Muddies tie with Cassowary Coast
THE NQ Homes Muddies second grade side took on the newly formed Cassowary Coast team at Edmonton on Sunday in the first of two T20s.
Some umpire confusion and lack of a scoreboard saw the game tied with Cassowary Coast 8/107 and Muddies 6/107.
Muddies captain Ben Shrimpton won the toss and sent Cassowary Coast in to bat.
Ben himself would make the first breakthrough of the day removing the Cassowary Coast opener in the sixth over with the score at 32.
Wickets fell at regular intervals with only one of the Cassowary Coast batsmen having any real impact to get them to 8/107.
The pick of the Muddies bowlers was the club’s leading wicket taker for the year Luke Twomey with 3/8 from two overs. Ben Shrimpton 2/12(2) and Keel Sorensen 2/16(4) were the other wicket takers.
Muddies openers Ben Shrimpton 21 (26) and Kaiden Sorensen 22 (21) started strongly with the first wicket not falling until the ninth over.
First drop batsmen Nick Rayner was the pick of the Muddies batsmen with 34 (32) including four boundary’s.
A run out from the last ball of the game saw the scores tied at 107 with Ryan Stanaway 15 (28) the not out batsmen.
Captain Ben Shrimpton eyes the ball.
Sharks Under 9 are all smiles after their win.
