CRICKET

THE week­end saw Cane­cut­ters vic­to­ri­ous over the War­riors at the Kelsey Creek Cricket Grounds.

Bat­ting first, Cane­cut­ters lost some early wickets thanks to young Matthew Hansen show­ing his older team mates the im­por­tance of line and length bowl­ing.

Liam Davies (20) and an ex­cel­lent ex­hi­bi­tion of hit­ting from Val­leys im­port Zane Smith (51) helped re­cover Cane­cut­ters to 6/148 be­fore wicket keeper Chris Don (1/19) tried his hand at bowl­ing and promptly re­moved Zane from the crease.

David Vick­ers (33) and Scott Hunter (20 not out) teamed up to get Cane­cut­ters to 198 be­fore Matthew Hansen struck again to fin­ish with the ex­cel­lent fig­ures of 4/33 from his eight overs.

Early wickets were the key to a Cane­cut­ters’ victory and early wickets they got, with Scott Hunter (3/38) re­mov­ing both open­ing bats­men to see War­riors strug­gling at 2/22 af­ter four overs.

Back­ing up from his im­pres­sive bowl­ing dis­play, Matthew Hansen (25) teamed up with his fa­ther Brett Hansen (40) to put War­riors firmly back in the match.

Wayne Smith (2/9) chimed in with the valu­able wicket of Matthew Hansen, with Hay­den Rus­sell (23) try­ing his best to re­cover from the loss of Matthew.

How­ever, it was not to be with War­riors bun­dled out for 155.

This Satur­day, March 21, will see the last round of the com­pe­ti­tion be­fore the fi­nals matches com­mence.

War­riors will take on Val­leys at 12.30pm at the Kelsey Creek Cricket Grounds.
