Play­ers put feet up for hol­i­days

Midwest Times - - SPORTS - Howzat

Cricket in Carnar­von goes on hol­i­days un­til early next year.

Gas­coyne will play two T20 games when the Rio Tinto com­pe­ti­tion re­sumes on Fe­bru­ary 9.

The fi­nals of the short­ened ver­sion of the game will be played the fol­low­ing week and re­sults of the two matches will de­ter­mine the par­tic­i­pants.

In the fi­nal con­test be­fore Christ­mas, Gas­coyne won the toss and elected to bat in their bat­tle with Whalers. Gas­coyne com­piled 9/144 off their 45 overs.

They were in trou­ble early but the tail wagged to get to that score.

Jar­rod March, bat­ting at No.8, was 32 not out in a very good knock which showed he had im­proved since he last played in Carnar­von.

Pe­dro Leco, also back af­ter be­ing away, made a very handy 20.

Nic Tuitupou, bat­ting at 11, chimed in with a spir­ited un­beaten 27, which in­cluded a lovely six.

For Whalers, Xavier van Don­gen snared 4/7 off seven overs in a good dis­play.

Im­prov­ing young­ster Jet Forbes took 2/17 off six overs.

Kieran Cooney, in his bowl­ing de­but, grabbed 1/12.

Whalers got the tar­get in the 37th over to fin­ish on 7/150.

In one of his sea­sons, Guil­iano Condo top scored with a match­win­ning 68 as opener.

He was the dif­fer­ence be­tween the sides.

Only Tom van Don­gen Jr with 21 and Garth Stalker, who fin­ished un­beaten on 15, as­sisted him.

Gas­coyne’s Michael Plumb took 3/11 off five overs.
