Old Ranwellians v Best Nationals 

Tuesday 26 April 2011, Victoria Park
Old Ranwellians won by 98 runs

Old Ranwellians won the toss and chose to bat first

Old Ranwellians: 172 for 6 in 16 overs
James Eaton 60*
David Krohn 56*
SJ 2-39

Best Nationals: 74 for 6 in 12.3 overs
SJ 15
Ben Wade 13
Ed Greening 3-16
Terence Ford 2-15

A subdued Old Ranwellian won the toss and elected to bat, hoping their promising preseason form would continue into the league. They however collapsed to 44-4 off just 4 overs, thanks to poor shot selection and suicidal running between the wickets.

Eaton (60*) dug in to play a fine innings, and with the aid of Krohn (56*) the pair put on a majestic century partnership, full of swashbuckling strokeplay and a dash of belligerence. They were aided by some poor fielding and wayward bowling that contributed 39 wides, to give a total of 172, which Best Nationals must've been disappointed to concede given the bright start they had made.

SJ and Den were the pick of the bowlers with 2 wickets a piece. Eaton's form with the bat didn't translate to his bowling, which was full of rank long hops that SJ (15) relished cutting to the boundary. The familiar sight of Ford (2-15) and Greening (3-16) ripping through the opposition batting soon prevailed, and Old Ranwellians recorded a convincing 98 run win, with exciting newcomer Adrian polishing off 7 man Best National's innings with an assured run out.

Best of luck to Best Nationals for the coming season, and to Old Ranwellians who have plenty of work to do to tighten up their batting and fielding in the coming summer.
