B GRADE: B grade match report | Round 2
It’s always great to play against Morphettville Park because they are always such a great bunch of blokes. We bowled first and had them 3/60 after 20 overs. We expected them to lift the pace in the back half of their innings but we were happy to contain them to 9/144 on a reasonably fast outfield. Best with the ball were Alex Buersch 8 overs 2/18, Charlie Whitfield 8 overs 2/24 and Justin Calderbank 8 overs 3/31. Unfortunately we had a terrible time with the bat being dismissed for 48. Will Baird, 16 from 28 balls and JC 11 from 27 balls were the only batsmen to reach double figures. We made their bowlers look much better than they are and can only improve from this point.
D GRADE: Round 2 and the Development side entered the clash against Mitchell Park 3 without skipper Steve Davenport who missed a rare game in his 41 seasons.
We welcomed into the side 2 new players into the side, Jayden Rea making his debut and a youngster by the name of Glen Rosie!!
This was going to be a good test for our young side as last season we played against Mitchell Parks 4th side so we were stepping out against a stronger more experienced side.
Winning the toss we elected to bat first with Jarred Blenkinsop & Travis Croft once again opening the batting. With our theme for the year being to always try to improve on your previous match the skipper set the challenge for the openers to be there still at the drinks break.
Not only did they achieve this but batted through to the 29th over, putting on a partnership of 80 before Jarred was run out as we looked to lift the run rate. Jarred batted beautifully for 32 hitting 5 boundaries with some tremendous cover drives.
Rosie joined Croft at the crease & Travis holed out in the 32nd over making a brilliant 43 which included 7 boundaries. Ben Wender joined Glen at the crease and some big hitting from Rosie making 33 no saw us reach 132 in our 40 overs. Wender played some lovely shots and shows great potential at the top of the order.
The challenge was set to the bowlers to maintain good lines and length and to eliminate the 4 balls from their overs. Jarred Blenkinsop & Milo McNicholas opened the bowling and did as asked bowling tightly with both taking an early wicket to have the opposition 2 for 16.
Unfortunately they would be the only 2 wickets we would take for the innings. Jayk Sarovic & Vansh Sekhon bowled first change and bowled some very good balls. Jayk first 3 overs were very tight and should greater consistency & Vansh again confused the batsmen with his variation.
Luis Riley also bowled with good flight which he maintained even when the batsmen were looking to hit out. Jayden Rea was very active in the field and received the 2 fielding votes with Sarovic getting the other vote.
Though disappointing to lose we showed great improvement and both our Openers and Spinners received high praise from the opposition, their Captain commenting that the run out was the only way they ever looked like getting the openers out.
We look forward to this weeks challenge in the 60 over format and welcome back the skipper for what will be his 450th game for the club!!
UNDER 16’s: The lads turned up today keen to protect our 94 run lead which was always going to be tight with Morphy park having 9 wickets in hand. We bowled and fielded well and at the first drinks break had taken 3 more wickets, however the opposition had moved to 99 and with only 30 required for the win it was always going to be tough from there.
Morphettville Park reached our score in the 33rd over but our lads kept their heads up and kept plugging away, steadily taking wickets until they bowled them out for 203 in the 49th over. A win to Morphy Park by 75 runs, however with a great all round bowling and fielding performance from our lads where we made the most of our opportunities, held our our catches and played some really good cricket this morning.
Wicket takers, Ben Kean with a fantastic 4/20, Luis 2/21, Ashley 2/41, Ryan 1/31, Ben Wender 1/36. Some really tight bowling from Jayden, Josh, Joel and Aaron helped put the pressure on and they were unlucky not to snare a wicket. Catches to Ben Kean, Josh, Ryan and 2 to Aaron and a very good stumping by Joel.
In the end we simply didn’t have enough runs on the board and the lads will now work hard on preserving their wickets and running between the wickets.
We have a great bunch of young lads here who will keep learning and improve week by week. The highlight for me this week was seeing them keep their heads up and support each other right throughout the game. Good on you boys.
See you at the cricket.
UNDER 14’s: Here t’is!
Well the sun was shining and a cool breeze floating around, making for good cricket conditions at Sheidow Park Primary School. Day two of the game meant it was our turn to bat, and the message from the coaches was to value our wickets. Unfortunately Sheidow Park were given the message to take wickets, which they did. The Ramblers were all out for 82, despite being pretty level with Sheidow Park when comparing the runs scored at the end of each over. For a first game, the lads did put in a good effort and tried to get partnerships established. Well done to Thom who retired on 10 and Liam who retired on 15. Gabe also made a valuable contribution with 12 runs. Because we had not faced our 40 overs, Sheidow Park batted again, unfortunately punishing our bowlers, making 82 runs in just 10 overs. Well done to Nathan on his wicket in this second innings. Final scores: Ramblers – all out for 82, Sheidow Park 2/185 and 1/82.
UNDER 12’s: First game of the season for the U12’s was away against Coromandel green at Belair Primary School. This week’s captain James Murphy won the toss and elected to bowl.
The team bowled and fielded really well under difficult conditions with the oval being really wet.
We got off to a great start taking a wicket in the second over of the day with a fantastic delivery from James Murphy and really good catch to wicketkeeper Charlie Fisher. We steadily took wickets throughout the innings to keep Coromandel under pressure.
The team as a whole bowled really well. Some great fielding resulted in two fantastic run outs a direct hit from Euan Beavan and great team work from Aarnav Jain and Charlie Fisher getting the other one.
We were able to bowl Coromandel green out for 8-116 which was a fantastic effort. The wickets were well spread with Rohan Hurst, Josh Raymont , Jacob Parle, Lachlan Martin all taking 1 wicket and James Murphy taking 2 wickets . Well bowled Ramblers.
The batting got off to a flyer with Henry Dunk and Charlie Fisher playing some really great shots. Both of them batted extremely well retiring not out after their allocated balls. We were unlucky losing a few wickets in the middle order to some good bowling.
The Ramblers were able to fight back with Callum Hunter, Jacob Parle and Lachlan Martin all batting extremely well spending time in the middle as well as keeping the score board ticking over, with Callum and Lachlan both retiring after their allocated deliveries. All the retired batters were able to return to the crease and all continued to bat extremely well. We were finally bowled out in the 28th over for 8-105. With the top scores Charlie Fisher 30, Henry Dunk 28no and Lachlan Martin 10.
A special mention this week to James Murphy for volunteering not to bat and bowl extra overs instead. This year we are only permitted to bat 9 players which means when everyone is available 1 player doesn’t bat, but gets to bowl 6 overs instead.
Overall it was fantastic first game of the year with everyone being able to contribute. The real positive is that we beat the opposition with actual runs scored off the bat, it was just the extra’s that hurt us – which going forward we can focus on. Well played Ramblers.
UNDER 10’s: It was a day of firsts for many of the U10 players.
Five players (Eamonn, Archie, Jasper, Mitchell and Vevan) made their debut in what turned out to be a well-balanced game against ICC Sharks at Weymouth Oval.
The captain (Eamonn) won the toss for the Ramblers and elected to bowl. Archie and James put in stellar performances with the ball and kept the ICC Sharks at bay. Eamonn had a dream start with two wickets in his first game. Dylan and Bonnie were solid behind the wickets and all the players showed some good early-season skills with the bat. James was top scorer with 10 runs and the Ramblers won the game 116 runs against 95.
Both teams had lots of fun and we are looking forward to seeing the players grow and develop their skills.
