Some cricket played

2009-11-17 00:00

THERE was some cricket with the damp and patchy rain on the last Saturday of schools’ cricket, but only at three venues­ with one match being rained off after a start. Westville made amends for their loss last week against Clifton with an easy win against Northwood and Riverton annihilated Wembley. The other game was rained out at Kloof.

Westville vs Northwood

Westville bounced back with a far better display and particularly better batting up front to take the game away from Northwood, who had opted to take first knock.

Some steady bowling with wickets shared saw Northwood bowled out for 182. Shahid Ibrahim and Brandon Smith both just scoring into the 30s but few others stayed for any length of time.

Bruce Kruger scored his second ton of the term and with Tim Spence (45) supporting him in a good partnership just short of 100, Westville stormed to a nine-wicket win.

While it was a satisfying end to the term for Westville, Northwood would have been disappointed after some good cricket played this term.

Treverton vs Wembley

Treverton elected to bat in dry conditions­ in Mooi River and set about some very ordinary bowling, making a massive 369 in the allotted 50 overs.

The Wembley bowlers had no answers­ with Miguel Rodo ending on 80 and Stewart Chaperon and Michael Hanly making 72. Dean Wickham­ was also prominent, making 44.

Wembley came to the crease and floundered being bowled out for 56.

Hanly completed a good all round performance, taking four wickets for just six runs and Jason Steyn knocked over  the  tail,  ending  with  three  for 15.

Thomas More vs Kearsney II

The competent Thomas More side were surprised by some good bowling by the Kearsney second stringers and their normally strong batting fell apart.

When rain caused the match to be abandoned, they were 77 for seven wickets­.



Northwood 182 (Ibrahim 34, Smith 32).

Westville 183-1 (Kruger 103*, Spence 45*).

Westville won by nine wickets.

Treverton 369 (Rodo 80, Chaperon 72, Hanly 72, Wickham 42).

Wembley 56 (Hanly 4/6, Steyn 3/15).

Treverton won by 313 runs.

Thomas More 77-7.

Rain stopped play against Kearsney II.
