Din­gup’s bowlers put Man­jimup to the sword

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Sport -

DIN­GUP scored a close 11-run win over Man­jimup to open the War­ren Black­wood Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion sea­son.

Din­gup won the toss and elected to bat and open­ers Har­ley Sparks and Cal­lan Kezich set about giv­ing the side a head start.

While Kezich got caught on three runs, Sparks put on a tidy 32, in­clud­ing five fours.

The mid­dle or­der failed to find its foot­ing un­til Ri­ley Lid­de­low came out and scored a help­ful 27 not out, in­clud­ing four fours.

Lid­de­low ran out of part­ners and Din­gup fin­ished its in­nings on 115.

Man­jimup’s Dane Raper was the lead­ing bowler, with 3-15 off nine overs and other no­table bowl­ing per­for­mances were from brothers Evan and Aled Phillips Johns, who pro­duced 2-13 and 2-27 re­spec­tively.

Af­ter the break, Man­jimup set about match­ing Din­gup’s run tally but af­ter a slow start, the mid­dle or­der in Cameron Har­ris (35) and Rhett Hol­will (25) stead­ied the ship.

Once Har­ris was bowled out by Joe Fon­tanini, the last three bats­men were out within the next 12 runs, for a fi­nal score of 104 in 29 overs.

Din­gup bowler Rory Sparks was the best Din­gup bowler with 3-7 in seven overs, in­clud­ing four maiden overs and an­other im­pres­sive per­former was Blake Lidel­low with 3-26.
