Wales v India.
Today we played India at the Maroochydre CC on the Ron McMullen Oval India won the coin toss and elected to field first.
Another wonderful game of cricket today against India over 60s.
Wales won by 166 runs in the 33rd over.
An outstanding performance. Wales set a target of 239 for 5. Which included an incredible 101 of Swansea Cricket Clubs Mike Hayden. An innings of shear class.
Fellow opening bat and Captain, Richard Harris of Cresselly Cricket Club scored an excellent 50 off 85 balls and St Ismael’s cricketer Stuart Carpenter scored 50 off an incredible 36 balls. Great early-order batting.
Wales set a target of 239 for 5 off the 45 overs. A great first half of cricket, a BIG second half was needed.
India’s wickets fell at regular intervals with Gareth Edwards again setting the standard with his 3 wickets for 13 off 6 overs.
The consistent Colin Tucker of Duffryn Cricket Club had figures of 2 wickets for 21 off 9 overs and Stephen Durston of Pembroke Cricket Club, 2 wickets for 24 off 8 overs.
The other 2 wickets were taken by Richard Harris 1 for 6 and Paul Webb 1 for 0.
An excellent all-round bowling and fielding performance.
A great start to the tournament. Two wins in two games.
Thank you Judith Tucker & Janice Webb for scoring.
