Ju­nior crick­eters play hard in the wet

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


PROSER­PINE’S ju­nior crick­eters were able to squeeze in a round of Fri­day af­ter­noon cricket de­spite the wet weather.

The un­der-14s cricket game con­tin­ued with the War­riors re­sum­ing on 70 runs.

Good bowl­ing from the Pirate’s en­sured a steady fall of wick­ets and con­fined the War­riors scor­ing. The War­riors in­nings were halted at 102 runs.

The Pi­rates re­sumed their in­nings on 98 runs and made short work of the five runs needed to se­cure the vic­tory.

Pirate’s bats­men Noel Waipape scored the win­ning runs just be- fore the rain swept across the Proser­pine cricket fields. The un­der-10s were also able to make a start on their game be­fore the rain.

The Proser­pine Reds squeezed in eight overs leav­ing the Proser­pine Blues stranded on 21 runs be­fore play was stopped.

The rain eased enough af­ter 5pm for the “mini crick­eters” to squeeze in a quick dou­ble wicket game.

Each batting pair was al­lo­cated two overs to score their runs and ap­ply their cricket skills. The ju­nior cricket will con­tinue this Fri­day from 4pm, weather per­mit­ting. The sea­son is set to close on Fri­day, March 21.
