­ble at 5-66.

A 63-run part­ner­ship be­tween Tim Raglan (59) and Jor­dan Stynes (45) helped to re­cover the in­nings, be­fore some late hit­ting from Joe Barn­ing­ham (20) got them to 196 from their 50 overs.

Leschenault be­gan their run chase well with Jar­rad Quinn (26) and Luke Slater (15) shar­ing a 41run open­ing part­ner­ship be­fore Quinn was dis­missed by Ipsen.

Ipsen then re­moved the dan­ger­ous Kurt D’Agostino for just three runs, while Alis­tair Wood had Slater trapped in front and Matt Buchanan caught be­hind for just four runs.

When stand-in skip­per Letch­ford was run out for 14, the Green Caps were in trou­ble at 5-75.
