Wild weather a threat to week­end matches

Isis Town and Country - - Sport - By MATTHEW MCIN­ER­NEY

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.
