Glenorchy 205 def University 157
P. McGowan 66
K. Kannan 53
M. Orth 3/21
K. Johnson 3/31
B. Ploughman 2/18
The day started well with us winning the toss on a very good wicket at Uni and having first hit we lost an early wicket but then a partnership between Patty McGowan (playing his first game) and Koushik (Tendulkar) Kannan of 90 at a really good rate, set us up for a decent score.
Most batsman got starts but it was the evergreen Dave Whitbread who finished the innings off well with a smart (24) that got us to 205 all out (48 overs).I must also mention Kevin Johnsons solid 14 also.
So it was up to us to defend 205 which we did very well, with new ball bowlers Macca and Plough taking early wickets to put uni on the back foot early at 3/28. The Orth (playing his first game for the year) came on and took 3 very good wickets and bowled with good pace for an old man. With the spin twins Kev and Jamie bowling we knocked them over for 157.
Well done boys on a good effort and a much improved effort in the field, I think there are a lot more wins around the corner.
