Round 4 Week 1 Results | 2019/20

A GRADE: Round 4 vs ICC at home week one
Winning the toss we elected to bat and got off to an ok start with the first wicket falling at 1/36 – both openers did a good job of seeing off their opening bowlers. 
From there it was an average day for the Ramblers with steady wickets falling and no real partnerships being established. 
Batsmen who get a mention for not giving their wicket away are 
N Work – 38 from 77 balls
Baird – 17 from 86 balls
M Smith – 14 from 62 balls

Having to bowl 10 x overs at the end of the day ICC are 1/23 and the game is currently in the balance. 
Congratulations to Josh Haussen who this game achieved 150 games and life membership of the mighty Ramblers

B GRADE: We were asked to bowl first, and despite good lines Davenport and Whitfeld endured some aggressive batting before Charlie got rid of their best bat. For the next 45 overs the match was relatively slow with the best entertainment for the team coming from witnessing Pablo scoff down Liam’s bag of spicy Cheetos only to sprint 150m to the closest toilet shortly after. Our bowlers bowled tightly and Warradale defended well. As expected in the last stretch of their innings they increased the run rate and finished on 170. Pick of the bowlers was Colin Farrell who finished with 20 overs, 10 maidens, 5/53. Al Buersch also bowled well all day to finish with 14 overs, 3/33. Tyson and Will saw out 3 overs at the end of the day and we recommence next Saturday with a win in mind at 0/3. Thanks to Liam for sub-fielding during the day.

C GRADE: C grade vs St George at Urbrae Week 1
Lost the toss and was put in to bat. We got off to a good start scoring at 3 runs per over in the first 10 overs only loosing one wicket. A solid partnership between Andrew O’keefe and Gary Handke of 75 took the total to 2 for 96 in the 28th over. The rest of the day most got of to starts but no-one went on to a big score. Jarrad Simister had a little cameo scoring 22 off 12 balls hitting a couple of monster 6’s and nearly destroying someone’s black Mercedes-Benz in the car park ! 4 for 132 after 40 at tea was a good platform to build in the last 20 overs and we did. We scored 91 in the last 20 overs to be bowled out in the 59th over for a very acceptable 223 runs. In a must win game tight bowling and fielding will give us the best chance of a victory.

D GRADE: The Ramblers Development Squad played ICC Sharks in an intriguing contest. The Sharks boys started well rattling off 100 for the loss of two wickets in the first 19 overs. Tom Donnelly worked hard and Jayk Sarovic took his first two senior wickets for the Ramblers. 
OKeefe would come I got he attack and although wicketless bowled tot Sam plans and slowed the rate. Vansh Sekhon shows a lot of promise and also bowled usefully. Under 16 Jayden Rea took the ball and bowled ver tidily to take two wickets to go with a couple of catches and a brilliant fielding effort. 13 year old pace man Josh Payne was the pick of the bowlers taking three for 13 on debut. Payne built into his spell bowling quite swiftly. Blenkinsop also bowled five controlled inexpensive overs.
The Ramblers would bowl out the Sharks for just 215 which was a tremendous effort after the average start. This week with Wayne Jones injured we are playing with just one experienced player the rest of the team under 17 years of age
We batted for 13 overs losing opener Jarred Blenkinsop on the way just when he was looking good. Travis Croft again played beautifully cover driving and cutting boundaries. 1/31 was the score at the day’s end.
Looking forward to practice this week before we resume the battle. 
Thanks to all of the parents for being out supporting their lads, thanks to Daz for umpiring

E GRADE: Playing Plympton Footballers at their home ground, Ramblers lost the toss and were sent in to bat. Opening with Gilly and Chilly we had a fair start with Gilly hitting a quick 22runs before he was bowled out. 
After the first 20overs we were 2/68 with Chilly and Brian Bates batting well. In the next 20overs Brian fell for 21runs, Chilly out for 48runs, Joel Bates and Jordan Rowley showed some competent batting against a swinging ball. But after 40overs we were still scoring well with 7/146 but wickets were falling. Then comes the tail and it certainly did wag. 
Ricko Vale took the bowling on with 32runs, Matt Potts put a couple into the next neighbourhood and then out. Jesse Hughes , Ashley Bates and Zac Howell batted superbly to finish the day well to 9/203. Alex Manning not out with a couple of hits. I am very proud of the Ramblers and the way 
we batted. A swinging ball most of the day and we kept the good ones out, and hit the ones that were loose.

UNDER 16’s: Hi everyone, Day 1 of another home game and the weather was turned on for us at Hawthorndene Oval against Flagstaff Hill.
We lost the toss, Flaggy chose to bat and our opening bowlers both bowled a ripper opening spell with the highlight being, our sub fielder, 11yo Keiran Kean (younger brother of Ben) chasing down a straight drive, knowing he didn’t have the arm for the throw and tossing the ball up for Ryan who through down the stumps from 35 metres for the runout. It was beautiful to watch and Flaggy were 1/8. Enter Sam Walton who is always dangerous with his batting and looked promising again until Josh Payne took out his middle stump with one that nipped back off the seam and quickly followed by a sharp catch to Jayden off Joel’s bowling and we had them 3/30 in the 11th over and 3/50 in the first session.
The second session was balanced much the same way with some good batting by Flaggy tempered by 4 wickets late in the session. The lads then continued their great bowling to finish Flaggy off all out for 143 in 46.1 overs. We bowled extremely well today and attached the ball in the field putting pressure on the batsmen to effect 2 runouts and while we let ourselves down a little with 5 dropped catches, the lads were smart in their field settings and kept creating chances to restrict the runs to a gettable total. In reply we are 0/4 off 1 over.
Catches today to Joel, Jayden and Aaron, runouts by Ryan/Keiran and Aaron/Ashley and wickets 1 each to Ben Kean, Aaron, Josh, Joel, Ashley, Jayden and 2 to Luis. Well done lads we look forward to chasing down the total next Sunday. Cheers and see you at the cricket. Daz

UNDER 14’s: Sunday dawned fine and sunny, just chilly in the shade! The Ramblers won the toss and elected to bowl. After bowling and fielding well on Friday, the team backed up with a similar effort today. The chat rarely died down, with lots of encouragement on offer. Our team made the Coromandel Valley Red Team work for most of their runs and pounced on many a ball they thought they could score from. Well done to Gabe who bowled 6 overs and finished with 3 wickets, 3 maidens, 10 runs off for an economy of 1.67. He also took two catches. Brad’s figures of 3 overs, 2 maidens, 1 run off with an economy of 0.33, are definately worthy of placing on the highlight records. With Liam, Nathan and Patrick taking wickets and everyone else trying hard to bowl tight, it made for a good game to watch. Thanks to our substitute fielder, James, who also chipped in by taking a good catch. Coromandel Valley Red finished 8/152 off their 40 overs, with the stage set for a good run chase next Sunday.

Our Under 12 and 10 sides both had byes this round and will be back out next week vs Port Noarlunga and Coromandel.
