Luke Webb and Josh Harris opened the bowling both keeping a tight line with Luke Webb taking 3 wickets in his first 4 overs. He had the outswing moving nicely.
After the first 10 overs we had North Hobart 4/38, then unfortunetly we then ran into Nick Russell for North, no matter what we tried we just couldn't get him out.
He was well supported by S Leon putting on a partnership of over 90 runs.
Our captain Dylan Williams was the partnership breaker by bowling Leon out , the wickets fell a bit easier after that wicket with North finishing their 40 overs 8/230.
Pick of Glenorchy bowlers was Luke Webb 3/30 off 8 overs and Brodie Ackerley 2/32 off 6.
We are chasing 231 runs to win, a big ask our batting started steadily with Josh Harris and Brodie Ackerley, our first wicket fell in the 7th over and this bought Luke Webb to the crease. He bowled well and proved his batting was even better.
Wickets fell steadily around Luke and it looked like he was going to run out of partners till along came James Scott. He was lucky to be given not out off his very first ball a waist high full toss, things were not looking good before Jimmy came to the crease, he even copped a hit to the ribs, this was not going to stop him giving up his wicket.
Luke and James hit 17 runs off the second last over, making a victory even closer 3 runs needed off the last over, the boys made victory on the last ball of the match, a 74 run partnership for the last wicket, what a great effort!
North Hobart bowled 74 wides and no balls, this helped contribute to our win.
Pick of the batters Luke Webb 86 and James Scott 12 (very important runs) we are now 2 wins and a draw, a very good start to the season .
