Ellerslie Senior Team Reports: 11 Feb 2017

Premiers

v Waitakere @ Michaels Ave #1 (11 Feb & 18 Feb)

Ellerslie: N/a [IN PROGRESS] against Waitakere: 290 all out in 97.1 overs

A hot day and what looked like a flat wicket meant that as usual I lost the toss and we were bowling first.

We bowled very well for the first two sessions, runs hard to come by with Waitak 54/3 off 32 at lunch, and 132/4 off 68 at Tea.

A couple of dropped chances saw us fail to prevent a good partnership between their numbers 6 and 7, who upped the run rate gradually and took them past 200.

Some late hitting saw Waitak reach a pretty good total of 290, all out in the final over of the day.

Jeremy Myers and Dipesh Patel both picked up 3 wickets a piece, with Jeremy unlucky not to take more.

The game is well poised heading into day 2.

President's Grade

v Suburbs New Lynn @ Michaels Ave #2 (11 Feb)

Ellerslie: 166-1 in 22.2 overs (Russell Weerasinghe 105*[37], Vikram Khanna 21*, Peter Davis 19*) WON against Suburbs New Lynn: 166-7 in 35 overs (Ron Heywood 3/42 of 7) by 9 wickets

Well, it was the Russell 'hit the ball out of the park' show. Russell reached 105* with a reverse sweep six to claim the hundred (37 balls) and retire. To the many spectators to witnessed the carnage, and to player safety on adjoining fields, a request to expand the ovals, re-arrange blocks and build a stand has been sent to Auckland Council.
