The Rock-itt : April 2010
Sadly with the inclement weather, only 9 overs were possible and maybe fortunately for the Manly Boys who had leaked 56 runs for only one wicket in that short time due to some remarkable hitting the match was abandoned despite keenness to reduce the number of overs. By midday the outfield was under water. The UAE side apparently had some good games against the other Sydney clubs they played against but they were kind enough to present the Club and players a wonderful trophy as record of their visit. Only Matt Alexander, Reece Hodge, Nick McCallum Toomey and Dylan Marshall got to bowl with Hodge claiming the only wicket and some accompanying hard hitting. The Club looks forward to next year's UAE tour and hopes that these young Manly Boys will be able to learn how to play against sides from the sub continent. Warringah Cricket Club Inc. (Affiliated with the Sydney Cricket Association) Home of Shires Cricket on the NORTHERN BEACHES Warringah Cricket Club was not to be outdone and hosted the Kerala team in a midweek afternoon T20 at Mike Pawley Oval, in what was slated to be the Indian's last game in Australia before they flew off to New Zealand. Warringah, captained by Simon Lyon, and featuring two Club Sponsors, Ian Rae from GHR Accounting in Mona Vale, and Russell Wyatt, current Captain of the Warringah Masters XI plus David Gainsford, former Club Coach, invited the touring side to bat first on a good 4th day wicket and managed to restrict the visitors scoring to just 108 off their 20 overs. Spin bowlers Gainsford and Roger Curry had the most effect with numerous catches being held in the deep and a couple of stumpings by 2nd Grade Keeper, Nick Burrows. Burrows it was who was awarded the Man of the Match prize for a hard hit 30 before he was forced to retire. His opening partner, Ian Bagman Rae, struggled to find the timing that he had shown in pre match net sessions at Narrabeen and had to retire with a pulled hamstring. Former Club star, Geoff Isaacs was caught on the long on boundary by Ramprakash, who was consistently the visitors' star player. Kutty as always was in the news but the Kerala side looked tired and the total was easily past with 5 overs remaining. The after match Presentation was well received and the Kerala Management were most generous with gifts and compliments. SEASON ROUND UP Warringah managed to get three teams into the Finals series; 1st, 2nd and 4th Grades, with 3rd Grade narrowly missing out. Manly's Grade sides 1 & 3 were the only ones to qualify for finals and play St George (away at Hurstville Oval) and Fairfield Liverpool at Manly Oval. We wish good luck to all teams playing in the Finals.
