Mud­dies Un­der 16s too good for In­n­is­fail

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

WITH As­tute Fi­nan­cial Mud­dies Un­der 16s Reuben Al­li­son and Daniel David­son play­ing their 50th games for the club the boys were keen to come away with a win. In a low scor­ing af­fair the Mud­dies, 84, was enough to beat In­n­is­fail all out for 45.

With the mem­ory of a Round 1 loss to In­n­is­fail still fresh in their minds the As­tute Fi­nan­cial Mud­dies were keen to make amends.

The boys were sent in to bat on a slow pitch. Open­ing pair Tex McDowall and Daniel David­son got off to a steady start be­fore Tex popped one up and was caught on 3.

Vin­cent Killeen was next in and started steadily be­fore a sui­ci­dal run saw him fall short of his ground, out for 3. With new bats­men Tom Walker (4) at the crease Daniel started to ac­cel­er­ate hit­ting two sixes and a four be­fore hav­ing his leg stump knocked over fin­ish­ing with 46 from 51 balls faced.

The slow pitch played havoc with the mid­dle or­der, with Nathan Deu­ble and Ryan Doble both fall­ing for 2.

sWith a to­tal of 84 runs to de­fend, it seemed the As­tute Fi­nan­cial Mud­dies bowlers would have their work cut out. Open­ing bowlers Ryan Doble and Nick Rayner com­bined pace with great line and length to tie down the In­n­is­fail open­ers, both fall­ing for just 4 runs. Ryan Doble fin­ished with the en­vi­able fig­ures of 1 for 7 from four overs while Nick Rayner, who looks to be the bowler of the com­pe­ti­tion so far, fin­ished with 2 for 1 from his four overs.

Reuben Al­li­son con­tin­ued with his nag­ging line and length to fin­ish with 1 for 10 from four overs, while Liam Clacherty did a great job ty­ing up the bats­men to fin­ish with 0 for 3 from three overs.

Luke Twomey and Con­nor White both fin­ished with 1 for 4 from two and four overs re­spec­tively.

Vin­cent Killeen took 1 for 10 and Nathan Deu­ble had the op­po­si­tion bats­men bam­boo­zled, chang­ing from leg spin to medium pace half way through his spell, fin­ish­ing with 2 for 4 from four overs.

Ar­guably the boys’ best per­for­mance with the ball this sea­son saw In­n­is­fail all out for 45 in the 28th over with the points go­ing to the Mud­dies.

The Dave’s Take­away man of the match award went to cap­tain Daniel David­son for his 46 runs and four catches with the gloves.

This Satur­day sees the As­tute Fi­nan­cial Mud­dies Un­der 16s travel to Crath­ern Park to take on Bar­ron River in their last one-day match of the sea­son.
