HDD Pirates –  Loss | HDD Bears – Pending


Match Report – HDD Pirates vs Team of Rad
Result – Loss by 6 wickets

We won the toss and elected to bat today (I wasn’t there for the toss or we’d have lost it for sure). Charles made a return and opened the batting with Agnel who was unlucky to be run out for a diamond duck backing up a little too far.

Paul came to the crease and was unlucky to have creamed one straight to a fielder when he was on 4. Charles and I then put on a partnership of 70 or so before Charles retired on 51 off 30 balls.

Dave then came to the crease and was unlucky to play one on and was bowled for 1. I then had the pleasure of batting with my Dad, Joe, before I fell for 34. Imraan came in and the two of them batted really well together before Joe fell for 28 on the second last ball bringing Charles back in for the last ball. Imraan finished in 18no off 12 balls and Charles on 53no. Pirates finished 6 for 137 off 20 overs.

Now Team of Rad have been Sydney Champions for 3 of the last 4 years so we had our work cut out for us.

Dave was the pick of the bowlers taking 1/27 off 2.2 overs. Agnel finished with figures of 0/17 off 2 and I finished with 0/26 off 3. Team of Rad finished 1 wicket down for 141 after 14.2 overs.

All in all a guttsie performance against a team of grade cricketers. We’ll be better for the run. Well done boys
