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.

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

The eagle-eyed will have noticed, amongst the erection of football and rugby posts in Hagley Park and our suburban sports fields, patches of  tilled earth fenced off and secure  from the rigours of our winter codes.

Metro Cricket, through our Turf Advisor Chris Lewis and Terrafirma Turf, has carried out its autumn renovation programme at various schools and clubs. These last two weeks, amidst perfect weather for this activity, have seen spraying out, verticutting, cleaning away the foreign matter, seeding , fertilising and top-dressing with our local Heathcote clay. In addition, we are very fortunate to have Rupert Bool, head grounds custodian at Hagley Oval, carry-out a full programme on the Hospital Corner grass blocks for the first time in some years.

With a good spring growth and ongoing maintenance from our hard-working club and school grounds staff, players should notice playing surfaces that play with faster and more even bounce.

Last round for Espresso Carwash

The last round has been completed and the bats and pads have been stored away in the garage for another winter, along with numerous Espresso Carwashed cars; now only five cars await their Espresso carwash.

In an unusual move, two people have won the award from the St Albans-Riccarton match such was this performance. Veteran left armer Michael Davidson and rookie right arm quick Kyle Jamieson combined to produce the bowling performance of the Metro club season for St Albans. In tandem, they cut a swathe through the hapless batting line-up to have their former Hagley neighbours packing their kit for a paltry 17 runs!

Make no mistake; this was a performance about outstanding pace bowling and not frivolous batting. Not one batsman threw away his wicket; pace, accuracy and swing combined to unravel the batsmen. From the Riccarton opener shouldering arms to a desperate parry to gully by the number 11, the St Albans duo was unrelenting. Davidson completed a fine Two-day competition by taking 6 for 10 while his youthful lieutenant snared 4 for 7. This was truly a worthy performance for sharing the Espresso Carwash award.

In the Marist Harewood-Old Boys Collegians match, there were a number of decent performances including Dan Thomas continuing his rich vein of bowling form to Theo van Woerkom’s spinning magic but this Espresso Carwash award goes to the resurgent form shown by Marist’s Harewood’s leading batsman in Jeff Case. His first turn at the batting crease saw his 91 allow his team to declare within range of their opposition and his brave 61 as Marist Harewood chased the runs in the second innings almost saw his team secure the outright; a fine batting double worthy of the Espresso Carwash award.

The promising Blake Coburn caught the eye at Sydenham Park as his “bowling in a blender” style allowed Burnside West to stall the advance of a bemused Sydenham as he finished with the excellent figures of 5 for 28. Blake made a further bowling contribution in the second innings with 2 for 41 as Sydenham fell short in its chase for outright victory. Well done on your Espresso Carwash award!

The final award for the season goes to Brent Findlay who powered his way to 88 not out which allowed Lancaster Park Woolston to set East Shirley an imposing fourth innings chase. In a commanding batting performance, Brent butchered the spin bowling at Burwood as he threatened the nearby neighbours when he took 24 off his final over. Having scored 32 in the first innings, Brent claimed 4 for 43 and 1 for 20 at the bowling crease in a fine all-round performance demanding of the Espresso Carwash award.
Espresso Carwash has been an excellent sponsor of Christchurch Metropolitan Cricket and Canterbury Cricket and we are proud to be a partner of them.
