Wild weather a threat to weekend matches
ISIS Green could snuff out Isis White’s finals hopes with victory if they play this weekend.
The Isis Cricket Club derby is scheduled for Salter Oval 4 this Saturday, but the impending wild weather is set to scuttle any plans of getting on the pitch.
Isis Green players sit second after they secured another win to extend their strong run.
They have now won three in a row, though last weekend’s five-wicket win over Brothers Blue highlighted several poor facets of their game.
Bowling and fielding efforts were “sloppy at times” according to skipper Wayne Dowling, who said Brothers’ 8-140 should have been much less.
A shining light in their bowling effort was Darren Green (3-25), who at one stage was on a hat-trick.
An opening stand of 75 between Simon Cutler (47) and Zac Dann (45) almost put the game to bed, but Isis lost five wickets as they fell short of a bonus point.
Isis White players weren’t as lucky, as they were thumped by 76 runs.
Sundries accounted for most of Isis White’s runs (34), while Liam Denning top-scored with the bat with 24. Denning proved the only resistance to ATW, taking 4-39 from his eight overs as ATW hammered 8-209 from their 40 overs.
DERBY: The Isis Cricket Club sides are set to face off this weekend though wild weather could interfere.
