Ellerslie Cricket Club

Ellerslie Senior Team Reports: 18 Mar 2017


v North Shore @ Devonport Domain (18 Mar & 18 Mar)

Ellerslie: 96 all out and 62/7 LOST FIRST INNINGS against North Shore: 167/8 declared

After day one was abandoned, I duly lost the toss on a wicket that looked like it would turn, and we were batting.

A poor start saw us 24/3 before a partnership between Aditya (32) and Matt (40) saw us reach 92/3. We then suffered a massive collapse to be all out for 96.

Our low total gave Shore the opportunity to score some quick runs in the middle session, which they duly did, declaring at tea with a 71 run lead to give us 32 overs to see out the day and save some face.

The batting lineup again failed, placing pressure on the lower order to see us to stumps 7 down for another disappointing days cricket.

Performance of the day: Aditya Edekar 32 and 35

President's Grade

v Takapuna @ Michaels Ave #3 (18 Mar)

Ellerslie: 232-7 of 24.2 (Russell 77, Peter D 44*, Vikram 43, Robbie 32) WON against Takapuna: 231-6 of 35 (Nalin 2-23 of 7. David W 2 Catches. ) by 3 wickets.

Ellerslie Presidents needed a win to ensure home ground advantage in the Championship final. Ellerslie won the toss and elected to bowl, well ... let's just say we bowled, to all parts of the pitch and some not even hitting the pitch. Takapuna at the turn were 121/2 and looking to go big. In the second session, Nalin produced the tidy overs, wickets commenced to fall and Ellerslie restricted Takapuna to 231 - 6.

Two fantastic highlights from the batting... Russell's 77 of 26 balls and Peter D, carrying his bat seeing the target chased down with 4 balls to spare. Supporting roles from Vikram and Robbie and Ellerslie got the win. Well Done - One Win to Go.


Performance of the day: Russell 77[26], Peter D 44* Carried his bat.
