Weekend Wrap – Saturday and Sunday 11th and 12th of December

After having such a successful weekend winning 5 out of 7 matches last round, the Cammers were put on the back foot this week as their opponents put on dominating displays resulting in only two wins for the green and gold.

Alongside the regular season – we also had 4 of our boys play in the representative Martin Shield competition. Read that report at the bottom of the wrap.

1st Grade | Drew w/ North Shore (RAINED OUT) | One Day Match

2nd Grade | 9/187 def Northbridge 149 @ Koola Park | One Day Match

After heavy rain throughout the week, a soft and ‘mine field’ pitch was produced at Koola Park for the second graders on Sunday and the boys were thirsty after so many cancelled games.

Being the only 2nd Grade match played on the weekend, the others all being abandoned, this was the chance for the 2’s to pick up 6 points while the others would have to settle for 3 points.

Winning the toss, Raj suspected the pitch would be worse as the day went on and elected to bat. Sirr and Grant started the innings and built a 23-run partnership before the fall of Grant’s wicket.

A composed Raj took to the crease and built a strong innings. Sirr retired injured, which led to Walker and Micky ‘The Mo’ Taylor victims of the tricky pitch. Raj notched up 58 runs before falling to a Plumb (with a capital P) LBW. Sirr’s return was short-lived, out stumped but not before scoring 31 including the team’s only 6.

Huss batted superbly reaching 24 before advancing down the pitch and being stumped. Amit and Parkie did well to bat out the innings and ensure the team surpassed 150, finishing the innings at 9/157 from the allocated 40.

New ball. Bowler’s name is Nathaniel Stokes and Northbridge didn’t know what hit them. In thundered Stokes and was devastating tearing through the top order and returning great debut figures of 5 for 24.

Northbridge middle and tail kept at it though, and ensured they weren’t too far behind, requiring 5 and over, then 4 and over. Some tight bowling by DL (1 for 29) and Huss (1 for 19) kept things tight. Northbridge had other ideas, with some great quick singles. In the end the equation was simple – 1 over, 10 runs. Who do you turn to, to bowl the final over?

Walker of course. 1st ball resulted in a single. The second ball saw the batter go for glory only to sky it straight up in the air and Col did extremely well to take the catch and secure the victory to Cammeray.

Martin Shield | 6-82 def Manly Warringah 78 | One Day Match

Representing Cammeray was Shane Henry (Skipper), Kevin Johnson, Evan Ainsle and Jack Rickard.

Our NCU boys have had a great start to the Martin Shield season with a win this past Sunday over Manly Warringah at Turramurra Memorial Park.

Losing the toss, our new Martin Shield captain Shane Henry (Cammeray) led the team out to bowl on a soft and uneven pitch.

After some early tight overs, Amitkumar Kalpe (Sydney United) took the first wicket of the day, quickly following it up with two more. Some great bowling from Tom Hewitt (North Shore – 2/13), Kevin Johnson (Cammeray – 1/10), and a great run out had the visitors reeling at 8/48.

Some late order hitting from Manly Warringah was not enough to get them to triple figures, with Todd Palmer (North Shore – 1/5) and Amitkumar Kalpe (4/22) finishing them off. MWCA all out for 78 off 35 overs.

After a short lunch break, the lads were back out in the middle and had to face some strong bowling on a difficult wicket.

Wickets fell regularly, leading our lads to be in a challenging position at 6/49, with Kevin Johnson (12) the only top order batsman to survive long enough to reach double figures. Pruneeth Gopal (West Ryde Rovers – 6*) and Michael Spackman (North Ryde RSL) saw off some hostile bowling, putting on 33 for the 7th wicket to get the team over the line. Michael led the way with 28* from 29 balls, finishing the match with a six over mid on. Final score 6/82 from 22.1 overs.

The NCU lads performed admirably to post their first win of the season. Thanks to MWCA for a great game – with a very strong bowling line-up and an uneven deck they made 78 a very difficult target to chase. Our next match will be in the new year on 16th January 2022 against Inner West Harbour NSW Churches, venue to be advised.
