Valley Rams skipper is heartened by Wanderers upset
With successive wins, Chapman Valley-Northampton would prefer to be playing this weekend, rather than having the bye in the Bendigo Bank Cricket League.
But captain Hayden Dawson is happy enough. After big losses to Sportsmans and Towns, CVN defeated Bluff Point followed by last week’s upset over Wanderers.
“The Wanderers game was a great team win and awesome to finally beat them after so long,” Dawson said. “Was so pleased with how well Alan Dean bowled into the wind and he leaves the district (he is moving to Albany) on a good note.”
Another star with his wicketkeeping and the bat was Axis Hutchinson. Dawson hinted he might retain the gloves.
“I think he’s the best man for the job (seven catches in two games), though he’s handy in the field with his athleticism,” Dawson said.
“I wasn’t concerned in last week’s chase because we made a fast start and after we lost a few wickets, Axis and Crippsy (Andrew Cripps) settled and got us home.”
Cricket action starts tonight with Wanderers against Towns in a Young Motors T20 game from 6pm at Wonthella.
In tomorrow’s 50-over games, it is again Wanderers and Towns at GBSC Park while Sportsmans meet Bluff Point at Wonthella.
