Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT - Dar­ren Killeen

THE NQ Homes Mud­dies sec­ond grade side took on the newly formed Cas­sowary Coast team at Ed­mon­ton on Sun­day in the first of two T20s.

Some um­pire con­fu­sion and lack of a score­board saw the game tied with Cas­sowary Coast 8/107 and Mud­dies 6/107.

Mud­dies cap­tain Ben Shrimp­ton won the toss and sent Cas­sowary Coast in to bat.

Ben him­self would make the first break­through of the day re­mov­ing the Cas­sowary Coast opener in the sixth over with the score at 32.

Wick­ets fell at reg­u­lar in­ter­vals with only one of the Cas­sowary Coast bats­men hav­ing any real im­pact to get them to 8/107.

The pick of the Mud­dies bowlers was the club’s lead­ing wicket taker for the year Luke Twomey with 3/8 from two overs. Ben Shrimp­ton 2/12(2) and Keel Sorensen 2/16(4) were the other wicket tak­ers.

Mud­dies open­ers Ben Shrimp­ton 21 (26) and Kaiden Sorensen 22 (21) started strongly with the first wicket not fall­ing un­til the ninth over.

First drop bats­men Nick Rayner was the pick of the Mud­dies bats­men with 34 (32) in­clud­ing four bound­ary’s.

A run out from the last ball of the game saw the scores tied at 107 with Ryan Stan­away 15 (28) the not out bats­men.
