Bat­ting col­lapses spell loss for Isis

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

THEY might have fielded both teams but it was a week­end bet­ter left for­got­ten for Isis Cricket Club.

Both Green and White were skit­tled in their Bund­aberg Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion Third Di­vi­sion Premier­ship games at Ken­dall Flats last week­end.

Isis Green cap­tain Wayne Dowling said his side got off to a promis­ing start to dis­miss a strong Norths out­fit for 167, but it was all down­hill from there.

“The only Isis bats­man to show any re­sis­tance was Daniel Dowling with a well-com­piled 20,” Dowling said.

The next best for Isis Green were Norths’ bowlers, whose 10 wides helped bump Green’s to­tal up to 53.

It wasn’t all bad news for Green, with a few qual­ity per­for­mances the side will no doubt be keen to build upon in com­ing weeks.

“Jack Rowan and Nic Lind­say both bowled well tak­ing two wick­ets apiece,” Dowling said.

“Charlie Thomp­son came in late and took three wick­ets and Guy Cole showed prom­ise with his first hit out of the sea­son,” he said.

Isis White fared marginally bet­ter in their game against Bur­nett Heads when they over­came a dread­ful start with the bat.

White fell to 4-12 in no time, be­fore cap­tain Roderick Jen­son stead­ied the ship with a solid 43.

Mark Fel­gate, Dan Bain­bridge and Ge­off My­att all chipped in to help boost the score to 90.

The to­tal was much bet­ter than it could have been after the shaky start, but Marty Ryan said Bur­nett Heads did it with ease.

“With their open­ing bats­men in Twenty20 mode and a syn­thetic wicket of­fer­ing noth­ing to the Isis White bowlers, Bur­nett chased down the re­quired runs in nine overs,” Ryan said.

“A num­ber of our reg­u­lar play­ers have been un­avail­able due to work com­mit­ments and a few will be avail­able this week­end for se­lec­tion.

“Some im­prove­ment in the bat­ting will go a long way to win­ning this week­end.”

Debu­tant My­att made it a de­but to re­mem­ber when he picked up the only wicket in a well-beaten Isis at­tack.

Isis Green will tackle Brothers Blue this week­end and Isis White will take on ATW.
