Blues start win streak

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT - CRICKET

THE Mud­dies Blues boys were keen to get down to Fuller Park and wrap the game up pretty quickly but Tully had dif­fer­ent ideas and went about their bat­ting in a pa­tient and very de­ter­mined mat­ter.

David John­son got the break through with a clean bowled to have Tully 2-30 af­ter 15 overs.

A part­ner­ship of 37 was made be­fore Sam Hodgson took his first wicket for the club and fin­ished with fig­ures of 1-28 off eight overs.

The next part­ner­ship put the Mud­dies blue to the test as Tully found the gap with well placed shots and of­fer­ing no chances.

Al Can­claw for Tully made 54 but not be­fore be­ing hit by a num­ber of balls, at one stage he had to be brought the chest guard to stop him from swat­ting the ball away from some great bowl­ing by Adam Lu­cas.

David John­son again mak­ing the break­through, clean bowl­ing Can­claw for 54. This left Tully 4-140.

Vikas Chan­dra had his first spell of the sea­son and bowled a con­trolled line and was un­lucky not to get his first wicket of the sea­son through an LBW that was not given. Chan­dra fin­ished with fig­ures 0-28 off 11.

Garry Postans took a great catch at short mid off from the bowl­ing of John­son to leave dan­ger­ous Dave with fig­ures of 4-57 off 20 overs. Tully were now 5-140.

With the game in the bal­ance Skip­per Cody gave him­self a chance with the ball and was smashed for 14 off his over with a huge six and he quickly re­moved him­self from bowl­ing to hand the ball back to Lu­cas.

Tully got the score needed to a run a ball with four over’s left be­fore Lu­cas cleaned up the tail to fin­ish with fig­ures 4-37 off 19.4 overs.

Mud­dies Blue won the game by 11 runs and have won two from two. Man of the match tak­ing three points was Lu­cas with John­son pick­ing up one point.

Mud­dies Blue will face the Mul­grave Tods at Fretwell Park in their next game.
