Finals Day Results - 12/4/14

Eastern Suburbs (W) 135/10 (Gareth Powell 4/20, Jared Roberts 3/26) LOST TO East Shirley (Canterbury) 136/8 (Tim Hampton-Matehe 46, Ben Hanham 41*) by 2 WICKETS.

Eastern Suburbs once again won the toss and decided to bat first in the final of the NZCT National Club Champs. Things started on a bad note when Jeremy Dean top edged a pull shot first ball of the innings and a good catch was taken running back by Ben Hanham. None of the East’s batsman really got going today and at 5/55 things weren’t looking very promising. They battled away and managed to get 135 in the end. There was some really good tight bowling in the middle over’s by the medium paces, Gareth Powell was the pick of the bowlers with 4/20 off his ten overs.

In reply East Shirley were on the back-foot from the outset and were in deep trouble at 5/34. A crucial 50 run partnership from Hampton-Matehe and Hanham made things a lot easier for the men from Christchurch. Some lower order help was needed to get them over the line in a very nerve-wrecking low scoring game. Ben Hanham saw his team home and was a well-deserved winner of the man of the match award.

Suburbs/New Lynn (Auckland) 323/10 (Jeet Raval 106, Ben Hick 41, Reece Young 39, Jonny Basett-Graham 32, Sean Solia 49, Michael Snedden 3/81, Nick Beard 3/52) BEAT Albion (Otago) 282/10 (Chris Harris 34, JR Glenn 95, Nick Beard 54, Jeet Raval 3/68) BY 41 RUNS

Greytown (CD) 208/10 (Paul Lyttle 30, Ben Foster 74, Jonny Wilkinson 4/74) DEFEATED Pukekohe-Metro (ND) 82/10 (Seth Rance 7/44) BY 126 RUNS.

So the standing from the tournament are as followers:

1.East Shirley - Canterbury

2.Eastern Suburbs - Wellington

3.Suburbs/New Lynn - Auckland

4.Albion - Otago

5.Greytown – Central Districts

6.Pukekohe-Metro – Northern Districts

Day Five Results - 12/4/14

Eastern Suburbs (Wellington) 272/10 (Josh Brodie 60, Jamie Gibson 34, Josh McLauchlan 40, Andrew Fullerton-Smith 53, J Roberts 5/65) BEAT East Shirley (Canterbury) 145/10 (Tim Papps 46, Ken McClure 45, Jamie Gibson 3/18, Lance Dry 3/18)

After a good all round display yesterday Eastern Suburbs decided to bat first and get a total on the board. As usual most of the batsman contributed with Josh Brodie (60) and Andrew Fullerton-Smith (53) top scoring. Jared Roberts was the best bowler for East Shirley picking up 5/65. In reply East Shirley  started reasonably but then lost a few quick wickets and found it really tough to get back on track. They lost wickets as just partnerships starting building and in the end were all out for 145 in the 35th over. Tomorrow the same two teams will meet in the final to see which club will be crowned the best club in New Zealand.

Pukekohe-Metro (ND) 108/10 (Seth Rance 4/37, Steve Coleman 3/26) LOST Greytown (CD) 109/1 (Mark Childs 76*) BY 9 WICKETS.

Suburbs/New Lynn (Auckland) 204/10 (Hick 33, Bassett-Graham 44, Davies 41, Cuttance 3/46, Craig 3/49) LOST BY Albion (O) 207/5 (Mark Craig 73, JR Glenn 64, Michael Bates 3/39) BY 5 WICKETS.

Day Three Results - 10/4/14

Albion (Otago) 310/7 (Mark Craig 44, Nick Beard 78, Chris Harris 63) BEAT Greytown (CD) 270/10 (Paul Lyttle 53, Seth Rance 49, Tim Lucas 88, Nick Beard 4/36)  BY 40 RUNS.

Suburbs/New Lynn (Auckland) 253/10 (Jeet Raval 138) BEAT East Shirley (Canterbury) 199/10 (Ken McClure 41, Hamish Teale 37, Jared Cookson 37, Josh Presland 3/36) BY 54 RUNS.

Suburbs/New Lynn were the only team brave enough to win the toss and bat first. Jeet Raval found his straps early and took to the East Shirley bowlers but he was not supported well by the rest of the team. He controlled the innings with 23 fours and one six and scored his 138 off just 130 balls. Coming out to bowl Suburbs/New Lynn put East Shirley on the back foot straight away dismissing both openers for ducks. It was always hard coming back from a poor start (0/2) but they did well and the middle order put a few good partnerships together but in the end they fell 54 runs short.. This makes things interesting as there are now three teams on six points and any team could still win the title.

Eastern Suburbs (Wellington) 429/10 (Jamie Gibson 146, Josh McLaughlan 85, Jeremy Dean 59, Sam McLaughlan 45, Josh Brodie 31, R Somani 4/87) BEAT Pukekohe-Metro (ND) 122/10 (Jamie Gibson 6/43) BY 307 RUNS.

Day Two Results - 9/4/14

 

Pukekohe-Metro (Northern Districts) 205/10 (Kevin Farrell 30, Jonathon Keen 56, Corey Hunter 42) LOST TO Easts Shirley (Canterbury) 208/9 (Ken MClure 57* , Ash Vodnala 4/36)  BY 1 WICKET.

 

After a very shaky start Pukekohe-Metro put together a few useful partnerships lower down the order after being 6/81. They did well and kept the bowlers under pressure and were eventually bowled out for a competitive 205. In reply Easts Shirley were kept at bay by some tight Pukekohe-Metro bowling. The game was in the balance at 6/140 off 36 overs and it was up to the lower order to chip away at the total. With runs needed off the last over and only one wicket left the game could have gone either way until Ken McClure finished the game in style by hitting a four and a six to finish off proceedings.Great game and a great fight by the boys from Northern Districts.

 

Albion (Otago) 109/10 LOST TO Eastern Suburbs (Wellington) 111/2 (Jeremy Dean 36, Josh Brodie 37) BY 8 WICKETS.

 

Greytown (CD) 130/10 (Steve Coleman 31, Gordon Reisima 32) LOST TO Subrubs/New Lynn (Auckland) 131/4 (James Parslow 36) BY 6 WICKETS.

Day One Results - 8/4/14

East Shirley (Canterbury) 255/10 (Leo Carter 117, Tim Papps 52, Nick Beard 4/33, Michael Snedden 3/33) DEFEATED Albion (Otago) 238/10 (JR Glenn 53, Nick Beard 49, Chris Harris 53, Tim Ford 45, Jared Roberts 3/51, Dexter Marsh 4/35)

Leo Carter stole the show with a 117 off 82 balls including 10 massive sixes and nine fours. He was well supported by captain Tim Papps with no other batsman passing 20 runs.   Albion were on the back foot from before they went into the lunch interval as the Easts Shirley opening bowlers restricted them to 30/5 at lunch. After lunch Albion came back well and an upset looked on the cards after a 90 run partnership between skipper Tim Ford and Chris Harris. Once that partnership was broken the last two wickets fell with not much added.

Pukekohe-Metro (Northern Districts) 301/8 (Kevin Farrell 111, Ash Vodnala 95) DEFEATED Suburbs/New Lynn (Auckland) 168/10 (Jeet Raval 54 , Michael Bates 36, Ash Vodnala 3/24)  by 133 runs
