On a hot day where the out field looked pretty slick the boys were split on whether to bat or bowl, that decision was made for us as Hadlee Development won the toss and put McMillan into bat. Adam Pankhurst  (22) and Harry Croy (35) got us off to a great start with some nice stroke making. Flyn Bainbridge (54 off 36 balls) was well supported by Murphy Robinson (20) and put on a solid partnership to leave McMillan well positioned to launch in the second 20 overs. Connor Stewart (45) led the charge and other batsmen all contributed to set a formidable total of 249/8. Rory Grove finished with the best figures for Hadlee with 2/27.

Hadlee then set about the chase with a great opening stand with Fraser brown 49* and Seamus McCulloch 60. At the halfway mark Hadlee were right on track. However, with the change of batsmen and some tight fielding and bowling the Hadlee run rate slowed down and pressure to score runs quickly began to build. Joey Pawson (30) was working hard to lift the run rate but fell victim to a rocket arm from Flynn Bainbridge who threw the ball in from the boundary to leave Joey short of his ground. This was one of two run outs that Flynn was involved in.

All bowlers bowled well with a focus on good line and length. Although one feature of the game was the large number of dropped chances by both. A very good game with Hadlee making a great effort to chase down a big total and finishing on 206/4.


Fleming Development v Astle Development

Fleming Development 164/7

Tom Anderson         47


Bradley Prescott      2 for 24 off 4 overs

Nick Smith                 2 for 9 off 4 overs

Kaine Hartley            1 for 8 off 3 overs


Astle Development 158 all out

Charlie Croy              29

Lewis Whiteside       27


Mitchell Tait             1 for 8 off 4 overs

Nick Ferguson          1 for 9 off 3 overs

Tom Anderson          1 for 9 off 3 overs


With a slightly damp pitch and outfield Astle Development won the toss and elected to bowl. Fleming Development made a good steady start, but picked the run rate up around the middle stages of their innings thanks to Tom Anderson top scoring with 47. Jacob Frost also made a good contribution of 27. Mitchell Tait helping the team out at the death with 20 not out.

Nick Smith and Bradley Prescott both took two wickets each for Astle. At the end of the innings Fleming finished up with 164/7.

Both teams felt reasonably confident at the halfway point in the match, and it always had the feeling that it would be game on!

Astle began their chase slowly but maintained wickets and had both openers retire. The pressure began to build through the middle stages of the innings and the required run rate was hovering around five an over. Lewis Whiteside top scored with 27, but the run rate required continued to increase putting pressure on new batsmen coming to the crease. Because of this Fleming were able to create pressure and were rewarded with a couple of run outs. Wickets began to tumble at regular intervals which made the run chase more difficult. In the end Astle were bowled out in an exciting finish falling just short at 158. It was a good close match played in good spirits by both teams.

In an excellent game of cricket played in high spirits Fleming Emerging secured victory in 38th over a valiant Astle Emerging set a challenging 190 to win from the 40 overs. The bowling and fielding effort demonstrated high energy and effort and it was a combination of these factors which limited Astle to 189 when at stages throughout their innings well over 200 looked likely. Our Batting effort got underway slowly and after the loss of a couple of early wickets a solid partnership between Campbell Buck and Jack Hart set a good platform for Noah Harmer to enter the game. 64 runs later at a run a ball and we were well and truly back in the game, Campbell Bucks watchful 30 not out and Finn Arnold's powerful 54 off just 28 balls got Fleming across the line. The boys enjoyed their day and no doubt will be looking forward to another challenge next week.


McMillan Emerging v Hadlee Emerging

McMillan Emerging 191 all out


Ben Evans                  21

Harry Eastwick         62


Alex Boot                  2 for 20 off 3 overs

Logan Yates              2 for 27 off 5 overs

Matthew Munro      1 for 8 off 3 overs

Stefan Marasinghe  1 for 10 off 3 overs


Hadlee Emerging 174 all out

Edwin Newcombe-Rogers       34

Finn Hanrahan                            49


Ed Leonard          3 for 25 off 4 overs

Harry Tullett             0 for 7 off 4 overs

Seth Allen                  3 for 24 off 4 overs

Connor Arnold    1 for 3 off 2 overs


McMillan Emerging started well with Tom Butterfield and Harry Eastwick opening, until Alex Boot bowled Tom and then after a quickfire 9 runs from Ben Evans he was caught making McMillan 44/2. A partnership between Harry and George McFaull (21) developed until George fell caught of the bowling of Harry Boyle. Harry E was getting into the groove of batting out in the middle and ticked over 11 4's in his innings. Harry went through a few partners and after getting tired out in the hot sun he was bowled by Angus Wilson for 62. McMillan were 154/6 at 25 overs. There were lots of overs to go for McMillan to build other partnerships, but due to some tight bowling from Matthew Munro and Josh Finlayson amongst others, and a few misfires from the batsmen the run rate slowed and there were not too many lasting partnerships. Harry Tullett came to the crease and gave the ball a push scoring 20 runs off 16 balls, scoring the only 6 of the match. With 7 overs still to play, Harry's big hits came to an end, caught off Alex Boot who finished with 4 wickets.

Hadlee Emerging lost early wickets with George Male bowled by Aaryan Thakur after a hard hitting 14. Stefan Marasinghe put up some resistance but then two quick wickets in the 7th over by Seth Allen set him up for a hat trick which did not transpire. Hadlee's middle order then steadied the ship as Edwin Newcombe-Rogers and Finn Hanrahan established a steady partnership. Edwin then got a hit to the hip and retired hurt. Finn Hanrahan kept Hadlee in the game posting 53 over two sessions while others fell around him. Hadlee's score was slowly closing in on the target but after Finn fell Hadlee lost regular wickets, Ed L collecting 3 scalps. Edwin came back in as last man standing and Hadlee got within 16 but then Edwin was caught off the bowling of George McFaull.
