Regents v Best Nationals     

Monday 26 July 2010, Victoria Park
Regents won by 5 wickets

Regents lost the toss and were put into field

Best Nationals: 122 for 5 in 16 overs
Chisolm 50*
Dinesen 3-17-2
Donnellan 3-29-2

Regents: 123 for 2 in 14.2 overs
Mortimer 50*
Walsh 45
Dinesen 1*

A highly enjoyable game despite the weather, this clash of two of the titans of the VPCCL was eventually won by Regents. Inserting themselves into bat, Best Nationals were hampered by the early loss of two of their batsmen, one bowled by Salmon Jr., and the other injured whilst running.

Despite this, a decent run rate was established, and a score of 140+ was attainable at the halfway stage. However, the Regents' bowlers kept chipping away, taking wickets at fairly regular intervals, and the run-rate inevitably slowed as the lower order batsmen entered the fray.

An excellent knock by Chisolm helped set a target of 122 - getable, but also defendable. The descending gloom set in, and Regents lost an early wicket, but after this, Walsh and Mortimer batted though the rain to put Regents within sight of a 3rd victory, only for Walsh to run himself out with 2 runs needed.

Dinesen tried his level best to deny Mortimer his 50, but was sent back off the last ball of the over whilst trying to steal the strike. Mortimer duly capped an excellent game with his 50, and Dinesen dug out the last run through point.

Much thanks to Best Nationals for a game played in excellent spirits despite the damp.
