Wakatu Black vs Nelson College White

Looking at the pitch and seeing the cracks in it Wakatu was very happy to have a bat first. Nathan got us off to a good start with a brisk 32 but his recent hernia got the best of him (pain wise) and he holed out to mid on. 41 for 1 ended up 128 allout. 6 bowled and 2 lBWs which showed the college boys were disciplined and a lack of technique from us. Skipper Gill batting at 3 ended up 44*. Sadly we also left 5 overs to spare as well.

Dropping the opening batsman 3 times and him getting 53 chasing a low total was never going to help us. A common occurrence with us at the moment which is really not helping our results. Zane bowled superbly well for his 1/32 off 8. Nathan took a great grab in close but we never looked likely with the college boys so quick between the wickets and putting us under all sorts of pressure in the field that we didn't handle. Completely out played by a slick unit on the day. College ended up getting our total 3 down with 13 overs to spare.
