Mud­dies big bash kicks off

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

THE in­au­gu­ral Mud­dies big bash teed off last Fri­day night un­der the lights of the Port Dou­glas Sport­ing Com­plex. The Sher­a­ton Shock­waves took on the B Team Blasters in a so­cial game of T20 cricket. The Shock­waves cap­tain, Dan Red­fern won the toss and sent the B team in on a green­ish pitch that looked to have some­thing in it for both bats­men and bowlers with 120 look­ing to be a par score.

The Blasters strug­gled to make the most of the con­di­tions with only Rob Borzi (10), Ben Gaske (12), Hay­den D’Ad­dona (13) and Flynn Loomes (14) mak­ing dou­ble fig­ures with the team bun­dled out for 85 off 17 overs.

The bowl­ing of the Shock­waves was steady with Goodo tak­ing the hon­ours with 2 for 2 off his two overs. The bowlers were sup­ported by some ex­cep­tional field­ing, par­tic­u­larly by man of the match Kane Friel- ing who took two sen­sa­tional div­ing catches.

The Shock­waves started ag­gres­sively with all of their bats­men con­tribut­ing. Friel­ing again starred, scor­ing 34 in quick time to se­cure a maiden vic­tory for the Sher­a­ton team with eight overs to spare. The best of the bowlers was Rob Borzi with 1 for 10 off his two overs. The game was a great ad­ver­tise­ment for the game and this Fri­day will again be a great spec­ta­cle with The Port Dou­glas Roy­als tak­ing on the IGA Tav­ern Ban­dits at 6.30pm at the Port Dou­glas Sport­ing Com­plex.
