Bat­ting still Norths’ weak spot

Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT -

North City’s premier cricket team let them­selves down with the bat again on Satur­day, los­ing by seven wick­ets to Up­per Hutt.

Af­ter a string of good results in Novem­ber, North City have lost two in a row. Against Up­per Hutt at Bar­ton Oval, 110 was never go­ing to be enough.

The top or­der got starts, but noone scored more than 22 and Norths were all out in the 26th over.

Up­per Hutt took just 20.1 overs to reach the mea­gre to­tal. Aus­tralian im­port Dane Hutchin­son took 2-29 and Stu Veitch 1-23 dur­ing Up­per Hutt’s chase.

Eastern Sub­urbs, Taita, Nae­nae and Hutt Dis­tricts will play in the one-day semi­fi­nals next month.

Not enough: Dane Hutchin­son took two wick­ets, but couldn’t help North City to vic­tory.
