St Peter’s Cam­bridge 1st XI played Reid & Har­ri­son Hin­uera A, in the first day of a two-day match in the Waikato Val­ley Cricket Cham­pi­ons Tro­phy com­pe­ti­tion.

The match was played at St Peter’s in Cam­bridge on Satur­day.

Bat­ting first, St Peter’s progress was slow and a 72 run, 3rd wicket part­ner­ship helped them post a re­spectable first in­nings to­tal of 190 scored at a rate of 3.01 runs per over.

All the Hin­uera bowlers did their job well with Ja­son Rusk the stand out tak­ing four wick­ets.

With 152 min­utes of play­ing time re­main­ing in the day when Hin­uera started their in­nings the goal was to achieve a first in­nings lead by the end of the days play.

This was ac­com­plished as when stumps were drawn at 6pm, Hin­uera had reached 207 for the loss of 6 wick­ets with opener Ryan Wil­son af­ter be­ing dropped from the first ball he faced top scor­ing with a well com­piled 75.

With Hin­uera al­ready guar­an­teed to be in the Cham­pi­ons Tro­phy fi­nal and by at­tain­ing the first in­nings lead over St Peter’s, it has all but se­cured a home fi­nal at Pohlen Park over the week­end of March 24.
