Re­warded for form

Taranaki Daily News - - News -

Taranaki’s open­ing bats­man Dean Robin­son has been re­warded for his form by be­ing in­cluded in the New Zealand XI to take on Sri Lanka in a warm-up match.

Robin­son fol­lowed up a cen­tury in the open­ing round of the Hawke Cup by scor­ing a match-win­ning cen­tury for Taranaki in the Chap­ple Cup fi­nal.

Last week­end saw Robin­son score 154 for CD ‘A’ against a Tas­man se­lec­tion which would have put his name in front of the se­lec­tors for in­clu­sion in the cur­rent Plun­kett Shield round.

That was not to be but with the in­clu­sion in the NZ XI he has an­other chance to im­press.

The warm-up match is played over three days start­ing to­day at McLean Park in Napier.

Re­vi­tal Fer­tilis­ers Pre­mier Two Day Com­pe­ti­tion

In­gle­wood have taken the early lead after round one was com­pleted last week­end.

They were able to eas­ily get first in­nings points against Haw­era and seven of eight bonus points.

This week­end In­gle­wood travel to New Ply­mouth Boys High School (NPBHS).

Haw­era wel­come Strat­ford down to The Hub in the all South Taranaki clash.

Woodleigh were the only other team to score first in­nings points as they chased down Fran­cis Dou­glas Me­mo­rial Col­lege’s (FDMC) 200 for eight de­clared in­side 25 overs.

Woodleigh will face stiffer op­po­si­tion this week as they go across town to Lyn­mouth Park to take on New Ply­mouth Marist United (NPMU).

The other two games in round one, NPMU v Strat­ford and New Ply­mouth Old Boys v New Ply­mouth Boys High School, re­sulted in no re­sults due to the weather.

The fi­nal game of round two will see New Ply­mouth Old Boys travel to Fran­cis Dou­glas Me­mo­rial Col­lege.

The warm-up match is played over three days start­ing to­day at McLean Park in Napier.
