Un­der 14s se­cure strong win

Mansfield Courier - - SPORT -

BLUE skies on Satur­day greeted De­latite’s un­der 14 crick­eters at the Mans­field Re­cre­ation Re­serve.

Re­sum­ing its round two clash against Wan­garatta’s City Colts White, the boys were con­fi­dent of de­fend­ing their to­tal of 189 from the pre­vi­ous Satur­day.

Lachy Scales took the new ball and had the bats­men play­ing and miss­ing his outswinger­s.

Tom Dun­stan also opened the bowl­ing and did so with im­me­di­ate ef­fect, skit­tling the stumps with his sec­ond ball.

In his next over he found the out­side edge and keeper Max Lange took a mag­nif­i­cent div­ing catch to com­plete the dis­missal.

Dun­stan com­pleted four scin­til­lat­ing overs to snare 3/3.

Isaac Mur­ray was in­tro­duced and he too took a wicket in his first over, a fine caught and bowled.

Alec Ritchie then came on and bam­boo­zled the bats­men with his loopy leg spin­ners.

He also fin­ished with the re­mark­able fig­ures of 3/3, off his five overs, all three vic­tims caught.

Micky Bur­rows also snared a wicket with his ‘offies’.

Tidy spells of bowl­ing were also com­pleted by De­clan Cal­la­han, Jake Berry, Luke Ber­ri­man, Cody Ge­orge, Prabh Sandhu and Billy Dun­stan.

Af­ter hand­ing the gloves over to Berry at the drinks break, Lange also had a bowl.

Berry com­bined with Mur­ray to com­plete a runout.

Af­ter be­ing 4/18 at the 10 over mark Colts, to their credit, stead­ied their in­nings to keep De­latite hon­est.

They were dis­missed for 62 in the 36th over.

This was a strong per­for­mance across the board from the team, with Tom Dun­stan tak­ing out the O’Mal­leys Pizza award for his 13 runs against the new ball last week, and his 3/3 with the new ball this week.
