Kats vic­to­ri­ous over Wick­ham to stay un­de­feated

Pilbara News - - Sport -

elected to bat but lost four wick­ets early be­cause of some line and length bowl­ing from Jack Napier (2-8).

Mark Polk­inghorne (46) was a rock down one end of the wicket but part­ners were be­ing sent back to the pav­il­ion too regularly to build a sub­stan­tial part­ner­ship. Polk­inghorne tal­lied more than half of Wick­ham’s fi­nal score of 7-76.

Wick­ham had the per­fect start in de­fence of the small to­tal, with Craig Nunn (2-5) tak­ing two wick­ets in the first over. From there the Kats took con­trol of the in­nings.

Opener Pa­trick Richards (28), sec­ond drop Ge­off Spence (17 not out) and the in-form Nino Stur­geon (21no) guided the away team to a com­fort­able win with three overs to spare.
