Saints march to easy win in Sunfoil

2011-01-29 00:00

THE only match played in the Sunfoil School’s Night League, due to rain this past week was on Thursday where St Charles had an easy win against the President’s XI.

St Charles, after being asked to bat first, set a solid foundation losing their second wicket in the 23rd over with the score on 114. This was due in the main to an 87-run second wicket partnership between Robin Mitchell (30) and Dean Robinson. Robinson went on to score a century in 107 balls which included just six fours. He was undefeated on 115 at the close of the innings with St Charles posting 217 for seven in the allotted 40 overs.

He becomes the second centurion of the competition after Hilton’s Jason Shield made a ton against Michaelhouse last week.

The quick bowling of Keagan Davids and Kylin Nundlall made it difficult for the composite side’s batsmen. Only Gareth Gardner (Howick), although dropped three times, hit over the top confidently to make 46 in 43 balls. Only one other batsman reached double figures in their total of 112. Davids with two wickets, Nundlall and Devlin Dolan with three each, were the pick of the bowlers.

St Charles’s fielding, both in the air and on the ground, will have to improve if they are to advance in the competition.

Playing just before this match was the postponed game between St Charles Prep and Ladsworth in the second of the Primary 20/20 challenge.

Ladsworth, in a dramatic finish, where they won in a super over after the scores were tied, will join Merchiston in the final next Friday.


Score in brief: St Charles 217-7 (Mitchell 30, Robinson 115*). President’s XI 112 (Gardner 46, Nundlall 3/34, Dolan 3/17). St Charles won by 105 runs
