CRICKET

THE first game of the 2013/14 Cricket sea­son got un­der­way over the weekend at the Proser­pine Sport­ing Com­plex with a 20/20 scratch match played be­tween Val­leys and War­riors.

Bat­ting first, Val­leys got off to a good start thanks to new­comer Scott Hunter (46) and Greg Dore (17) putting on 49 runs for the first wicket.

This laid the plat­form for an ex­cel­lent in­nings by David Hob­son (49), nar­rowly miss­ing out on his half cen­tury thanks to some great bowl­ing from Theo Brown (3/24 from 4 overs).

Some late hit­ting from Win­ston Poid (22) helped Val­leys to the to­tal of 5/147 from their 20 overs.

War­riors' bats­men strug­gled in their re­ply, with spin bowler Greg Dore (2/7 from 2 overs) dis­miss­ing Luke Glin­de­mann (17) just as he was start­ing to look set­tled.

A quick suc­ces­sion of wick­ets fol­lowed, be­fore Dar­ren Alder­ton (23) stead­ied the ship. Dar­ren’s in­nings was not enough to save the War­riors, with Aaron Re­gan (3/1 from 2 overs) mak­ing light work of the War­riors tailend to see Val­leys claim vic­tory by 64 runs.

This Satur­day (26th Oc­to­ber) will see the first points of the sea­son on of­fer.

Any new or re­turn­ing play­ers are wel­come as teams will re­quire ad­di­tional play­ers to make up the num­bers.

The game will be a 40 overs a side match, with the game com­menc­ing at 12:30pm at the Proser­pine Sport­ing Com­plex (Kelsey Creek Road).
